Besides inspiration, I use my favorites on Flickr to bring a smile to my face when I really need one, when I need some happiness.

I went to the viewing tonight of a woman who was my first Sunday school teacher. I can remember putting my offering into a little plastic white church (a quarter at the time), saying a prayer, then having my lesson. Miss Reva (she was married, but was always called with the 'Miss' in front of her name) was an inspiration for the way to live. She was nice to everyone and did not have an unkind word to say about anyone. Heaven has indeed gained another angel. I know you're up there in Heaven Miss Reva, reunited with Lydia, another member of my church, who died this year.
