Last week I finally got into the groove of Alphabe Thursday with Ms. Jenny and the gang who share such great ideas, poems, stories, and just about anything marvelous, made for fun and maybe even crafty! I used "L" for Love because afterall February is the month of love and we all enjoy being showered with some attention, especially during the day of Love, February 14th. In my quest for love I found another blogger who is involved in a ministry with girls that have been in different types of abusive situations in the country of Brazil. The Day of Love isn't until June so you have until April 1 to send a card, handmade, store bought, it does not matter. I am sharing the address here:
Hope Unlimited for Children
P. O. Box 100
Jefferson City, TN 37760
But you can stop by the blog yourself and check this story out here. I am always anxious to help. It is just in my nature. I have had many wonderful opportunities here to to meet people going through difficult life journeys and I encourage you to stop by and read the story behind this.
Life is difficult so please join me in this simple endeavor to brighten a young girls day. It speaks volumes of the kindness all of us have to share. Thank you.
Now for my "M" post. I am in the mood for Love so I will share a simple and sweet Love is... with each one of you. Many have heard me say this before but I use to cut these little cartoons out of the "funny papers" in the daily news and give them to my hubby. He has all of them. I use to cut them out and glue them onto construction paper scraps. It bring both of us great big smiles even today, all these years later. Love never changes. It is a constant.
So here goes my "Moon" post: My Love is.. shows that you two can outshine the stars but you can also enjoy a quiet moment under a hanging paper moon. I love the moon, I like to see it hanging low in the sky shining like a huge bright silver coin. I love when it is a small sliver like a tiny slice of cake. I enjoy seeing it when it is a half moon glimmering in the night sky lighting our path. The moon is one incredible Did you know that the moon is the Earth's only natural satellite? It has been gracing the skies for many, many centuries. It's gravitational influence produces the oceans tides and slight lengthening of the day.During an eclipse of the moon, you will notice a reddish tint on it. It appears in various fashion across the skies and it is a sight I never tire of seeing. There are so many influences in our world that are resulting from the moon. One a simple note one of my favorite childhood books that I read to my own children is called "Goodnight Moon".
