Memory Jar ~

I walked to the edge of the ocean
Just to fill my jar with sand
Just in case I get the notion
To let it run through my hand...

Love Makes The World Go Round... And Round! ;)

Chicken heart shaped nuggets served at school for lunch and heart shaped sugar sprinkled cookies for dessert. Outside my window where I work, puffed paper hearts made with love by the children, hanging in the corridor was my view. In the evening, after my class, a Chai tea latte to top my day.

Setting one day out of the year to celebrate love... is a shame. After all, "Love is what makes the world go round." I think we should take time to let people we care about or have crossed paths with and share how we feel about them. In that particular moment, it could be a touch, a smile or a conversation. Love grows leaps and bounds. You can see it take affect and ripple out into the universe and come back to you in folds. It can be an attitude that shapes your day... that attitude can make all the difference!

Valentines day, none the less is a day we observe love. It comes easy for some and hard for others. It could be the door that opens to a great beginning.

My husband and I got married on Valentines Day and are going strong on our 26th year of wedded bliss. We celebrate every day, but extra on February 14.

Let's Walk Out In The Rain!

I Love The Rain 

Hey, baby. Let's walk out in the rain 
It's rainin'
It's pourin' 
But I ain't complaining
'Cause I love the rain

Talk of all those things that we never thought we'd say 
Let's dance between the raindrops 
Get soaked to the skin 
Wash away the stink of this pain and suffering

It's rainin' 
It's pourin' 
But I ain't complaining 
'Cause I love the rain

I'll climb up on the rooftops 
Stick a spire into the sky 
Prick the clouds until they burst 
On the city, you and I 
We could talk about the weather 
Or the price of London rent 
But I'm sick and tired of being dry 
So, let's get wet!

It's rainin' 
It's pourin' 
But I ain't complaining 
'Cause I love the rain
