Friday’s Super Short Stories!

Sometimes its the lone bird that sings the most beautiful song, if you take the time to listen!

Some rush around looking for happiness … never seeing the answer that lies in front of their eyes, because their glasses are on top of their head. 

The gift of beauty can lie in one’s hands in many ways. 

I wanted to share pictures that my sister, Karen, shared with me last night. An “Under the Sea”  crib blanket that she crocheted for someone. I may be bias but I think its amazing and she sooo didn’t share her artistic gene with me! I don’t sew! I have my order in of a special designed blanket that I want. I told her she could go into business, so what special designed blanket would you like? LOL!

If Only….

Once upon a time there was a wonderful place far, far away, called Moonbeam Farm.  At Moonbeam Farm there lived an older gentleman with a big heart and a crazy sense of humor. He lived on Moonbeam Farm with his 3 crazy best friends.

His crazy friends consisted of a sassy Barn Owl, Odessa.  A sweet, but tricky Jackalope, Jaxon,  and a curious cat, Dewey,  whose favorite activities were sleeping and eating!

These characters not only look very  different from each other, but their likes, dislikes and abilities are very different. Jaxon would never eat a mouse and Dewey the cat would starve if all he had to eat were veggies and grass. Odessa shakes her head in despair many times over the way the man-servant uses the English language, but it doesn’t stop her from being his friend.

Their differences may be many, but forever best friends they will always be. For they all have big hearts! Hearts that have compassion and love, which enables them to  see past their differences. They celebrate what they have in common, their love of adventuring, their sense of humor and their loyalty to each other.

If only real life could be more  like life at Moonbeam Farm. If only we humans could celebrate our differences instead of letting fear hold us back from opening our hearts to another. If only we could learn from each other, instead of putting the other person down for things we don’t understand. If only  we could let hearts of compassion and love rule, instead of being ruled by what our eyes see.

If only fiction could become a little more real!
