Good Morning Friends!
I wanted to slide in here real fast to share with you a video which is sure to put you in Little Space! When I was growing up, I religiously watched “Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood”. Fred Rogers was a wonderful minister-turned-TV entertainer who created a children’s show that was as wholesome as it gets. Instead of infusing his show with religious messages, he decided to take large themes (such as: love, acceptance, respect, honesty, being unique, etc.) that everyone could relate to. Using puppets, a toy trolley, and of course his wonderful singing voice, he warmed the hearts of millions for nearly 30 years. Here are a few of my favorite quotes by him:
“In times of stress, the best thing we can do for each other is to listen with our ears and our hearts and to be assured that our questions are just as important as our answers.”
“Knowing that we can be loved exactly as we are gives us all the best opportunity for growing into the healthiest of people.”
“Our society is much more interested in information than wonder, in noise rather than silence…And I feel that we need a lot more wonder and a lot more silence in our lives”
“Mutual caring relationships require kindness and patience, tolerance, optimism, joy in the other’s achievements, confidence in oneself, and the ability to give without undue thought of gain.”
Today, I have a video from Mister Rogers’ vinyl records. He recorded this way back in 1981 on his album “You Are Special”. (He used that phrase a lot). But this album isn’t like other music albums. He talks to you, as if you’re sitting there across from him. He’s gentle and understanding. He sings to you. My personal favorite song is “Just For Once” which always makes me sway with glee. ❤ I think it’s the perfect song for anyone in a Cg/l relationship. Give it a listen and let me know what you think! 😉
Have a beautiful and relaxing weekend, my friends. Sending you positive thoughts and vibes.
