"Some is and some ain't!"
Some thoughts for today:
One of our best friends (now 93 years young) played a part of a pencil sales person in a skit at a seniors meeting.
She was asked, “Are the pencils New?”
“Some is, Some ain’t!” Was the answer to most of the questions in the skit.
That little line by a sweet old lady had been bouncing around in my head considering ‘good days’: My brain is saying, “Some is, Some ain’t!”
I have contracted to have the slab for the RV poured and finished. To tell the truth I get ‘antsy’ working with someone I do not know. Not only that, but the weather has turned very ‘bad’, we have had torrential rains, and now tornado warnings. ALL delaying the contractor. I KNOW about these things, faced them many times myself, I understand…….. BUT…… I don’t even know this guy…….
BUT there was a GOOD DAY, son Jack arrived from his 4 month trip around the country. (Yep I guess it is in the blood).
With this trip he has now traveled the west coast from N to S and S to N. He cannot get used to seeing all the growing fields in California. And YES they are impressive. Thousands and thousands of acres of nut trees, citrus trees, vegies of all kinds, WITH grapes and a variety of fruits. He cannot get away from the craziness in the news from the coastal cities here and the beauty and peace in the state away from the coast.
So it was a GOOD DAY to have him back and hear of his adventures and his scattered family.
So about those days, any bad? “Some is, Some ain’t!”
PS: From the papers of kids in a Christian School:
16. WHEN THE THREE WISE GUYS FROM THE EAST SIDE ARRIVED THEY FOUND JESUS IN THE MANAGER.
I hope that manager let Jesus shine through in every thought and action.
Sorry about the delay on the slab but know it will get done eventually.
I am happy your son's trip went well and that he is home again-home again-jiggity jog.
As far as days go- some IS good and Some AIN't good.
It's good to be with family. Enjoy your time with your son. Praying for you all.
The traveling bug grows strong in Jack. He can't help it. How great that he saw so much of America, physical and political differences.
I've been thinking of JJ and wondering if he'd made his way 'home'!
Funny what you said about not knowing those concrete guys -- that's exactly what Tom said the other day when I read him what you'd written. (Takes one to know one!)
That line from your 93 y/o friend is so precious. Methinks it deserves put on a sampler and hung.
Sounds like wanderlust does run in your family, Jack! It is great though to go out and explore all the wonderful places to see! Glad Jack, Jr was able to do so and had an adventure seeing everything he did! I like that saying. Life is like that; some is good and some is ain't for sure!
For me, every day is a good day if I wake up and can get out of bed. Life is short and I don't have time for bad days anymore, so I try to make the most of every day. I try ro keep positive to isn't in my vocabulary any more. Every day may not be a good one, but we can find something good in every day. All we have to do is look for it! Hope your weather clears and the job gets done. Nice you have Jack Jr. safely home from his travels
