Three from Mary Mann

marymann has somehow survived, against all odds. She is, therefore, eminently qualified to have three things and to share them with the grandbabies. These three kinda rock out loud.
one All of your life you are talking to yourself. It has been my experience people will talk to themselves in a way they would never speak to anyone else. Practice, always practice, talking to yourself in a supportive, loving manner. It will pay off. I have found, for myself, the way I talk to myself is reflected in the way I speak to others. Very nice. I practice very nice all the time. 

two In my life there are people I have lost track of and I miss them terribly. I regret I didn’t keep in touch or at least make sure I knew how to keep in touch with them. There are people in my life who I don’t exactly have anything in common with, and yet there they are. I am not as unhappy about people I don’t like being in my life as I am about losing the people I did like. Take a minute, now and then, to touch base with those people you really like. It will matter later. 

three If you are going to have pets, they are going to die. They are going to get sick, they are going to have accidents. If you love them, they know. They always know. Pets are not concerned with growing old and knowing their grandchildren or their grandchildren’s grandchildren. They live in the moment. They love in the moment. They know you love them, now. They know you care. They are also animals who have a much shorter life span than we do. I don’t think it ever lessens the love of one life to love another. Love is one of those things that only grows. Love never fades and disappears, it always remains and when given away it grows. There are many, many pets waiting to know you love them, and waiting to love you. I believe when a pet is lost, take some time, honor your grief. That pet is indeed no longer living. The love you had for that pet exists still and when your ready for that love to grow, get another pet. I promise you will find more love than you ever realized. Love is funny that way. Having a pet is also funny that way.

I love raindrops on roses and whatnot, but even more than that I totally dig finding dollars in clothes I haven't worn in ages, live music, social networking and search engine optimization, research, freecycle.com, homemade beer, home grown stuff, writing, talking, laughing, green movements, debate, dialog, dumpster diving, time travel, time-out chairs, psychology, meals that last for hours, pranks, astral projection, meaningful lives, the kindness of strangers, trains, trucks and tractors, cowboys, horses, deer, eagles, random occurrences, modern tragedies, small appliances, good socks and sturdy shoes, shiny objects, painting, playing stringed instruments and singing harmony, pulling perfect feather pillows out of the freezer on hot and humid Kansas summer nights, rodeos and county fairs, brokers, organics and authenticity, my kids, their kids and my huge extended family. I am a hugger and I probably laugh AND talk way too much.
