Today is Important

What you do today is important because you are exchanging a whole day of your life for it! I suggest we find ways to do good each day. When this day is gone it is in the books, lost forever unless we do good to others then that day will be remembered by those we did good for.

I have a few ideas to add good deeds to our everyday life.

1. A friendly smile and a sincere hello goes along way.
2. A card or call just to let someone know you are thinking of them brings great joy.
3. Donate some time to a charity.
4. Take time to listen to someone who needs to talk.
5. Give friends a true and sincere compliment, something you truly admire about them.
6. Don't be quick to judge others, we don't know what others are going through.
7. Hold the door open for someone, I always love when someone does it for me it makes me feel
8. Pray for someone who is going through a tough situation.

I would love to hear your ideas on this subject.

Until next time, enjoy the weather, play in the rain, tell everyone you love that you love them and live fully.

Words of Encouragement!

Everyone needs an instant cheer you up kind of saying, a mantra! A piece of wisdom you can use when you are feeling down. Here are a few of my favorite:

It is never to late to be what we might have been. George Eliot

In the end it is not the years in your life, its the life in your years! Abraham Lincoln

Friendship doubles joys and halves grief! Unknown

The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or heard, but must be felt with the heart...Helen Keller

Experience is the name we give our mistakes...Oscar Wilde

This too, shall pass...Unknown

If your success is not on your own terms, if it looks good to the world but does not feel good in your heart, it is not success at all....Anna Quindlen

So if you need a pick me up, feel free to use one of these as your mantra! If you have one, feel free to leave it to me in my comments!

Have a great spring day!

Spring is Here!

Aww! Sweet Spring! Flowers starting to bloom, birds singing and people are just generally in a better mood! I hung some bird feeders and have a whole family of red birds visiting my deck each day! They are really beautiful to watch. The hummingbird feeders are up but no takers yet, but I know they are on their way!
Me & hubby been trying to walk at night and seen 2 full moons this week and last night a sight to behold just stars galore! What a great God we have to create all this for us to enjoy!
The best is yet to come...Thunderstorms!!!!!!!!!!I love them and am fascinated by their power and beauty. Yes Spring has Sprung! So kick off those shoes and run barefoot through the grass and plant as many flowers as you can and enjoy them all summer long with your family and friends around the grill and hanging out!!!!!!!!!!! Until next time!!! Enjoy!
