Life is a Special Occasion!
Today is National Bluebird of Happiness Day! The image of the Bluebird of Happiness has evolved into the universal symbol for carefree joy, a precious commodity in this grim world. The Bluebird is fickle, and doesn’t come when it’s called, but visits when it will. Your job is to make that feeling last.
May the Bluebird of Happiness light upon your shoulder and sing you sweet melodies forever and a day.
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
There’s a bluebird on my shoulder. It's the truth, it's actual. Everything is satisfactual.
For years songwriters have adopted the bluebird as a symbol of happiness and cheer. Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah is one of many popular songs that features a bluebird, Mr. Bluebird on my shoulder, epitomized the 'Bluebird of Happiness', as a symbol of cheer.
I count myself as an optimist and always look for the bright side of life and this could very well be my theme song, but I also like the song that says, Somewhere over the rainbow bluebirds fly…
In the past, bluebirds were given as a traditional housewarming gift to bless a new home with happiness and good luck. Many cultures hold similar beliefs regarding the bluebird. It is widely accepted as a symbol of cheerfulness, happiness, prosperity, hearth and home, new birth, good health and many other positive sentiments.
I’ve pictured just a few of my bluebirds in this post today. They do make me feel happy !
I hope you all have a wonderful Wednesday !
It’s 91 days until Christmas:
Prepare your holiday budget! Don't forget gifts, food, entertaining, decor, crafts, and anything else that is a significant part of your holiday tradition.
COUNTING MY GIFTS
As long as there are bluebirds, there will be miracles and a way to find happiness
I have counted at least 3 things every day that I'm thankful for almost 2 years and have now reached 2000 gifts. On my way now to 3000. I'm not stopping, but will continue on counting. There is always, always something to be thankful for.
2066. for bluebirds, a symbol of cheer
2067. for the bright side of life, a positive way to live
2068. for joy, a feeling that lasts
Enter into His courts with thanksgiving — and in His presence is fullness of Joy!

ADVICE FOR TODAY
An optimist is someone who figures that if it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it's the bluebird of happiness.
A little smile, a word of cheer,
A bit of love from someone dear…
