Welcome Sparklers!

My word for 2021 is Present
The word present has multiple meanings, most of which concern giving (a present is a gift) or time (the present is right now).
The verb present might mean to deliver something like a speech, or perform something like a play.

My word for 2020 — 20/20 Vision
Vision Board - Creating a sacred space that displays what I love.
Vision - Small home with things I love.
**We did move to town - it was a good move!

My word for 2019 was LISTEN
Empathic listening is a way of listening and responding to another person that improves mutual understanding and trust.
**The Set-aside Prayer: from (DJBTOO— Donna)
Help me set aside everything I know, and everything I think I know, for an open mind and new experiences.

My word for 2018 was JOY!
Finding Joy in the journey. It was a very joyful year!

My word for 2017 was HOPE
I have hope in my heart for all good things personally and spiritually. I have hope for a world at peace.

My word for the year 2016 was ADVENTURE !
It was a good word and forced me to step out of my comfort zone many times. Some adventures were with friends, some with family, some alone and many that I will always cherish.

From: Brave Enough by Cheryl Strayed
Nobody will protect you from your suffering. You can't cry it away or eat it away or starve it away or walk it away or punch it away or even therapy it away. It's just there, and you have to survive it. You have to endure it. You have to live through it and love it and move on and be better for it and run as far as you can in the direction of your best and happiest dreams across the bridge that was built by your own desire to heal. Therapists and friends can help you along the way, but the healing--the genuine healing, the actual real-deal, down-on-your-knees-in-the-mud change--is entirely and absolutely up to you.

    Happy Friday! Time for a little bit of fun and laughter to get you primed for the weekend ahead. Well, in case you don't follow the "National days calendar", today is National Read a Fairy Tale day.

    So here are a few frankly fractured fairy tales that I hope will give you a giggle . . .


    emoticon What's the difference between a Northern Fairy Tale, and a Southern Fairy Tale?
    The Northern Fairy Tale begins "Once upon a time', and the Southern Fairy Tale begins "Y'all ain't gonna believe this!"

    emoticon Did you read the fractured fairy tale about the girl who lives in the woods and steals from the rich and gives it all to her Granny?
    It's titled - Little Red Robin Hood.

    emoticon Do all fairy tales begin with "Once Upon A Time"?
    No every two years they come out with a whole series that begin with "If elected, I promise . . ."

    emoticon I heard about a fractured fairy tale about three creatures who live in trees are scared of the Big Bad Wolf.
    It's called “The Three Little Figs”.

    emoticon What did Cinderella say when the photographer lost her photographs ?
    "Someday my prints will come!"

    emoticon Rapunzel is a very long drawn out hairy fairy tale.

    emoticon Most women have read the fractured fairy tale titled, "You Have to Kiss A Lot of Frogs To Find A Prince".

    emoticon The prince summoned up all his courage after he slayed the evil dragon.
    He rode like the wind back to the castle, jumped off his high horse, and proposed to the princess. She refused, and he lived happily ever after.

    And last but not least . . .
    emoticon There is a very funny little known fairy tale about Snow White's half brother - Egg White.

    I hope you have a Happily Ever After Weekend! emoticon
