Tuesdays Tails

Thank you - Jerry At As The cracker Crumbles 

I am going to make this so simple and so fun today.  These elephants look like they are having a great time.  I need some fun in my life - I still have everyone's prayers with me - but as far as I know - there is no place in the Bible that says that happiness and fun is a sin.  In fact I think the opposite. 

So for today - as I watch this again - I'm going to be an elephant - I'm going to just jump right in there with them!  I don't care if I get dirty or wet (it's raining here anyway). I don't care what I look like, my hair or my make-up.  I'm just diving in and I hope you come with me!

Can you feel that wet dirty slime?  Lol.

Geronimo!

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY!



 Love, Chatty and thanks for everything.

C'mon - hang onto my hand and I'll jump right in there with you! I'll bet that mud will give us glowing, dewy complexions!

I'm mostly known as 'MA' said...

no no...being happy and having fun is not a sin for sure. I think it is quite the opposite to be fearful and discouraged is the sin. The good Lord wants us to enjoy all that He created and found good. Being happy in life and appreciating all the blessing we have is a very good thing. Hope your Tuesday is a terrific one!

LAUGH. SMILE. I agree with you completely that it is a delight to the Lord. I will be waiting for word about tomorrow.

DaCraftyLady Debb said...

Terra said...

Hey, a mud bath could turn out to be a beauty treatment. Sounds like fun.

Cheryl @ The Farmer's Daughter said...

I'm all for being happy and having fun! I am praying that everything will be well with your hubby and that you are doing well, too! Take care.

Paula said...

I'm for it. Reminds me of when I was a kid in the country and we pretended a mud puddle was our swimming pool.

Tracy said...

Good for you! I think there are times in our lives where we have to say 'the heck with everything' and just do something fun and crazy that makes us life and feel alive again! Many smiles and hugs to you!

Ginny said...

Yes, we can miss a lot of fun because we don't want to get messy. I wanted Ella to help me make biscuits yesterday but she didn't want to get her hands messy. She will just LOVE these elephants, especially where the mom helps her baby get out at the end.

Gloria Hood said...

Such fun! We will jump right in with you!

Sandra said...

i hope you waited until they were done and gone, i would not want one of those magnificent creatures to stand or step on me.

The Boston Lady said...

Sandie, I think this is the perfect philosophy and they say mud baths are good for the skin anyway. Thing is, you are going to have to go in anyway, so why not go in by choice and make the best of it all! Thinking of you... Ann

Where would we be without laughter?

I'm not sure who had more fun, the elephants or the people watching them

Angela said...

The elephants are so cute!

Hugs,

Louvregirl said...

I was extremely fascinated by how they helped the baby out of the hole at the end. That was amazing. I used to go down to mudflows at Lake Michigan (as a pre-teen) and play in the mud! Loved it! Still LOVE LOVE working with clay because of that!
Hope you are well, CC.

Shug said...

Hey Sandie...
I was thinking about your earlier today. Still praying for your family.
My kids have always had fun playing in the mud, so I think I'll jump in there with you...
big hugs to you!

Debby@Just Breathe said...

They certainly had a fun time!

Crack You Whip said...

I think you are right...happiness is not a sin!

"Have fun!"

Marydon said...

Right there with you, sister!
Have a great day, my friend.

Hugs,

Blondee said...

Still praying up here in NY.

Love the pic of the little girls! And no, fun certainly isn't a sin. A little levity in a not so nice situation can go a long way. Sometimes it's what keeps US sane! :)

Debbie said...

do one fun thing, every. single. day.

you'll never regret it!!

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Looks like loads of fun, Sandie... I'll jump in there with you!!!! We'll play together, get dirty, stinky, nasty --and keep on laughing. Okay?????

Will be thinking about you all tomorrow. HUGS and PRAYERS to you and hubby.
Hugs,
Betsy

Susan said...

Ahhhhhhh, the wet dirty slime felt great, Sandie! Better than a shower! Ha! Thanks for sharing this delightful video. Susan

jack69 said...

Sherry enjoyed it but did not want to join them!!! They love the mud, now that should show the folks that think a mud pack erases wrinkles, a few things..!!!!

Good post!!

That corgi :) said...

I wasn't sure if the little one enjoyed being in there or not, but I think it would be fun to sling some mud and water around like that! I think it is neat that you can find happiness and fun and you are choosing to find it, Sandie, with what is going on in your lives right now. I think that is what God would want you to do; trust in him and live the best you can and laugh when you can.

Rob-bear said...

I am a Bear, and a fairly large one. But I don't play with elephants. I could get hurt in there!

Mevely317 said...

It's been TOO long since I've just let go ... but now that I think about it? Let's DO it :)

Buttercup said...

Sandie, thanks for a big smile. I'd love to be rolling in the mud, too. I might settle for a spa mud bath. Wouldn't that be fun!

Holly from 300 Pounds Down said...

What an absolutely awesome way to think!! I love it!

Jean said...

Hey...What a great way to connect with our Inner Child. I loved playing in the mud as a wee one.:-D)

Prayers still in action,Sandie!

barbara l. hale said...

Good for you! I felt a bit like an elephant myself today.

SweetMarie said...

Love it! We've been talking through email and I didn't make it to your blog post. lol
You know I'm thinking and praying for you and your husband.
Love,

Bev said...

I'm with you Sandie!! Lets just have some fun!!!

Jerry E Beuterbaugh said...

Thank you for another very honorable mention!

Granny Annie said...

All I could do was worry about that baby. I feared it would get trampled and then I feared it would not be able to get out. Oh how I loved the help that came from the others. That baby was constantly cared for by the whole tribe. Shows we should not fear a circle of love. There is one around you now too Sandie:)

HOOTIN ANNI said...

You betchore sweet patootie...I'm in there with ya'.......all the way.

Arkansas Patti said...

What a delightful video. Amazing how they all knew where their massive feet were and no one stepped on the little guy.
My thoughts and prayers are with you today.

Dolores said...

I just love elephants for their uniqueness and their loyalty! Such a fun video...and so sweet to see how the little guy was helped getting out of the mud hole. Sure looks like a fun time....

Stella said...

That header is way to precious. Thanks for dropping by with prayers and good wishes. I am up about more the last two days. So glad it is my right side that is not injured.

Knitty said...

I don't have to clean the tub or shower after the mud play, do I? If not, I'm in.

Hugs to you and yours.

Betty (picture circa 1951) said...

I was looking for news on your husband. Did I miss it? I'm playing catch up again.

Super Earthling said...

What a wonderful video! It makes me want to be a kid again and play in the mud! :)

As for fun and happiness--I believe they are indeed great blessings. I know laughter has healed me in so many ways. I do my best to pass it on to others because I believe so strongly in the positive, healing power of joy and laughter.

Whatever troubles you've been having in your life, I wish you peace, healing, and, of course, fun and happiness! :)

--Susan

Dee said...

So much to learn from these sweet creatures...I love it!
