In 1969, John married Yoko and the idea of peace and loving your fellow wo(man) was forever changed. Knowing their marriage would turn into a huge media circus they decided to use that press in a positive way by proceeding to stay in bed for 7 days inviting press from all over the world to hear John preach the good word of peace.
John was shot in the back and killed in 1980. It’s sad that a man who inspired peace and love was killed in such a brutal way. I’d like to think John would be the first one to forgive the person who killed him as that’s the kind of bloke he was.
Today’s is his anniversary…so take a moment today to imagine there’s no heaven, no hell, no possessions, no countries at war with one another, nothing to kill or die for, no religion to fight about, no greed…
Remember to love your fellow brother and sister. What better time of the year to do so?
Wow, can you believe how quickly Thanksgiving came this year? I blinked and it was here. It’s strange how life works sometimes, when I was a kid the Holidays seemed to take years and years to arrive but the older I get the quicker they come.
Turkey and all the fixings sure is nice but in my opinion we definitely don’t need a single day of the year to be thankful, we should always be thankful from the point we wake up in the morning to the point we get into bed at night. But Thanksgiving is a nice little reminder, just in case we’ve forgotten since the hustle and bustle of life sure does keep us crazy, to be thankful for all we have be it the big stuff like a roof over our heads, food in our stomachs, and people to love to the little things like having a good laugh or enjoying the comforts of watching a TV show under a warm blanket.
I have many, many, many things to be thankful but I wanted to take time out and remember how thankful I am for each of you. Thanks for visiting, thanks for keeping in touch with me via Twitter, E-mail, and Comments. Thanks for sharing the fun, sometimes weird and wacky, and always awesome road of makeup with me. You’re all like my extended family….I love chatting with you daily about beauty as well as random other bits and bobs! I’m so blessed to have each of you in my life even though most of us have never even had the opportunity to meet, share a cup of tea, or even hug.
I’m so blessed to have such amazing readers!
Remember to eat more than one dessert, be sure to get up early and steal all the great Black Friday makeup deals online in your pajamas, and most important I hope all of you have a blessed, happy, and safe Thanksgiving!
