“If you’re going to be able to look back on something and laugh about it, you might as well laugh about it now.”

"The small actions you take now, no matter how insignificant they may seem, can have profound effects that you may never know about."

"Don't be afraid to give your best at what seemingly are small jobs. Every time you conquer one it makes you that much stronger. If you do the little jobs well, the big ones will tend to take care of themselves." - Dale Carnegie

    The happiness of your life depends upon the quality of your thoughts; therefore guard accordingly.

    If I could catch a rainbow
    I would do it just for you.
    And share with you it's beauty
    On the days you're feeling blue.
    If I could build a mountain
    You could call your very own.
    A place to find serenity
    A place to be alone.
    If I could take your troubles
    I would toss them in the sea.
    But all these things I'm finding
    are impossible for me,
    I cannot build a mountain
    Or catch a rainbow fair
    But let me be...what I know best,
    a friend that's always there.

    Thought I'd drop by to say hello and have a wonderful weekend. Sending you lots of hugs too.

    It is so good to have a day off. I am resting right now and will do some housework in a short time. All I did after work yesterday was sleep. My 4 days a week, 20 hours has increased to 6 days a week, 40 hours. The extra money is very helpful, however, I am tired too. I am very happy to say that I have one more pound to go and I will be minus 20 pounds since starting work (9 weeks ago).
