“A bird doesn’t sing because it has an answer. It sings because it has a song.” Maya Angelou
I sure wish I had all the answers! But I refuse to let it keep me from singing!
“Writing is the painting of the voice.” Voltaire
I just found this quote and I think it has become one of my favorites!
“Books are the plane, and the train and the road. They are the destination and the journey. They are home.” Anna Quindlen
I have loved books since the age of 4! I could read anywhere when I was little, in a crowded, noisy room,didn’t matter. I lost myself in the book. Being examined by a Dr. Yup, when I was little, my Mom said I wouldn’t let go of the book, kept reading as the Dr. tested my reflexes and checked me over. You just can’t put down a good book 🙂
HI everyone! A drawback from working with little kids is all the germs they carry with them. At our daycare starting last Monday our little ones were dropping like flies. On Friday I was the one to drop and am still recuperating. That is why I have not been blogging and I have been missing it and missing reading other blogs. But I am getting better and hopefully by tomorrow I will be back to blogging. 🙂 STAY WELL everyone and stay WARM!! This week looks like its going to be one of the coldest weeks we have had yet this winter. Glad I have my cozy robe!!
I will not be brought down!
At work my class of 2 year olds have a favorite game they love to play. It is the Color Game. Pretty sure that part of the reason they love it so much is the little candy they get when they find the right color 🙂 The game consists of holding up a laminated circle and asking them what color it is.With joy they start on their hunt for that color. Their big smile when they point to something of the right color is great to see. They are proud of themselves! They don’t get discouraged if they don’t find it right away, they keep looking. What the other teacher and I have noticed is how often they miss what is right in front of them. We sometimes have make ourselves stifle our laughter.
The color that they are looking for will sometimes be on their shirt, or on a toy that they are holding right in their hands! But they will search around the room looking and at times find the very smallest thing of that color 🙂 Isn’t that so much like life? At times we can be searching and searching and the answer is right smack dab in front of us. The answer can be so big, like the white walls in our rooms. No child has ever pointed to the walls for the color white. The answers may not always be where we expect them to be, but they are there. Keep your eyes open today as you go about your day, don’t miss what may be right in front of you!
Yes sometimes the search for answers can be very hard, and they aren’t easy to find; but don’t make it hard when its not!
Good Morning my friends! I am starting off with a quote that I sent my girls off to school with.
Be the Somebody who makes Everyone feel like a Somebody! Anonymous
This next quote goes along with that and is my desire,
I want to inspire people. I want someone to be able to look at me and say,
“Because of you I didn’t give up.” Anonymous
What a honor to have that be said of you! For the last quote I had to smile. The meaning of the quote is not new, but said in a way that struck me as unique and another reason to like Ghandi
“I will not let anyone walk through my mind with their dirty feet.” Ghandi
We are in control of what we let enter our mind! Go have a great day!
This poem was posted online by my friend Julie and I asked her if I could share it on here. It expressed my feelings so well! This is my thank you to my readers that I have never met!
It’s strange to have a friend like you,
have never hugged, shook their hand,
or looked into their eyes.
But you have been touched by their soul,
seen the good in their hearts and
felt the warmth of their being.
The friends I have never met are not my
friends untouched, I have felt them when I needed them,
I have confided in them and they are some of the kindest people I have known.
My friends never forget just how special you are to me!!
