Celebrate AND A to Z

It Friday, again, and there's so much going on in my life I think my head is spinning!

Okay, let's start with Celebrate the small things blog hop. Thanks to Vikki!

What am I happy about? That's easy!

1. My daughter's birthday is today. She's 17 and ready to face the world with her beuaty, charm and grace. Happy Birthday, my little tootsie wootsie:)

2. I get to visit my oldest daughter this weekend, who is expecting my first grand DAUGHTER:) Woot!!

Have a happy Friday celebration, beautiful guys and dolls:)

A to Z Challenge

EXCELLENCE

The dictionary defines the word excellence as the quality of being outstanding or extremely good.

This is the type of character trait I want to teach my kids. Extremely good. Not goody two shoes, mind you, just seeking the best and trying their best. To be excellent in speech and conduct. To be an outstanding person. That's what I want to teach my kids. That's what I strive to be myself:)

Happy Friday everyone! I will post my Pixar Challenge tonight, okay? I know. I said that yesterday. But I will do it tonight!

    1. It's almost scary to admit. She's getting older and that means I am too:)

  6. I like the idea of excellence being trying your best - it isn't always about results.

    Good luck with the rest of the challenge.

  7. Happy birthday to your daughter and I hope you enjoy your visit with your oldest. I just saw my comedy blog Laughing at Life 2 on that list up there so I think I have been dropping a ball by forgetting to celebrate the small things. I have been struggling with A to Z and I guess I didn't realize... Uh-oh.

  17. As some of my characters say, a dragon must light the birthday cakes' candles so that one's good wishes could become true...;) Yet, a greeting card of mine will save your daughter the trouble to look for such a dangerous creature, (see my card at my posts about best birthdays :). HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Best wishes! Let the wonderful noise of the sea always sounds in her ears! (as my water dragons' hunters would say - my Tale Of The Rock Pieces). Nice blog! Will be glad to follow you and post a suggestion of mine: using of sites like zazzle.com, cafepress. com, fiverr? They could be a good way to show your works/blog, etc and to help "remove" stupidity in the streets like headlines on t-shirts, fridge-magnets, cups, etc: My Boyfriend kisses Better Than Yours, FBI - female body inspector, etc. Not everything we see and think of should be about sex, right? It would be much better if there were more nice pictures (even of mythical creatures), good thoughts, poems (from any genre are welcome I guess), etc? I'm allanbard there, I use some of my illustrations, thoughts, poems from my books (like: One can fight money only with money, Even in the hottest fire there's a bit of water, All the problems in the world lead to one - narrow-minded people, or
    Let's watch the moon, let's meet the sun!
    Let's hear soon the way the Deed was done!
    Let's listen to the music the shiny crystals played,
    let's welcome crowds of creatures good and great...
    etc). I guess such lines sound and look much better than the usual we see every day? Best wishes! Let the wonderful noise of the sea always sounds in your ears! (a greeting of the water dragons' hunters - my Tale Of The Rock Pieces).
