Your challenge today is to acknowledge and thank those that are serving our country(ies) past and present. Without them where would we be?

Thanked our SIL and his son for their service on FB. Took my World War II Navy veteran to Applebees for lunch and bought him two packs of SF hard candies and a word search book.

Your challenge is to acknowledge and thank those that are serving our country past and present.

Challenge accepted --- I thanked my ex husband and dear friend. Today makes me think of my precious Papa, who passed on a couple of years ago. God bless America!

Your challenge today is to connect with those around you. Yes, you can even do this if you don't leave your home. Use the phone, then internet or write a note. Create a ripple effect of positiveness today by smiling at someone, complimenting someone, offering encouragement, just by letting them know someone cares. Make it your goal to connect with as many people as you can today. Have a fantastic day!

Hugs,
Wanda

Who has been on your mind of late? Having you been meaning to call someone or see them? Have you wondered about someone that you haven't heard from in a long while?

Make today the day that you reconnect with that person. We are often given nudges in our consciousness about people and it happens for a reason. Make today the day that you put those nudges as a priority. There are so many ways of communicating even without leaving your home. Take the time to greet those you see today, even with a smile as you pass. Your smile might just be what makes a person's day.

We are important to others just as others are important to us.

I just read today's challenge, but fulfilled it earlier today when I called my cousin Lola, who has been on my mind the past couple of weeks.

Choose two fellow sparkpeople and visit their pages or blogs and leave some encouragement. Is there someone that you have been meaning to talk to and haven't yet? Let them know today that you are thinking of them. Greet everyone that you see today, even if it's with only a smile. You never know how much your smile alone can brighten someones day.

Don't forget to talk to yourself with positive affirmations too.

A day doesn't go by that I don't reach out to someone even if it is just eye contact and a smile.
That may be the only 'contact' that person might have that day.
Have had people thanked me for just being kind to them.

Your challenge for today is to connect with one person that you have not connected with before. In other words the stranger you meet in the store, on the street, visit a new blog, make it someone that you have never said hello to before. Put on your smile and leave some encouraging words.
Create a ripple effect of positiveness.

Your challenge today is to connect with all that you see today. Maybe its just giving a smile, maybe it's a hug or even a friendly hello.
If you aren't out and about today...then take a few minutes and say hello to someone via the internet.

Spread some positive energy today...you just never no how far and wide your simply gestures can flow.

Take the time today to connect with those around you. Has someone been on your mind of late, have you felt that little nudge within to contact someone or having you had someone keep coming to mind. Take the time today to call them, write them or even message them on the internet. You might be just the person they need to talk to today to lift them up.

Visit 2 blogs and leave some encouragement.

Have a great day.

Just had a nice long talk with Margaret, she'd called to see how Clenton is doing, it was so nice to talk as we haven't been walking since this happened, but told her if she gets out and about to stop by for coffee, I am not comfortable yet being gone for any length of time, maybe next week.

Limber up those fingers and get your voice box working ...it's Talking Tuesday. Even if you can't get out among people today, you can still participate.

Take the time today to greet those around you with a cheery word and a smile. If you are indoors then use your computer to contact some fellow sparkies or friends and let them know you are thinking of them.

Where ever you are today, pass along some positive energy, create a ripple effect that just keeps on going.

Lots of hugs,

Feb 11 Talking Tuesday!

Your challenge today is to connect with at least 3 Sparkpeople bloggers and to reach out with a smile or a friendly word to everyone that you see today. Start a wave of positive energy flowing. You never know just how much a kind word or even a smile will travel. You might be exactly what that person needed to hear or see today to turn their day around.

Hugs,
Wanda

Your challenge today is to talk to at least 5 people. You can talk face to face, by email, by phone, or via the internet with blogging or posts. Your goal is to leave them feeling positive.

Thanks for the giggle Cookie...you can even greet people while at home. Use the computer and say hello to someone, call someone on the phone, or even write a letter to someone. They all are forms of connecting. Hope you enjoyed the challenge today.

Hugs.

Hmm. I am new at this. I had expected to be home alone all day...which left me to smile and say hello to..............ME.
Now, instead of having my husband do the shopping while he is out, I guess I will go.
As an aside, I notice whenever I make a definite effort to greet people with a smile and hello that I only run into people who will not look up. I discovered that smiling first doesn't work for me...........I have to do the 'Hello' part first. (Because physically running into them is evidently rude?? Just kidding, I haven't resorted to that... emoticon yet.)

If this was your last day, how would you spend it?

Talking Tuesday time again!
Your challenge today is to see how many people you can say hello to today. Take the time to thank those that serve you in some way and be that blessing in someone else's life. Cause a ripple of positiveness to spread.

Have a fun day.

Hugs,
Wanda

Actually did this today. On my way to the Starfish Project reveal press conference, I called a friend with whom I hadn't spoken in awhile to catch up and let her know I was thinking of her...using a head phone...and for me, that's LESS distracting to listening to the talk shows or rock music - then I end up yelling at the radio! Particularly as our government has closed down today...Geesh!

When is the last time you talked to members of your family, your friends or your neighbors?

Is there someone on your mind that you have been thinking of and keep meaning to give them a call or connect with them?

Take the time today to connect. You have no guarantee that you will have tomorrow, so don't let today slip by without taking action.


Have a great day.
Hugs,
Wanda

Wanda, it is so true. I see that every day in my work.

Though I hadn't read this, I usually will call my family in other time zones, and sometimes in my time zone, on my drives home...using an earphone. I find it less distracting that radio!

Always love this challenge.

Time sometimes has a habit of slipping away on us. We don't get "around to it" , we "run out of time" all excuses that we have used at one time or another in our lives. This past weekend really brought home to me personally how quickly things can change. We go from thinking we have lots of time to do something to realizing that life can change in an instant.

Take the time today to talk and connect to those around you, especially your loved ones. We have no guarantee that will have the opportunity tomorrow. If someone has been on your mind and you've been meaning to call them....do it today.

Hugs,
Wanda

Thanks for the challenge, Wanda. I think about doing this each day but never get to those blogs. Will do it today.
