The Velveteen Rabbit Quotes (showing 1-14 of 14)
“Real isn't how you are made,' said the Skin Horse. 'It's a thing that happens to you. When a child loves you for a long, long time, not just to play with, but REALLY loves you, then you become Real.'

'Does it hurt?' asked the Rabbit.

'Sometimes,' said the Skin Horse, for he was always truthful. 'When you are Real you don't mind being hurt.'

'Does it happen all at once, like being wound up,' he asked, 'or bit by bit?'

'It doesn't happen all at once,' said the Skin Horse. 'You become. It takes a long time. That's why it doesn't happen often to people who break easily, or have sharp edges, or who have to be carefully kept. Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in the joints and very shabby. But these things don't matter at all, because once you are Real you can't be ugly, except to people who don't understand.”

Happy September

Einstein the bird.

Sending our loved ones across the miles much love and many blessings always.

The noblest calling in the world is that of a mother. True motherhood is the most beautiful of all arts, the greatest of all professions. 

She who can paint a masterpiece or who can write a book that will influence millions deserves the plaudits and admiration of mankind; 

But she who rears successfully a family of healthy,beautiful sons and daughters whose immortal souls will be exerting an influence throughout the ages 
long after paintings shall have faded, and books and statues shall have been destroyed, deserves the highest honor that man can give.

~ David 0. McKay

The Bull Who Cried...

Knowing he was about to be slaughtered, a bull in Hong Kong did what many people fail to realize or are skeptic about when it comes to animals - he showed emotion.

As reported by Weekly World News, a group of workers walked a bull to a packaging factory. They were about to slaughter him to make steaks and beef stews. When they were close to the front door of the slaughter house, the sorrowful bull suddenly stopped going forward and knelt down on his two front legs.

The bull... was all in tears.How did he know he was going to get killed before he entered the slaughter house? He is even smarter than people.

Mr. Shiu, a butcher recalled: "When I saw this kind of so-called "stupid" animal sobbing and with his eyes in fear and sorrow, I started trembling. I called the rest over to see.

They were just as surprised. We kept pushing the bull forward, but he just didn't want to move and sat there crying."Billy Fong, owner of the packaging factory said: "People thought animals didn't cry like human beings.

However that bull really sobbed like a baby."At that time, more than ten strong men witnessed the scene and they were all touched. Those who were responsible for slaughtering even felt more touched and teared as well.

Other workers working at the same slaughter house also came to see the crying bull. It was all packed with people. They were all shock by this scene. Three of them said they would never forget this crying bull when they slaughter other animals.

With both man and animal crying, everyone knew that nobody could kill the bull. The problem was, what should they do with him? In the end, they raised funds to buy this crying bull and sent him to a temple, where the kind monks would take care of him for life.After the workers had made a decision, a miracle happened.

A worker said: "When we promised this bull that we will not kill him, he started moving and followed us."How did he understand people's words?Mr. Shiu said: "Believe it or not? This is real although it sounds unbelievable."No doubt, this bull changed these butchers' lives.Hopefully this story has in turn changed yours."

Share if you Care for innocent lives.

Autumn Abundance by me Jeanne

Coolness, crispness and colours galore
Autumn soon once again you will arrive at our door

The Hues, new shoes, school schedules appear once again
Before me all accents of the most autumn kind
Yes we are leaving our summer behind
Crickets casanova, birds spell out a V in flight
Chinese lanterns in our gardens, wind chimes more echoes abound
Birds soon fly south, and oh the taste in my mouth
of our glorious Thanksgiving feasts, a bountiful harvest
Pumpkins, ghourds and Halloween soon
and our Canadian Thanksgiving with pumpkin pie and the ice cream spoon

I'll embrace you autumn and again in silent prayer will say.........
Thank you God for our beatuiful seasons.......
Thank you God for our reasons to embrace love and joy
and one another.

Let us all live applely ever after~♥

Have a Soulful Sunday and September
