"Time is so precious-do not waste it.".

." The Love of God within my heart, will teach me how to do my part."

. Northern Lights Over Teepees .

A good friend of mine Eric who lives in Australia sent me some pictures that I wanted to share with you. The pictures show the northern lights in Yellow Knife, Canada,

These pictures are spectacular and the teepees look very pretty in the dark. But maybe not cozy… check out that outdoor thermometer.

I know that it is time for me to go, I feel like that you have read enough of this. But I do wan't to come back tomorrow. Don't forget "Be kind & Gentle" to everyone that you are with today, and a little smiling & laughing might help someone. Our day would be well spent if it was lived for others, rather than our self. Dad.

We are very sad today, we have a friend in the hospital that we have known and Loved for many years. Vivian has been a true friend to us. Mary, I and many others are thinking of her this morning. Dad.

Good Afternoon DAD...

It is a beautiful day here and shortly we will drive to the beach to read and admire another of God's handiwork. You have some amazing photographer friends and I so enjoy the sights that they capture and share with all of us. I've never seen anything as specatular as Eric's photos of Northern Lights over Teepees.

On Friday, I will pick up some Florida Grown Cherry Tomatoes at the Farmers' Market for sauteeing. Yesterday we went to a Citrus Grove for some freshly picked oranges. The little shop there had a large variety of stuffed birds that sang their own song when you tapped the bottom. They are put out by the Audubon Society. I had to handle several and listen to their songs and of course I thought of you and your link to Listen to Bird Songs.

I do hope Vivian will be feeling better and able to return home soon. And, we all hope your visit to the doctor yesterday went well and you are doing just fine! We need our coffee and our smiles everyday.

Off to the beach now. ..Sara's Mom

Dear Dad and Ms. Mary:

Hope you are comfortable and warm close to the coffee pot, out of the rain! The cherry tomato recipe sounds delicious. I checked in on the eagles and I think they're in there, but they must be resting right now. Those are some beautiful pictures from Yellowknife -- pretty cold up there!

Love to you both, and hope you feel better soon, Ms. Mary...Jamaka and fams

So sorry to hear about your friend Vivian. I hope she is able to come home from the hospital soon.

What wonderful photos of the northern lights. I saw northern lights once when I was in Leningrad (now St. Petersburg), Russia. They were amazing, but I didn't have my camera with me! I had no idea what they were at the time.
