When i was a little girl, my mother on her way home from work, would stop by the local "Bake Shop", and buy me some pastries. When i came to America in 1974, it did not take long for me to discover, i think, "The Best Doughnut" i have ever eaten.
The train ride was 35cents, and "The Doughnut" was 15cents. Every morning on my way to school, i saw a deliveryman delivering my fav doughnuts, in the old fashion manner. On a tray they came, open to the air, i think, in a case they went. Here is my 15cents.
Do you remember this doughnut? Large, extremely soft, with a hole, and a thin white glaze, of frosting. Yum, yum. Years went by, i did not buy any, who knows what happened. Well, well, what do i bump into looking different? That old fashioned doughnut, that cost 15cents, delivered every morning, taste so good. "NOW ENCASED IN PLASTIC" times change. I believe it is a dollar now.
There is always hope for tomorrow
to brighten the clouds for today
There is always a corner for turning
no matter how weary the way
So just look ahead for tomorrow
and trust that you'll find awaiting there
The sunlight that seemed to be hidden
by yesterday's cloud of despair. HSR
WHILE i am sure that you love me still
And i know in my heart
that you always will,
Somehow i feel that i cannot reach you,
And though i get down
on my knees and beseech you,
i cannot bring you closer to me,
And i feel adrift on life's ragging sea
But though i cannot feel your hand
To lead me on to the Promised Land,
I still believe with all my being
Your hand is there beyond my seeing. HSR
"When i first started hanging around Manhattan, New York, i came upon two stores that i liked. One was Alexanders department store, good for designer bras at a low price, and the other was Bloomingdales. Both stores had something for me.
I noticed quite a bit about both stores, especially Bloomingdales. This store was packed with beautiful merchandize, and people. It needed to change, and change came. I left and returned 10 plus years later. I was impressed. Spacious, service, and a "Handsome" young man in a suit, tie, and name tag, greeting the customers.
If he was there 10 years before, i did not notice. Folks, to make a long story short, if high standards had a smell, it would smell like Roses. Let me not forget, the neatest clearance rack, of long nightgowns. "I KNOW BLOOMINDALES WAS BLESSED"

Faith is a force that is greater
Than knowledge or power or skill,
And the darkest defeat turns to triumph
if you trust in GOD'S wisdom and will
For faith is a mover of mountains
there is nothing man cannot achieve.
If he has the courage to try it
and then has the faith to believe. HSR
GOD, be my resting place and my protection
In hours of trouble, defeat, and dejection;
May i never give way to self-pity and sorrow;
May i always be sure of a better tomorrow. HSR
I know it was GOD who sent you to me
I prayed every night that he would,
You touch my Heart, with all the things
that you do.
I hope you never go, can't believe my luck
Although i prayed for a Soul to Love me.
Sweet Love, Sweet Love, i know this is Sweet Love
Sent from GOD above. Leahdeleah
Across the years, we've met in dreams
And shared each other's hopes and schemes.
We've known a friendship rich and rare
And beautiful beyond compare
But you reached out your arms for more
To catch what you were yearning for,
But little did you think or guess
That one can't capture happiness
Because it's unrestrained and free,
Unfettered by reality. HSR
