This particular autograph book was a gift from a friend on my 10th birthday!
I thought it would be kind of fun to go back through and share with you some of the funny and special autographs that I collected in this little book.
The most famous autograph in my book was from the actress Gloria Swanson:
Anyway, I digress...
I was having such fun looking back through this little autograph book, reading all the funny, pithy sayings that many of my friends wrote back in the day...here are a few that were typical:

It appears that I didn't use this autograph book much after about age 12, so that explains the "maturity level" of these autographs. I also noticed that even though I saved a special page in the book for a "special fella" to write on, none did. I guess it was just the age...boys still thought girls had cooties and would never write in our autograph book...and if they did, it probably wouldn't have been anything very "special".
However, in between the silly sayings I did discover two very special messages from my mother. One I actually chose as my life verse and the key verse that stays on the front page of this particular blog:
My mother wrote this as "A Thought for Every Day"....(and that is why I chose it as my life verse!)
When I read this I just cried. My mother has been gone from earth for about 11 years now, and this was written to me way back about 55 years ago...and I honestly do not remember reading it before now. The other one I had read over and over again, but the pages must have been stuck together on this one because I just don't remember reading it before. And what a powerful blessing and prayer for my life!
