Monday’s “Makes Me Smile”

We watched Elf the other night – all I can say is hahaha!  It’s truly one of my favorite movies.  Sometimes I even watch it in the hot days of summer!  It has the best quotable lines… many of which are parts of my daily vocabulary.  Quotes like:

“We elves try to stick to the four main food groups: candy, candy canes, candy corns and syrup.”

“You did it! Congratulations! World’s best cup of coffee! Great job, everybody! It’s great to be here.”

“I’m a cotton-headed ninny-muggins. “

“Deb, you have such a pretty face, you should be on a Christmas card!”

“The best way to spread Christmas Cheer, is singing loud for all to hear.”

Do you go around quoting Elf??? 😉

Moving on… I’ll admit – sometimes I actually feel this way.  haha.  Do you?

haha – OR do you ever feel this way??? (Me too!)

OK… This one is a stretch – but it still makes me smile!


This picture had a caption below it.  I’ve quoted it directly. hahaha

“Just when you think you’ve absorbed all the awkwardness…you realize there’s a goat on her lap.”

And this… it’s just plain sad…

But this truth makes me smile most of all.


Hope you are off to a super week, my friends.  I’m finally feeling more like my “old” self, and I thank you for your prayers.  I am praying for every one of you who will read this post.  May the Lord surround you with His love and His Presence, His Provision, His Protection, and His Peace.  He knows, He truly cares, and He is working.  He’s got you.

With much love~

PS:  Though I feel 99% sure that the Christmas couple pic was made “awkward” on purpose, I would NEVER want to offend anyone.  So, if by a slight chance that the photo is “real,” and it is of you or someone you love… I’m sorry.  But it is still kind of funny… isn’t it???  😉
