My Big Brother

My brother David just look at that big smile on his face he always had it !
I cant even begin to comprehend how big that smile is in heaven today .
For almost fifty two years I was given this big smile every time I saw him with that big hug and I love you Kaye

This saying has hung over their door for many years and its so true of him and Nancy ~~ enter as strangers leave as friends ~~.
That is just the way he lived not only at home but where ever you saw him it was a instant friendship .(I saw all those friendships come from near and far to share stories of how he gave of himself too all)
As I entered into sales he would give me a lot of pointers as we discussed sales alot , sitting on his porch or where ever we were it always seemed to come up as we both shared that love for being around people.
I think back to Woodman having put in the Floyd county times " David was their six million dollar man" along with a picture of him with that big smile.
I was told by one of his co workers David could said a comb to a bald man !! this made me smile as many stories were shared with me
David loved kids and every Christmas eve I cant tell you the kids he played Santa to each year going to their home bringing in presents his friend Tom shared this story that his kids had told him Dad it was David that was Santa David ,so the next year he told Tom I can fix that my Dave being so kind he got my brother Lowell to dress up as Santa. David went in first and Santa came in later , Tom said that his boys said well Dad it cant be David it must be Santa ..just that extra step he took showed how much he cared.
After my parents passed away family Christmas was always at David and Nancy's home with him carrying on the traditions that my dad did every year , it was cases of each fruit , red apples, yellow apples, green apples, grapes ,bananas, oranges, tangerines nuts, cases of almond joys, resses cups, mounds,milky ways etc.
when we got sick he sent Nancy to pick up this truck load of things that he had for each of us when we left ..it was now don't forgot to go to the basement and fill the bags he had along with a gift for each family. I couldn't make it last Christmas due to the snow and how I missed not being with my family at Christmas.
I will never forget August the 8Th 2010 the last time I was at his house as he told me each time I left I love you , come when you can and Kaye you always got a home here Joking I said OK I will be back tomorrow as I did each time he said that ............................
I have been blessed to have had Dave as my Big Brother
I have to add that I have been blessed with six brothers and two sisters as well

As the saying goes you can pick your friends but GOD picks your family ...GOD sure does love me with for the family he has given me !!!THANK YOU LORD for my family

Also I wanted to add this that was from his niece she says it well about her Uncle Dave .

Uncle Dave...When I think of you, I think of big jolly laugh and a giving heart. Since I was little girl, I can always remember how you would tell a story with so much excitement that I would stop what I was doing, listen, and just wait for the laugh. The big deep laugh that would just make everyone else feel happy inside. Every holiday you were always giving and providing to others and never expecting anything for yourself. I remember cheese, sausage, crackers, fruit, candy....there was always something for each family to take home and share because of you and Aunt Nancy's generosity. Ever since I can remember you always made me smile by giving of yourself and sharing your joy in the world. Our lives will never be the same without hearing those laughs. Those laughs are in another place now. I know that you are laughing and jumping and running with no pain right now with Jesus and Kim and Bill. Saying goodbye to you here hurts terribly, but I take peace in knowing that there will come a day when we will all be together again.

THAT'S MY DAVE ...................

Finding your HaPpY place !!!

Finding your happy place can be putting up a reminder of things that make you happy
-pictures, cards or notes. Why create a bulletin board that conjures up feelings of happiness and joy? It is a great visual reminder that instills a sense of hope and happiness. Also, it is a fun craft to do on your own or with your children. Be creative and have fun!

Things you will need a Bullentin board, Photos and memory items that have made or will make you happy by just viewing !Visualize happiness and what makes you happy~~

1. Pick the type of joy you want to feel more of--love, happiness etc. Now think of this feeling that you want to achieve and think of something that makes you feel this way.

2 Get pictures and items that help bring this feeling to life. Pin these items to your bulletin board, creating a theme for your happiness

3 Focus on your happiness board, relax and let the emotions come to you. How does looking at these items on your bulletin board make you feel?

or you may want to do the following I am going to try this as I clean house !

If you can't get away during the day to find your happy place, you can do this while laying in bed, the tub, or while taking a shower

Trying to find your happy place while doing dishes or cleaning the house may not relax you enough to find your happy place. Your mind will be concentrating on your daily chores, rather than happy thoughts.
If it helps you, use photographs of your loved ones. Set them by you, to remind you of every little detail, their face, eyes, hair, even personality.
If your happy place is on a beach, hold a sea shell in your hands while keeping your eyes closed. Picture yourself bending over to pick that shell up off the sand.

Any little prop or memento will help you find, and be in your happy place, as long as you're relaxed and focused on where your happy place is, and that you are in that place with people and things that you love, and thoughts that make you happy.
Often times it helps to imagine your loved one and go for a stroll in the park.

One night some time back my niece told us to find our happy place so I thought I would do some research on the happy place ..
My happy place most of the summer is the outdoors ,porch sitting , weed pulling
and working in my flower garden ..

Hope everyone finds or has thier happy place now !!!

Multitude Mondays week 11 (July 26- Aug 1 2010)

holy experience

A few quotes that I like on blessings , thankfulness and Gratitude

He is a wise man who does not grieve for the things which he has not,
but rejoices for those which he has.
- Epictetus

To educate yourself for the feeling of gratitude means to take
nothing for granted, but to always seek out and value the kind
that will stand behind the action. Nothing that is done for you
is a matter of course. Everything originates in a will for the
good, which is directed at you. Train yourself never to put off
the word or action for the expression of gratitude.
- Albert Schweitzer

There is a calmness to a life lived in gratitude, a quiet joy.
- Ralph H. Blum
