A whole new week

Many people will walk in and out of your life, but only true friends leave footprints in your heart. To handle yourself, use your head; to handle others, use your heart. Anger is only one letter short of danger. If someone betrays you once, it is his fault; if he betrays you twice, it is your fault. Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people.
He who loses money, loses much; he who loses a friend, loses much more; he who loses faith, loses all. Beautiful young people are accidents of nature, but beautiful old people are works of art. Learn from the mistakes of others. You can't life long enough to make them all yourself. Friends, you and me ... you brought another friend ... and then there were three ... we started our group ... our circle of friends ... and like that circle ... there is no beginning or end ... yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift. That is why they call it a present.
Eleanor Roosevelt

Happy hugs for a wonderful new week !

  14. Lieve Saskia,

    Na het publiceren van zó'n boodschap màg jij wel twéé plakjes nougat voor maandag hoor! Koop je deze of is 't zelfgemaakt? Denk wel gekocht omdat ze dit in kikkerland góed kennen. Hier is het zeldzaam, enkel in Atlanta vind ik ze of andere grote steden. Dat was mijn lievelings item van de kermis zo'n 'wiebertjes ruit' nougat; een voor mijn moeder en één voor mij. En dan lekker met je tanden trekken... ik proef 'm nog!



  15. Yummm...I like fresh strawberries dipped in sour cream and then dredged in brown sugar. So delicious! Have a wonderful magical week.

  16. That Mrs. Roosevelt sure was a wise woman. :)
    I had strawberries, blueberries, and a blood orange for lunch today. Fresh fruit is such a happy thing. :) :)
    Have a happy week. :)

  17. Nougat,mmmmmmmmm,ziet er heerlijk uit,hoor,heb je die zelfgemaakt?
    Fijne week
