Its a Great Time of Year

Life is funny. Sometimes, you are just going through your day, nothing out of the ordinary, and then, out of the blue (or grey, depending on the sky at the time) something hits you and makes you feel happier than you've felt all day. It's only for a moment and it's over before you really know why, but whether it be a sunset, a song, or a smile, that's what makes my days extraordinary. The little extra moments.

Have a great day!

Thank You

Happy Thanksgiving!

Music that is fun and true, cheese pizza from Papa Johns, friendship and good times with friends, Indiana Jones, the tender mercies that make the day better, naps, piano playing, heat from the cold outside, snow on the ground, cells that keep us alive, peace in our community, and another day coming tomorrow.

Whatever it be, there is something for which to give thanks.

Have a great day and a wonderful Thanksgiving!

It was a beautiful autumn day today! The wind blew, the leaves fell, the sun shone, and it felt great. I am grateful for Nature's beauty and for Heavenly Father's wonderful world that we get to live in!

The Sweet Dream of Dulcinea

"I have dreamed thee too long,
never seen thee or touched thee,
but known thee with all of my heart.
Half a prayer, half a song,
thou hast always been with me,
though we have been always apart.

Dulcinea! Dulcinea! I see heaven when I see thee, Dulcinea!
And thy name is like a prayer an angel whispers, Dulcinea, Dulcinea!

If I reach out to thee,
do not tremble and shrink
from the touch of my hand on thy head,
Let my fingers but see
thou art warm and alive
And no phantom to fade in the air.

Dulcinea! Dulcinea! I have sought thee, sung thee, dreamed thee, Dulcinea!
Now I've found thee and the World shall know thy glory, Dulcinea, Dulcinea!"

This is one of my favorite love songs, although I prefer listening to it; the melody really captures the feeling of the song. The dream of one's true love is one that I think gives us all hope and comfort. I think we can find Dulcinea in anyone, as illustrated in the story of Don Quixote. We can and will find our true love, if we look and live for it.

Here's to the Future!

Hey! Here's my blog! I am not going to be using this like a journal or a diary or anything; I just wanted a way to share positive messages and stories that I come across. I feel like the world could use a little cheering up and I hope to do just that with this blog. Here's to the future and the discoveries we'll make! Have a great day!
