~who has the front row seats in your life?~


not everyone can be in your front row seats
save those for the one's that
lift and encourage
 those that listen and reach out a hand
and
 help you rally from defeat
someone who is glad you dropped by
who will share hugs, hopes and dreams with you........

remember the font row seats are for those 
that are special and deserving 
choose those people wisely

not everyone is worthy of a front row seat
{some are better left in the balcony}

 i have been painting my old chairs bright colours...
do you like my fushia one?
it's reserved  just for you in the very front row

This is so interesting-
there is a book titled Balcony People that discusses people that are good for us and people that are not.

Enjoyed visiting,

Definitely my family gets front row seats in my life... you know what? This post made me think of my mother who passed away, she was the one who always rallied and cheered for me. Thanks for reminding me.

'not everyone is worthy of a front row seat
{some are better left in the balcony}'...Ha! Some people are better left outside :)

Have a wonderful week ahead ♥

Marilyn said...

I would love to sit in the front row seat. Please can I have the fuchsia one? Thanks so much. And can we sit by the floral wall paper too?

So true!

My Blessed Serendipity Life said...

I love the color! I always prefer to sit near the front. I never did get people that sit in the back. You don't have a very good view from there.

hugs for a new week,
Danielle

Amanda said...

Wise wise words indeed Koralee. And such a great analogy. It certainly makes me grateful for those who share my front row. Where would I be without them?
And I do love your fuchsia chair. I'm thinking of giving one of my old chairs stripey socks!

I needed these thoughts! I'm trying to figure out some relationship issues and I love this analogy!

Happy Monday and thanks for sharing.

Laura Marcella said...

Your chair looks so cheerful and welcoming! You'll have to share a picture with us when all your chairs are done. I've always liked the look of all different-shaped chairs and colors around a table.

Gabriela Delworth said...

Hello,

Love the colour! And the quote is just true...

Susan said...

Koralee~ I love your fuchsia chair! I've been doing a lot of painting myself, but everything is white! I must think of adding some bright pops of color when everything is in place.
Thanks for the front row seat! It's so fun to see you creating such a happy home!
Blessings!

Mary said...

The color is certainly perfect against that wallpaper. It is bright and welcoming. This is my first visit to your blog, but I will be back. You've created a lovely spot for your readers to visit and I enjoyed the time I spent here. I hope you have a great day. Blessings...Mary

Good morning darling friend,

How true. We must choose wisely and that goes for young people and older ones. I see that for your special guests, you have them sit in style....I LOVE YOUR COLOR CHOICE HERE!!! I know of no one else that can make colors blend so beautifully with the ONE COLOR that I have my heart set on: BLUE. I would never consider any hues in the red family, but you make it work for me. Ahhh...another day dearest, towards school. But all is well.

LOVE TO YOU! Anita

Rizzi said...

GOOD MORNING KORALEE, I WOULD BE PROUD TO SIT IN YOUR LOVELY FUSHIA CHAIR MY FRIEND. I LOVE YOUR IDEA WITH THE BRIGHT COLORS FOR YOUR CHAIRS. HOPE YOUR WEATHER IS NICER THAN OURS, THUNDERSTORMS ALL WEEK. IT IS SO DARK OUT THIS MORNING, A DAY TO STAY IN BED. :)
HAVE A GOOD WEEK, WITH LOTS OF SUNSHINE. RIZZI

Gwendolyn said...

I love your sweet little chair. I love your words of wisdom too. I may need to rearrange the seating list of my life.
Blessings~

à la parisienne said...

I love your chair and the wallpaper!
Yes, we often times need to make sure that the right people in our lives get the appropriate amount of our time. For me, at times, it's about moving things and duties to the backrow or out of the auditorium in order to better serve others.

Bonne semaine,
Mandy

Jooles said...

What a wonderfully nice way of putting it, Koralee. I can think of a few who should maybe be in the balcony !!!! I love that analogy.
Your fuschia chairs look lovely and SO Koralee.
Thanks so much for your comment on my not very sophisticated post !!!! I think that I might have frightened a few people away !!
Have a fuschia pink week. XXXX

Dear Bella,

Your newly painted chair looks great against the floral wallpaper!!

Oh, I find it really difficult to decide who will get the front row seats. There are so many sweet people in my life!

Wish you a lovely day!

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

Oh Koralee, BLUEBERRY PICKING through country roads? HOW MORE PERFECT CAN YOU GET for SUMMER FUN????? Oh, dearest, GOD IS GOOD! Just the simple pleasures of each day, each moment are a gift that can be opened over and over again. BLUEBERRIES RULE!!!!

Eat 'em up 'til your mouth is completely blue. I DO! And my husband laughs at my blue lips.

teeeheee!

LOVE TO YOU,Anita

cathleen said...

Hi Koralee. It's been awhile. I see you still have the loveliest blog around! I'm a balcony kind of person myself!

Sue (Someone's Mom) said...

The one thing that I have learned with age is to get rid of the toxic people in your life. We all know someone who makes us feel worse instead of better, who drains us...I keep them at a distance these days.

Mimi and Tilly said...

What a beautiful post! I totally agree. I am very fortunate that the people in my front row seats now are my biggest cheer leaders. And I love them very much. I love your bright red chair. I have two chairs similar to this sitting in my garden shed waiting for some love and attention. I was thinking about painting them white, but now I may just have to have a re-think and go with something a bit more punchy for Autumn! Sending smiles, Em x
