A Few Quotes About Pansies!!

"Darker than darkest pansies."
  Alfred Tennyson, The Gardener's Daughter (1842).


"Pray, love, remember: and there is pansies, that's for thoughts."
William Shakespeare

"I leave pansies, the symbolic flower of free thought, in memory of the Great Agnostic, Robert Ingersoll, who stood for equality, education, progress, free ideas and free lives, against the superstition and bigotry of religious dogma. We need men like him today more than ever. His writing still inspires us and challenges the 'better angels' of our nature, when people open their hearts and minds to his simple, honest humanity. Thank goodness he was here.”
 Bruce Springsteen

By plucking her petals, you do not gather the beauty of the flower.
Rabindranath Tagore

Take an inventory of your life and look specifically for the blessings, large and small you have received. Thomas S. Manson

Marianne Williamson

I woke up to find that it is stilllllll winter.

 It's pretty tough when you read about the weather at home and it sounds like spring has arrived for them already. But, as there is not much you can do about it, I sat down with my cold cereal and looked out the window.
1. The sky was a pretty shade of blue
 2. There were birds flitting around in the trees
3. It wasn't snowing
4. It looked pretty darned peaceful out there.

ahhh all is right with my world this morning!!  :)

When Was The Last Time??

 I looked out the window last night and found the brightest star in the sky and made a wish. That made me think about falling stars and what they might be all about? I'm wondering if they could be a star that someone has just made a wish upon?? I wonder how many of them come true? I am going to go with all of them!

The Perfect Morning So Far...

Obviously it doesn't take all that much and  I'm hoping the rest of the day is as awesome!!! Here's the order of my morning so far... ;)

1. Made breakfast... okay it was cold cereal but I mixed two kinds together!!  One was Cheerios and the other was some kind of cinnamon squares in flavor and I love cinnamon.

2. I made an entire pot of coffee just for me... the filter fell in and I had to pour the coffee through twice... but it was ALL MINE!

3. Fished some English Muffins out of the freezer and sat one on top of the dripping coffee to thaw. Mostly worked!  I managed to cut it apart without tooo much difficulty.

4. I read a few chapters of "If You Were Here" by Jen Lancaster... and gained a lot of laughter points for SuperBetter.  On the other hand, we are putting the house up for sale in the spring... I hope finding the book wasn't an omen of sorts.

I think that it was all the laughing that made my morning different from other mornings!  We really don't laugh nearly enough!!!
