My granddaughter and I went shopping today for a few groceries and she saw the bananas and said, I could like those. I told her okay I would get her some. She said, "I like candy too."
I told her why not when we got home put some chocolate peanut butter on the banana, that would be better than candy. She said, "Oh nana you are so silly." I told her no really, I mean it, it is delicious. She said, "Well when we get home we should try it." When we got home she wanted her chocolate banana and her brother wanted one also. They loved them.
The children are such a joy. You never know what is going to come out of their mouth. My granddaughter is very picky and any time I can get her to eat anything healthy I feel like I have won a battle. She loves my Ensure And Naked Green drink. I hope its alright to let her have a little. She's four.

I read this somewhere. It seems to fit.
If you have made mistakes there is always another chance for you.
You may have a fresh start any moment you choose, for this thing we call
'failure' is not the falling down, but the staying down.
I'm up and running. No stopping me now.
We have been in the garden today. It really did not do as good as we like but I do have lots of squash, zucchini, sugar baby watermelons and cantaloupe. I think we will plow this garden under soon and plant a fall garden. Can you believe it, fall garden!! Its only five months left in this year. Its hard to believe how fast the time passes.

"If all the discoveries which men need to make, the most important at the present moment, is that of the self-forming power treasured up in themselves!" William Elllery Channing (1780-1842) Have you found your self-forming power? I see a glimmer. I feel it building in me, a little step at a time. I have taken my life back.
I would be interested to hear what comes to mind when you hear that term "self-forming power." I love words, they are so powerful.

"In order to swim one takes off all one's clothes-in order to aspire to the truth one must undress in a far more inward sense, divest oneself of all one's inward clothes, of thoughts, conceptions, selfishness etc. before one is sufficiently naked." Soren Kierkegaard, journal, 1854
I am learning to get naked and learn who I am. I want to get every bit of enjoyment out of my life. I want to strip all the old negative me away and find the joy and laughter. Come on Sparkies and join me on this adventure.
