Que Sera Sera – What Will Be Will Be

Doris Day, the lovely actress and singer, passed away Monday, May 13. She was born on April 3, 1922, and enjoyed a very fulfilling career, which entertained us all.

Her love of animals also led to her becoming an animal welfare activist.

Here’s a few of her quotes:

I’m going to do as much as I can for the animal world, and I’ll never stop. ~  Doris Day

“I have found that when you are deeply troubled, there are things you get from the silent devoted companionship of a dog that you can get from no other source.”
Doris Day

***

And, I’ll leave you with her well known song…

“Que Sera Sera {What Will Be Will Be)”, by Doris Day, was written by Jay Livingston and Ray Evans, in 1956. It is on the Columbia label.

***

I’ve always enjoyed her movies, and these are just a few of many that I’ve seen:

Pillow Talk

With Six You Get Eggrolls

Please Don’t Eat the Daisies

3 – 2 – 1 Quote Me – Cinderella Today

I was tagged to do the 321 quote me Cinderella Today edition by Suze. Thanks for thinking of me, as these are fun to do.

You can also go see Rory’s blog for all the details. Thanks for having interesting challenges for us.

Now, I’m not really sure what we’re supposed to do with this…Cinderella Today prompt.

Here’s a cute clip from the animated movie of Cinderella, and a couple of quotes from it.

 

It can do magic – believe it or not  ~ Fairy Godmother

The thing-a-ma-bob that does the job is bibbidi-bobbidi-boo ~ Fairy Godmother

Now, to bring it up to date…

~

Scene: Bedroom

Cyndi: (crying & ranting) “Those step-sisters of mine are bullies! They make fun of me, and order me around. They’re not the boss of me! I’m calling CPS”

Suddenly a bright orb floats in through the open window.

Cyndi: What the @!*#?

Orb (turning into Ru Paul): “I’m your fairy god-mother. Girl, stop being a snowflake. Put your big girl britches on, because I’m sending you to a fancy dance. You’ll dance with the stars, and win the mirror ball with the Prince.”

Cyndi: I don’t have anything good to wear to a fancy dance.

FG-M: “Where’s your phone? It’s magic, you know.” (takes the phone from Cyndi, and taps in a website address) “Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo … here ya go…Amazon! Order whatever you want.” (In this tale, shipping takes only seconds)

Cyndi: (putting on gorgeous ball gown) I love it! Thank you Fairy God-Mother!

FG-M: Now, Shante, Shashay away. (floats out the window)

Cyndi: Turns on her laptop, finds the little blue bird, and starts Tweeting to all her friends. Takes a selfie with her dress, sends it to Instagram, because you know if there’s no picture, it didn’t happen.

As for tagging someone else, I don’t know who really likes to do these that haven’t already done this one, so if you’d like to play along, consider yourself tagged. 🙂

This quote by Max Ehrmann, has a wonderful message for us to take to heart. There are many times we get overwhelmed with so many activities, demands and requests to do something for others, and yes, daily problems of all kinds.

It’s important to slow down occasionally, take time for yourself, and unwind a bit. We are all individuals, with varied lives to lead wherever we live, and we should honor ourselves, too. We can be of more help to others if we first take care of our own spiritual, mental, and physical health. Take a break from distractions, maybe meditate, relax and breathe in the peace of letting go. We are important, too.

***

Leaving this challenge open to those who want to participate.
