EACH NEW DAY,,,,,,,

Each new day is as important as the last.  Sometimes we do not value the day that we have just had.   We belittle its importance.  How can we go on to a new day,  if we did not celebrate the day that we just had? 
I guess we can go back to the title of this blog.  We must make every day count.  It is the life we are leading and we do not know if it could be our last.  That statement sounds a bit maudlin, but, it is true.   CELEBRATE THE TIME THAT WE HAVE!!!!

"There comes a time in your life when you walk away from the drama and people who create it.  You surround yourself with people who make you laugh.  Forget the bad and focus on the good.  Love the people that treat you right, pray for the ones who don't.  LIFE IS TOO SHORT TO BE ANYTHING BUT HAPPY.  Falling down is a part of life, getting back up is living."

LESSONS LEARNED

I came across a quote today, from A. A. Milne's character, Winnie The Pooh.  The quote reminds me, why this book and its characters, have always been favorites of my children.

"If ever there is a tomorrow when we're not together...There is something you must always remember.  You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think, but the most important thing is, Even if we are apart...I'll always be with you."

ISN'T LIFE AMAZING?

Isn't life, just amazing!!!!  Sometimes we forget, that there will be things that "rattle your cage", "push your buttons", and "rock your boat".
If it doesn't happen, well then you know that you are either numb, or dead!!!!

GIVING/RECEIVING

"The fastest way to receive is to give, because giving starts the reciprocal action of receiving.  We all receive according to how much we give.  Give the best of you, everywhere you got.  Give a smile, Give thanks, Give kindness, Give love.
Your giving should be a giving without expectation of return--a giving for the sheer joy of it."

REFLECTING ON FRIENDS

I have just been pondering the signifigance of Friendship, how important friends are, to our day to day life.

"A slender acquaintance with the world must convince every man that actions, not words, are the true criterion of the attachment of Friends."
                                                  -----George Washington-----

In today's modern speak:  "we talk the talk, but don't walk the walk"

In consideration, we should cherish our friends! 

"A friend is always loyal, and a brother is born to help in time of need."
                               Proverbs 17:17

BEGINNING A NEW MONTH

Today is the start of a new month.  Why not the start of a new day and a new attitude!

"No one is in control of your HAPPINESS but you; therefore, you have the power to change anything about yourself or your life that you want to change."
