The importance of words

What we say to one another, not only here but elsewhere is important.

Words have the power to wound, inspire, encourage, and stimulate. So  they are important.

I would not be who I am if it weren't for the words I've read and had said to me. And those words have a ripple effect on those around us. What we share here and in our daily contact with others, sometimes gives someone a new viewpoint, something new to think about.

And words are important, YES! Else why are we here at this site talking to one another? And why are we so affected by the beauty of Shakespeare's words when he holds up mirrors for us to see ourselves?

 THIS WE SEEK...

A craddle rocked so gently
A languid hand pats sofly
A tiny mouth sucks greedy:
This is your real world.

A desk, a screen humming quietly
Dictionaries piled randomly
References searched avidly
This is my own world.

Worlds apart, we meet happily;
Different, but we care deeply;
Other truth, but we feel deeply;
This becomes our world.

Our language we discard eagerly
A common one we adopt quickly;
New concepts we explore hungrily
This is a new world.

The past remembered eventually,
History recorded faithfully:
Its mistakes avoided carefully
In our better world.

Wonderful, beautiful graphics, Bubble, and the words are as impressive, especially the one signed "ET". Is that your own composition? Thank you for the clean slate, glad to see you must be feeling better. We have kind of an icky day ahead so feeding the cats early & out for a run before it turns colder.

Good Morning, Friends! Wishing all a HAPPY DAY!  Shirley

Good Morning Everyfriend!  And thank you BUBBLE for our nice, clean, happy new Soda Shoppe!  I like all the new "welcome" pics and info. 

I'll be off to get ready for breakfast out this morning.  What's left of my high school classmates gather for breakfast once a month and now, thanks to my retirement, I'm going to be able to rejoin them.  It seems impossible that it was 67 years ago that we graduated high school and we've remained friends all those years.  There are not as many of us as there once were and it seems every time we get together lately, we spend a moment giving thanks for the life of another classmate that is no longer with us.  But those of us who remain, are still the best of friends and that's good because we share a lot of good memories, both from our school years and over the years since.

I hope you all have a lovely day!
Make it your own in everyway!

And come here to share it with us....whatever it is you do!

EDIT: Have fun, Jane... glad you are getting a chance to visit the old friends. I don't live where I went to school but at least once a year we gather and greet each other. Was the year '54?  (I don't do math if I can get out of it).

Good morning everyone..

We are expecting bad weather but the worse is to come on the weekend.

Yesterday I got caught up in cleaning out drawers and closets...ran across items that brought old memories.  Not  sure what today will bring as I would like to clean out another room...I already have a large garbage bag of clothing ready for Sally Ann and will start on another.

Bubble thank you for the new start page. Love the graphic and the powerful words in This We Seek.

Jane, enjoy your reunion. Nice to meet up with old friends and talk about the past and future!

Shirley I see you are doing your exercises. Hope you miss the icky weather.

Better get a move on...

Enjoy your day everyone and stay safe!

Good Morning,

Thank you,, Bubble, for the nice new page.

Janie,  Special friends like the ones you're meeting for breakfast are priceless.  There are 4 remaining of the "Super Six" girls who started First Grade together in 1941 and graduated h.s. together in 1953.  None of us have lived in the same town since then but we've gotten together over the years and still keep in touch via phone calls, e-mails and texts.

I'm going to my Book Club meeting this morning.  We're discussing "Boom Town", a history of Oklahoma City woven in with the story of the Thunder professional basketball team.  'Twas an interesting book and should be a lively discussion.

Wishing Everyfriend Everywhere an Enjoyable Day.

Gloria

Good morning everyone, it is morning isn't it? I was so sleepy last night I got ready for bed early, shut the TV off and put the computer to sleep and went to bed. Woke and started my day but could not figure why it was so dark out. I posted here. Had my coffee and my breakfast, still black out. Then I checked my email and one of our cyber family wrote and asked if I was OK. It was night not morning. I only slept a couple of hours but was wide awake. I had the TV on and could figure out why the shows I am used to seeing at that time had changed. Finally looked at the time on the computer and it said PM.  I keep saying I am losing it. The sun is shining Oh Happy Day.

BUBBLE  love the beautiful little girl tube with the owl. Makes me want to delete all the ones I had saved. You are so right with This We Seek. Where would we be without words? Thank you for all today's goodies.

JANE  wonderful you can get to breakfast now with your old classmates.

SHIRLEY  glad I am not the only one with an oops.

Better get a move on.
Have a good day.

The day goes by fast or maybe I am just slow!! I did get some cleaning done but do need to get into another room and purge it also. I have papers to go through now that 7 years have passed but not sure I want to get rid of most. Will deal with that tomorrow.

 Jessie just brought in 5 sticks of wood....he has two more on the ground and will likely bring them in tonight...yes Jane, he did  get a special treats for this plus hugs too!

Fed the birds again and hope they got their tummies full before the snow comes. it did snow a bit but nothing to worry about.

Have a quilt to finish and hunt up two backings for others but that too is for another day..

Gee, I am getting good at passing things off for another day. :)

There were 8 classmates and 2 spouses (who also attended our high school).  We all go back to 1953 graduation but the 8 classmates all go back to 5th grade when I moved to Lewisburg.  And one of the spouses was also in that school but a year behind us and the other spouse was in the school but 3 years behind us.  So we go back to the mid 1940s as friends.  The schools were so small then that everyone knew everyone! 

Then I spent the afternoon with my granddaughter and I'm done in!  I came home, took Mickie for a walk and then went to sleep on the couch.  I slept through 2 phone calls and 3 text messages!  Never heard them at all. 

Not gonna do another thing tonight! 

I hope your day was as interesting as mine but I hope it wasn't as tiring!

Jane, glad you had a good day, happy memories are so special. Sweet dreams.

Hugs to all and a great day tomorrow. Good night, Lloyd.  Shirley

I was true to my word.  I didn't do another thing tonight.  The zzzzs grabbed me and I napped off and on through most of it.

I'm off again to chase dreams.  I wish you all a peaceful night's sleep and a happy tomorrow.  And may God bless us, every one!

Good Morning everyone.well see no activity yet, so I will check back again after while. I took a relaxer pill and went to bed about 10:30 slept through until 4:00 AM. think those Naps through the day while watching a movie is the problem with a good night's sleep.

Lloyd

Lloyd Hammond

well I steeped out on the deck, right now it is 16º and clear, sky is full of shining stars, weather guesser is saying going to get cloudy after while. and snow tomorrow. Nancy fusses about me being a couch jockey so much,but I do not fuss about the naps she takes during the day. I just cant take the cold any more Like i used to. back when I would put on a coat with a hood on it get on the bulldozer. with the fan blowing to the rear put a piece of barn tin on both sides to funnel the heat back on my feet and legs work ten or more hours. no more those days are long gone. so do like i do stay in and stay warm. we have nice warm brick sided house with plenty insulation in it, we have a farm tap on one of the four pipe lines that cross our land. so natural gas furnace to keep us warm.Nancy keeps the t stat set on 74º. I tell her I have paid my dues. when spring temperature's get here and warm out is time enough to go to shop. Have a great day.

Lloyd

Shirley, surely you know who ET is?  ;)

Have a super day everyone. 
I had a tiring day yesterday with a very long drive out of town just to order a new wheelchair and deal with all the red tape of a mixed-up from the health services. So I am taking it easy today.

Amy

Good morning everyone...

Looks like we have our work cut out for this morning...not sure if I will get it done before or after the chiropractor appointment for Kyle. Snow is still falling o maybe wait and get it all.

Lloyd, good morning. Kyle and I were discussing the work we have done up until retirement and we both know that we can't do that anymore. I loved the work, some jobs more than others but thoroughly enjoyed it!

Better go and see how bad the driveway is...

Good morning Bubble. :)

Enjoy your day everyone.

Good Morning Everyfriend!  I slept through the night again.  I went to bed right after I posted here (I think it was a little after 11) and I slept until almost 7 without waking one time.  That pillow is definitely OUT!

BUBBLE, the only "ET" I know of is E.T. The Extra Terrestrial".  Are you quoting him?

The only thing I have on tap for today is a couple of phone calls to return.  My plan is to eat, sleep and get started on that back room.  I am NOT going to go anywhere today!

LLOYD, it sounds like you an I are doing the same thing these day....Nothing!  I think we earned it!

AMY, you earned it too but I don't think you know how to do nothing.  Come to think of it, that might turn out to be kind of boring!  I'll let you know after today!

It's almost time for the boinger and breakfast. 

I wish you all a happy day!
Make it your own in every way!

And don't forget to share it with us!

well Nancy fixed a morning Meal like we need to do all the time.one medium sausage patty one small pancake with a thick strawberry syrup she Made. was not bad very tasty. I bid you all a good day.

Good morning.  Nothing exciting happened so far this morning,

It is a pretty sunny morning, but very windy.  They are calling for a wintry mess for the week end.

My foot is better this morning, but I still won't be doing much. I just don't want to aggravate it.

Lloyd, the breakfast that Nancy made sounds delicious !  I hope you are feeling better and behaving yourself. LOL

Jane, so glad you had a good night's sleep. I have been sleeping better, but still get up a couple times.

I hope everyone has a very pleasant day.

:snowball: The snow is all cleaned up and chiropractor appointment done. The drive to town was just beautiful with the new snow hugging  the branches of the trees. Now the sun is out and soon the snow in the branches will be gone.
Played Frisbee with the pup for a while, at times the frisbee would get buried in the snow but he soon dug it out.

Jane, I think after the waltz with the snowblower I may just sis and sew.....sounds like a plan to me.

Joy, hope your foot feels better soon. Difficult to talk when your feet are hurting.

I really think I did talk myself into just sewing..works for me.. :thumbup:

Good morning everyone, guess I made up for the crazy sleep I didn't get. Woke this morning at almost 9:30  and here I am already with my coffee. Had some rain over night and looks like the sun might break through the clouds.

AMY  you "passing things off for another day" sounds like you are retired but you still work to hard to be retired. Keep getting Jessie bringing in wood and maybe she will take over that job for you?

JANE  yep you are retired when you can sleep through phone calls. I am good at that. At one time they had at least 2 schools in this town with 2 rooms and 4 grades. That  was in the ea rly 50's. My 3 went to one of them but by that time there was only first and second grades. Their father went to that school, too.

LLOYD like you I cannot take  the cold like I used to but if the sun is shining and I can sit in the sun and out of the wing I can oy the fresh air.

BUBBLE  hope the new wheel chair will be more comfortable for you. I know how tiring it is to get in a car  and go more than 15 minutes away. Takes days to get rested again.

I better get moving, just got a pnone call tha t i will ge t a CNA at 11:45 and here it is  11 already.

Have a good day.

Since no one has come forward with the identity of ET and Bubble asked if someone didn't know - ET is Bubble! 

Lot of whitecaps on Lake Michigan this morning.

The only other person I can think of who identifies himself as ET is ERIC Thomas.  If this one isn't Bubble or E.T. The Extra Terrestrial, it just might be Eric Thomas!
