Life is Sweet

They told you life is long
Be thankful when it's done
Don't ask for more
You should be grateful
But I tell you life is short
Be thankful because before you know
It will be over
Cause life is sweet
And life is also very short
Your life is sweet
Who do you believe?
Who will you listen to
Who will it be?
Eye Candy Friday......The above lyrics to Life is Sweet, by Natalie Merchant are eye candy to me. Very simple, but so true (and it doesn't do any harm to sometimes have a reminder). And the melody is beautiful.
Progress on the Edwardian Lace Shawl is coming soon (but don't expect miles of it).


  1. before she died (way too soon) my mom said live every day to its fullest as if its the last, cause you never know!
    an awful lot depends on health!
    cheers to life!

  2. Yes, Cheers to Life!

    Your Mum was a wise woman - I'm sorry she had to leave so soon.

  3. Hi Alice,

    What great lyrics. It is true that we need to appreciate all we have, because we're not promised tomorrow. We have to just go for it!

    Thanks so much for your comments on my blog. Charlie did lose a little weight, but the real test will be his bloodwork results on Monday.

    Can't wait to see your shawl!
