FABRIC and PAPER ART FROM MY HEART


Out in the Prairie where the wildflowers grow and the song of the birds like melody flows, there's a peace God bestows that brings joy to the soul...

INSPIRATION

Attitude

There once was a woman who woke up one morning, looked in the mirror,

and noticed she had only three hairs on her head.

'Well,' she said, 'I think I'll braid my hair today.'

So she did and she had a wonderful day.


The next day she woke up, looked in the mirror

and saw that she had only two hairs on her head.

'H-M-M,' she said, 'I think I'll part my hair down the middle today.'

So she did and she had a grand day.


The next day she woke up, looked in the mirror and noticed

that she had only one hair on her head.

'Well,' she said, 'today I'm going to wear my hair in a pony tail.

So she did, and she had a fun, fun day.


The next day she woke up, looked in the mirror and

noticed that there wasn't a single hair on her head.


'YAY!' she exclaimed.
'I don't have to fix my hair today!'

Attitude is everything.
Be kinder than necessary,
for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.

Live simply,

Love generously,

Care deeply,

Speak kindly,

and pray continually.



Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass...

It's about learning to dance in the rain.


I received this from my Sister and it is so true. Life is just to short, This says it all.
A wonderful Friday sweet Friends,
