An Abundance of Miracles!
Can you see them?
Can you feel them?
Are you looking?

They are there!

All those items cramming your “Things to Do” List?
They just might be Miracles!

Here’s a few on my List, Today…

Tutti Fruitties

I made a plate of scones today.

I made “Ali Babbas” — dates, pecans and cardamom spice.

And you grew up with PEREZ HILTON.

Because I grew up in the EISENHOWER/KENNEDY Era
And you grew up in the REAGAN/BUSH Era.

Because I grew up learning Table Manners
And you grew up learning Apps.

Because when I grew up, we made it,
And when you grew up, you bought it.

Because when I grew up, Discipline and Respect and Good Sportsmanship were Values taught to us,
And when you grew up, Everyone got a Trophy.
