Every day

I saw an interesting meme at One Thing, who got it from Ann Kroeker. The task is to paraphrase the following quote to personalize it for yourself. Here’s the original:

“One ought, every day at least, to hear a little song, read a good poem, see a fine picture, and if it were possible, to speak a few reasonable words.”

And here’s the Owlhaven remake:

“One ought, every day at least, to hug every loved one in reach, sing one praise song at the top of your lungs, eat one square of really good chocolate, and if it is possible, bring a smile to the face of someone who needs it.”

Let me know if you decide to try this too. I thought it was fun!

  3. I like it! Great job making it all your own :o)

  4. One ought, every day at least, to have moment to relax and drink something sweet and hot, take a fine picture, and if it were possible, to speak a few extremely profound and motivational words…Oh yes, and the chocolate–can’t forget the chocolate!!
    I came to visit you at the suggestion of a fellow adoptive parent. We are adopting three from the country of Ukraine to add to our three bio-kiddos. Woohoo!

  5. Just wondering if you had heard whether anyone was doing the “30 Days of Nothing” this year. My family did it last September/October (we got a late start) and are starting agin this Sept. 1st. We got a lot out of the experience and hope to lean even more this year.
