The Gift of Life

The Gift of Life

“Big results require big ambitions.

Aim high. Behave honorably. Prepare to be alone

at times, and to endure failure. Persist!

To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.

-ALFRED LORD TENNYSON

Hello Dear Friends!

I have been on moving hiatus for the last month. Being settled is such a settling feeling. Mostly living and being free to live in my home is so amazing. These are the small things which lead us to the big things in our lives which make it all worthwhile. : ) I am sure you feel the same, to have a home I am ever so grateful for.

I am re reading a powerful book, this might be my fourth read. Each time my eyes are opened to a new perspective. I would like to share with you today the chapter I am reading on our attitude and how it can be our gift to ourselves, our surroundings and mostly the world we live in.

“Nature gave a wonderful gift to most of her little creatures-a gift we call “protective coloring”-so that the deer blends into the forest, the fish into the stream, and the bird into the trees. But from one notable creature was this gift withheld. The human creature stands out like a sore thumb on any sort of terrain.

I believe this is because the human was given a much greater gift: You and I have the  godlike power to make our surroundings change to fit us.”

-Bob Proctor “The ABC’s of SUCCESS”

This chapter goes on speaking of our environment being a direct reflection of us as people. How we as people can change for the better and directly our environment will make these same changes. Well fancy that. This is a wise man.

I wish you a safe, warm, cozy home, you feel free to be yourself so you can be the best you. Until next time friends!

Little Red Riding Hood

Hello friends and Happy Thanksgiving to all! We all should give thanks for our amazing lives, let us take the time today to write down ten things we are grateful for.

With that said my grateful friends I am  putting myself out there again and I  am entering an illustration contest surrounding The Grimm Brothers version of LITTLE RED RIDING HOOD. Here is the excerpt for the contest.

Once upon a time there was a little girl who was so sweet and kind that everyone loved her. Her grandmother, who loved her more than anyone, gave her a little cap made of red velvet, which suited her so well that she wanted to wear it all the time. Because of that everyone took to calling her Little Red Riding Hood.

One day her mother said to her: ‘Little Red Riding Hood, I’ve got a job for you. Your grandmother isn’t very well, and I want you to take her this cake and a bottle of wine. They’ll make her feel a lot better. You be polite when you go into her house, and give her a kiss from me. Be careful on the way there, and don’t step off the path or you might trip over and break the bottle and drop the cake, and then there’d be nothing for her. When you go into her parlour don’t forget to say, “Good morning, Granny,” and don’t go peering in all the corners.’

‘I’ll do everything right, don’t worry,’ said Little Red Riding Hood, and kissed her mother goodbye.

Her grandmother lived in the woods, about half an hour’s walk away. When Little Red Riding Hood had only been walking a few minutes, a wolf came up to her. She didn’t know what a wicked animal he was, so she wasn’t afraid of him.

I hope you enjoy my version of Little Red Riding Hood, I recreated her and the wicked wolf. I put a lot of love and thought into this, wish me luck! Happy Thanksgiving to all! Until next time friends!
