Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss (and me)

>> March 2, 2012

I like Dr Suess, I won’t tell a lie.
We share the same birthday, we’re tight him and I. 
A creative creature, a word maker is he
When I grow up, just like him I’ll be.

He has a funny way to make us all think
His thinker is funny, combined with some ink
But funnier still, ‘tween ink jot you read
Squeezed in by the tittle, you’ll see a great creed.

Go places, be someone,
Try something new.
Have a big heart.
Now that’s a good start.

Be a Who on a speck,
Save your people from heck.
Don’t think you’re too small,
Don’t think it at all.

There are things you can find,
If you don’t stay behind.
Think out of the box,
Be smart like a fox.

Here’s the moral that sticks in my heart when I read,
When my thinker has thunked, and I truly take heed:
God made only one you, with a purpose and plan
No one else can be you,  now isn’t that grand?

So with a tip of my hat, I’ll close with a smile,
As Seuss once said in his Seussian style:
 “Today you are You, that is truer than true.
There is no one alive who is Youer than You.”

"For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord..." Jeremiah 29:11

What a tribute by one who is truer than true,
Who could have done this better than you?

Chocolate's the way,
To start your birth day,
Dr. Seuss would agree,
I think so would he.

LOVED IT and so much fun to read!

Have a Seussy day! : )

May peace joy and blessings abound on this day
That marketh your entry to a world dark and gray
The day you were born was a day of delight
And every day since has been happy and bright.

(My quickie attempt to be Seussian.

It's too early for me to try to Dr Seuss but I do believe you might be related to him somewhere along the way. Hope you had a wonderful birthday. Upward and onward to an exciting new year...
