It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, read a little poem and meet Cino as dun, dun, dun, dun…Animal Paladin!
(In case you don’t know, because I didn’t, Paladin means leading champion of a cause, hero, devoted to kindness.)
TRYING TO SAVE THE DAY
Animals of all sizes and shapes,
The dogs, cats, lions, and apes
Intended by God to be blessed,
And instead are being oppressed
Listen up, don’t you fear,
The AAFBT team is here
With Super Animal Paladin,
Doing a lot of the battling
It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and listen to a story by me. 🙂
Yesterday was good old Dr. Seuss’s birthday! So I made my own online little rhyming book in honor of him.
This is my first attempt at making something like this where I use my voice and my own images. I found out I still have a lot to learn. The images don’t seem to view very clearly on all screens sizes. But never fear, I am sharing each story page first so you can see them clearly.
So presenting the short rhyming story…The Cat In The Hat (my version).
Today I am looking back at an older Tuesday Tale of mine with some new thoughts and questions. If you have been following me for a while you may have read this post called “A Tender Moment Between A Man And His Dog.” It is about a beautiful relationship between a man (John) and his dog (Schoep). As Schoep got older and his arthritis kept him from sleeping, John would bring him to Lake Superior and hold him until he fell asleep in his arms in the water. That is John & Schoep pictured above. The picture alone speaks volumes!
This is such a beautiful story it is worth repeating. Check out the story on the Huffington Post here.
It’s Sunday! A time to kick back, relax, and reflect.
Many of you know about the loss of my sister. This has been a tough week, going to work, trying to act as if everything is fine. Our family has not had time for closure because we haven’t yet had the funeral. We plan to have it this week, maybe this will help a little.
I wrote a poem for today expressing some feelings I have been having through all of this and have heard other people express they felt when they lost a loved one. I hope you enjoy it.
THE WORLD DOESN’T STOP
The world is so busy
The world is so fast
Treating life like a race
How quickly time is passed
Then one day comes
When you receive a call
That one of your loved ones is gone
And now your heart takes a fall
So your race takes a pause
You put the brakes on the spinning top
You look around and wonder
Why doesn’t the rest of the world stop?Continue reading →
