Are you growing in the right direction?

Are you a writer? These little boys of ours are "writing" their life stories with every activity they engage in and every memory they make. 
Charlie is the happiest baby, loves his  baby electronic activity pad, and is eager to learn new
things. ARE YOU EAGER TO LEARN new technology, a new poem form, or a different technique? You are never too old or young to learn.

Alex is usually pensive and observes everything around him. He likes to see how and why things tick, and he loves to tinker. Do you collect and store information? 

Liam is an active learner and prefers to jump right in. He thinks everyone is his friend. And he is so interested in learning to read, write, and spell.

My writer friends, and all others, reach high. Do not give up easily. Climb over obstacles... find a way to attain your goals.
Stretch your way to success. Have an "I can do it!" or an "I can try it!" attitude. Never say NEVER.
Sometimes you will feel down, especially when you don't meet your goals or don't have enough time to pursue your interests. Take five minutes or ten and BEGIN. You do not have to finish, but if you never begin, you cannot possibly finish. Takes more muscles to frown than smile, so put on a happy face and begin.

Receiving a rejection can make you feel down right mad. Don't pout or cry too long. Rejection is seldom about you, personally. It has more to do with editorial needs. Take a nap and refresh.

Never stop growing, changing, and attaining new heights. Reach for the stars, and know that elbowing your way into position (as Nicole and Nicholas did while I was snapping pics) sometimes pays off. Be confident in your pursuits.

Spring has arrived, and it's time to come out of hibernation. If you've been lazing around, get outdoors and enjoy fresh air, new growth, and nature's beauty.

Then go inside and write a paragraph, or a couple sentences to share with me. Will you?

Linda--Great words of encouragement. And the photos! Those three great grandsons of yours--each one is cuter than the one before.

And Nicole! She's a young lady now. My, how she has grown.

What? No picture of that old, grizzled hare of yours? ;)

Aw, such sweet and adorable photos. Looks like you had a fun Easter. Thank you for the encouraging and supportive words too.

Great pictures! Love the boys in their plaid shirts, and Nicole and Nicholas all grown up in their pastels. Very Easter-y. And some good advice, too.

So true! Thanks for sharing this encouraging post along with the photos of those sweet boys. They always make me smile no matter the kind of day I'm having. :)

Hello Linda, I just wondered in through the blog trail and found your encouraging words. Looking forward to reading more of your words for sure :-)
Joy and Blessings,
