Together Forever

Family Comes Together
by Glaedr

Family comes together
For always and forever
In sickness and in health
In poverty or in wealth
Family comes together
For always and forever
Without any reason
Anytime or any season
Family comes together
For always and forever
In death or in life
In happiness or in strife
Family comes together
For always and forever
In anger or in kindness
Whether all seeing or in blindness
Family comes together
For always and forever
Whether for work or for play
They somehow find a way
For family to come together
Because families are forever

A Precious Gift

The most precious gift we can offer anyone is our attention. When mindfulness embraces those we love, they will bloom like flowers.

-Thich Nhat Hanh

Sink or Swim

Welcome to the first edition of Wisdom Wednesday. I love weird, random trivia. Little bits of knowledge intrigue me. So inspired by my love of wacky trivia I have decided to start Wisdom Wednesday.

I was playing Lego Indiana Jones the other day and my character hopped onto a camel. The problem was I needed to get to an Island. I figured I would have to swim but I wanted to see how far I could get in the water with the camel. Imagine my surprise when the camel swam the whole way. It was amazing! Then I figured it was just a game, real camels might not actually swim. I needed to investigate further.

I ended up finding an article from The Times of India that stated there was a breed of camels that could swim. Awesome!

First Thing

“When you wake up in the morning, Pooh,” said Piglet at last, “what’s the first thing you say to yourself?”

“What’s for breakfast?” said Pooh. “What do you say, Piglet?”

“I say, I wonder what’s going to happen exciting today?” said Piglet.

Pooh nodded thoughtfully.

“It’s the same thing.” he said.
