Most of us still consider Sunday to be a day of rest. Some follow the
tradition of going to church, others show their faith or belief in their
own ways. To me, it is just as special to go to a place where nature is,
maybe for you, playing a round of golf or gardening. . .

Back to Country School Note:
Please find attached to this note,
one 5 year old boy,
much cleaner and quieter than usual
and with new haircut and overalls.
With him go the prayers of his parents.
He’s good at creating airplanes and chaos,
very adept at tying knots
and attracting stray dogs.
He especially likes peanut butter,
horses, T.V. westerns,
empty boxes, and his shirttail out.
He is allergic to baths, bedtime,
taking out trash and coming the
first time he’s called.
He needs to be taught (and kept in line),
loved and be told to be “good” or “listen” often.
He needs reminders to blow his nose and
come home straight from school.
After having him in your class
and on your nerves,
you may not be the same,
but I believe you’ll be glad to know him
because while he strews books, toys
he has a special way of scattering happiness!

Last quote from a book, “Sit!”
“Time to Play
He knows how to have fun wherever he is. Good natured, whatever the weather,
eager to explore everything that catches his eye (even though it was thoroughly
sniffed just yesterday!)
He is frolicsome without fail, a dog is an A-1 expert when it comes to knowing
how to play!
Once we take on the responsibilities of adulthood, we tend to leave our days of
Play behind us.
Isn’t play just for kids?”
Play is a gift for our lives to fill with joy and laughter.
It’s what our body needs to release tension and stress.
It’s what our spirit craves for renewal.
Petting any animal, watching their enthusiasm, over small things, tails wagging,
throats purring or horse’s head nuzzling your shoulder, all fill us with carefree
Today, take time out to do something that has no purpose than to make you laugh!
You don’t have to be under 12, or a member of a canine family, to enjoy the blessings
