Susan says:
7 Things you'll smile about when you're older....

The most splendid achievement of all is the constant striving to surpass yourself and to be worthy of your own approval. This is how happiness blooms.

So don't wait for someone to bring you roses; plant your own garden and decorate your own soul with ideas and passions that bring you joy.
You do not exist to impress the world; you exist to live your life in a way that makes you and your loved ones smile.

Stay true to your path, stay positive, and someday you will catch yourself smiling about...

1. Memories of working on a life passion.
Passion is the key, and it's worth making sacrifices for. It's the secret ingredient that has kept me going through some of the most painful times of my life. Because at some point, especially when the going gets tough, you have to wonder what you're doing and why.
What distinguishes many of us who are actively pursuing our dreams from those of us on the couch is that some of us have learned the hard way - perhaps through a severe loss - that life is short, and that we must capitalize on the opportunities each day gives us, on the raw potential our minds and bodies are capable of, and on every ounce of willpower we can muster to make our journeys worthwhile.

2. The little moments.
True wealth is the ability to experience each moment of life to the fullest.
The subtle things are often the most powerful, but sometimes we get so busy that we don't pay attention to them. So my challenge to you is this: Open your eyes. Wake up. Be attentive. Acknowledge each wonderful gift you have. See today as another day to enjoy the sights, sounds, smells, and sensations life has to offer.
Bottom line: Enjoy the little things, because one day you may look back and discover they were the big things.

3. The happiness you helped create.
Attitudes are catchy. Whether they're positive or negative, they're rubbing off on you and those around you.
So be positive. Let your intentions bleed with goodness - embodied in positive thoughts, cheerful words, and unselfish deeds - and the world will be to you a bright and happy place in which to work, play, and serve the greater good.

4. Relationships that weathered the storms with you.
No relationship is all sunshine, but two people can share one umbrella and survive the storm together.
In fact, the best relationships are not always the best because they have been consistently the happiest; sometimes they are that way because they have survived and strengthened through unhappy times.

5. Feeling beautiful on the inside.
As you get older, what you look like on the outside becomes less and less of an issue, and who you are on the inside becomes the primary point of interest. You eventually realize that beauty has almost nothing to do with looks; it's who you are as a person, how you make others feel about themselves, and most importantly, how you feel about yourself.

6. Knowing that you did your best.
Don't be afraid of death; be afraid of a life unlived. You don't have to live forever; you just have to live right now while you have a chance. Keep in mind that life doesn't always give you second chances, so when an opportunity arises, take it.
And never give up on a dream just because of the time that's required to accomplish it. The time will pass anyway. Do what you need to do so that, at the very least, you can look back on your life someday and say, "I gave it my best shot."

7. The peace in your heart.
Life is short. So focus on what matters to YOU and let go of what does not.
Remember, it is the strength of your conviction that determines your level of success, not the number of people who agree with every little thing you do. In the end, you will know that you've made the right decisions and followed the proper path when there is peace in your heart.

Rikki-Tikki-Tavi
This is the story of a boy and his weasel, a bird and a snake, India and the British Empire. Rudyard Kipling's dramatic tale, here excerpted from the greater volume of The Jungle Book, is the story of the loyal mongoose, Rikk-Tikki-Tavi, and the lengths to which he must go to protect his adoptive human family.

╰★╮ Leo's Molten Lava Chocolate Birthday Cake ╰★╮
'

INGREDIENTS:

4 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature, plus more for muffin tins
1/3 cup granulated sugar, plus more for muffin tins
3 large eggs
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
8 ounces bittersweet chocolate, melted
Confectioners' sugar, for dusting
Whipped Cream, for serving

DIRECTIONS:

STEP 1
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Generously butter 6 cups of a standard muffin tin. Dust with granulated sugar, and tap out excess. Set aside.

STEP 2
In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream the butter and granulated sugar until fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. With the mixer on low speed, beat in flour and salt until just combined. Beat in chocolate until just combined. Divide batter evenly among prepared muffin cups.

STEP 3
Place muffin tin on a baking sheet; bake just until tops of the cakes no longer jiggle when the pan is lightly shaken, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from oven; let stand 10 minutes.

STEP 4
To serve, turn out cakes, and place on serving plates, bottom sides up. Dust with confectioners' sugar, and serve with whipped cream, if desired. Serves 6.

I can't take credit for the art... Wendy used that for Charlie birds birthday
in Aug... I just copied and pasted, changed the name...

Posted on Nov 15, 2013 9:51:35 PM PST
LOB, you are welcome. ( I thought you would be scolding me for being up so late.) I hope the shots are working.

Sandy, you did a good job cut and pasting and putting in that extra effort to make Leo's day special.

Sleep tight.

Now here is a twist... A Vampire Christmas Book...

Christmas Healing
He's a vampire who has been locked away for a thousand years in a coffin, finally freed. But the world has changed drastically during that time, and there are so many things that he's not ready for. He hated being a vampire when it first happened, and he hates it now.

She's barely 18, a young girl with terminal cancer, once the height of popularity. Chosen by another vampire clan to keep them "updated" in the world, her blood infected and not tempting to them, she is brought into his household to teach him, page by page, the modern world and how to live despite her inevitable death. With the Christmas season approaching, she teaches him that there is more to life than just living. There's generosity and goodwill.

Although she has a boyfriend back home and he has no interest in living, slowly, a love and understanding blossoms between them that no one else can penetrate. A secret pact enfolds as her life force begins to fade.

Will he be able to grant her the greatest gift of all?
