Due to the recent COVID-19 virus outbreak, Spring events and Easter gatherings are cancelled,  churches and places of worship will be closed for Easter, Passover, etc.  But, the seasons and spirit are not cancelled, let’s spread some comfort! A Special Gift, Bunny Slippers No matter how old you are, Spring and Easter are joyful occasions that remind us of bunnies!  During this time, we can still feel happiness – treat yourself kindly and also reach out to surprise others with a little bit of comfort at this time.  It does not have to be anything big.  It is amazing how much comfort something warm and fuzzy can bring, physically as well as mentally, rolling our memories and feelings back to when we felt safe and hugged as innocent youngsters. // Indoor & Outdoor Plush Sponge Bunny Slippers // // Indoor & Outdoor Plush Sponge Bunny Slippers // I recently surprised…

Due to the recent COVID-19 virus outbreak, it looks like most churches and places of worship will be closed for Easter, Passover, etc. As a Special Night of Prayer, my subdivision is setting out Luminaries at dusk on April 11th (Cresswind Subdivision, Peachtree City, Georgia, U.S.A.).   If you would like to do this where you live, please reach out to your neighbors, friends, and other subdivisions to make it a united community event in your area.   What a beautiful thing to spread across our country and the world for one glowing evening of prayer and unity!

Okay, I admit it, sometimes I like a really cozy, easy-to-follow Hallmark Christmas movie!  Why not?!  For those times when you need to just sit still and let your mind drift off into a sweet little movie that doesn’t take much concentration.  I  have heard people make fun of these movies for being “corny”, “bad acting”, “soap opera acting”, blah, blah…..   And, I will admit I feel that way sometimes, but there is no harm done in just going with these sometimes.  Movies don’t always have to be award winning big screen films.  Just fun and easy is good sometimes.  And…… I have a secret to share with you…. ready??….. Big Tim kind of likes to watch them also, LOL!  He would have a fit if he knew I told you that, but he doesn’t read my blog.  It usually ends up in a nap for him, but that’s good…
