It Was All So Simple Then

If we had a chance to do it all again
Would we ~~~
Could we ~~~

Grab that second cup of coffee
Come on in...
Let us revisit 1896

Light the corners of my mind
Misty watercolor memories
Of the way we were

Scattered pictures
Of the smiles we left behind
Smiles we gave to one another
For the way we were

Can it be that it was all so simple then
Or has time rewritten every line

If we had the chance to do it all again
Tell me - would we, could we?

May be beautiful and yet

What's too painful to remember
We simply choose to forget

So it's the laughter
We will remember
Whenever we remember
The way we were

So it's the laughter
We will remember

Whenever we remember
The way we were
Thank you so very much for visiting with me today.
I do hope you enjoyed our time spent in 1896

Life ~~ Sometimes it is quite simple
At times It can be extremely complicated
the  precious history lesson is
making the memories ~~~
and remembering "the laughter"

Lyrics by Barbra Streisand...Thank you Barbra

    First, your cabin photos are WONDERFUL! You look perfectly at home in that setting. :) So beautiful!

    Second, thank you so much for your sweet visit to my blog...I wish you COULD sit in that pink chair all day. What fun we'd have!

    I really appreciate your kind comments...have you seen the fall Mercantile? I was privileged to write a piece about a really fantastic local shopkeeper. I think it's one of my favorite articles to date. It was such fun to hear her story!

    Blessings to you, Friend
