Always Have A Dream

Always have a dream
Forget about the days when its been cloudy,
but don't forget your hours in the sun.
Forget about the times you've been defeated,
but don't forget the victories you've won.
Forget about mistakes that you can't change now,
but don't forget the lessons that you've learnt.
Forget about misfortunes you encounter,
but don't forget the times you luck has turned.
Forget about the days when you've been lonely,
but don't forget the friendly smiles you've seen.
Forget about the plans that didn't seem to work out right,
but don't forget to always have a dream.

Friday Foto Finish Fiesta

Photo Phinish Phriday
This picture was taken about 6yrs ago, but It was a great time. It was Thanksgiving and the whole family was able to get together. Everybody lives at least 70 miles or so away from each other, all except my brother & his wife, they live in Tennessee. So they don't get up here to Michigan very much. This pic was also taken when Cody was the only grandchild. I always love it when everyone can get together! Makes for fun times. I just wish we all lived closer. I can't wait now to get another picture of the whole family, now that there are 5 grandchildren!! Cody loves being the oldest of them all. He plays so well with them!
Everyone take care & smile!!  ;0)

Stop by Candid Carrie and play along with Photo Phinish Phriday

Oh my goodness--now we have Jacob, Sarah and Adam and Nicci's Mike (who was gracious enough to take the picture and not be in it as they weren't married yet) and their little Luke. Wow--how we have grown. And yes, Cody is the best biggest cousin ever--he is the "Pied Piper" of the Kaloz grandchildren.
Thanks for a beautiful reminder, Julie. Love you. Mom

Gosh, that looks funny too, to see that spot without our railing on there...

That looks like one big ol' happy healthy group. I love impromptu pictures where everyone just piles together. And that other picture you did looks really cool (the snow jacket one) ... nice job, great eye!
