Isn't it Wiggy?

I just love made up words! But then again, isn't EVERY word a made up word? Sark is an artist extraordinaire and a unique individual. She comes up with some very wiggy words. (smile)

What does wiggy mean? I don't know. What do you think it means? It's a happy word, though. Of this, I feel certain. tee hee!

I've named this cute gal Zinnia. Her hair is tousled like a zinnia going in a lot of different directions. Her clothing is subdued, but then she pops out with something like, "Isn't it wiggy?" Zinnia makes me smile. I hope she makes you smile, too.

Blind People Don't Like to Skydive

If you first see this, you may think it a bit irreverent until you learn the joke was told by a blind person.

“Blind People Don’t Like to Skydive”

I heard Jody Urquhart at a conference on laughter

in the workplace. She shared this saying with a

deadpan expression and there wasn’t a dry eye in

the house! Everyone laughed!! She went on to say that a blind friend

of hers had shared this joke. If we can’t laugh

at ourselves, we’ve lost the game of life.

I love the sayings our daughters come up with. Our daughter Caroline often talks about friends she knows and loves, then says, "What a lamb." I love that! I love that she is so affirming of her friends and others. It's because of Sweet Caroline that I painted this lovely Lamb.

I aspire to be a lamb. Willingly following my good shepherd - - you know the one who laid his life down for his sheep? He's worth following.

Oops! I just noticed Lambie is a little crooked in her frame. Ah well, what a lamb!

I am a sheep and he is the shepherd,
