We love LEGO

We love LEGO in my house

 

We love LEGO in my house ….at any given time of the day you will find LEGO in my TV room and scatter through my house.

A midnight run to the toilet can end in pain when your foot connects with a tiny little piece of LEGO!

BUT I think LEGO is one of the best toys you can buy your child – it keeps them busy for hours and it is worth the pain of stepping on little LEGO bricks every second!

Clever LEGO ad - Imaginative LEGO

 

 LEGO ads by FCB Johannesburg showing that kids might not necessarily need elaborate kits, and what a simple LEGO brick design might look like through the eyes of a child. Very cool!

Enjoy your LEGO days with your children!

“At such a moment it is not the physical pain which hurts the most (and this applies to adults as much as to punished children); it is the mental agony caused by the injustice, the unreasonableness of it all.”
 

 

Terrible as it was, Viktor Frankl’s experience in Auschwitz reinforced what was already one of his key ideas.
Life is not primarily a quest for pleasure, as Freud believed, or a quest for power, as Alfred Adler taught, but a quest for meaning.

The greatest task for any person is to find meaning in his or her life. Frankl saw three possible sources for meaning:
a] in work (doing something significant)
b] in love (caring for another person)
c] and in courage during difficult times.

Suffering in and of itself is meaningless; we give our suffering meaning by the way in which we respond to it. At one point, Frankl writes that a person “may remain brave, dignified and unselfish, or in the bitter fight for self-preservation he may forget his human dignity and become no more than an animal.” He concedes that only a few prisoners of the Nazis were able to do the former, “but even one such example is sufficient proof that man’s inner strength may raise him above his outward fate.”

Finally, Frankl’s most enduring insight, one that I have called on often in my own life and in countless counseling situations: Forces beyond your control can take away everything you possess except one thing, your freedom to choose how you will respond to the situation. You cannot control what happens to you in life, but you can always control what you will feel and do about what happens to you.

Hallo all, I came across this fantastic party idea – and I just need to share this with you!

To read the original blog please visit : http://thecraftingchicks.com/page/7

 When the guests arrived, the door was covered with this “Puppy Shop” sign. 

 

 

When the boys arrived, they first stopped at the Puppy Shop where they chose their puppy and filled out their puppy adoption certificate. 

And then all the clever snacks! Love it!

And all the happy new puppy owners!
