First of all , my dear friend Sherry , nominated me for this award yesterday !!
It was such an honour to receive this , and it`s made even more special , coming to me from her . Yet again , she`s thinking of others , when she was not having a good day herself , a low blue day . I hope your blues have lifted today ! (( Muah ))
And i would like to pass this award to RHONDA ! A new friend of mine , who keeps me laughing . You deserve it !! :o)
I had to go out today , although i did not feel like it . The wind is terrible here , so much so , i now have bad ear ache just subsiding , and it took me twice as long to get home battling the head on wind !
I did however buy a few things along my way around the town . A new magazine , a few library books , and yet more books , old children`s ones . Do i need anymore books ! ?
I bought Thumbelina , ...... remember her anyone ??
The tiniest little girl , half the size of your thumb , and she was " given " to a lady who wanted a child so badly . Her bed was a walnut shell with rose petals for her mattress .
Inside was a poem , i read it , and thought , what if i were that small ? What would i see ? What could i do just for a day , if i were her ?
If you were Thumbelina -
Just think of all you`d see ....
The rainbow in a dew-drop ,
The soft fur on a bee .
The sparkle of a spiders web
Hung with beads of rain .
The warm smile of a buttercup
When the sun comes out again .
Whiskers on a centipede !
A leaf which rustles by ..
The soft shine on a daisy
Looking upwards to the sky .
But - a crumb would be your breakfast -
The same for lunch and tea !
And an apple pip for supper -
Or a grain of corn maybe .
And then , a mouse , a frog or bird
Might come and tread on you !
So - think of Thumbelina
And all that YOU can do !
