It's easy to see why more people visit the east coast during the summer months. Maine truly is a vacation playland. One day we were visiting our local pier and seeing the ships in the harbor with the sunlight reflecting off the boats. My five-year-old grandson said, "Look YaYa, silver boxes dancing on the water!" What a visual moment to record...
For a 'Mother's Day' gift, our daughter sent 2 live lobsters from Rockland, Maine. I'll be sure and post photos of those delicious bugs on my other blog next Monday. By the way, how many blogs do you have and where can I find you?

The Friday 56
Remember saying, "'ll never do that! I''ll never be like my mother?" Darlene told me that she grew up with a "negative-mouthed mother," and she promised herself that she would never talk to her children as her mother had talked to her. Darlene has worked at being positive with her two boys, but she told me that over the last year or so she has slowly begun to slip in her communication with her oldest who is five and a half. "I was slowly getting negative and saying ugly things just like my mother did. Your message on silver boxes reminded me of how I felt as a child. I am going to put silver boxes in each room to remind me. Thank you!"-- Florence Littauer
I liked the book. It's an easy read and I think communication is so important. Beautiful writings on affirmation and encouragement. Have you read this one?
