Fri-Yay Funday Birthday Haiku

Happy Friday Everyone,

Hope you have some moments of joy today and your weekend coming up! We were fortunate enough to get 3 out of 4 of our kids for dinner last night for my middle daughter’s Birthday. Happy Birthday Blair!

complete with a chain to hold it when you take it off.

one more year to celebrate
the day one was born

It was fun to make this arrangement in anticipation of celebrating the gifts of my daughters beauty, talent and simplicity and dabble with floral creativity. She wanted fondue which was a tall order with the pandemic but we managed to borrow fondue pots from friends so everyone could have their own pot for dipping their veggies, fruit, chicken and bread into the delectable cheese.

On a side note: I’m entering a local Haiku contest for the fun of it. I am inspired by everyone in our community. My mother (my biggest fan) sent me the guidelines and said “you should do this”, so I thought “why not”. The funnest part was I made up 10 different ones and asked the family and a few friends to pick their 3 favorites and 3 of them actually made their own. That is the biggest inspiration to me of all. Once of my daughter’s sent me some beautiful poetry she just wrote as well. There is no better feeling than inspiring others to explore their gifts of creativity and light. I’m going to submit them later today. Win or loose, it’s fun to try. I’ll send them to you after the contest.

A special thanks to some of you for your support and encouragement in helping me understand the basic guidelines. I truly am appreciatve.

Have a wonderful weekend and I’ll see you on Monday!

Stay Blessed, Be Bright and Be You!

Blessings,

❀️

Cindy

    1. Oh thanks a lot Ingrid! And you’re sooo kind to say that about my flower arrangement!!! Lol!!!! Thanks so sweet and I’m sure yours were just just beautiful and simplistic which is lovely. Well, thanks to you and others for your inspiration! Goff already gave me a little instruction and I changed the second line. You’re sweet, I’m gonna try to read his instructions again before submitting. It’s totally not how I think.
      Thanks dear friend! xoxoxoxo

      1. Your flowers were gorgeous. I love flowers that look more like a wild flower arrangement. Your table was set with love. You have sweet kids I can tell. I bet they are so proud of their mom. Love you my not so far away friend. Hugs too. I have so missed hugging people. πŸ’•πŸ€—β€οΈπŸ˜˜πŸŒΈπŸŒΊπŸŒ»πŸŒ»

      2. Oh I’m so glad you liked them and they had that wild look which is what I like as well! Truth is, it’s the only thing I know to do.. lol. They really are sweet and I’m sure they are proud of me… perhaps I see it reflected in them wanting to hang with us or is it the free food? 🀣.
        I know what you mean.. I haven’t hugged my mom at all since last Feb.. ugh.. xoxoxoxox ❀️

  7. I am sure you had a great time together! So good to get together with family. We too had dinner with my son and family who live nearby. We decided it is worth the risk. We still must have our family! I can’t believe when I hear some people have not visited their parents since last March!
    Great post Cindy!

  9. cindy / it is so asssome when the poetry sharing spreads like that!
    how fun and congrats on entering the challenge to submit work –
    i have found that sometimes i pull out my best work when submitting (and it has been a while)
    and i started the post by looking at the photo and noticed the fondue pot and then discovered you had a party and everyone had their own pot!
    good idea for celebrating

      Thanks, it was fun to do since I’ve been writing so much so I thought “what the hey, I might as well”. A nudge from my mom always does the trick.
      Oh that’s awesome you submit sometimes. Time is the real determining factor for all of this.
      It was fun for everyone to have their own pot for sure. Thanks so much for the visit. Have a great day! πŸ’–
