With so much “time” on our hands one would think we could accomplish the impossible, right?
How do we spend our time? So many hours in our day spent worrying or busy with “busy” work. You know how that goes, we get up with the best intentions and then before we know it the day is over, the sundown, and it times to go to bed. Let’s think about time this week and make it special.
With a whole extra day, I challenge you to think about the things you enjoy in life. For me, it’s reading. A good book, a comfortable chair, and off I go to the far places of adventure and travel, or perhaps it is history that has caught my attention this week or poems. I rarely take the time and this week I shall reconsider how I spend every minute, of every day.
When I look at this image I am reminded of my grandchildren. Oh, they are too old for me to snuggle up and read a favorite story, but I am comforted in knowing that occasionally they too will curl up and read something! Well, as I am reminded every now and then, they do read, you know, things on their phones, articles, stories, blogs, even an occasional magazine.
Frogs are magical, time-traveling creatures. As they leap around us they travel through time reminding us to move toward what we desire in life. The symbolism of the frog appears in many traditions around the globe. It is generally associated with a transition which is why we see frogs in Leap years.
The frog is symbolic of:
- Renewal, rebirth
- Fertility, abundance
- Transformation, metamorphosis
- Life mysteries and ancient wisdom
Celebrate a 223rd Birthday with Limited Edition History Cards
The History of Waynesville. One of the most fun projects I worked on last year was the collection of old photographs for the birthday of Waynesville. I went to the library and worked with the historian and to the Museum at the Friends Home and worked with several docents. Looked at pages and pages of images of this small town that blossomed through time, living moments of history.
We made the first series of cards and they were so well received by our visitors to town during our 222 Birthday Bash in 2019. Then we found so many new images!
Selling these cards is a labor of love! The total price is donated to the Waynesville Merchants Association so that we can continue to provide events that are fun for everyone. Come and check them out!
