Some Sound Advice, Some Funny Sayings, and Singing With the Beatles

10 Feb

“May I share with you a formula that in my judgment will help you and help me to journey well through mortality… First, fill your mind with truth; second, fill your life with service; and third, fill your heart with love.”
― Thomas S. Monson
Excellent advice and a life to strive for. As in most things, easier said than done, but worthy of every effort. I do believe that truth is very important, not only the words you tell others, but the words you tell yourself. I need to work on that. Sometimes that is the hardiest truth. Service is equally as important. Service and helping people is another gift that nourishes your soul. Then, filling your heart with love, family and friendship completes the formula.

Being thankful is the key.

This is funny, but true. If you survived a catholic education! you can survive anything. Amen. Now sit down and fold your hands.

OK, this one was just cerebral and amusing,
Now, for the Beatles? CBS is celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Beatles appearing on the Ed Sullivan Show. I’m singing along…as I tend to do. I remember it like it was “YESTERDAY.” Get it? “Yesterday, life was such an easy game to play.”

    I love the nuns one. They are scary. And the “I don’t give a rat’s …” Took me a few seconds, but I got the smile in the end. 🙂 I always like my visits with you. Cheers, Brenda

      Thank you, my friend. I adore your poetry and admire your way with words, expressing so much in a few sentences is a real gift.

      Anyone who survived catholic school, especially in “the old days,” like me , in the 50’s and 60’s, then they know what we’re talking about. But, you know, I wouldn’t change it for the world. It helped make me the person I am today. Thanks!

        I have to agree there. They might have been rough, but we probably needed it. (for some reason)
