From the mouth of a babe; Candace Pierce


1.  Try everything twice.
On one woman's tombstone she said she wanted this epitaph:
"Tried everything twice. Loved it both times!"
2.  Keep only cheerful friends.
The grouches pull you down.
(Keep this in mind if you are one of those grouches!)

3. Keep learning:
Learn more about the computer, crafts, gardening, whatever...
Never let the brain get idle.   'An idle mind is the devil's workshop.'
And the devil's name is Alzheimer's!

4. Enjoy the simple things.
5. Laugh often, long and loud.
Laugh until you gasp for breath.
And if you have a friend who makes you laugh,
spend lots and lots of time with HIM/HER.

6.. The tears happen:
Endure, grieve, and move on.
The only person who is with us our entire life, is ourselves.
LIVE while you are alive.

7. Surround yourself with what you love:
Whether it's family, pets, keepsakes, music, plants, hobbies, whatever..
Your home is your refuge.

8. Cherish your health:
If it is good, preserve it.
If it is unstable, improve it.
If it is beyond what you can improve, get help.

9. Don't take guilt trips..
Take a trip to the mall, even to the next county,
to a foreign country, but NOT to where the guilt is.

10. Tell the people you love that you love them, at every opportunity.
I love you, my special friend.

11. Forgive now those who made you cry. You might not get a second chance..
12. Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of

13. Lastly, Remember wine does not make you FAT ....
- It makes you LEAN ...(Against tables, chairs, floors, walls....)
Have a great day!
Happy New Year, 
Candace Laree Pierce

Seaview Senior Living class

Yesterday we had a small but fun class.  The ladies I worked with were really good supportive friends.
They like crafting and each other.  We made New Year Cards using the Cricut, punchs, Stamps, paint, especially printed card stock, good glue and a paper cutter.

Look forward to seeing them again soon.

Happy New Year everyone!!!
