Thoughts…I Have Many

Yes I certainly do, I will never be accused of not thinking enough that’s for sure. I know everybody has thoughts, I just seem to have an overabundance. Well, how do I know that is a true fact? There’s not some thought- a- meter that can check you out for that kind of thing. You know what I’m saying kind readers, right?

Anyway, my thoughts…One certain one stuck in my mind earlier. I was thinking of daylight savings time starting here in the United States, it’s on March 11th. I was going over all the clocks and watches I have to change so they can “Spring Ahead” an hour. Setting each and every watch and clock ahead an hour. For an ordinary person, it may just take a short while…Not for me I’m afraid.

In the fall when we did the “Fall Back” thing, setting them back an hour I wrote a post about this. Also telling of my many clocks and watches, which over the years spells out I have a lot of both. I won’t get into all that here, but I kept thinking about the chore of doing it all over again. There’s no escaping the chore, but I was thinking that maybe there was a short cut of sorts to doing this time consuming task. I pondered and I wondered about it…Notice I did not say obsessed! 😉 There is no shortcut, there just isn’t!

I was actually considering maybe giving some of the clocks away, I had to banish that thought very quickly! That’s just not going to happen…Many of the clocks have sentimental meaning. The majority of the clocks and watches, too have memories of Dave attached to them. I thought about that and took my stroll down memory lane. My husband left this earth way too soon, evil cancer and I won’t got into it all many of you kind readers already know. Giving clocks away, not an option…Banish that thought forever is right!!

I just thought about it all realisticaly, I would be cheerful and make it a fun happening, Yay! I will do just that. sometimes thinking does pay off, doesn’t it? I am thinking I may just have a small group of family and friends over to make a party out of it all, it’s a nice thought isn’t it? Well, it was until I told Autumn. That Twinnie laughed herself silly for just way too long! 😉 OK, maybe it was a wacky thought and I have a feeling she just may be right, maybe. Autumn pointed out a very kind fact…Did I really want to draw attention to all my clocks and watches to the family and friends again? Is that ever true, they all do tend to worry about the clock/watch collection. Why have them all over to my house? Each and every room looked at with all the clocks, just not the best idea. Hmm…Autumn has a good point, I think I will celebrate the clock setting ritual all by myself. It’s my final thought on the whole matter…I think.   P.S. Was anyone paying attention to each and every time I said thoughts and thinking? *Counting the last 2 and also the one in the title, it was 17…That’s a lot of thoughts and thinking I do believe! 😉 🙂


The backwards Pixie

She sometimes

seems to stray

and will lose her way

backwards flying


not to giggle a lot

she knows she ought

to stay on track

wings forward, not back

on she goes

her magic shows

she’s harmless as can be

goodness she about flew into that tree!

Falling in to dandelion fluff

a landing not too rough

everyone gives her a helping hand

when she lands

then off she flies

and again tries

to get it right

oops left not right

well, she will be just fine

the pixies form a line

and backwards they all go

she smiles, she knows

that they really do care …

Your Angel on Earth by Gabby

First I have to say, *I did not write this! It’s something that is beautiful to share though and it needs shared. How did this story come to be in my possession? That’s a very nice story in itself, about 15 or so years ago…Our Dad found it and made copies for all of us 6 daughters. I think that was such a beautiful thought and a loving thing to do, a living tribute to our Mom. That’s the way Dad was…He loved our Mom very much. Even though we honored and loved Mom, Dad wanted us all to have this special reminder. Since our Dad is in Heaven now, all I keep thinking is how proud he is of us 6 daughters. We all look after our Mom when she lets us, (She can be a bit stubborn) we all love her to pieces. It isn’t always easy for her and I despise evil cancer for taking our Dad away. Dad and Mom were joined at the soul, a feeling I understand all too well. One of the saddest things Mom said to me 8 years ago, after we lost both Dad and Dave (my husband). Mom said never did she ever think her and I would end up widows, losing them both to the same evil cancer & 40 days apart. I digressed a bit, but I wanted to get it all said. So, here  is the beautiful story  now to share with all of you kind readers. Some of you maybe already have read this story. To us it was magic because “La Famiglia e tutto”, that’s in Italian, in English it means “Family is Everything”. So please do enjoy this story and let Autumn and I know your thoughts if you would like to share. 🙂 The title is of course “Your Angel on Earth“. The author is unknown.

A child preparing to be born asked God, “They tell me you are sending me to earth tomorrow, but how am I going to live there being so small and helpless?” God answered, “Among the many angels, I chose one for you. She will be waiting for you and will take care of you.”
The child paused and again addressed God, “But tell me, here in Heaven, I don’t do anything else but sing and smile, that’s enough for me to be happy.” Your angel will sing to you and also smile for you everyday, and you will feel your angel’s love and be happy.” “Oh,” the child said “and how am I going to be able to understand when people talk to me if I don’t understand the language that men speak?” And then glancing at God the child asked, “What am I going to do when I want to talk to you?” God softly touched the child on the head and said, “Your angel will place your hands together and will teach you how to pray.” The child then asked.”I have heard that on earth there is evil. Who will protect me?” “Ah,” God answered, “your angel will defend you even if it means risking her own life.”

The child said to God, “But I will always be sad because I will not see you anymore.” “Your angel will always talk to you about me and will teach you the way for you to come back to me, even though I will always be next to you,” God explained. At that moment there was much peace in Heaven, but voices from earth could already be heard, and the child in a hurry asked softly, “God, if I am about to leave now, please tell me my angel’s name.” Sweetly God looked at the child and whispered, Your angel’s name is of no importance. You will simply call her MOM.”

Love Street ?

We’re walking down our street

Darling man says I’m so sweet

I take his hand and twirl around

He laughs, that lovely sound

What a silly pair

We’re off without a care

Love street is our home base

Smiles upon our face

We love and live

that’s what we give

so laughing on the way

every single day

We love to sing

and bring

while we ring

in a new tomorrow …

Magic in the skies

Magic for sure in the skies

looking above so very high

Traces and faces

and spaces

to see

are those laces ?

sparkling so bright

far into the night

all sorts of lights

magic in the skies

magic in your eyes

what a happy surprise

stars and things

and some odd rings

decorate the sky

what all goes by?

you’ll be amazed to find out

just look all about

and wait to learn

how the planet does turn

and the magic, you’ll learn …

Tell a FairyTale Day is Here!

Yay! It’s finally here, I was so excited to find this day and it’s here at last! 🙂 What a wonderful and fun day, not marked on the calendar of course. I think it most certainly should be though, who is with me? Tell a Fairytale Day is one we all can have some joy in telling fairy tales to the young ones in our circle. It’s a day that should be celebrated with a smile I do think. It brings up so many questions, too.

Only a few questions kind readers, I will try to control myself. 😉  What is your favorite fairytale of all time? What heroine or hero is your all time fave? What fairytale could you hear numerous times and never get tired of? Anyone of you kind readers wish to share? Which one is your least favorite? I know I hope it isn’t true…But do any of you kind readers have one? It is far-fetched but it could happen…Perhaps a bad vibe childhood memory of a certain fairytale? I tried to think of any, but I truly do just love them all and so does Autumn.

You know how that Twinnie is with magic and fairytales…She would speak right up if she had a least  fave. I will share with you all us Twinnies favorites and then you kind readers maybe would like to share yours? I hope so, sharing is so much fun I say and I am always for it! 🙂

I know my total favorite fairytale is Cinderella, because of the glass slipper, the prince and the lovely song. I know there are others I just totally love, but Cinderella tops my list.

As for Autumn, her favorite is Cinderella and she loves Beauty and the Beast, too. That is a nice song, too but of course we have to go on more than songs, don’t we?  We both love it, also Snow White, Sleeping Beauty and too many others to name! I am just overjoyed it really is Tell a Fairytale Day, it just makes me smile and the Twinnie is also smiling! 🙂 🙂 <–See, twin smiles!

Now, it’s your turn kind readers! 🙂 Who wants to share their favorites? It’s OK to  even tell a not so favorite, honest. Sharing really is a lot of fun, too I  say! As always…Inquiring Twinnies would love to hear your opinions and thoughts! 🙂 🙂

In the land of Fae …

In the land of fae, there’s music in the air

bouncing beams of magic, without a single care

bell ring

and everyone sings

the fairies, elves, and pixies begin

the nymphs and angels join in

the unicorns frolic to and fro

a angel peaks out with a bit of a glow

Ohh what a show

she joins in the dance

What a chance

the fairies join hands

as do all in the land

The magic so strong

nothing is wrong

the land of love so fine

the pixies giggle in line

they dance round

What a place filled with happy sounds …

How It All Began…

Once upon a time…Oops, this isn’t a fairytale! I do have to interrupt myself since you all may be wondering just what I am talking about anyway. We all know I tend to digress easily and often. So back to the title…How What All Began? I know this is a kind of belated one to be writing about. But, once again it needs telling, in Autumn’s and my humble opinions anyway…How TF <3=Twins Forever began! Autumn and I are so used to using that expression and also the TF <3, we never question why we do it. By the way, it’s kind of our logo for our blog, too as you can see here. Twins Forever and the picture of those cute little twins. Autumn found that picture and it was just too adorable to pass up, we needed it! It’s something we would have done as very young Twinnies. Hands raised proudly and happily proclaiming…Yes, also loudly, proudly and happily Twins Forever! 🙂 Well, until somebody told us to give it a rest already! 😉

We just do the TF <3…It is a special Twinnie thing, I encourage all twins out there to give it a whirl! It’s easy, just do TF <3= Twins Forever! 🙂 You may find yourself liking it and getting a smile every time you sign things that way! 🙂 Our one and only Twin friend in the blogging world is Sherline. You can find her easily at Sherline’s Whatchu Thinkin’ Blog and also Ramblings of a Creative Mind. Please do check out her blogs, she has lots to offer for some very good reading! Now, Sherline has a twin Sharon and no, sorry those twins don’t blog together…Not yet anyway! 😉 Come on you Twinnies do think about it! I sure hope you didn’t mind having the spotlight on you Sherline, but we needed to give you a special mention and a shout out! 🙂

Anyway…Back to how it all began, well ever since we could talk Autumn and I started saying Twins Forever. We loved sharing the news with everybody, I kid you not. We just so overjoyed to tell anyone and everyone who would listen to us. Be it  family, friends and sometimes innocent strangers, passers-by. Well you get the idea, we just were a tiny bit precocious and we just couldn’t help ourselves. 😉 We always called each other Twinnie (and still do), no coaching on anyone’s part. Guess we liked having our own little personal terms of endearment for each other from the start. When we started writing little notes to each other we would do a TF and a little heart and it just kept on, no matter how old we got to be. As you can clearly see, it has never stopped and it never will either, it just is! 🙂 Our parents loved it and got a chuckle out it from the beginning, so we were blessed that way. They didn’t try to stop us, thank goodness for Dad and Mom. Anyway there you have it, TF <3=Twins Forever has now been explained! Hope you enjoyed this one kind readers. 🙂 🙂

Music …

Hum a tune

the words appear soon

The music soars, loud and clear

chasing away sorrow or fear

music heals

music feels

like magic at it’s best

just rest

and relax and go with the flow

you’ll know

each melodic note will show

let go and feel, you’ll smile …

tap your feet

don’t miss a beat

all the defeat

will trickle away

you will stay

peaceful and calm

don’t be alarmed

Music is magic …
