Let’s not waste any time at all. We’re going to kick off this week’s Author Tweets of the Week with a moving video.
This video is a great way to kick things off this week. So moving! Like I said on Facebook, if this doesn’t bring a tear to your eye and make you want to hug your Mom, either you’re heartless or your Mom was.
Groucho Marx has some wonderful lines. This one from @alphabetsuccess is one I actually hadn’t heard before. Nothing like throwing a zinger at someone and then kicking ’em when they’re down.
If you don’t follow @mattdusk and you enjoy being inspired, well what the heck are you doing?! His twitter feed is filled with tweets like this one.
You cannot always wait for the perfect time. Sometimes you must dare to jump.

This post makes me giggle every time I see it. I’m not sure exactly what it is
[god creating bees]Put a needle on its butt.
“Come on God, wha—“
Make its puke delicious.

These tweets have been around for a minute, but I just stumbled upon them this week. I got a good laugh out of them. Here’s a few more:
[creating octopus]GOD: Give it 8 super strong arms & hands
ANGEL: uh, we're out of bones..
GOD: 8 weird floppy arms w/ suction cup things

Well those were fun.
Here’s a more serious and practical tweet I enjoyed this week.

This is so true. If you’re too much of an asshole to love someone else because you want to be selfless, then love them because studies show you will live a happier, healthier, more productive life.
So there, you dicks, be nicer BECAUSE you’re a dick, not because you’re trying to be nice. You’ll benefit from it. (I bet you didn’t think someone could turn a spiritual message into a half-encouragement / half-rebuke of jerks. That’s what I do. I make the impossible possible.)
Now let’s do some dancing! It’s the weekend fools! Let loose! Kick back! Dance like this guy!
If you’re out of breath, then you’re doing it right. Great dancing.
Let’s wrap it up with this. I have a two-year old that is nearing three. She loves to read with us. I adore it. It’s amazing. read to your kids, friends!

And with that, have a wonderful weekend! My second child is approaching this world rapidly. He’s due anyway now and the next time we share tweets together it might be with spit up all over my keyboard.
Keep writing! Have a wonderful weekend.

Reading is a good way to spend quality time with your children.
I couldn’t agree more, Carolyn. I love that my oldest loves reading.
