Paying it forward.

These words came today, from the Feather, living it up in the Big Apple. Some of them are very involved old stories, so I won't bore you with the details, but suffice it to say it made me seriously cry & be very grateful for her. So, in the interest of the season, here are some wishes for you:

smiles, hugs, hot chocolate, chocolate kisses, mistletoe, cozy slippers, ladybugs, blue boxes, butterflies, peace, traveling mercies, cheese fries, milkshakes, Camellia Grill burgers, Newberry-medal books, whiskers on kittens, Mardi Gras beads, snowflakes, belly laughs, creek wading, notebooks filled with the best parts of great lectures, hot fudge, red wine, Milktray, a bridge in Prague, butterscotch lifesavers, handicrafts, prayers & starlight.

Because really, y'all, if one quarter of this came true for one quarter of the planet, it'd be an amazing day. :)

Newberry Award Books! I love the thought. I feel that it is my duty to expose all children to the award winners...there are so many and so little time. My new crusade has been - - why don't we have any Coretta Scott King Award Winners in our PUBLIC school library?!

I like to add kisses from your spouse & best friend - I know this wasn't directed toward me..but I just wanted to throw that in there. HA!!!

On the subject of Mardi Gras beads, do we need to expose any parts for these. I think it would diminish the fun if we didn't. This would have to take place on a break from reading the Newberry Award Winning Books.

Sarah, I get the same 'warm fuzzies' from reading your blog as I did from reading "Little House in the Big Woods" as a child. Not that you're quite so prairie-like, but I come away with a strong desire to make something with my hands...or just sit by the fire and think smart thoughts. Maybe I'll do both. :)

Natalie's comment=most hilarious comment I think I've ever read in my entire life! I would love to be over at Nat's house while she is thinking smart thoughts and making things with her hands! :) Nat, you can come over here and think smart thoughts anytime you need to!

Okay, I keep going back and reading this post. I think it inspires me. I keep contemplating having smart thoughts and making things with my hands. My mind can NOT go there. This statistics class may kill me. Now drinking margarettas and showing my boobs, that's working today. The sad thing is I'm OLDER than a ya'll by a long shot! I should be the one thinking smart thoughts and cross stitching by the fire! I SHOULD BE A BETTER EXAMPLE! Where is Lee when I need her?
