The ANSWER to Theme for Thursday - June 11

I had a feeling this would be an easy one to guess...
My point of last week's Theme for Thursday was an interesting fact...At work we were discussing the meaning behind "Ring Around the Rosie" and I thought, WOW...
That's my Theme for the week...So...Here is the meaning behind...



RING AROUND THE ROSIE...



Ring around the rosy

A pocketful of posies

"Ashes, Ashes"

We all fall down!

Ring-a-Ring o'Rosies

A Pocket full of Posies

"A-tishoo! A-tishoo!"

We all fall Down!

WHICH VERSION DID YOU GROW UP WITH???

I grew up with the first one and did you hear the history around that riddle/song is related to a fire and death i think?

I grew up with the first one - but I've heard the second one before! To answer Terronda's question - I'm pretty sure it was how the identified the black plaque (although I could be getting the disease wrong). There would be sores with rings around them - and that was a pretty sure sign they'd die. Bodies were burned - thus the ashes!

Happiness...

"Tell everyone you know: "My happiness depends on me, so you're off the hook." And then demonstrate it. Be happy, no matter what they're doing. Practice feeling good, no matter what. And before you know it, you will not give anyone else responsibility for th e way you feel—and then, you'll love them all. Because the only reason you don't love them, is because you're using them as your excuse to not feel good."
