{Noah's Chocolate Mice....and a sweet winner}

these chocolate
Christmas Mice
remind me of some
tips for life
from Noah's Ark
  1. build your future on high ground
  2. when you are stressed float for awhile
  3. remember the Ark was built by amateurs: the Titanic by professionals
  4. stay fit, when you're 600 years old, someone may ask you to do something real big
  5. remember that we are all in the same boat
  6. don't listen to critics, just get on with the job that needs to be done
  7. for safety's sake travel in pairs
  8. speed is not always an advantage...the snails were on board with the cheetahs

9. no matter the storm, when you are with God, there is always a rainbow waiting

Congratulations to the winner. I do like your snowman header. Snowmen are in my heart this year and I do believe it is beginning to look like Christmas everywhere I go.

Simple Home said...

I loved the "Noah's Ark" advice, and congratulations to Libbie. I was thinking about you today as I called to make an appointment at the dentist for one of my kids:-) I hope all is well.

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

KORALEE! Oh, dearest one, I have my cuppa tea in hand to savor before I start my day....oh you said so much in your comment that just rang true in my heart; when I think of all the love and care from friends and ESPECIALLY BLOG FRIENDS, it just moves me to tears...and whenever I am in a position where I may feel a little bit of that four letter word, F.E.A.R., I TOO think of my friends and I cry! I used to cry when I went to the dentist too...I had a lot of dental work done in my youth and thinking of my friends always helped me imagine that circle of power, protection and prayer. I always have to remember that fear is a shadow of what we cannot see and then we find out it is nothing....Oh do I have to remember that!!!

I RAISE MY CUPPA TO YOU DEAREST ONE!!! Now go and get more rest and I do hope you can enjoy your tea deserve it!! GROSSES BISES, Anita

Privet and Holly said...

I love this, Koralee.
I am printing it out,
as we speak, to post
on our family bulletin
board : ) !! Hope your
week is off to a wonderful
start and that there will
be a rainbow moment in
store for you as you go
about your days!
xx Suzanne

Those are some pretty cute chocolates :D
They remind me of holidays at Grandma's, she always bought interesting looking candy - Grandmas are apparently good at that :D
