Life is a Special Occasion!
This is a day that Fairy Tales are made of and for. It's Tell a Fairy Tale Day . We all know that everybody loves a good fairy tale. To qualify as a fairy tale, a story does not have to begin with Once upon a time, but, they usually do. It is a requirement that the story has a happy ending. There's nothing better than a good story that ends with and they all lived happily ever after.
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Obsessed by a fairy tale, we spend our lives searching for a magic door and a lost kingdom of peace.
I’ve always loved fairy tales. I like the thoughts of they all lived happily ever after. Of course we know that is not always the case but it is a good thought to keep. One of my favorites for Spring is the Velveteen Rabbit and then there is the story of Bambi, telling about how one spring morning, in a little hidden forest glade, a fawn was born.
We had a bit more snow yesterday. Not a lot but flurries that amounted to an inch or so. It managed to cover all the dirty melting mounds around here and freshen everything up with a new coating of white. This morning it looks like we have another couple of inches to add to that.
I’ve been wrapping up and putting away my valentine decor and beginning to get the Spring things out. Little by little it will look like Peter Rabbit lives here at my house. Spring will come and dreams will come true!
COUNTING MY GIFTS
If you see the magic in a fairy tale, you can face the future.
I have counted at least 3 things every day that I'm thankful for this past year and have now reached my 1000 gifts. I'm not stopping, but will continue on counting. There is always, always something to be thankful for.
1442. for stories that warm our hearts and souls
1443. for rabbits that remind us of Spring
1444. for the children in my life to tell stories to
Enter into His courts with thanksgiving — and in His presence is fullness of Joy!
PRAYER FOR OUR TROOPS
Please pray for God's protection of
our troops and HIS wisdom for their
Lord, hold our troops in
your loving hands.
Protect them as they protect us.
Bless them and their families for the
selfless acts they perform for us
in our time of need. I ask this in the
name of Jesus, our Lord and Savior.
AND bless our Police Officers, Firefighters
and Paramedics and EMT's
GOD BLESS YOU ALL !
Some day you will be old enough to start reading fairy tales again.
A little smile, a word of cheer,
A bit of love from someone dear…
