crazy, weird, UNIQUE!

I love Mickey!

Why does the sight of that crazy little mouse that was sketched out by Walt Disney so many years ago make my face smile before I even think about it?

I see those ears and just think JOY!

Some people see $$$ and think of the amount of money it takes to go to a Disney Park.  I know it takes a chunk of change, but when our family went there a couple of years ago, it truly was MAGICAL.

I feel like Mickey is my friend.  I KNOW HIM!  I mean, he hugged me!  I was at his “house” there in Orlando and he introduced me to so many of his fellow Disney family members.  That makes us tight, right?

Well, either way, that is the way I feel about it.

The fact that he is so ALIVE NOW  …and he just started as pencil and paper is amazing to me.  It’s like every artist’s dream…to have their creation touch others positively.   Walt Disney started something that, I’m sure, he didn’t realize would be this big.  I’m certain he knew it would be great, but really…ALL THIS!?!   His vision and creativity ended up being the sparks that built this enormous fire of awesomeness!

I love the awe in eyes of all ages when they see THE MOUSE …or other characters.

AND even though I know there is a person in that mouse outfit…

I love Mickey!

“Do what you feel in your heart to be right – for you’ll be criticized anyway.”
Eleanor Roosevelt

This quote came to mind today mainly because so many people are quick to criticize the weather people when we should all keep in mind what their job really entails.  The human race, some more than others, love to criticize others no matter what their job, opinion or actions.  This will always be… that is why I like the Roosevelt quote.  She is so right.  There will always be those who hate on you.  Haters gonna hate.

If you look at any weather forecaster and their record of predictions, we should already know they cannot do their job to perfection (WHO REALLY CAN!  There is always room for improvement!).  THEY are not IN CONTROL of what the weather does.  They can only guess, but calling them Weather Guessers just doesn’t sound right.  Forecasters try to predict correctly with tools and calculations, but sometimes that task is like trying to lasso the wind.   This is definitely true in our part of the world.  Texas weather is crazy!

We are in the middle of a snow day.  It’s a freezing cold, stay at home from school kind of snow day.  This is the kind of day students, no matter what age, LOVE.   From the wide-eyes of a 10 year old at the site of a winter wonderland to the actuality of sleeping in of a 16 year old, it’s all love.  I, as a teacher, would rather not miss a day of work only to have to make it up later, but I must say, I do love seeing the excitement of my children.  (birth and non-birth ones)

The weather here in Northeast Texas as much of Texas is so unpredictable.  Sometimes it makes me crazy, but most of the time, as with any situation, I REJOICE IN IT!  The snow today is beautiful.  I don’t want to touch it, but it’s beautiful.

I totally admit, I’m not a cold weather lover, but without it, how would I really know that the Texas 90 plus degree summer days are my favorite?  I wouldn’t.  If we didn’t have dark days, how would we truly appreciate the light?  We wouldn’t!  If there weren’t valleys, how could we be in awe of the mountains?  I think you get where I’m going.

I’m just trying to say, give this day and everyday a chance.  Stop being quick to criticize and more quick to find the silver lining, the bright spot…THE JOY!  LOVE, don’t hate.

It is TOTALLY true that you can’t make everyone happy, but you can make YOU happy…just by your attitude.  Find the happiness and joy, rejoice in THAT.  Change your attitude even tho, EVEN THEN, you…

Can’t make EVERYONE happy.

LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL LIKE A CUPCAKE! 

You may not see cupcakes as pretty, but I sure do.  I love when they look like little presents.  I absolutely love their SMELL!  It’s so sweet and happy.  Maybe you need to compare life to something you think is beautiful.  God gives us plenty of things to use.  Nature alone holds a magnitude of things, places and events.  Choose your “cupcake.”

I was once told by my sweet little boy that I was beautiful like a cupcake and it stuck with me.  I know there are days where I don’t look it.  I don’t want to look it on some days.  We have those lazy, I don’t wanna do squat today kind of days, but it’s important to always remember the cupcake.  You can be beautiful in your soul!

I am so excited about today for so many reasons.  My husband who has…
