When I stand before God at the end of my life,
I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say,
"I used everything You gave me."

Monday Musings... Summertime!

Ah, summer, what power you have
to make us suffer and like it.
~Russel Baker

Oh, the summer night
Has a smile of light
And she sits on a sapphire throne.
~Barry Cornwall

Deep summer is when laziness finds respectability.
~Sam Keen

Being a child at home alone in the summer
is a high-risk occupation.
If you call your mother at work thirteen times an hour,
she can hurt you.
~Erma Bombeck

Summer is the time when one sheds
one's tensions with one's clothes,
and the right kind of day is
jeweled balm for the battered spirit.
A few of those days and you can become drunk
with the belief that all's right with the world.
~Ada Louise Huxtable
