About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

Philip Peng: 100 Years, Part 2

In high school there was one substitute teacher that everyone looked forward to seeing.
He was a quiet, gentle man named Mr. Peng.
I had forgotten about him over the years, but yesterday his name appeared on facebook.
The memories came rushing back.
Mr. Peng was one in a million.

Yes, we loved it when he sang "The Soybean Song".  It made us laugh, but I think he really had a message if we had chosen to listen.  We were just goofy kids.  We had no clue as to the life he had lived.  My goodness, did he live!  This video shows a portion of his life.  I plan on posting the other video of the first portion of his life later.

He lived to be 100 years old! 
I was overjoyed to find out he was a Christian!  I know where he is today.:)
Please watch and enjoy.  Mr. Peng had stories to share.  

The one thing (among many) that comes to mind when I think of Mr. Peng is that you may not remember what someone has said or done but you DO remember how they treated you.  He was a wonderful man and I'm so proud to have known him.  He was kind, gentle and funny.  He made us all feel special.  Thank you, Mr. Peng.  I will see you again someday...

Hi Lori
I really enjoyed watching this video. He seems such a lovely genuine man, I can see why you loved him so much. I would love to see the other part some time. He really should have written a book about his life, it would have made such an interesting read. Thank for sharing this.
