I've Gotta Crow!

It's just that I am what I am
And I'm me!

When I look at myself
And I see in myself
All the wonderful things that I see
If I'm pleased with myself
I have ev'ry good reason to be.
I've gotta crow!

If I were a very ordinary
Ev'ry day thing,
I'd never be heard cock-a-doodling
'Round like a bird!

I've gotta crow!
"would you crow and let me go back to my nap??"


I'm really a rare thing,
Such a fair thing,
I can't keep still!
I'm bursting with pride
And I just couldn't keep it inside
If I tried so...

That I've gotta let go and crow!

" They may crow, but I do all of the work!!"


(lyrics from musical Peter Pan)

Hope you all have something to feel good about and to crow about!

I love them all and I put two of the pictures on Pinterest. I hope that's okay with you because everyone there should see them too.

Crowing about waking up to another day to enjoy. We have a weekend of rain (no snow, sigh) so lots of indoor things to do and may crow about them in a future blog post too.
