I am pleased that you decided to c'mon in and join the Merry group.
I understand the down times and when friends at work are feeling a little down or over-loaded, I jump in with the following little "pick me up", it works like a charm every time. I hope it gets a smile from you.
"When the world gets twisted,
A little patience will help to work things out.
Magic and fun makes life seem simple.
Sometimes we donít need accessories.
Being unique is more popular than you think -
Stop following trends and fads."
Here is my catchy jingle . . . I sing it and it gets stuck in the person's head like a bad flu - but one that you are happy to have caught.
ďItís Slinky . . .
Everyone one knows itís slinky!
What walks down stairs alone or in pairs
And makes a slinky sound?
A spring, a spring, a marvelous thing,
Everyone knows itís slinky.
Itís slinky, itís slinky, itís a wonderful toy.
Itís slinky, itís slinky, itís fun for a girl or a boy.Ē
Sometimes if we don't have time to chat, I'll just ask the question? "What comes down stairs alone or in pairs And makes a slinky sound?" And the person smiles widely at our private joke and coasts through the rest of the day with ease.
8) For me, joining forums that celebrate my favourite time of the year and forming friendships with regular "posters" is a present I give myself.
I'm glad you decided to give yourself a gift by joining in the fun. I look forward to continuing getting to know you.
