“It is good to be children sometimes, and never better than at Christmas.” ~ Charles Dickens

Fa la la and doodleedoodleedoo.

Throw in a few jingle bells and merry merrys.

Was just re-digging A Hole is to Dig. Good things to remember no matter how tired, busy, grumpy, bumpy or wrinkly you get:

Dogs are for kissing people.

Hats are to wear on trains.

Mashed potatoes are to give everybody enough.

Tap into your essential child and you will always find the truth.

Earliest known Christmas photo of me. What I really wanted was a wooden spoon.

"Crackers, Yeoman 2nd Class," by Denise Dewire (German distressed mohair, blue chambray sailor suit, tea-stained cap, 1988).

As a kid I had a dream – I wanted to own my own bicycle. When I got the bike I must have been the happiest boy in Liverpool, maybe the world. I lived for that bike. Most kids left their bike in the backyard at night. Not me. I insisted on taking mine indoors and the first night I even kept it in my bed. ~ John Lennon

♥ Today’s Sunday Bear Hug is brought to you by Mr. Cornelius, whose favorite Lennon song is “Imagine.” He also thinks you’d make a mighty fine Honey Pie. Rattle your jewelry, clink your teacups and have a smashing day!

Why I Wake Early
by Mary Oliver
 
Hello, sun in my face.
Hello, you who made the morning
and spread it over the fields
and into the faces of the tulips
and the nodding morning glories,
and into the windows of, even, the
miserable and the crotchety –
best preacher that ever was,
dear star, that just happens
to be where you are in the universe
to keep us from ever-darkness,
to ease us with warm touching,
to hold us in the great hands of light –
good morning, good morning, good morning.
Watch, now, how I start the day.
♥ This week’s Sunday Bear Hug is brought to you by Mr. Cornelius, who wishes you the brightest and most glorious of mornings, hoping you’ll carry this light with you throughout the week.

"Becky" by Hillary Hulen (yellow distressed mohair, antique embroidered bib, 1989)

In the sweetness of friendship let there be laughter and sharing of pleasures. For in the dew of little things the heart finds its morning and is refreshed. 

(Khalil Gibran)

♥ Your Sunday Bear Hug is brought to you by Mr. Cornelius, who would be happy to wish you a very Good Morning, but he’s not up yet. Pass the cinnamon rolls and talk amongst yourselves.

"Colonel Teddy" by Woods and Woods (mahogany plush, wire-rimmed glasses, Rough Rider khaki jacket, 1987)

Nobody cares how much you know, until they know how much you care.

Believe you can and you’re halfway there.

Great thoughts speak only to the thoughtful mind, but great actions speak to all mankind.

(President Theodore Roosevelt)

♥ Your Sunday Bear Hug is brought to you by Mr. Cornelius, who loves Teddy Roosevelt so much he had to share three quotes instead of just one. In honor of President’s Day, he will speak softly and carry a big cookie.
