Women are like apples on trees. The best ones are at the top of the tree.
Most men don't want to reach for the good ones because they are afraid of
falling and getting hurt. Instead, they sometimes take the apples from
the ground that are not as good but easy. The apples at the top think
something is wrong with them, when in reality, they're amazing. They just
have to wait for the right person to come along for the one who is brave
enough to climb all the way to the top of the tree.
Now Men. . .
Men are like a fine wine. They begin as grapes, and it's up to women to
stomp the shit out of them until they turn into something acceptable to
have dinner with.
P.S. this delicious apple was eaten after her dress up...

My Grandmother to this day is my biggest inspiration... she has always given me the special love, lots & lots of laughs, spiritual Faith & strength I needed most growing up.... I miss her sooo much...My grandmother also know as Nanny Sarah was an orphan (she lost her mother at birth)... ... she would say to me... "I never had anyone to call mom...just remember you have your own life but only have ONE mother".... This has always stayed with me... so Thank you Nanny for having my special mom and giving me someone I can call mom ... Remember we only have One Mother in this life... let her know today you love her no matter what... she may not be here tomorrow....I love you Happy Mothers Day!!!! xoxoxo laura
