Welcome to my first post! It's all for the best!

Welcome to my very first blog post! Thanks to my cousin and his wife, I am now a blogger. After hearing of blogs for many years and never really understanding what they were, I am now savvy. LOL!

I plan to post things in my blog about family, kids, babysitting, work, FLYing, crafting, friends, being a mom, being a woman and entertainment. I hope to provide tips and tricks along the way that may help you in some way.

Let me explain my title, "It's all for the best." It comes from an old musical number (I believe from Godspell) that goes:
When you feel sad,
Or under a curse.
Your life is bad,
Your prospects are worse.

Your wife is sighing, crying,
And your olive tree is dying.
Temples are graying, teeth are decaying
And creditors weighing your purse...

Your mood and your robe
Are both a deep blue.
You'd bet that Job
Had nothing on you.
Don't forget that when you get
To Heaven you'll be blessed.
Yes! It's all for the best!

Some men are born to live at ease
Doin' what they please
Richer than the bees are in honey.
Never growing old, never feeling cold
Pulling pots of gold from thin air.

The best in every town,
Best at shaking down,
Best at making mountains of money.
They can't take it with them,
But what do they care?

They get the center of the meat, cushions on the seat,
Houses on the street where it's sunny.
Summers at the sea, winters warm adn free,
All of this and we get the rest.

But who is the land for?
The sun and the sand for?
You guessed! It's all for the best!

I look at things very similarly. I try to see both sides of every story before making a decision and I don't think there is much black and white in the world. It's all a gray area we have to do the best we can with.

I also love this song because the kids give great reactions when I break into it while making lunch and do my lame tap-dancing routine. They either think I'm nuts or start dancing along! LOL!

Next post, I will introduce you to FLYing!
