Blue Monday: Monday's Medicine

This is my first Blue Monday post, and I am excited to participate. Smiling Sally host Blue Monday on her blog, be sure to visit all the Blue Monday participants today and see all the blue on display.

There is a saying on the negative side about BLUE MONDAY but I think we can look at it on a POSITIVE side and say YES we have another chance this week to do better than last week---last week is never to return so forget it.

There is another saying "A happy heart is good medicine and a cheerful mind works healing." Prov.17:22 (amp.)

So this Monday I want to put a smile on your face to start the week with a laugh--it will be good medicine. Since May is the month for Mother's Day I want to give you a sample of what some 2nd grade children had to say about mothers.

1. She's the only one who knows where the scotch tape is.
2. Mostly to clean the house.
3. To help us out of there when we were getting born.

1.On the inside she's already perfect. Outside
I think some kind of plastic surgery.
2. Diet. You know, her hair---I'd diet, maybe BLUE.

Kids really have great imaginations and just tell it the way they see it.

So have a HAPPY week, put some laughter in and wash away your blue feelings. I hope you enjoyed my Blue Monday post...Have a great week!

Very motivating :D
Since I worked most weekends, I never really knew the Monday Blues anyway :)

Re blog comment and traveling:
I love to travel as well. But sometimes, like right now, I'm glad I can stay "home" and don't have to hassle.
It's the first time in ages that I had all 4 seasons in ONE place in YEARS :)

Have a great week!
