A Tip From Alice~

Darlings,

It’s time for another tip from Alice’s Cookbook, Us Two~A Collection of Personal Recipes Adapted For Two Persons, Jennie B. Williams-1909. This particular prized piece of advice comes from the back of a scrap paper tucked into the cookbook for obvious safe keeping.

To those of you who have gilt frames and are wondering how to shine them, Alice suggests rubbing the frame with the white of an egg.  LOL!  Who knew?

Love,

Alice and Grace

If one experience or life change results from you writing your blog, what would you like it to be?

“Those who unlock your compassion are those to whom you’ve been assigned.” 
― Mike Murdock~Goodreads, Quotes About Compassion

The one life change that I hope results from writing a blog, is heightened compassion for another being. Often we assume that we know the whys of actions of another or we assume we know better.  We judge when we should remain open to listen and grow in our capacity to understand another’s actions. Better understanding of and a heightened compassion for the frailty and resilience of the human spirit. This aspect fascinates me.  What happens in a lifetime when certain choices are made, the fall out, the sorrow, the anger, the remorse, the love that always remains, simmering just beneath the surface of a soul. The shaping of a life.  Why are some individuals able to develop deeper compassion while others display callousness? To develop a bigger heart of forgiveness and compassion.  It is my hope that readers discover the bittersweet memories, the forgotten treasures, and the beauty behind the ordinary, often flawed characters that I write about in aliceandmolly~ Writings from Life.  For we are human and we are all a part of a bigger condition~ how to learn to embrace one another in the spirit of kindness and empathy.  That is the one life change, that I hope results from writing a blog.

A “Wonderful World”

I see so much beauty around me! Sunshine, the silence of snowflakes, heartfelt hugs, smiles, doors held to let a stranger pass through.  Babies, a whole world of endless possibilities ahead of them, courage when it counts, the wisdom of elders, simple, random acts of kindness.  I remind myself that it’s a “wonderful world.” Join in.
