    I heard my niece crying

    so I went down stairs to see what happened. My mother just kept telling her to stop crying and she was okay; which was true, she was okay, but it seemed to make her cry more when instructed not to. She had just bumped her head whilst playing. I stood there and watched her...

    Foggy Windshield Hate foggy windshields?

    Yes I do. Not as a favour.

    Not to expect something as in right now. But hopefully as a light, some small thing that will aid a process down the line. If not for you, then someone else. To create some light in darker places.

    Measuring Cups Before you pour sticky

    substances into a measuring cup, fill with hot water. Dump out the hot water, but don't dry cup. Next, add your ingredient, such as peanut butter, and watch how easily it comes right out. (Or spray the measuring cup or spoon with Pam before using)

    Be Helpful To Others

    ♥~"One of the most meaningful things we can do in our lives is to be helpful to others. The legacy we leave behind when we are gone, won't be of our dashing good looks, what job we did great in, or how much money we made. We will be remembered for the things we did to people...
