The True Meaning Of Life

By Pat A. FlemingPublished: July 2017

The Years have passed by,
In the blink of an eye,
Moments of sadness,
And joy have flown by.

People I loved,
Have come and have gone,
But the world never stopped,
And we all carried on.

Life wasn't easy,
And the struggles were there,
Filled with times that it mattered,
Times I just didn't care.

I stood on my own,
And I still found my way,
Through some nights filled with tears,
And the dawn of new days.

And now with old age,
It's become very clear,
Things I once found important,
Were not why I was here.

And how many things,
That I managed to buy,
Were never what made me,
Feel better inside.

And the worries and fears,
That plagued me each day,
In the end of it all,
Would just fade away.

But how much I reached out,
To others when needed,
Would be the true measure,
Of how I succeeded.

And how much I shared,
Of my soul and my heart,
Would ultimately be,
What set me apart.

And what's really important,
Is my opinion of me,
And whether or not,
I'm the best I can be.

And how much more kindness,
And love I can show,
Before the Lord tells me,
It's my time to go.

Some books just have childhood written all over them. One of these would without a doubt be The Baby-Sitter’s Club.  It was a crucial part of all of our childhoods.  There were always new adventures for them, but we all had our favorite books.

Rumor had it awhile ago that a new Baby-Sitter’s Club TV show would be released.  As exciting as it sounds, there really isn’t anything quite like the original books. Well, thankfully, Scholastic has understood this and has therefore decided to create something for all of us nostalgic fans.

They’ve released a new box set of Baby-Sitter’s Club books, all with the original covers.  Yep, you got that right. No modernized girls, no fancy touch ups, all of them will have the same original look from when they were first released.

The set will include the first to sixth book, meaning you’ll get to revisit Kristy’s Great Idea, Claudia and the Phantom Phone Calls, The Truth About Stacey,  Mary Anne Saves the Day, Dawn and the Impossible Three, and Kristy’s Big Day .

What’s even more exciting is that you can get the whole set for even less than $40.  These stories are completely timeless and we’re sure everyone will enjoy them just as much as they did as children.
