Yesterday was National Chocolate Cupcake Day! I Love finding a reason to Celebrate the day. We as people seem to live so much for the big moments of life that sometimes I think we forget to celebrate the small things. I have learned to appreciate the small moments so much more and I find myself a much happier person for it! So find something small to Celebrate Today!
In small proportions we just beauties see, And in short measures life may perfect be. ~Ben Jonson~
I realized it has been a while since I had shared one of our Celebration Days. So here you are! On October 13th we celebrated National Yorkshire Pudding day. If any of you have never tried this delectable yumminess you can find the recipe here . These little bad boys remind me of holidays with my Grandpa. Food has a way of bringing all the good, sad, and best memories right to your heart in a way not much else can.
Animals give me more pleasure through the viewfinder of a camera than they ever did in the cross hairs of a gun sight. And after I've finished "shooting," my unharmed victims are still around for others to enjoy. I have developed a deep respect for animals. I consider them fellow living creatures with certain rights that should not be violated any more than those of humans. ~Jimmy Stewart~
I had a proud Mom moment yesterday. My near teen son decided to dance. Now that alone is worth applause, however what makes it a super happy Mom moment was the fact he did it at the 50 yard line in front of a crowd of people at a Track Meet. I love that he is so comfortable with who he is that he can Jazz hands for the World! Never lose that my Son, Never lose that.
We're fools whether we dance or not, so we might as well dance. ~Japanese Proverb~
Graduation is only a concept. In real life every day you graduate. Graduation is a process that goes on until the last day of your life. If you can grasp that, you'll make a difference. ~Arie Pencovici~
The ideals which have lighted my way,
and time after time
have given me new courage to face life cheerfully,
