"Poetry is not a turning loose of emotion, but an escape from emotion; it
is not the expression of personality, but an escape from personality. But, of
course, only those who have personality and emotions know what it means to want
to escape from these things." ~T. S. Eliot
I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you
did, but people will NEVER forget how you make them feel ~ Maya Angelou
I've always been drawn to things that display class, glamour, and beauty

I wish I had a camera
When we were kids we use to travel alot with my parents in the summer months and this particular summer we were in Ohio and that is where my oldest brother lives. I was about 11 or 12 and we had pulled the camper in his driveway and they plugged in so we could have electricity and all well it was getting late so Tami and I decided to go out to the camper and head to bed..when I picked my barefoot up to step on the step it ZAPPED ME AND I FLEW TO THE GROUND LIKE A FLYING ROCKET! SERIOUSLY. As I layed there trying to figure out what just happened my sister is over me thinking I was seriously hurt or even dead but I keep saying I'm OK and sat up and asked "what just happened?" Tami said "you just flew to the ground, are you OK, between tears, are you hurt?" That was the first time I believe I knew my sister loved me for me!!
Well yesterday even though it wasn't a Zap it was a FACE TO THE GROUND FALL, YEP I laid flat out on the cement at my parents house and just laid there because again I said "What just happened!!!" As I laid there Tami again is over me *giggling* asking if I was OK..then the laughter came and all you older woman know when you start *giggling* we know what happens with the bladder, I could stop laughing then my MOM comes out and ask "What are you doing down there?" just like that is where I wanted to be at the moment and we busted out laughing and laughing and as I got up, and as you know older woman, it not easy, I just ripped one that I think my mother was embarrassed to here...sorry but OMG!!! As we sat there in laughter my whole body was just frozen, not knowing what was next and then Tami had to stop because she was feeling it to..I think we laughed for a good 20 minutes before I really got up and walked to the truck to go home with my hurt pride and my embarrassment..
I wanted to share this because if you can't laugh at yourself and look at the small stuff and not take everything serious life is full of laughter and that's what makes life more bearable.
I hope you enjoyed in my laughter as I look back this morning I'm still laughing and will be for awhile.
