It is only with the heart that one can see clearly, for the most essential things are invisible to the eye.”
― Hans Christian Andersen, The Ugly Duckling

Now, why did I choose a quote from The Ugly Duckling instead of The Wild Swans?  Mainly because there wasn’t a quote to be found from the Hans Christian Anderson fairytale that I love so much.  Not one that coordinated with the above photo anyway.

I continue to read my beloved fairytales to my grandchildren.  Many would say they don’t translate well in these modern times.  Actually, I dare to disagree.  I learned patience, perseverance, and that sometimes silence is golden from reading The Wild Swans, and these are qualities I want to pass to my grandchildren, modern society be hanged.

I always dreamed that Disney would make a movie of my favorite fairytale one day.  I no longer want that as they would just change the storyline so much that it would be unrecognizable, and I am a Disney fan.  If you care to read my favorite fairytale, you can find it here.  I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I have over the years.  Be kind to one another.  TWMA♥

Living Life

Life is not a race – but indeed a journey.  Be honest.  Work hard.  Be choosy.  Say “thank you”, “I love you”, and “great job” to someone each day.  Go to church, take time for prayer.  The Great Spirit giveth and the Great Spirit taketh.  Let your handshake mean more than pen and paper.  Love your life and what you’ve been given, it is not accidental ~ search for your purpose and do it the best you can.  Dreaming does matter.  It allows you to become that which you aspire to be.  Laugh often.  Appreciate the little things in life and enjoy them.  Some of the best things really are free.  Do not worry, less wrinkles are more becoming.  Forgive, it frees the soul.  Take time for yourself ~ plan for longevity.  Recognize the special people you’ve been blessed to know.  Live for today, enjoy the moment. ~ Bonnie Mohr
