You and Me


You and me and me and you

Have a love that’s oh so true

As we travel through the years

We’ll talk through all our fears

Together from the start

we hold each others hearts

With a love that’s meant to last

bad times never seem to pass

We stand together very strong

nothing can go wrong

It’s a love that’s meant to stay

in each and every way

Better than the best

we’ve passed every single test

Come and take my hand

together we will stand

Forever and a day we go

the way is clear to know …

Cheer Up the Lonely Day


This really caught my eye this month, what a lovely thought this day is! I think we all should try to aim for cheering up someone, it shouldn’t be that awfully hard to do. There are some lonely people out there and it’s such a heart warming thought to lift somebody’s spirits today.

Even if we aren’t sure which the lonely people are, how about just cheering up everybody we meet up with today? Just in case, that way everyone is covered and we will have been cheery and nice all day long! Don’t think it’s possible? Yes it is, of course it is but I truly try to do this at all times. So does Autumn, I think at times we are kind of different, in a good way that is. At least that’s what we’ve been hearing for quite a few years now.

I seriously once had a friend tell me I was so nice and sweet it made him sick, I’m not kidding either. Those were his exact words, too! Of course it was a nice compliment,  only after he chuckled and said it really was intended as a compliment for real. At first I was  slightly offended but you had to know the humor I guess because coming from someone else I would have been pretty upset.

Anyway, I’m fairly certain we can all make the best and most of cheering up the lonely, right? Autumn and I sure will be giving it our all and hoping it truly does make a difference for somebody. Any of you kind readers with us on this? Oh please do say yes, the more of us who give this day a whirl the better! Together we can make a difference and today it’s our aim to go out there and cheer up the lonely! :) :)

The Good Luck Charm


a short story~written by Autumn Sunshine

This is the story of a magical puppy named Charm, and her Mommy and Daddy. They lived in the land of Puppyville, in a very cute little house. It was just those three for now. Charm was a girl puppy and she was definitely one of a kind. Just wait till you hear all about her.

Charm

Her Mommy and Daddy named her Charm, it was a good choice since she was their “lucky Charm” and she was a girl puppy that did all sorts of things to bring happy times to others with her magic.

Charm was indeed blessed with magic from the day she was born. Her Mom and Dad were also magic, but Charm seemed to have been lucky and had heaps of good magic. She learned to point her right paw and close her eyes and One, Two, Three, Magic!!!! it was just super. If she pointed her left paw there was magic, just not so strong.

Magic to Spare

One day Charm was playing in the cool and sparkling little stream beside her house, her Mommy and Daddy were sitting under the tall pine tree talking to each other. Yes, they talked, they also could bark but talking was way more fun :)

On this day Charm was dancing through the stream and looked up. Oh my goodness, it was a baby bear, it must be lost. Charm shut her eyes and pointed her right paw. The baby bear smiled a big smile, there was her Mom!! She thanked Charm and off they went.
Wow, Charm was amazed at how big the Mommy bear was.

Charm frolicked off to join her parents. They both were smiling at her, they had seen her help the baby bear. Charm knew she did good, she’d learned quite young never, ever to leave her parents and wander off on her own. It was just being careful and being smart. After all, little puppies or any babies still had lots and lots to learn.

There were other times that Charm had done good things. Growing up in Puppyville she knew all the puppies that lived around. It was a magic sort of place and everyone was friends.

Charm’s Best Friend

Charm had her bestest friend ever, her friends name was the next door neighbor puppy named, Bear. He was all fluffy and brown, and he was her best friend ever. They were very close in age and had actually grown up together.

Bear was always around to scamper around and have good times with Charm. They played and played in the yards, since they lived side by side they saw each other every day. What fun they had and Charm taught Bear a bit of her magic :) He was doing good, he only had made a few small mistakes. He had once turned the grass in the yard pink by mistake, but Charm fixed it really fast.

Day by day Charm and Bear grew they were not quite a year old, but they were learning and learning lots of things. Their parents were proud of them, for they had done a few things that were kind of not too good, but they really were well-behaved.

Oooops

One warm summer day Charm and Bear were playing and Charm had a great idea. She thought it would be great fun to “fly” them up on a branch in the big pine tree in the yard. Hmmmm, she closed her eyes and held Bear’s left paw and pointed her right paw. Zoooooom, up they went, higher and higher and Charm got them stopped up very high on a big branch.

They both looked down at the ground very far away. Ooops indeed, they were way up almost to the top branches! They got the giggles, and they looked around. Oh no, they were in big trouble, their parents saw them.

Charm held on to Bear’s left paw and off they went, she zipped them up by mistake and then got them turned around … Yes! A soft landing on the ground. As their parents rushed to them and hugged them both, Charm and Bear just smiled. They knew another adventure was on the way, just around the corner all sorts of magic waited :)

National Hug Holiday


It’s a very good day today, if you like hugs that is…If not, I am sorry if you don’t because clearly it’s not the holiday for you at all. It’s National Hug Holiday on this day of June 11th and it could be a very fun day! :) You can go around hugging everyone you want to, within reason I mean. Don’t go getting all crazy hugging strangers and all please!

Another good reminder is not to go around hugging those people you just know are going to be cringing. It is sad, but some people do tend to react that way. So, we really must practice caution…We can’t have anyone freaking out and all. I bet there are some of you who just might see this as a holiday to go crazy, so do be careful and I mean it!

Even as tempting as it may be don’t approach strangers!  I’m kidding of course because nobody would be that silly, right? I mean, I certainly do hope not and do consider this your very kind and much-needed warning. Some people are really just not huggy people, I do know that and everybody is different so it’s OK. But, for all the rest of us it is a wonderful and fun day.

We can go around hugging friends, family and maybe spread some smiles and happiness with those hugs. Think of it as a nice gift to give out and it costs nothing, Yay! I have no idea what life would be like without hugs to share for me anyway. Autumn is the same way of course, we are among the group of huggy people. I believe with all my heart hugs are healthy and so wonderful to share, it lifts spirits and is a just happy thing.

I will literally be embracing this day, so will Autumn she says…So everyone of you kind readers considered yourselves hugged! :) See, even virtual hugs can be awesome! Happy National Hug Holiday to you all and do enjoy today! :) :)

National Smile Month


Isn’t this just the nicest news about the month of May? It’s National Smile Month and this is such a happy and cheerful thing to practice all month-long! Think of all the joy you can be spreading and making somebody’s day a little brighter. Even the most grumpy or kind of sad-looking people will hopefully respond to a smile. We can sure try it because it can’t hurt, right? It could end up doing a world of good, that would be just wonderful.

I know, I sure can get carried away with these type of things, but I can’t seem to help myself. I feel like I have been doing this my whole life, so has Autumn. It’s in our nature to greet people with a smile, and perhaps some people really don’t want to see a smile or anything of that nature.

There are some type of people wandering this earth who are just basically too unhappy or miserable and they like it that way. What a sad thing, but I know I will always give it a whirl, why not? Just go for it, what can they do to you except maybe ignore you or give a nasty look. Oops, I forgot the one time somebody said a few not exactly nice words to me, and that time the rude hand gesture, too. OK, so a few not so pleasant times… It can happen but I am so optimistic and its National Smile Month! I am just going for it, even more this month and I won’t be stopped by anyone! What a brave stand that sounds, but Autumn is with me on this smiling business. It’s good to know, I’m not alone on my quest.

Any of you kind readers going to join us Twinnies on our quest to make National Smile Month happen? Do let us know, together we can make a difference this month! :) :)

The Lilac Faery


Swirling magic she goes

making the flowers grow

The lilacs are the best

We should have guessed

she is tiny but strong

her spells can’t go wrong

she learned when she was so young

when her lessons had just begun

She learned fastest of all

even when she was very small!

and all the while

she spins with a smile

each flower is blessed

her magic has passed every test

so watch and you may see

this tiny faery, small as a bee …

A Faery Ring


The faeries gather in a ring

the birds start to sing

a happy tune

it’s just past noon

the meeting of the troop

they’re circled in a group

glad to have a meet

they smile as each one they greet

a lot to share

they all care

so very much

and now they must

talk and decide

and also confide

how the wish to grow

and they all know

their magic lives

and also gives

hope to humans around

and love must be found

to help all that wish to be

loved and free …

The Goal


I was left, and you were right

Our one last goal was just in sight

We tried and tried with all our might

working sometimes long into the night

We were tough and we were strong

we never veered off our path for very long

it was our dream, you know that means…

Our house in the mountains made of stone

The beauty was true and we built it alone

Just you and me

like it will always be

At one with nature, we are free

the love still grows

and we both know

Hello World, it’s Spring …


Spring is in the air

we can walk without a care

the weather is getting fair

Goodbye Winter, you’re gone

it’s time to mow the lawn

the snow is history

that’s no mystery

Everything is fresh and new

the morning dew

the world is renewed!

Sunshine so bright

we’re loving the light

hours of fun in the sun

and it’s just begun

such beauty with each new flower

the power

of Spring

Hello World, it’s time to sing …

The Twinnies and the Canoe Trip


I happened upon a picture of a canoe in a magazine I was reading. That’s all it took and my mind was going back to a wonderful and treasured memory. Autumn’s and my very first canoe trip when we were very young Twinnies. We must have been maybe about 7 years old and the trip was with our Dad and beloved Uncle Tony. It was such an anticipated trip and Autumn and I had been told a couple weeks in advance. Dad was probably sorry he shared the happy upcoming event too early, we about drove him crazy with questions! When was the day we were going? He patiently pointed out the day on the calendar and marked it with a big red star for us, too.

Still, Autumn and I had other questions, did anyone doubt it? Needless to say, when the big day arrived the pair of us were just literally jumping for joy! Yay, off we went to pick up Uncle Tony and on our way to our much loved Pine Creek for our canoe ride! It was maybe a half hour drive from our house, enough of a car ride to have both of us Twinnies being overly chatty.

I know, that sure never changed kind readers…Autumn and I always have plenty to say it seems. We also loved singing with our Dad, so we had a song or two with Uncle Tony joining in also. Autumn and I only bugged them a couple times about when we would get there, how much longer? Anyway, we arrived at where the canoe was docked and got on our life jackets with Dad’s and Uncle Tony’s help of course.

We Twinnies got another going over about water safety, we were taught quite early about it all. But Dad went over it all one more time, just to be safe and sound he explained. Wow, the sights and sounds when floating along on the water! The water so clear, you could see all the underwater treasures! The birds singing happily, those beautiful and awesome mountains surrounding us. Autumn and I were being well behaved for us, we only got a warning about trailing our hands in the water.

Oh yeah, we had made up a song about the water, the canoe and after singing the same couple verses for too long…Well, Dad asked us nicely to give it a rest. The canoe trip was truly such a magical experience and so wonderous to us Twinnies we weren’t going to do anything dumb to mess it up for ourselves! We might have our moments, but we were no fools! The ride ended much too soon for Autumn and me of course because we would happily have ridden for hours. It was a magic day, one that sticks in my mind as so special and happy. Dad and Uncle Tony are both in Heaven now, so the memories are a joy to have.

Do any of you kind readers have any memories of an adventure like this one? If you would like to share, it would be great hearing all about it! :) PS The only small mishap of this perfect day was after docking the canoe Autumn and I got our socks and sneakers wet stepping into the very shallow water. Never fear, our Mom had packed extras! ;) :)
