Irena Sendle, I Love You.

There are a few people  I really wanted to meet.
She was one of them.
Maybe in Heaven,
wishes come true.
; )

Irene in 1947 at 32 years old.
After she had escaped
prison.


Irene at 98 years old.









I have bought one of the movies above for my birthday,
and a documentary about her as well.

“Since it is so likely that (children) will meet cruel enemies, 
let them at least have heard of brave knights  and heroic courage. 
Otherwise, you are making their destiny not brighter, but darker.” 
C.S. Lewis

December 1-25 is the
"Light the World"
initiative of my church.



Encouraging all people to participate
in a
"Light the World"
This means to do small, simple actions to serve others,
which will light the world like 
our light of the world,
Jesus Christ.





Below is a description that is given to our little
children about the initiative.


I think Irena would have liked it.
; )


The Primary General Presidency (of the LDS church)
 is inviting
 children worldwide to participate in the Church’s 
Christmas initiative,
 “Light the World.”
The month-long campaign encourages (all) 
to share the light of Jesus Christ 
through small, but meaningful acts of service 
on each of the 
25 days before Christmas.

“We are reminding children that Jesus Christ is the light of the world,” said Sister Joy D. Jones, Primary General President. 
By participating in the “Light the World” initiative, 
children can do the things that help them not only come to know, 
but also emulate, 
the Savior."
“We have faith in them to be lights. 
We see their potential and it is grand.”

knee~deep ~in ~joy

Grateful for Oatmeal

These days my hubby is prone to fix
oatmeal with raisins, brown sugar and butter
every morning.


Our house smells
delicious.
And....it makes me sing in my head one of my favorite songs
'it's a beautiful day in the neighborhood' 
even though there are grey skies and chilly weather outside.


Dear Mom and Dad,
thank you for your cheerful example and teaching me
to be grateful every day for all good things in life.
I love you and miss you.
(Muah!!!)


"The virtue of gratitude is global and eternally relevant."

"To express gratitude implies that there is a someone to be grateful to. For Lincoln and many others before and since, that someone is God. After enumerating the people’s many blessings, Lincoln writes that "no human counsel hath devised nor hath any mortal hand worked out these great things. They are the gracious gifts of the Most High God, 

who, while dealing with us in anger for our sins, hath nevertheless remembered mercy." "

Italics and bold added by me . 
; )

(the previous are excerpts from this awesome 
Thanksgiving commentary global-gift-gratitude)

I thank thee Father in Heaven
for tender mercies.

grandbaby kisses
purring kitties
flowers
blue sky
delicious scents
hugs
warm home
my morning cereal
and so
much more...
all the blessings I see
and don't see.

Thank you.


Love to you all,
from my bottomless heart.
; )

An Old Fashioned Turkey Day?

It's Monday.
It's a busy week.

I need a good laugh.
Bet you do too!
So enjoy.

Corny song for Corny pictures.
Enjoy!
