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! In an effort to help keep everyone warm in the colder temperatures and all the snow, we need to get ourselves giggling. So let's get our giggles going to warm us up this morning . . . I don't mean to air my dirty laundry in public, but I have loads of laundry jokes. I promise you they're all clean. If you think there's nothing funny about doing laundry, you just need a dryer sense of humor. Sock it to me!!!

    Have you heard about the new and improved energy star rated clothes dryer that's being touted by the government for its very high 99% energy efficiency . . .
    It's called a clothesline.

    Why don't men like doing the laundry?
    Washers and dryers don't come with a remote control.

    If doing laundry makes you tired, and you decide you've done enough - you'd better think twice . . .
    More laundry!

    What do income taxes and doing laundry have in common.
    Either way you might lose your shirt.

    When I was in college money was tight. Quite often I had to choose between buying laundry detergent or something for breakfast. It was either All or muffin.

    How much fun is doing laundry?
    Loads!

    If your toddler gets all muddy while playing outside, just throw her in the tub and quickly washer and dryer.

    Why are poker players good at doing laundry?
    They know when to hold 'em, know when to fold 'em, know when to walk away, know when they run . . .

    Today has been a perfect finish to my week!
    Every sock in the washer had a matching partner.

    I hope my sense of humor did not leave you hanging high and dry this morning . . .

    Finally . . .

    Knock, knock.
    Who's there?
    Clothes.
    Clothes who?
    Time for me to clothes this now.

    Thanks for dropping by my page for a visit.
    I hope you have loads of fun this weekend!
