#All New Writer’s Quote Challenge/7 – I Believe in Laughter

The Writer’s Quote Challenge is a weekly event. Each Thursday, the hostess(es) Bernadette & Jacqueline will post a weekly prompt.

Either make up your own sayings or use a quote from a famous author that you find gives you inspiration.

Here is Bernadette’s offering for this week just in time for Christmas:

“Though I’ve grown old, the bell still rings for me as it does for all who truly believe.”  Christ Van Allsburg, The Polar Express.

I believe there is good in the world, we just need to stop reading about all the bad things and stay positive.

Here’s my Quote.

I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles. Audrey Hepburn

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Peace, Health and Blessings to you all

Daily Picture Prompt 17 – Busy Santa – Pantoum Poetry

Write a poem or story using this picture. Link back to the post above from your blog.

Busy Santa

His glasses are nearly falling off his nose
Santa reading his Christmas list
He is going to find out who’s been naughty
And who’s been very nice

Santa reading his Christmas list
Who’s not getting a gift for Christmas
And who’s been very nice
His head is ringing from concentration

Who’s not getting a gift for Christmas
He had better go a feed his reindeer’s
His head is ringing from concentration
Fresh air will clear his aching head

He had better go a feed his reindeer’s
If he wants them to work tonight
Fresh air will clear his aching head
He hopes they have been behaving

If he wants them to work tonight
He is going to find out who’s been naughty
He hopes they have been behaving
His glasses are nearly falling off his nose
