Nothing can bring you peace but yourself.

When we believe that God is Father, we also believe that such a father’s hand will never cause his child a needless tear. We may not understand life any better, but we will not resent life any longer.

Honey is the only food that does not spoil. Honey found in the tombs of Egyptian pharaohs has been tasted and found edible.

My daddy, Bryan Hall used to care for bees and sold honey to neighbors and friends. He never did get stung by the bees as he was not afraid of them. I remember mama always kept a beautiful green glass jar full of honey on our eating table at all the time. I never thought of this during the summer months, but there was never ants on the table where the glass jar was placed. Daddy often told me I should like the bees because if it was not for the honey he sold, he could not have bought my milk when I was a baby (1933). I still like the honey bees until they should sting me. Nothing is better than honey, butter and hot biscuits. I sure have some great memories of my mother (Ethel) and dad.

We’re wishing all mothers and grandmothers a very happy Mother’s Day on Sunday.
