    You are so right! We forget about the positive things in our life when we focus on the negative!

    Here I am complaining that I need to finish painting 3 walls, I feel frustration and alienation and for WHAT? I have a warm home, nice neighbours and my neighbourhood is virtually crime-free. How many can say that?

Thanks for the wake up call.

    Thank you for reminding me that I have so many things to be thankful for. I got out of bed this morning, I hugged my hubby & son, The sun shone (briefly) I didn't eat the dessert that I wanted. More counting blessing is called for.

Clearance Rack !

Tuesday, April 03, 2012

Please remember: If you're not being treated with love and respect, check your price tag. Perhaps you have marked your self down. It's you who tells people what you're worth by what you accept. Get off the clearance rack and get behind the glass where they keep the valuables! Learn to value yourself more! If you don't no one else will.

Hope this will help someone get off the CLEARANCE RACK!!!!!!! Life is good.

What is a Smile

Friday, March 30, 2012

What is a Smile?
A smile costs nothing, but gives so much.

It enriches those who receive it, without making poorer those who give.

It takes but a moment, but the memory of it sometimes lasts forever.

None is so rich or mighty that he can get along without it, and none is so poor but that he can be made rich by it.

A smile creates happiness in the home, fosters goodwill in business, and is the countersign of friendship.

It brings rest to the weary, cheer to the discouraged, sunshine to the sad, and it is nature's best antidote for trouble.

Yet it cannot be bought, begged, borrowed, or stolen, for it is something that is of no value to anyone until it is given away.

Some people are too tired to give you a smile. Give them one of yours, as none needs a smile so much as he who has no more to give.

A smile is contagious------let' start an epidemic !!!

Giving Thanks

Wednesday, November 25, 2009

In today's busy world, one can hardly find time to reflect upon the REAL meaning of this holiday season. From as early as Labor Day until after New Year's Day, holiday's are accompanied by incessant advertising abd unabashed commercialism. While this type of holiday may be beneficial to to the businesses who are pushing their goods, we need to remember some things that are frequently forgotten.

Football and turkey, fun with family, friends and neighbors, a house filled with excitemant, and jubilant children are certainly reasons we enjoy Thanksgiving. But this Thanksgiving I want to urge you to remember some things that are often overlooked whenwe are in the midst of a family celebration.......think of all the people who made you who you are. Remember your youth, for you will never regain it. Remember the simple things such as flying kutes and jumping in leaves, tire swings and climbing trees, riding your bike and long family drives......these are the things from which Thnaksgiving is made.

Most of all, let's remember those less fortunate than we and strive to make their Thanksgiving a time when they can reflect on their own good memories.

To ALL my Spark's friends, I am wishing you a safe and happy Thnaksgiving.

ATTITUDE everybody has ONE !

Friday, September 25, 2009

I recently read this in some of my counseling material and as I reflected on it's message I realized these truths apply to us all and I wanted to share it with those who stop by my Spark's Page.

We all need to be reminded constantly of the importance of ATTITUDE. It is impossible to underestimate the power of attitude upon daily living and the following is a wonderful example:

She is 92 years old, petite, well-poised, and proud. She is fully dressed each morning by 8:00am with her hair fashionably coifed, and her makeup perfectly applied, in spite of the fact she is legally blind.

Today she has moved to a nursing home. Her husband of 70yrs. recently passed away, making this move necessary.

After many hours of waiting patiently in the lobby of the nursing home, she smiled sweetly when told her room was ready. As she maneuvered her walker to the elevator, the nursing home employee gave her a visal descrition of her room, including the eyelet curtains that had been hung on her window.

"I love it," she stated with the enthusiasm of an eight-year-old having just been presented withn a new puppy.

The employee said, "Mrs. Jones, you haven't seen the room.....just wait." Then Mrs. Jones spoke these words......"That does not have anything to do with it......happiness is something you decide on ahead of time. Whether I like my room or not does not depend on how the furniture is arragned. It is how I arrange my mind. I have already decided to love it. It is a decision I make every morning when I wake up. I HAVE A CHOICE. I can spend the day in bed recounting the difficulty I have with the parts of my body that no longer work, or I can get out of bed and be thankful for the ones that do work.

Each day is a gift, and as long as my eyes open, I will focus on the new day and all of the happy memories I have stored away....just for this time in my life.
........................................
.......................... ..........................................
........................................

I think this story sents a wonderful message to us all.......Age is like a bank account. YOU WITHDRAW FROM WHAT YOU HAVE ALREADY PUT IN. We all have difficulties in our life that we can dwell upon and complain about, or we can choose each and every day to be thankful for the blessings we have and for the fact that God has given us another day to share with others.

    I loved reading your blog even though I had heard the story before. And after looking at your Spark Page I wondered to myself why you have chosen to no longer share your outlook on life with blogs now and then. The last one you wrote was in 2009 -- why not share some more with us?

    What a wonderful lesson for all of us. Yes, we can determine our attitude towards the events happening each and every day. Thanks so much for sharing this. It was a great inspiration to me on a day that was not so positive. emoticon

    That is so true. I dear friend from exercise (only 89 yrs old) used to tell us she thanked God for every day that she woke up and got out of bed. She sounds so much like that little lady. Thank you for reminding me of Mamie. ((HUGS)) Linda Kay
