“I had to grow to love my body. I did not have a good self-image at first. Finally it occurred to me, I’m either going to love me or hate me. And I chose to love myself. Then everything kind of sprung from there. Things that I thought weren’t attractive became sexy. Confidence makes you sexy.”

EDITORIAL - We're Really "Kidding"

Hi Everyone!

In our 2019 Scribbles Readers Poll, we asked you to tell us what you liked best about our website. Although there were votes for all the things we feature, topping the list were pets followed by kids. 

Seems anything to do with pets or kids brightens your day and since Scribbles is all about making you feel happy, we have lots of new posts about both for you to check out.

In fact we have so many new posts they wouldn’t all fit on one “edition” of Scribbles. To make sure you don’t miss a single thing, we’ve divided the new stuff into two groups. Today’s new edition is mostly about kids and the second group all about pets will launch Friday. And we’re not talking about just cats and dogs….no, no. We’ve got a section all about some amazing friends and the unique pets they have. You’ll see what we mean in a few days. 

Watch for our new Scribbles Big Shots - larger sized photos for you to enjoy plus our pal Kathryn Stengel shares her views on grieving and Stepping Into Her Brother's Shoes.

Get ready to feel like a kid again, as we reveal what our young Scribbles friends have been up to.

but if he is peaceful, loving and fearless then he is in truth called wise.”
