Color me

Shades and hues of this and that

Here is a Fun Fact, by the time they turn ten years old, American children use up approximately 720 crayons each, with blue being their favorite color.  The crayon scent is one of the most recognized, after peanut butter and coffee. 
Hours spent playing with our colors.  I have some crayons in my coloring box even now.  I don't do much in coloring books because I am not around small children.  I do have a coloring book my niece gave years ago during recovery and I still do a picture here and there, and I don't get upset with myself when I color outside of the lines. 
And Aqua Blue is my favorite color.
I am not sure if this card is about colors, charkras, or having a light bulb moment.  Just color me happy today.
Thank You!

Grin and bear it

This card reminds of the great bear adventure in our area last year.

What a cute card.  Last year there was a black bear that mosied through the area.  She/he was not a normal sighting, in fact a hundred years since one was spotted around here.  I appreciate the unexpected and the unusual; something new and interesting to make Life a bit more enjoyable.  Thank you for all the wonderful diversity that Mother Earth presents to us.

"Woke up, fell out of bed
  Dragged a comb across my head
  Found my downstairs and drank a cup
  And looking up I noticed I was late..."

I am grateful I get another day.  I got up and got dressed on my own.  Poured my own cereal drank a cup of tea, and on with my day.  Thank You.  Don't know what about this card made me thing of the Beatles song A DAY IN THE LIFE,  maybe just the awareness of a new day, a good day, a day in my life.  The tree reminds me if I have one of those days when I start out, falling out of bed and everything runs amiss, I can go find a place by or beneath a tree and take a moment to calm and ground myself and bring my world back in perspective.

BS detector

What a wonderful creature the wolf is.  I have admired them my whole life. Mother Nature is a really great gal to give us such diversity of life here on Planet Earth.  I am ever so grateful for all that is available.  Still there are times that I have to be on guard because not all is what it can appear.  Like the wolf I have a keen sense of what is right and wrong, or at least my perception of right or wrong.  I am ever so grateful for my instincts.  Most of time my intuition and gut feelings are right on track, and as I have matured through the years, do not dismiss them.

Sense of Self

I have been thinking and reflecting on this card and it comes to me for all the things I am grateful for the first and foremost should be me.  I don't often put myself at the top of list, really if you think about it that is where we belong, at the top of our list.  So for today I will keep myself in consideration throughout the whole of the day.  Grateful for all the things I do for me for me.

The woods so dark and deep

I can appreciate the deep silence of this woodland.  A place to reflect where I have been, where I am at, and what lies ahead. No distractions here.  The woods are just as beautiful in the winter as they are throughout the rest of year.  Thank goodness for the changing of the Season.  Sure the cold is challenging, but I wouldn't want to miss the trees and their fabulous Fall foliage, nor their announcement of Spring when their buds and leaves burst forth.

Be it ever so humble

Ollie Ollie Oxen Free

When I was a little girl we used to play hide and go seek, and when the seeker gave up we used to call "Ollie Ollie come in free"  although the original was 'oxen free' as above.  We played hide and seek between our yard and the neighbor's across the street.  Usually involved seven or eight of us, sometimes a couple more.  Climbing the trees was not an allowed hiding place, too difficult in the dark for the seeker to find you.  Home base was safety.  Even today home is the safe place.  There have been a few days when I come home I say out-loud "Ollie Ollie Carolyn's home free."  There is no place like home.  Familiar, comfort, safety, protection.
Thank goodness for home.  Be it ever so humble there is no place like home.  Go ahead click your heels together...

Thank goodness for friends

This afternoon I am going over to this Queen's home.  Several of us are having lunch at her place and we are going to go over health care plans for the upcoming year.  There will be four of us for lunch and we are going to compare policies of The National Health Care.  Now this gal does not need to find insurance, she has hers taken care of but the other three of us having BC/BS which dropped out, have to find new coverage.  Just like this Queen she is helping out and feeding us and offering encouragement while we get things sorted out.
Friends are the best and I am glad and grateful for them.

Happy Dance

Those moments of pure joy when your feet start to tap and before you know it you are up and moving and grooving.

"Gratitude is a powerful manifesting energy in the Universe, helping you gracefully dance with the magical light-footedness of the fairies.  Taking time to say "thank you" to your family, coworkers, the fairies, and God creates a circular flow that brings even more abundance. Every day give thanks for something in your life. You can do it aloud or just in your prayers."  -directly quoted from the booklet

Self Interest

Having confidence in oneself.

I am fascinated with the fountain of ideas and thoughts that are bursting forth from the fairy out front.  Sometimes I have the advantage and sometimes not.  Clearly today I may have the upper-hand in a situation.  The lesson for me today is to use that advantage or gift or snowballs for the right reason, even if others don't agree with my choice.
I am so grateful for having choices.  Not all do.  There are many places in the world that you are told what to do, when to do it, and how to do it.  Thankfully I get to choose most of my days.

Water: a clear, colorless, odorless, and tasteless liquid

What a boring dimensionless description of something so vital and essential to us all.  Water, I take it for granted most of the time.  I turn on the tap - water.  Grab a bottle from the fridge - water. Flush the toilet, wash the dishes, take a shower, walk in the rain -Water.  Not all are so lucky to live with the abundant supply I take for granted.  I give no thought that I am seventy-five percent water, not sure how clear, colorless, odorless my liquid content is.  That is something to think about.
For today and hopefully for most of my days I will really pay attention to all the wonderful ways water is a part of my life, and each and every time say, "Thank You"

Hope springs eternal

The Fairy has opened the Chalice Well, releasing hope and magic.  Brings to mind wishing wells; to this day I will stop pull a coin from pocket or purse, close my eyes, think of my wish and toss my coin in hoping for my wish to come true.  At sixty I still believe, and that is something to be grateful for.  I haven't lost my connection to magic, possibilities, and the promise of wonderment.
'Find a penny pick it up and all day long you have good luck' and if I happen to come upon a wishing well and have my lucky penny with me, all kinds of wonderful are available to me.

Go ahead, make a wish!
