Is anybody happier
Because you passed his way?
Does anyone remember
That you spoke to him today?
This day is almost over
And its toiling time is through;
Is there anyone to utter now
A friendly word for you?
Can you say tonight in passing
With the days that slipped so fast,
That you helped a single person
Of the many that you passed?
Is a single heart rejoicing
Over what you did or said?
Does one whose hopes were fading
Now with courage look ahead?
Did you waste the day? Or lose it?
Was it well or poorly spent?
Did you leave a trail of kindness
Or a scar of discontent?

Welcome to Our Houze.

Hello. I'm glad you have stopped by. Come in and take a look around. Please feel free to comment on the place. Please sign my Guestbook or E-mail me, I know it's not much, but it's home.

I use to spend a lot on time on the Front Porch chatting, but since it's change I've moved mainly to ICQ. We might have met there, on the Porch I was known as

or SaltyOne. But in the real world I'm known as Salt (to my hubby, Mark) or Mommy (to my three children) or Kelly or Kel Houze (to every one else). I've really enjoyed meeting the different people that stop by. If you're one of them, Hi, nice of you to drop in. So on with the tour and introductions!

I guess I should start by telling a little about me and my family. Mark and I have been married for 14 years. We have three children:Zach 13, Nikki 10, and Joshua 8. We live in a small town just South of Canton, Ohio,in the US.

I'm a FULLTIME MOM. Taking care of the kids and playing on the computer are the two things that take up most of my time. There are several hobbies that are shared and enjoyed in our house. I enjoy genealogy. Some of the names I've been working on are Dunfee, Houze, Kolesaric (Kolesaire), LaMorder, Shonk, and Sprout. I also enjoy reading, writing short stories, camping, fishing, cross-stitch and collecting dolls (Victorian Ladies with trunks, Beauty & the Beast [not Disney], and Advertising Babries.

I listen to country music. My favorite singers are: new comers: Trace Adkins, Big House, Keith Halring, Royal Wade Kimes,as well as established singers Clint Black, Tracy Byrd and Mark Chesnutt.

I love to read. My favorite author's are Ann Carberry, Lori Copeland, Jude Deveraux, Debbie Macbomer, William W. Johnstone,& John S. McCord. Actually if the truth be told, I 'll read anything I can get my hands on.
