As long as there is food, fun, and fellowship
Everyone will enjoy themselves —
Decorations or lack thereof don’t matter —
Inspiration is a puff of vapor…
A mist flitting around me
Comfort is …
A shoulder to cry on
A listening ear
A phone call or text
Saying, “I’m here.”
“How can I stay young?”
“Play, take chances, enjoy life,
How much is another’s opinion worth to you?
