LIFE* for my friends.......past and present.
Life is a blend of the good and the bad,
A bit of the glad and a bit of the sad’
A pinch of contentment, a time of unrest,
A dash of the worst and a lot of the best’
A little of failure, a little of luck,
A bit of disaster and plenty of pluck’:
And who would live long must be willing to know
Winter anad summer and sunshine and snow.
Life is a mixture of laughter and tears,
Hope and despair are a part of the years:
Someone is born and then somebody dies,
Someone is foolish and someone is wise”
Someone is false to us, someone is true,
Now it is play and then tasks we must do:
Who grows to manhood must learn how to take
Joy with its laughter and care with its ache.
Life is a blend of the good and the ill,
And we must bear what shall come by His will:
There must come tears to the brightest eyes,
Care visits the rich and the strong and the wise:
No one escapes when the rain pelts down,
Today you may smile but tomorrow may frown;
So stand to your portion of sorrow and strife,
And know that it’s all in the battle called LIFE!

I don't care if you lick windows,
take the special bus
or occasionally pee on yourself..
You hang in there sunshine, you're special!!!!!!!!
Every sixty seconds you spend angry, upset or mad, is a full minute of happiness you'll never get back.
Today's Message of the Day is:
Life is short, Break the rules, Forgive quickly, Kiss slowly, Love truly, Laugh uncontrollably, And never regret anything that made you smile..
LUV YA GIRLS AND BOYS! My SPARKFRIENDS ARE ALL SPECIAL! XXOO MARY ANN

I just couldn't wait to get home to tell you all that we won today 11-8. Now tomorrow we play for the STATE CHAMPIONSHIP!!!! Haley was sick, but made it through 6 innings. I could give you a play by play, but I'll just tell she RAWWWWKED IT! She even hit two doubles and a single. The runs scored were on field errors. I want to thank all my very favorite sparklers for sending me good wishes, luck, and prayers for them to do a good job....I'm so proud of them! Whether they win or lose tomorrow, they've come farther than any other team from that school has in a looooooong time, if ever. Last year they took 3rd with the best team they'd had in a few. We had so much fun watching and cheering for them. The other team brought four buses of kids and we didn't bring any.....so you know who the big mouth CHEERLEADER was.....GUILTY AS CHARGED! My daughter and I .......friends and mothers. We did actual cheers...Like crazy ones from our own teams way back when! It was so much fun and the kids loved it. They were all intimidated at first by the buses unloading out there and all their fans, but we showed em! LOL.
Haley catches a third out pop-up. Go, HALEY, GO HALEY!!
The TEAM WON A SPECTACULAR HARD-FOUGHT GAME!
Stay tunes....WIN or LOSE.....THEY ARE ALL WINNERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

As I ponder my friendships past and present, I searched for this poem and found it...My friend passed away this week at age 58 and we just buried him today. I hope you will enjoy this and reflect on the friendships you've formed through the years. LOVE & APPRECIATE THEM...TELL THEM HOW MUCH THEY MEAN TO YOU....I have been so sappy these past few days. I won't apologize for taking my relationships so very seriously and loving deeply....Have a lovely night, my Sparkfriends. XO Mary Ann
PS I will be sooooooo ready to celebrate life dancing this weekend! It makes me feel full of joy and hope. I hope all my friends will learn to dance as though no one is watching, as it really doesn't matter if you are Fred or Ginger......As long as you can enjoy the dance. XXXXXOOOOO
I'd like to be the sort of friend that
you have been to me;
I'd like to be the help that
you've been always glad to be;
I'd like to mean as much to you
each minute of the day
As you have meant, old friend of mine,
to me along the way.
I'd like to do the big things and
the splendid things for you,
To brush the gray from out your skies
and leave them only blue;
I'd like to say the kindly things that
I so oft have heard,
And feel that I could rouse your soul
the way that mine you've stirred.
I'd like to give you back the joy
that you have given me,
Yet that were wishing you a need
I hope will never be;
I'd like to make you feel as rich as I,
who travel on
Undaunted in the darkest hours with you to
I'm wishing at this time that I
could but repay
A portion of the gladness that
you've strewn along my way;
And could I have one wish this year,
this only would it be:
I'd like to be the sort of friend
that you have been to me.
