Below is a post taken from one of my other blogs, I posted this one on 1 March 2010 and I thought I would share it with you on here.  Wishing you a day filled with an abundance of positive thoughts.  Love Clarabelle

Full of Character and Excitement

I was looking after my 3 year old niece the other week whilst her parents went off to pick up their new puppy dog.

I love watching my little niece she is such a funny, cheery little girl full of character and excitement. She was happily looking out of the window into my back garden when she shouted “look Auntie Claire, they’re dancing”, I asked her what was dancing and she said “the trees are dancing” and she began to copy the swaying movements of the trees blowing in the wind outside. It was so cute to watch, I smiled and I thought to myself what a truly wonderful positive perception she has on Mother Nature.

Such an Amazing “Mummy”

Later on that day I kept thinking about my niece’s words and how she could have said something completely different using a more negative connotation, but she didn’t. I then thought about my younger sister, who is such an amazing “Mummy” and how positive and happy she is. I just know that my sister’s love for nature and optimistic outlook on life has made such a positive influence on my little niece’s young life.

It made me think about how important it is for us all to choose to have a positive mindset and positive take on the world. Like in those famous lyrics sung by Whitney Houston “I believe the children are our future” – I do hope the trees stay dancing!!

Oh Little Carmen

I was in Auntie Claire role the other day and spent some quality time with my 2 lovely nieces, Megan (age 6) and Carmen (11 months) and my gorgeous nephew, Sean (age 8). I am so proud to have those 3 beautiful children in my life, I just love them so much.  We were playing around and I asked them if they wanted me to write a poem for each of them and they got so excited.  Below is the poem I created for Carmen and I am delighted to say all of their eyes lit up with joy when I read each of their poems out to them, I could see it really made them feel so very special….and they are.  Here is the first of these poems below.

Oh Little Carmen

Carnen
My little beautiful niece Carmen (11 months)

Oh little Carmen, we love you so,

The cutest little girl, in a pretty pink bow.

You light up our hearts, with the smile upon your face,

A special treasure forever, the sweetest grace.

The brightest light, shines from you,

Stronger than the sun, in the sky so blue.

An angel of fun, with a curious mind,

A bundle of joy, simply one of a kind.
