A Bowl of Cherries Inspiration

Life is just a bowl of Cherries...

A song written in 1931 during the Great Depression.

I thought I could borrow a bit of wisdom from then and inspire myself with the words.

For a note card, laptop design or an iPad creation.

I designed this iPhone case to remind me not to take life so seriously.

The iPhone case has been added to my shop,  A Word of Inspiration.

Hmm, how about a gift for you while I'm designing.

How about some stationery for you to download.  Here is the link for you to download page one of your stationery.

A nice reminder to a friend or family, or maybe a letter to Mom for Mother's Day.  Here is the link for you to download page two of your stationery.

My mom lived during the Great Depression, and she is still alive and well, but much more frugal than I have been in my lifetime.  The wisdom that she learned then, is the wisdom I try to apply to my life today."Life is just a bowl of cherries...

Don't take it serious, 
Life's too mysterious.
You work, You save,
you worry so
But you can't take your dough
When you go, go, go."

Mom talks about how nice people were to one another during that difficult chapter.  We are in a different kind of chapter, but difficult in it's own way.  Let's borrow the wisdom from that era, and sing:

"So keep repeating "it's the berries."
The strongest oak must fall
The sweet things in life
To you were just loaned
So how can you lose
What you've never owned

Life is just a bowl of cherries
So live and laugh, aha!
Laugh and love
Live and laugh,
Laugh and love,
Live and laugh at it all!"

I hope you enjoyed the music.  This is the original soundtrack, Jack Hylton 1931.  The music by Ray Henderson and lyrics by Buddy G. DeSylva and Lew Brown was published in 1931.

Today is Pink Saturday and Bev from How Sweet The Sound is hosting.  My post isn't too pink today, but I hope that Pink Saturday leaves you feeling Life is Just a Bowl of Cherries.
