r.i •"(> 7n my UEINS * '.-.;i •,,.< -, V ,' * . w r l . MARIAN INMAN Are you taking time to, en joy your family and friends? Are you usifig your nice things for your enjoyment or have you carefully packed them away for soma "special occasion"? Are you living a skim milk existence? Are you saving the cream for the "special" occasion? -You know it might turn sour. - By a skim milk existence, I do not mean being wasteful and careless, spending or using what you do hot have, But the good things of life should be enjoyed new. The flood book to read/the little extra outing with your family, your nice possessions (however few) displayed for your pleasure, food for the soul along with bread necessary for your body, I remember & story my Mother told us of a couple Who worked* So h^rd'and seemed to live such a drab life. One day they were burned out and when the-neighbors took them in all the woman could say over and over was her regret over the Idss of a Dresden tea set from her Grandmother that she had packed away to use for some special Occasion and now it was " gone. She wished she had set it out to at least look at, its fragile beauty would have rested her after her weary days. ! Too late how, it's gone. - i s ' ' My father died when we children war* very young and ' my Mother worked to help fare for us jb<ut ,1 »H.II .always remember how nice our house looked /uift .how -we. treasured ' but enjoyed the lovely things we had. j% IP1« Rooden Jiowl of-my-Grandmother's filled with red .applet, good <books to road, Grandmother'* silver teapot (Phil's .family has it now), Mother's silver wedding spoons and hayiland chocolate cups, " n even the feel of the fragile handles made one fool special and • . Of course you were ever so carefuj for you prised these lovely • '• possessions and did not need to be cautioned to bo careful. • ' Yet, Mother Helped ot u«t the "er««m" Ibut it .also Helped us 'I team to approbate the "skim .milk" along .with 1 it. She want•?s ed ut'to enjoy the nice things in life but she also taught us I'ito make the most of everything and to*work and feel the dig- ; ( f ; nity iof labor. She always warned us not to let our "wish[' bone" take over for bur "backbone," >. ,,j Looking back i.over,;.my life, there were good times with .jjthe bad.ysad times! v ^^ always glad,we made .,>the mpk.tjbf uttle'j,0ficasi0^s,'eyen;;a; picnic out of doors on a 'I s busy day; : The work; WaSippt 'nearly so hard to return r \tp. The ,,countless times I was called to' the door to look at the 4-H calf I being trained for the fair, the 4-H demonstrations, helping young ,4-Her's in various ways. Busy as I was these things made life . -so much more "cream." Haye you ever thought of the precious heritage you \ give your family when you use the "cream" with them and how when they are with you? I will always treasure .what my ' Mother gav.e me,and it has been more lasting than gold. Remember the song,. ''Catch a Falling Star," the little '. 'tereamV occasions4n our lives are like this song, you,catch the falling star and put it in your pocket and you can pull it out . for a rainy-day.-On the saddest of days your memories that <• -you cherish glow as- a star andI help you overthe hump; ! ,, ; Se> enjoy little /f things ; j«ow. uippn^t pu^ ^i^f;off • for the j time when| Everything is just right or when: you have made - ,thet fortune. That day may not come at all or you may be .. a lone, then and the comfort, of the memories of the/''cream" and "star" times will console you, you will be happy. J know.
