Today is February 1 and you know we have the tradition of calling out ” Rabbit” ” Rabbit” the first thing when we wake up on the first day of the month. As the story goes… doing this little ritual brings good luck and harmony throughout the month.
And since Tommy will be having his surgery this morning… Mama Boo isn’t taking any chances… rabbits and prayers to God. Will update you tomorrow on Tommy’s outcome. Please keep the prayers going until he is safely back home in bed.
Now you know me and my crazy ” connective” neurons -my mind went… surgery… rabbit… February 1…. ah… Bugs Bunny… ” What’s up Doc?” ( And as a mother that is all I want to know today… ” What’s up Doc?” ( And then I want to hear good news via Kaitlyn! )
Texts, calls, and emails have poured in lifting my spirits higher and higher. It is a great reminder that no matter how crazy our world gets …when the going gets tough.. friends get tougher! I recently read that the German root of the word ” friendship” means ” place of high safety.”
What a beautiful thought but then that’s what your thoughts and prayers are doing for me… keeping my spirits lifted! This safety opens us to God. As Cicero said ” A friend is a second self.” And as Saint Martin spoke” My friends are the beings through whom God loves me.”
So until tomorrow… There can be no greater or simpler ambition than to be a friend.
Today is my favorite day 🤞🙏🏻 Winnie the Pooh
On a fun note… James B Edwards School had crazy hair day for fifth graders and twins day for first graders.
