It’s Up To You!

It Just Takes One

One song can spark a moment,
One flower can wake the dream.
One tree can start a forest,
One bird can herald spring.
One smile begins a friendship,
One handclasp lifts a soul.
One star can guide a ship at sea,
One word can frame the goal.
One vote can change a nation,
One sunbeam lights a room.
One candle wipes out darkness,
One laugh will conquer gloom.
One step must start each journey,
One word must start each prayer.
One hope will raise our spirits,
One touch can show you care.
One voice can speak with wisdom,
One heart can know what's true.
One life can make the difference,
You see, it's up to you.

Welcome to July 2010
This means the year is half gone, and my it has gone by fast! Before you know it we’ll be seeing “back to school” sales, Labor Day sales, Thanksgiving reminders, and Christmas decorations. Anyhow… don’t fret, just enjoy the summer and the sunshine. July 4 is just days away. Stay safe and don’t celebrate the 4th with a fifth.


Tennessee Granddaddy Says:
Sometimes it hard to get started,
but we must take the first step.
If we lack the courage to start,
we are already finished.

Quote of the Day
Let us be of good cheer,
remembering that the misfortunes hardest to bear
are those which will never happen. 
~James Russel Lowell

Joke of the Day

There was a woman who wanted to repaint her house, so she called the contractor and set an appointment to meet with him. When the contractor comes to her house they do a walk-through and he asks her what colors she would like. When they come to the living room, she tolls him that she would like a nice and warm cream color. The contractor writes something down on his pad then walks to the window and yells "Greenside up."

The lady gets a little confused, and they continue to the dining room where she tells him, "I would like a nice warm white in here, nothing stark." The contractor writes something down on his pad again , then walks to the window and again yells, "Greenside up!"

The lady is really confused now but still does not say anything. They continue to her bedroom and she says, "I would like a nice, cool, relaxing blue in here." The contractor writes something on his pad and again walks to the window and yells, "Greenside up."

The woman is now totally perplexed and says to the contractor, "Three times I have told you the color that I want, and you write something on your pad, then you walk to the window and yell greenside up. What is going on?"

The contractor replies, "Well, if you look across the street, I have four blondes laying sod in your neighbors yard."
