a little note of happiness ♥


"Once you fix it in your mind that life itself is a gift, 

you begin to find happiness in just about everything."

Good morning precious friend and colleague! HOW IS SCHOOL? I am barely keeping afloat. I woke up with a sore throat, but I have to go in because I have QRIs to do before conferences begin in two weeks. But when you think of life as a gift, it keeps you smiling, that is for sure..thank you for this important message to help us carry on....be well sweet one. Anita

That is the cutest little bird I have seen in a long time. On a tag, lovely idea, think I could try to copy it if I do my best I think it could work out fine.
Robert Brault is one of my favorites, you shared a beautiful quote today, dearest Maria.

Happy hugs for a wonderful Thursday xo xo
Two more sleeps ..

Robert Brault said...

Maria, you are thoughtful beyond words. Thanks so much for making this effort in my behalf.

MARIA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I see you came via your husband's account? I was stumped when I saw CHRIS, then I saw MARIA....but when I clicked on CHRIS, it took me to his profile! He has blogs too! AND THANK YOU FOR COMING!!!!!! I KNOW, sometimes my favorite blogs' new posts get past me and I think, "HOW DID I MISS THIS?" Oh dearest, I have had that nasty 3 month cough before,and it sure is a respiratory thing...for the last two years, I have not gotten sick with my annual laryngitis; now I have passed that on to my colleague! BUT I have a sore throat that went away and now has come back. Oh, the "HEALTH BENEFITS" of teaching!!!!

Thank you SO much for visiting my shop! I have been in "operation" for two weeks now and I have made more Maria Antoinette tags than I ever imagined I would make since I only did them for fun and occasionally for friends.

Oh, it is Friday my dearest, and we are almost there. I am so tired, sore in my throat and ears, but MARCH ON!!! A quiz and writing for everyone today, and that is IT!

BISOUS MON AMIE! Anita

Looks like the pink bird of happiness came to visit you, Maria. We are taking our 3 oldest Grands to the Lion King in Denver tomorrow - Pop Pop and I are looking forward to it as much as the children. Life is indeed full of wonderful gifts.

Hi Maria; I love the name of your blog and this little bird note says it all, without saying a word. Thanks for centering us in the Lord and keeping us calm. Blessings Terri www.morningdewdrops.typepad.com

GOOD MORNING BEAUTIFUL FRIEND!!!!!!

Oh, there is so much to say regarding your beauty and kindness my dear. Yes, look up, look up and think about how blessed we all are to have a soul. We are locked into eternity. Once we were created, this is it. He has us as stardust, in the palm of His hand...

SO GOOD TO SEE YOU! And yes, when I first saw "CHRIS" I was wondering who this was! Ruben and I had the same situation until finally he just got me my own computer. NOW I CAN VISIT WHENEVER I WANT!!!!!!

Enjoy one extra hour of sleep before going in tomorrow!!! Anita

Rosie said...

You precious, fabulous and darling friend...thank you for coming by! I am home AGAIN...I went back to school yesterday, only to find a mess of things....my students went berserk and put the sub in tears!!!!!!!!!! I wasted my voice on talking to a few of those involved only to get worse. I am home today, and I am enjoying MY TIME here, alone (Ruben is in Baltimore) and NO TALKING!!!

You are so kind to think of me!!!! HOW ARE YOU SWEET ONE???????? Enjoy this day, Anita
