I just have received the
My sister sent it to me from Canada...
Apart from the sweetness of the card (that made me cry an ocean - I don't know if at this moment I have enough water in my body, I think I am not going to pee for a week or so...), she sent me a book...
It is a compilation of quotes and thoughts by Jim Henson, the creator of The Muppets, and compiled/edited by his daughter Cheryl.
The book is awesome, beautiful and GREEN!
The title is like that song from Kermit
The introduction of the book says:
"We chose to use it as the title of this bookI so much love my sister...
[regarding using the song as the title of the book]
because its lyrics capture not only the feelings of Kermit the Frog but a universal message that it's okay to be different,
to embrace what makes you special,
and to be proud of it".
What a better way to tell me so many things?
Well, just if I post here the content of the card will you see why I cried like I don't remember crying in a long, long time.
Here you have the video of the song and the lyrics...
Thanks millions Cala-Sito...

TITLE: It's Not Easy Being Green
It's not that easy being green
Having to spend each day the color of the leaves
When I think it could be nicer being red, or yellow or gold
Or something much more colorful like that
It's not easy being green
It seems you blend in with so many other ordinary things
And people tend to pass you over 'cause you're
Not standing out like flashy sparkles in the water
Or stars in the sky
But green's the color of Spring
And green can be cool and friendly-like
And green can be big like an ocean, or important
Like a mountain, or tall like a tree
When green is all there is to be
It could make you wonder why, but why wonder why
Wonder, I am green and it'll do fine, it's beautiful
And I think it's what I WANT TO BE!
