This weekend is a two-fold celebration in the US, make that three

We celebrate Valentine's Day as many others do in the world on the fourteenth and also Presidents' Day which may or may not be unique to the United States of America this Monday? But it moves from year to year.
Anyway that you look at it children get the day off from school Monday as well as banks being closed, and the stock market is also closed and mail is not delivered, whew!
But stores and the net take advantage of the holiday with many sales!
Most have already started those sales in the name of Presidents' Day!
The merchants take advantage of all those parents of those children being home and other people off from work to sell more to.
Here are two sites to refresh your memory of why we do celebrate these holidays other than merchandising:

Oh and the third one, celebration, is that it is Hubby's and my 45th wedding anniversary is also on Sunday! YAY!

Moving on...

Each decade has brought us all so many happenings.
When I look back at each segmented part of our personal lives, in increments, it is so truly amazing to me what all has transpired.
So many changes and then again much has stayed the same, have you found that too?
Have you ever tried taking inventory of life's events; the good the bad and the happy the sad etc, all those emotions that we humans sustain...even the thoughts of all that went how you expected and somethings that turned out so much differently that you had hoped for and all that was and all that never will be?
Some say we should never look back, only forward.
And in so many ways that is true.
Than why are educators and people in government so insistent for us to remember history?
See without our histories we may never learn to change for the better or stay as good as we are, ha!
Just a thought.

A little bit of thinking about the bigger picture of things as me being a biological part of all this minutia in this vast world we all live in, and on that note of you seeing that I am thinking, sort of... allow me to be the very first to wish all of you a very happy healthy safe good night and ask you all to kindly count all your blessings and share all your overages with you know whom and we will too!

And next time please be here or be square, ya hear!
