You Can Do version

I read this post, by Beth, a while back: You Can Do It...

And I started my own list. Then it just sat on my desktop. Up in the corner. Staring at me.

The idea was that I would add to it as my "Rhoda-isms" struck me.

Well. They have been really quiet lately.

Here's what I have:

  • Do something nice, just because you can, not because you should. "The good you do today will often be forgotten. Do good anyway."
  • If it is worth doing, it is worth doing to the best of your ability. 
  • Besides "always kissing me goodnight" please be sure to continue touching when you roll over to fall asleep.
  • Cherish the little things, they add up to be the big things.
  • An instant can change your life.
  • Don't strive for perfection. Strive to be the best "you" possible!
  • You can't always get what you want, and that's probably for the best.
  • Spend time doing what you enjoy. Not because you think you should, but because you truly want to.
  • Create beautiful things, because you can.
  • Breathe, and know, that this too shall pass.

There are many more, I'm sure. But they are the type of deep thoughts that strike while I am driving. My "ah-ha" moment...and then it's gone when I park the car. No chance to write it down or make note of it.

Happy Sunday!


A Hug or A Gift


This morning's little freebie is a sweet hedgehog. I was originally going to put a gift in his hands...but then decided to leave that up to you.

Is he giving a hug?

A gift?

I don't know...that all depends on how you decide to incorporate him into your project:

100 Things...


It's been awhile. We have been busy.

The good part of busy was we were spending a lot of family time together.

Time watching movies.
Time going for walks.
Time just being silly.

School. We have been super busy with school as well. A few weeks ago I gave my english class a lesson that was both writing and some creative art. I had them write a fancy title and then fill in the paper with images and words, listing 100 things they love.

I'm sharing my title with you...and then you get to be creative and find a way to color it and list your 100 things:

I've made a 100 things list a few times. It's fun to see the way it changes, or the the things you love the most each time you list them. There are way more than 100 things that I could list...but it's a nice start :)

Happy December!
