I went to lunch at a fast food place today, which I rarely do as I don’t like fast food but my companions chose our lunch place so I went with it.
I asked for a cup of water to drink and was served it in a plastic cup with plastic lid.
I asked for a straw and was given a paper wrapped paper straw.
I really dislike paper straws, they taste awful to me, however I can support their use in an attempt to save the environment, however I do not understand the purpose of providing paper straws in plastic cups with plastic lids, if seems to defeat the whole purpose.
Blessings to all my family, friends and followers!
I hope you are all are experiencing a delightful First Day of Spring wherever you are at this time.
I do pray for those in quarantine and lockdown that they can still look outside and see the beauty of nature and for those who are shut in with illnesses at this time I pray for your speedy recovery as well.

This New Year I created a daily Art Challenge in my Instagram account. Each day of the week has a different prompt.
Saturday’s prompt is “Silly Saturday”.
Gee, I was surprised that I had such a hard time being creatively silly! I guess I am always so focused on making meaningful art and poetry that I find it hard to just create something non-sensical. However, I kept trying and did come up with something.
It helped to read some Dr. Seuss and Alice in Wonderland 😊

This poem was inspired by a book I am reading titled “Kisses for Katie”. It is a true story of a young American girl Katie Davis who leaves her comfortable lifestyle in America to go to help the under privileged people of Uganda. Her one heart full of love for these people ended up changing many lives for the better. It is an amazing story that continues today thru the non- profit ministry “Amazima.” Which she started in 2008.
