The Things I Love

I was reading a friends blog today,
and she was talking about another blog she
follows and how this blogger was trying to get
from other bloggers a list of 200 things that we
all love. What an awesome way to get everyone


So that is what my blog will be about today,

what I love.

I love my kids, Amber who is 28 and Cory who is 21.
I love my two grandson’s, Caleb-8 years old and

DJ, AKA Peanut who is 4 months old. This is a given
to love your kids I would think.

I love my brothers Ray and Mark. Both have been

there for me many times. Both so different in many
ways from each other and totally different then
I am. I love their families, their wives and their
kids. Which gives me three
nephews and 3 nieces.

I love my Mom, who also has been there many,

many times for me. She is also the reason I am
an artist today. Almost nine years ago she
saw some of my sketches and felt I needed
to get into painting. She located a my teacher

and to this day I have produced 82 paintings.

And my dog, Dakota.

Okay, so maybe it is not a given to love your

family but I do. Yes, we have all had our own
issues with each other, but,
I do love them…

Now for the things I love:
I love the movie the Wizard of Oz. It’s a part of

my childhood that I always looked forward to once
a year. It is on a magical place where all your dreams
can come true. A place to forget your stress,
your worries and live in Dorothy’s fantasy world

for a while. I love hot air balloons and clowns…
okay, so I see a pattern here, colorful, child like things!
I love to watch snow fall, the laughter of
a child, the smell of oranges, the cool of a spring

night, a walk in the summer rain, riding in the spring
and fall with the windows down and the breeze blowing
in my face and hair and spending time with
my friends.

These are my favorite, I love things!
Thanks for stopping by.

Thanks for joining in! I know I felt better after I starting thinking about all the "good stuff"; I need to do that more often. i bet I could make a list of 200 all on my own....

Child-like things?...But my friend...those are the best...never ~ NEVER forget your inner-child... read on and enjoy:

A child's world is fresh and new and beautiful, full of wonder and excitement. It is our misfortune that for most of us that clear-eyed vision, that true instinct for what is beautiful and awe-inspiring, is dimmed and even lost before we reach adulthood. ~Rachel Carson

Maybe we should develop a Crayola bomb as our next secret weapon. A happiness weapon. A beauty bomb. And every time a crisis developed, we would launch one. It would explode high in the air - explode softly - and send thousands, millions, of little parachutes into the air. Floating down to earth - boxes of Crayolas. And we wouldn't go cheap, either - not little boxes of eight. Boxes of sixty-four, with the sharpener built right in. With silver and gold and copper, magenta and peach and lime, amber and umber and all the rest. And people would smile and get a little funny look on their faces and cover the world with imagination. ~Robert Fulghum

One of the virtues of being very young is that you don't let the facts get in the way of your imagination. ~Sam Levenson

The great man is he who does not lose his child's-heart. ~Mencius, Book IV

These individuals express it sooo with that said... keep exploring your inner-child and set those thoughts; feelings; memories free as a bird takes to flight... as they make you the wonderful, loving, care-free...full of laughter and joyful intelligent individual that you are today. Hang on to cheer everyone around you...and I'm happy to have met you! Nancy M.; Ohio
