Y: Yesterday, I Believe

This month I am participating in the April 2012 Blogging From A-Z Challenge. I will be blogging every day this month with Sundays off (except for April 1) using a letter of the alphabet in order from A through Z. So, Basically, beginning with April 1, my topic will be themed on something with the letterA, then on April second another topic with the letter B as the theme, and so on until I finish on April thirtieth with the theme based on the letter Z.

Y: Yesterday

I have decided that Yesterday is my favorite.  Yesterday is reliable.  There are no surprises.   Yesterday provides you with many choices and you can hang out there whenever you want.  You can be at your senior prom one minute and your daughter's senior prom the next.   Yesterday can take you to exotic and faraway places over and over again.
Oh, yes I admit, Yesterday can be quite cruel sometimes and it is stubborn about change.  True, Yesterday has a tendency to play the shoulda, woulda and coulda game, but Yesterday does not have the scariness of uncertainty that Tomorrow has and it is without the stress that Today can bring.

The Beatles said it best:
"Yesterday, all my troubles seemed so far away
Now it looks as though they're here to stay
Oh, I believe in yesterday."

I have created a page for Anna's Diary.  It can be found under the Tab titled Anna's Diary.
I have posted all of the entries to date there, starting with January 1, 1929.

Here is today's entry from Anna's Diary [Actually many yesterdays ago]
Sunday, April 28, 1929
Had dinner at Mrs. Naps.  Rained all day long. Played bridge with George and Marietta for a few hours.  Had light supper then home early to bed.

  1. Sometimes, yesterday is the best day. But I try hold out hope for tomorrow, too :-)

  2. Yes, yesterday is safe. Sometimes that's nice to fall back on. But I like the possibilities of today and tomorrow!

  3. Just dropped in from the A-Z Challenge list. Love the ideas you have and the positive outlook of "Yesterday" I am a new follower and will pop back another time and read the rest of your "letters" Hope you had fun with the challenge and congrats!

    Sugar & Spice & All Things ? Nice

  4. Yesterday can be good but I don't want to stay there.  I have my eyes on now.

  5. As I've implied previously, Yesterday and I have a somewhat dysfunctional relationship, but I wouldn't trade it. :)
