A to Z Challenge – S is for Sitting Bull

“Behold, my friends, the Spring has come; the earth has gladly received the embraces of the sun, and we shall soon see the results of their love.

Sitting Bull

Spring is such a beautiful time of year with so many things growing and blooming. I love the thought of it being the “embrace of their love” from the earth and sun. Take a minute to see the new growth and be amazed by it’s beauty.

A to Z Challenge – E is for Elvis

“Truth is like the sun. You can shut it out for a time, but it ain’t goin’ away.”

Elivs Presley

When I decided to do quote I began searching for a lot of people that would be recognized with one name only… I hope people still know who Elvis is. Although. probably 15 years ago, when I was at a store I heard a couple of teenagers talking in the checkout lanes, pointing to a magazine with him on it and saying, “Who is that?” So undoubtably there are some out there in younger generations that don’t know. I did my part to introduce my daughter to all kinds of music and I know she knows who Elvis is… if she didn’t know him, I think my mom would haunt me for raising her wrong ha, ha, ha!

This quote is about truth and the fact you can never get away from it no matter what you try. That is something that can be hard to learn from time to time.

Here is one of his hits that broke all the girls hearts…

Happy and Grateful – Day 95

We have reached the month of April and I am still on course to post daily with my happiness and gratitude I have found.  Please join in if you feel like doing this too by sharing in the comments or on your own blog.  There is so much to be happy and grateful for.

Busy day today, too much anxiety, too much disappointment, but still there was a few moments of happiness and gratitude.

I had an out-of-town doctors appointment and I have lots of anxiety when I drive it.  BUT my daughter was off work and offered to take me there.  So that was a good thing today… avoiding the driving and seeing my daughter both.  We shared a nice lunch afterwards and got some coffee for the drive home.  One of the best things though… on the way home I had to squint because the sun was actually out!  Seems like it has been cloudy forever!

So in spite of all the negatives I was still happy to see both my daughter and the sun.  And I was grateful I did not have to drive in all the traffic.  Now I am going to put my negative flowing mind in a direction of sleep hoping to wake up in better spirits tomorrow with the sun!
