Humor & Hope

Humor & Hope
Live every day with hope and a sense of humor.

Then, take your “creation” lists and tape them on the calendar page one year from today’s date. There’s nothing more to do for one year, until that day rolls around.

On that day, take out your lists, and you’ll be surprised at how much of what you wanted to create you’ve accomplished. Richard and I find this a delightful, encouraging process to do twice a year. We include lots of friends in the New Year’s Eve ceremony but keep our wedding anniversary ceremony private.

 

Our New Year’s Wish For You
We wish for you
A table of friends
Where the food is abundant
and the fun never ends

A holiday bright
With peace and good cheer
That continues to bless you
Throughout the new year.

May laughter and love
Find you day after day
And may many blessings
Come swiftly your way

We wish you a new year
To make your heart sing
Where the Spirit of Love
Brings you every good thing.
Tina B.Tessina & Richard N. Sharrard

Romance is Not Necessarily Love

By

In romantic depictions of love, cute little images of cherubs and cupids abound. But Cupid, in his real incarnation, is not so sweet and cuddly. His arrows can create deep and lasting wounds, and can strike you blind and irrational in a heartbeat. A few disaster-filled run-ins with Cupid’s dart and you can readily believe that love will never work for ... Read more

Mirrors and Teachers

By

There are people I love who are easy to be around, and others I love who are more difficult for me. It’s not that they’re bad people, others get along with them fine, and, actually, so do I.
