Good Friday morning! Do you have fragments floating your head; not worthy of a whole post but things you’d like to share? Well, that is why Mrs. 4444 came up with Friday Fragments. Join us and Frag On.
The Funny Things a Diva Says
Since coming to Austin, I have taken writing classes at the local community college. This is addition to the two Masters Degrees and Bachelors Degree I already possess. A commercial for a college came on TV. Little Diva looks at me and says, “Mommy, why do you keep going to college? Are you terrible at it?”
Three degrees later, I have no answer for that — haha!
My daughter loves My Little Pony – a lot. (Anyone who saw the floor of her room here can attest.) At bath time, the other night, she was playing with one when I asked her to get out. She then starts singing to the Pony…
“Don’t worry about a Pony,
Every little Pony
Gonna be a Pony”
Not sure when my daughter became a Marley fan but it cracked me up.
On Tuesday night, I had an event. I came into the living room to say goodbye before leaving. Little Diva looks up.
LD: I thought you were going to put on makeup.
Me: I did.
LD: Oh! I couldn’t tell.
This leaves me wondering if I am so beautiful without makeup or I just did a very bad job. Truth or not, I’ll go with the former.
Finally, at the ESPY awards this week Michael Sam received the Arthur Ashe Award for Courage. In his speech, he shared these beautiful words of the Namesake.
“Start where you are.
Use what you have.
Do what you can.”
In a world full of tough news lately, I can see no better words by which to live my life.
And in view of all the tough news, here is Mr. Marley himself sharing “Don’t Worry About a Thing”.
Those are my frags for the week. Do you have any to share? If so, please head to Half Past Kissin‘ and join the fun.
