A is for April Full


April Full it will be for I am joining Arlee’s A to Z Blogging Challenge! I will be posting daily for each letter of the alphabet except on Sundays. It is an s.t.r.e.t.c.h for me but I just would like to have some fun! Come join me in here or join the challenge too for the whole month of April!

Now let’s bring that A word — AGELAST which means someone who never laughs.

Uhuh don’t you think there is something wrong with that word? Shouldn’t it be Agefast? Without laughter we will age fast!

Laughter can make our heart and soul stay young. Yes it is the best anti-ageing medicine.

Laughter is a gift. Yes we can give one.

Laughter is salvation. Yes we can save someone’s day.

Laughter is an expression of happiness. Yes we can be happy, with an attitude of gratitude.

Yes our heart and soul can be happy because God gave us a gift of salvation!

Now please let me share with you an A word to be happy about — AWARD. I got another Perfect Poet Award! How can I not be happy with that? Thank you so much Jingle and Luna! Can I give both of you a Superperfect Poet Award?

Thank you too to everyone who smiled and appreciated my week 40 entry                 — The Popcorn in Us.

For week 41,  I would like to nominate Moonlight and Dreamz for her powerful poem Earthquake. I hope she is happy!

Look how cutesy the Perfect Poet Award of week 40!

Spring back to life

Cast spells with your magic wand

Agelast, make them laugh!

Shall we now disperse cheer and laughter?  Even God has a sense of humor else how could this big butt, flat nosed and thick skinned creature came to life? Of course I am not talking about myself but the hippopotamus!

Awesome day to everyone! There won’t be BYE today because letter B is for tomorrow!

  1. As one who likes a good practical joke, this day is made for us! It’s so true about laughter. Sometimes it’s all we have in the face of adversity. Great post.

  2. Great to find your blog through the A-Z.
    Yeah, can’t laugh at earthquakes really her in CA, but I appreciate the sentiment. Then again, sometime’s it’s better to laugh than cry, and they’re not that far apart.

      Earthquakes here too but I don’t want it to control me and tremble in fear each day.

      Laughter and tears sometimes do well together too. Yesterday I just had one and it felt wonderful — it is always wonderful when born out of goodness…
      Wishing you wonderful moments 🙂

  3. I love your site and as I browsed your blog I decided to award you the Creative Blog Award.

    Go to http://astorybookworld.blogspot.com/p/awards.html and pick up your award.

  5. Hart Says:

    I am totally with you on the laughter thing! And not only do we agefast with no laughter, I the people who don’t laugh borelots *nods* Yup. I said it. They bore me.

  6. 🙂 Cool, yes, they made everyone happy.. beaming with joy..

    Your joyous Haiku *thumbs up*…

    P.P.S or P.S.S

    Your post made me think of a song I learned as a child. I loved it! This was my favourite ‘phonics’ song. Here’s Cookie Monster for ya! (6.6 Million hits says I’m not the only one liking it 🙂 )

  9. Debbie Says:

    You are fearless and awesome and amazing . . .and ageless! 🙂 You are going to have fun with this and I’m praying God helps you keep your sense of humor through it all! 🙂

    • bendedspoon Says:

      I am now trying to figure out why my tears fall. Oh yes I need all those prayers and I’m touched by your support since then.

      I am so excited with this one that I have joined right away just to have fun and when I checked the sites, most are book authors. Oh no, what have I gotten myself into again? But since I am in already, I’ll just make the most out of it.

      Love you Deb 🙂

  10. Mercy Says:

    It would be a very sad world for one who never laughs. I never knew there was a word specifically for it so thankyou for teaching me something new. Great start to the challenge! I look forward to reading more 🙂

  11. Dafeenah Says:

    Laughter is truly the best medicine and I learned a new word. Best of luck during the challenge. I look forward to reading your posts this month.


  12. Off to a great start. Since mine is a humor blog, I hope to not meet any AGELAST people. 🙂

    I am on wordpress at http://irisinbloom.wordpress.com
    My blog is mainly poetry, but I also just post my musings. Hope to keep linking up with such good poetry as yours.

    • bendedspoon Says:

      I really appreciate your presence in here. Please check also Jingle Poetry in the side bar and meet great poets and yes share your poems too!
      Blessings to you 🙂

  14. irisdeurmyer Says:

    I learned something new from your post. Agelast. Great blog.

  15. Super award much deserved! Sweet poem on the challenge, laughing is a treasure … let us all laugh and have fun! Agelastos in Greek means someone who doesn’t smile, so I guess that might have something to do with the Greek here 🙂 All together lovely post!

    • bendedspoon Says:

      Looks like it originate from Agelastos! Thanks for sharing that one Blaga, I’m learning.

      Blessings to you and your support is very much appreciated! 🙂

  16. Very nice post. I think I’ll skip the challenge myself – still challenged with post-a-day 2011! As for God’s sense of humor, I agree His is the best. Just consider the platypus. If that’s not funny, I don’t know what is. 🙂 Peace, Linda

    • bendedspoon Says:

      Thank you Linda. Praying that my excitement won’t wear out and finish this one up to the end without being an agelast!

      God provided us with so many things to smile about and all we need is to appreciate 🙂

  17. lunawitch15 Says:

  19. Arlee Bird Says:

    Happy A to Z April!
