A cute story I loved :-)

Little Fanny Desmond was a dear child, and, like a good many other little children, she liked to do whatever she saw the grown people do.
She would listen with great interest when she saw her mother use the telephone. She was especially surprised when her mother ordered things, and later in the day they would be brought to the house.
"I wish I had a telephone of my own," she said to her papa. "Mama just puts her mouth up to that funny thing, and gets whatever she asks for. Yesterday she asked somebody to send us ice-cream for dinner, and sure enough, it came."
Papa laughed. "It does seem a very convenient thing," he said. "I will try to arrange one for you." So papa took a horn which had been put away in a closet and hung it up where Fanny could talk into it. "There, that shall be your own private telephone," he said.
"Now, shall I get whatever I ask for?" said Fanny.
"Not if you ask for impossible things," replied her papa.
"But what are impossible things?" asked Fanny.
"Well," laughed papa, "I think if you should ask for the moon you would not get it."
"But I don't want the moon," said Fanny.
"Ask for something before I go down-town," said papa.
Fanny thought a moment, and then spoke up quite distinctly:
"Please send me some peppermints, and some new shoes for my doll, and a bunch of pansies for my mama, and a new bicycle for my papa, and--and--that's all this time. Good-bye."
"That's a very good order," said her papa, "but kiss me good-bye, for I must be off." 
About half an hour later the front door-bell rang. Very soon the maid appeared with a package directed to Miss Fanny Desmond. In great excitement, Fanny opened it. It was a box of peppermints. The child's delight was great, but when, in another half hour, there came a bundle which proved to be a new pair of shoes for her doll, she was too happy for words. But that surprise was hardly over when another package was brought her. She opened it in great excitement, and behold there was a bunch of beautiful pansies.
"They are for you, mama," she cried, "and now everything has come but papa's new bicycle."
Just then she looked out of the window, and there was her papa coming up the drive on a fine new wheel. She rushed down to meet him, exclaiming, as she threw herself into his arms:
"Oh, papa, papa, I did get everything; my telephone is beautiful, and the man at the other end is just lovely!"
"Ah," said papa, "I am delighted he is so satisfactory."

My Dubai counterpart :-)

Life is magical...
Always there are definitely few folks who think exactly like you on a topic...
Sumwhere on blogspot, I read a post by a girl from  Dubai ..
and it felt like "hey..I would have written this "
"Here go the lines...
I am a day dreamer!
Yes and i m proud to be one. 
i love visualizing a fantasy world which may or may not be true.
i like seeing situations go my way and in my dream world i dont have to fight it out with the real world.
In my dream world i can be barbie, snow white, the President of United states of america or even be the Radio jockey at the local radio station.
I love dreaming maybe more than i love sleeping because i can even sleep in my dreams!
As a kid my dreams seemed so true to life , like as if they were not dreams but actually taking place.
i believed in my dreams even if nobody else did and i knew that my dreams would come true one day. But these dreams took place while i was asleep.
My day dreams are more at work when im bored, or dull or in the blues. i like imagining myself on a beach with my loved one( now how i wish that would happen)...without anyone to disturb us...
sometimes.. i feel my dreams are also a reflection of what could have happened!
so until next time in going to keep dreaming.. and off i go to paris....."

Tinkerbell & Selena Gomez- made me smile todayyyyyyy :-)

A song from Tinkerbell by Selena Gomez  .... so much like what I believe in :-)

Watch all the flowers
Dance with the wind
Listen to snowflakes
Whisper your name

Feel all the wonder
Lifting your dreams
You can fly

Fly to who you are
Climb upon your star
When you believe
You'll find your wings
Fly to your heart

Touch every rainbow
Painting the sky
Look at the magic
Glide through your life

A sprinkle of pixie dust
Circles the night
You can fly

Fly to who you are
Climb upon your star
When you believe
You'll find your wings

Everywhere you go
Your soul will find a home
You'll be free
To spread your wings
Fly, you can fly to your heart

Rise to the heights
Of all you can be
Soar on the hope
Of marvelous things

Fly to who you are
Climb upon your star
When you believe
You'll find your wings

Everywhere you go
Your soul will find a home
You'll be free
To spread your wings
Fly, you can fly to your heart

You may be right
I may be crazy.
But it just may be a lunatic you're looking for.
- - - Billy Joel, "You May Be Right"
You've got to get up every morning with a smile on your face
And show the world all the love in your heart
Then people gonna treat you better
You're gonna find, yes you will
That you're beautiful as you feel.
- - - Carole King, "Beautiful"
Winter, spring, summer or fall
All you have to do is call
And I'll be there,
You've got a friend.
- - - James Taylor
You say you want, diamonds on a ring of gold
You say you want, your story to remain untold
All the promises we made
From the cradle to the grave
When all I want is you.
- - - U2, "All I Want is You"
You know a dream is like a river
Ever changing as it flows.
And a dreamer's just a vessel
That must follow where it goes.
Trying to learn from what's behind you
And never knowing what's in store
Makes each day a constant battle
Just to stay between the shores.
- - - Garth Brooks, "The River"
When you're weary, feeling small
When tears are in your eyes, I'll dry them all
I'm on your side when times get rough
And friends just can't be found
Like a bridge over troubled water I will lay me down
- - - Simon and Garfunkel. "Bridge Over Troubled Water"
Unforgettable, that's what you are
Unforgettable though near or far
Like a song of love that clings to me
How the thought of you does things to me
Never before has someone been more
Unforgettable in every way
And forever more, that's how you'll stay
That's why, darling, it's incredible
That someone so unforgettable
Thinks that I am unforgettable too
- - - Irving Gordon, "Unforgettable"
There's beauty in the silver singing river
There's beauty in the sunrise in the sky
But none of these and nothing else can match the beauty
That I remember in my true love's eyes
- - -Bob Dylan, "Tomorrow is a Long Time"
To dream the impossible dream,
To reach the unreachable star!
- - - Joe Darion
Summers going fast
Nights growing colder
Children growing up
Old friends growing older

Freeze this moment a little bit longer
Make each sensation a little bit stronger
- - - Rush "Time Stand Still"
It was your song that made me sing
It was your song that gave me wings
It was your light that shined
guiding my heart to find
This place where I belong
It was your song
Dreams can come true
With God's great angels like you
- - -Garth Brooks "Your Song"
I woke up this morning,
Smiled at the rising sun,
Three little birds,
Sat on my doorstep,
Singing sweet songs
- - -Bob Marley "Three Little Birds"
If the future's looking dark
We're the ones who have to shine
If there's no one in control
We're the ones who draw the line
Though we live in trying times
We're the ones who have to try
Though we know that time has wings
We're the ones who have to fly.
- - -Rush "Everyday Glory"
I've seen fire and I've seen rain
I've seen sunny days that I thought would never end
I've seen lonely times when I could not find a friend
But I always thought that I'd see you again
- - - James Taylor "Fire and Rain"
I want to stand with you on a mountain
I want to bathe with you in the sea
I want to lay like this forever
Until the sky falls down on me
- - -Savage Garden, "Truly Madly Deeply"
Happy days are here again,
The skies above are clear again:
Let us sing a song of cheer again,
Happy days are here again!
- - - Jack Yellen "Happy Days Are Here Again"
Don't want to close my eyes
I don't want to fall asleep
'Cause I'd miss you, baby, and I don't want to miss a thing.
'Cause even when I dream of you,
The sweetest dream would never do
I'd still miss you baby, and I don't want to miss a thing.
- - - Aerosmith "Don't want to miss a thing"
And if I can't be with you I would rather have a different face
And if I can't be near you I would rather be adrift in space
And if the gods desert us I would burn this chapel into flames
And if someone tries to hurt you I would put myself in your place
- - - Neil Finn "Try Whistling This"
