ONCE UPON A TIME
"Good morning world.. What do you think about when I say Once Upon A Time? And thinking about Time, likewise writing about the seasons that keep flying by. That’s another interesting starting and stopping question of mine. So staying with that TIME FLYING BY LINE. While being a Writer of children's books. This ONCE UPON A TIME line of thought is always on my mind. Because writing about HAPPILY EVER AFTER day and night, I think about ONCE UPON A TIME, all of the time! So as I am finishing up my 17th children's book that will be for sale very soon! While I am trying to get your mind off of the Virus, Fires, Violence, Hurricanes, Tornados, Flu, and all of LIFES OTHER PAINS too. Today I thought I would change things up a little bit in a fun CHILDLIKE way. That's why, connecting my two worlds of thought together, while thinking about LIFE AS AN ADULT… joined in with your PAST TIME as a child! I thought I would write this blog post about…. ONCE UPON A TIME. And making that ONCE UPON A TIME, statement of mine. Knowing that we are all TRYING TO GET TO OUR HAPPILY EVER AFTER! As you know, yesterday I was writing about the last sights and sounds of summertime’s happiness and laughter. So, realizing whether we are all still thinking about the DELIGHTFUL DIVINE LIFE SAVING sounds and sights of our sunrises that still make us SMILE.... Or whether we keep thinking back to the disappointments found in our past childhood sunsets that have left us CRYING.... We all need to realize that everything in our life started out with.... A ONCE UPON A TIME......So realizing, everything in our LIFE is about ONCE UPON A TIME…With all of us searching for our HAPPILY EVER AFTER that needs to be found. In that EVER AFTER line, there will always be a BEGINNING AND AN END TO EVERYTHING. So realizing TIME WILL FLY BY. AND TIME WILL LEAVE YOU BEHIND. You likewise need to realize that the STORY OF YOUR LIFE will always be written IN BETWEEN THE LINES. That’s why, to WRITE THE STORY THAT WILL MAKE YOU HAPPY.

So, knowing… RIGHT NOW THAT YOU ARE LIVING SOMEWHERE INBETWEEN THE LINES. To connect my thoughts about Earth and Heaven. And to make sure that we all find our HAPPILY EVER AFTER IN PARADISE. I am going to write the next couple of posts like A CHILDREN’S BOOK ABOUT LIFE. And stating that beginning fact, I know that you will agree with me in our STORY LIFE LINE, whether it be fall, winter, spring, or summertime….. That our ONCE UPON A TIMES..... Will always be intriguing, exciting, and yet a little bit TERRIYING, and FRIGHTENING! That's why, changing things up again before we shut summers "before and after" door....
