What the Beck???

“The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience.”
                                          Eleanor Roosevelt

I am really going to embrace this quote and remember to enjoy each day and each new challenge that is out there for me.

       I was reading Real Simple Magazine in September of this year when I saw my birth year on the Simple List.  Do you know what childrens' toy was invented in 1956??  Play-Doh!! 
       Now, I was never a big Play-Doh fan, since to me it was a messy substance. I thought it was interesting that it was originally used to clean wallpaper.  What?????
       Apparently, the maker listened to a preschool teacher, who was a relative, who suggested he add color, take out the soap, add fragrance, and make it a kids' toy. The brilliance of a teacher should never be underestimated. Of course, I am a bit bias, ya think??

       I was cleaning off my desk yesterday, and I found a clipping from May of 2016 that said that Alan Young had died. For some reason, that made me really sad. Do you remember who he was??? Hint:  he was the original horse whisperer. Okay, that is a little out there – he played Wilbur on Mister Ed.
I always thought that it was a dumb show, but of course we watched it. We never for a minute believed a horse could talk, but that was T.V. in the 1960s.

       I’m ending today with a Bible quote:

“Let us not grow weary of doing good, because in due time we will harvest.”

Sometimes life can get us down, and we tire of doing something for everyone else, but by doing so, we truly enrich our own lives. I believe that God blesses those who help others.
