Me in the Middle of Lessons Learned ~ Letter H (Reblog)

My theme ~ Lessons Learned.  I’ll be posting a word that begins with each letter of the alphabet that fits my theme.   This blog/website has become one way to share about myself to my children, my grandchildren and my extended family who are scattered all over the country and the world.  Hopefully, anyone who reads this will be in some way blessed by my throwing my words out onto the World Wide Web and into the Universe.  

 My About Page gives me the focus so that, as I age, I don’t forget what I worked so hard to learn.  It’s going to be fun and challenging!   I hope you’ll stick with me as I strive to meet my goal!!

Does anyone remember the Happiness movement inspired by the Peanuts musical ~ “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown” ?………………”Happiness is……….a warm puppy.”  It was such a great way to find things to be happy about.  Gratitude and Happiness are co-joined twins.  You can’t have one without the other.

Charlie Brown: Happiness is, finding a pencil
Snoopy: Pizza with sausage
Linus: Telling the time
Schroeder: Happiness is, learning to whistle
Linus: Tying your shoe for the very first time!
Patty/Sally : Happiness is playing the drums in your own, school band
Charlie Brown: And happiness, is walking hand in hand.
Charlie Brown: Happiness is, two kinds of ice cream
Lucy: Knowing a secret

Schroeder: Climbing a tree
Charlie Brown: Happiness is, five different crayons
Schroeder: Catching a firefly
Linus: Setting him free
Charlie Brown: Happiness, is being alone every now, and then
Everybody: And happiness, is coming home again.
Charlie Brown: Happiness is, morning and evening, daytime and nightime too. For happiness, is anyone, and anything, at all, that’s loved, by you!
Linus: Happiness, is having a sister
Lucy: Sharing a sandwich
Lucy and Linus: Getting along!
Everybody: Happiness, is singing together when day, is through, and happiness is those who sing with you.
Everybody: Happiness is morning and evening, daytime and nightime too.
Charlie Brown: For happiness, is anyone, and anything, at all, that’s loved, by you!
Lucy: (spoken) You’re a good man, Charlie Brown.

When things are bad, remember:
It won’t always be this way.
Take One Day at a Time.

When things are good, remember:
It won’t always be this way.
Enjoy every great moment.

When I speak of Faith in this post, I’m thinking more of a that inner conviction that life is good and, no matter what we face, we’ve got what it takes to make it through.  Each person’s individual belief in how to come to this inner conviction is unique to them.  I respect whatever religion or way of life that helps a person move along their path to  find this place of Faith, Hope and Love.  We’re all so much alike when it comes to these strivings.

Me in the Middle of A to Z Theme Reveal 2016 (#FlashBack)

        
It’s FlashBack Friday ~ A time of the month where you can republish an old post of yours that maybe didn’t get enough attention, or that you’re really proud of, or you think is still relevant etc.  This Blog-Go-Round is hosted by Jemima Pett and originally introduced by Michael D’Agostino from A LIFE EXAMINED.  That’s where you’ll find the rest of the participants or to join up yourself.

The post I’ve chosen for this month first appeared on ME IN THE MIDDLE on March 21, 2016.  Last April was a month of non-stop blogging and commenting even though I had pre-scheduled most of my alphabet posts.  I was seeing  alphabet letters in my sleep and would wake up early in the morning to make sure my day’s post was delivered as scheduled.  The many blogger friends that I’d meet each morning became my little blogging community as we encouraged each other and praised each other for the amazing ideas picked for themes.  This year I really will miss this part of the Challenge.  I’ll still be visiting A to Z Bloggers and hoping that I’ll continue to make new friends.  

All 26 posts for the A to Z Blog Challenge, along with the comments, can be seen by clicking HERE ~ or by clicking on the Title below.

My Life Is My Masterpiece ~ Lessons Learned

My theme for the A to Z Blog Challenge @AprilA2Z during the month of April is ~ My Life Is My Masterpiece ~ Lessons Learned.  For each of the 26 Days (with Sundays off) I’ll be posting a word that begins with each letter of the alphabet that fits my theme.   This blog/website has become one way to share about myself to my children, my grandchildren and my extended family who are scattered all over the country and the world.  Hopefully, anyone who reads this will be in some way blessed by my throwing my words out onto the World Wide Web and into the Universe.  

 My About Page gives me the focus so that, as I age, I don’t forget what I worked so hard to learn.  It’s going to be fun and challenging!   I hope you’ll stick with me as I strive to meet my goal!!
