Time and Love

Once upon a time, there was an island where all the feelings lived: Happiness, Sadness, Knowledge, and all of the others, including Love. One day it was announced to the feelings that the island would sink, so all constructed boats and left. Except for Love.

Love was the only one who stayed. Love wanted to hold out until the last possible moment.

When the island had almost sunk, Love decided to ask for help.

Richness was passing by Love in a grand boat. Love said,
"Richness, can you take me with you?"
Richness answered, "No, I can't. There is a lot of gold and silver in my boat. There is no place here for you."

Love decided to ask Vanity who was also passing by in a beautiful vessel. "Vanity, please help me!"
"I can't help you, Love. You are all wet and might damage my boat," Vanity answered.

Sadness was close by so Love asked, "Sadness, let me go with you."
"Oh . . . Love, I am so sad that I need to be by myself!"

Happiness passed by Love, too, but she was so happy that she did not even hear when Love called her.

Suddenly, there was a voice, "Come, Love, I will take you." It was an elder. So blessed and overjoyed, Love even forgot to ask the elder where they were going. When they arrived at dry land, the elder went her own way. Realizing how much was owed the elder,

Love asked Knowledge, another elder, "Who Helped me?"
"It was Time," Knowledge answered.
"Time?" asked Love. "But why did Time help me?"
Knowledge smiled with deep wisdom and answered, "Because only Time is capable of understanding how valuable Love is."

Thoughtful Thursday – Hogwash

I wonder how many people have gone out and smoked dried banana peels because someone else had told them they could get high on it, I know a few who have… LOL… but its all malarkey, you won’t get high, you just end up feeling gullible.

The other day I saw the above clip on YouTube about how to make your Mountain Dew glow. So today I thought I would do it with the kids since it looked cool. While out doing business I got all the needed ingredients took them home had dinner and parent time then just as it was starting to get dark I invited my two kids with the other three in the home and before long there was a crowd of about 12 people all gathered around to see my “glow in the dark cocktails.”

After mixing the ingredients the mix didn’t glow. I was like…”What???” and so we went and watched the clip again. And mixed the concoction about 6 more times before concluding it is a hoax. So later on I decided to do a little bit more YouTube research and realized many people have tried it and it doesn’t work. They get it to glow by adding the fluid from a glow stick to it. So just cuz’ you see it on YouTube doesn’t make it so… This was hogwash!!!

At least we all had a good laugh at it and I was able to use the surplus mountain dew for a future "get out of jail free" card. Who says bribes have to be money?

I think I want to watch some “Myth Busters” now…

Thursday Thought – Frist day of Spring!

Today is the first day of Spring. Now Spring traditionally heralds a time of rebirth and change, a shedding of the old and a putting on of the new. Often people just think of the birds singing and trees blossoming when they think of Spring. We tend to forget that growth only comes with the stretching, often painful. To have the flowers grow you have to have the cold and dark of the rainy days. For the butterflies to take flight they have to emerge from their cocoons.
Often change is not always easy to take, but needful. It is for our good and growth. So my prayers are with you as you face the changes that life is bringing your way as I look forward and anticipate mine. Big hug!

Time Change

The times changed today to Daylight Saving Time so don’t forget to set your clocks ahead one hour.

I like time and how it changes things. With and in time we move away from some things yet at the same time it draws us closer to other things. Today I moved an hour closer to you…I am glad about that.
