Laugh it off!

Sunday, November 28, 2010



My baby girl asked me for a favor.

She even offered to pay me but her request intrigued me and I would feel uncomfortable to take money from my child who is struggling as hard or harder to make ends meet than I am and (coincidentally) is raising five of my grandchildren.

What is the favor?

She thought it would be helpful to have inspiring things written in calligraphy and hanging at strategic points in her home. She knows I love to do calligraphy and also love to inspire. She had me hooked at the mere mention of this project. I ran right out to buy card stock and pens. Have you any suggestions? This is the first poem I thought was clever. I found it in Inspiring Thoughts for Mothers available from Church Resource Distributors. If interested, I have their telephone number. :-) The butterflies are free and they also have down-loadable coloring pages.

Are you worsted in a fight?
Are you cheated of your right?
Laugh it off!
Don't make tragedies of trifles,
Don't shoot butterflies with rifles,
Laugh it off!
Does your work get into kinks?
Are you near all kinds of brinks?
If it's sanity your after,
There's no recipe like laughter.
Laugh it off!

They joy of the Lord is your strength. Nehemiah 8:10


Spiritual Musing Sunday. Take care and God bless!

This sounds like a wonderful idea and I really like your first choice of poems. One of my favorite poems is by Edgar Guest, It Couldn't be Done. It's on my sidebar on Squirrel Eyes.

I love the butterflies, Judy. But I think they're making your blog take a long time to load.
How wonderful of your daughter to appreciate your talents. She must really value them to ask you to do such a favour.
All the best and lots of love. Hope you're keeping warm.
