Let’s Have Some Fun

I know some of you are starting the colder months but others of us are in the middle of a very hot summer. So I thought we could all use a couple of good old fashion belly laughs remembering a positive, wonderful day from our childhood. I feel my mom looking over my shoulder ask me, “So which one are you going to choose?”

My day to want to remember for today happened about 14 months after my dad crossed into the Summerlands and I had just become a teenager. My mom’s youngest sister and her family lived on her husbands family’s farm, they have 3 daughters. Also, there were my mom’s brother’s children, the oldest had 3 boys and a girl, my mom’s other sisters children who have 2 girls and 2 boys. So a great coming together of cousins. I should add in here that the only adults in the house all day to choral us children ranging from I think 7 to 13 years old were my mom and aunt. This particular day was the third in a row that it was raining and all 12 of us children were really bored, so the “grown-ups” pulled out some board games and since there were so many of us to play they decided we were going to play Go to The Head of the Class (anyone else remember this game?). They divided us into 2 teams of various ages and we proceeded to play the game like the more modern Trivia Pursuit because there were not enough makers for going around the broad for each of us to have one. In no time at all with Kool-Aid and cookies passed out, we started playing with my mom and aunt taking turns asking the questions from the cards. A question at the 3rd-grade level (which here in The States the child is approximately 9 years old) was “What tree only grows on the Southeast corner on the island of Aruba?

My challenge to you if you decide to pick up the gauntlet is without using an internet search (this was a day in 1971 when most schools or companies or governments did not have computers at all and if they had one it was more of an electric typewriter and calculator) tell me the name of the tree in the comments. I will post the answer tomorrow. Please also share fun and/or exciting childhood memory with us and leave us a challenge to go with it if you want to.

We know Water can be represented by a bowl of water, seashells, fishing lures, sea salt to name a few.

We know Earth can be represented by stones, wood, table salt plus a few other things.

We know Spirit can be represented by an angel statue or picture, but more importantly by what it can be represented by to you personally.

They appear much smaller when posted so I will tell you what each symbol is but not what the message is. Waxing crescent, full Moon, waning crescent, heart with starts, female and male members of The Craft. The second one I will only tell you the first two symbols. They are an angel and a blowing cloud.  Just a couple of short messages to see if there is an interest in having a bit of fun with the Emojis or not. Blessings, joy, and laughter should be in your life on a daily bases. To help this along find something every day to give you a hardy belly laugh. I usually get a least one a day from my 2 familiars, Cleopatra the Min Pin and Starbabie the Chihuahua. Love and hugs to all!! (A 20-second hug from someone you care about can lift your mood by at least 50%)
