One of our newest residents, Carl Erwin, recently shared “Book #1,” a compilation of his funny one-liners, words of wisdom and tidbits of humor.

His face lit up as he remembered the situations from which he collected the content for his book. “It is important to always be positive and uplifting, and if words can do that, then I feel accomplished,” he said.

As I read the book, I couldn’t help but smile at the entries. I had to admit, I did feel positive and uplifted, and decided to share his words in our newsletter to bring a smile to others.

Please enjoy the following passage, excepted from “Book #1.”


It is so great to have memories, those things we have stored in our heart and mind.

The song says:

“Precious memories, how they linger, how they ever flood my soul.”

Sometimes when we feel low and depressed, memories revive us and once again we have great hope for the future.

We see where we have come from and where we are today. We can count our blessings and remember those who have been a blessing to us.

Most of the time, it is good to remember the good times, but maybe the bad times, too, as they taught us lessons.
