This Mirror Life

The good you find in others, is in you too.
The faults you find in others, are your faults as well.
After all, to recognize something you must know it.
The possibilities you see in others, are possible for you as well.
The beauty you see around you, is your beauty.
The world around you is a reflection, 
a mirror showing you the person you are.
To change your world, you must change yourself.
To blame and complain will only make matters worse.
Whatever you care about, is your responsibility.
What you see in others, shows you yourself.
See the best in others, and you will be your best.
Give to others, and you give to yourself.
Appreciate beauty, and you will be beautiful.
Admire creativity, and you will be creative.
Love, and you will be loved.
Seek to understand, and you will be understood.
Listen, and your voice will be heard.
Teach, and you will learn.
Show your best face to the mirror, 
and you'll be happy with the face looking back at you.

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend. April showers will be headed this way tomorrow and Sunday, but I'll be busy in the kitchen.  These cooking weekends seem to be coming so quickly now.  I wish there was a way to slow time down, but, since I can't, just might as well make the best of it.  Speaking of time...

....the other night after I went to bed, hubby was watching a show about scientists searching for the Fountain of Youth.  Accordingly, they found an enzyme, the telomerase enzyme, which supposedly can make cells young again.  Unfortunately, it has also been implicated in  encouraging cancer.  So, we'll have to wait and see what the future holds.  Think about it, though.  Would you really want to live forever? 

Happy Weekend wishes.


  1. If you have your health and things are good in your life "Hell yeah!" :0)
    The changes I've seeo in my 75 years want's me to SEE MORE!

    Happy Weekend to you Mary. (((hugs)))Pat

  2. Good question. Well, even if we could, we wouldn't simply because the Earth couldn't survive, unless we were to become sterile. And I'm not sure if I'd want to live forever. I do love this place (otherwise I'd never have signed up for it so many times) but since I can't remember the afterlife, I'm not sure I wouldn't enjoy that more. If quality of life could remain good, then I'd love to see as many years as possible.

  3. I'd never want to live forever. All my enemies would definitely catch up with me eventually : )

  4. In this crazy world, would I want to live forever? Nope.

  5. Great Poem Mary...and to answer your I would not want to live special reason, just want to experience, once again, the Other Side when my time comes.

    Hope your cooking takes on wings this weekend so that time spent in kitchen is very expedient! :)

    It rained here last night overnight...lots of rumbles of thunder and some lightening too. But everything looks so green today. I think we are supposed to get more on Sunday?

    Here's to a peaceful and happy weekend Sister!
