I'm glad to be able to use the books I have to encourage people. Everybody gets down adn that's why I figure once a week is good and sometimes I add things in between. Tomorrow will likely be the day for the 2nd week of May's encouragements, so be on the lookout. :)

Hi Sheri
I am human (sometimes LOL) and I try and be here at least once a week too, but lately I am failing. I wish I was full of encouragement but tonight I am just not.
I cannot believe this group has grown so big. 351 members, that's a lot of bad backs to deal with ha ha

Anyhow, just wanted to say hello, I need my own encouragement I usually pass on to come back full cirlce at myself tonight. Not good things going on in my head.
I even feel like i want to give up the group, it's been so long since I started...will contemplate on this.

HUGS Ember

I try to post them once each week, but I am human and fail sometimes. :)

Five Things I Am Thankful For:

the pain in my back - I still have feeling
the trouble with my breathing - I can still breathe
sleepiness caused by medications - I have medical treatment
the annoyance of parents - I still have family
a very tiny apartment - I have a place to live



Encouragements for Week One of May
THINGS TO BE HAPPY ABOUT from 14, 000 things to be happy about by Barbara Ann Kipfer
part of you always being a child
overcoming your inability to do basic math
the buzz of a bumble bee
ginkgo and willow trees
papaya with lemon cream
a tight-wave sisal bag for knitting supplies
serendipitous plans
"A word to the wise is sufficent."
A place of secret magic where nature alone quietly renews itself
incurable enthusiasm
stripes and terries on the beach
construction aper
old-fashioned sock dolls
trampolines
pems
Santa's Village
Gothic Novels
huge dunes
doby stockings
strudy stew in white bowls
chemise-type sundresses
a stalled car catching
when the lights come up
the soothing winter winde in teh hemlocks
remembering when leaves were raked and jumped into
English-style breafasts and dinners in a riverside dining room
cable knit
things you don't have to work at to enjoy
feeling the damp freshness of a morning cool on your face
checking your fortunte-cookie message to see how it matches up with your mate's
French Mustard
getting a job
cheeks all aglow with the outdoors
two tremendous kettles of soup on a potbellied stove

from LISTS TO LIVE BY 3RD EDITION
It's Up To You...author unknown

ONE SONG can spark a moment
ONE FLOWER can wake the dream
ONE TREE can start a forest
ONE BIRD can herald spring.
ONE SMILE begins a friendship
ONE HANDCLASP lifts a soul
ONE STAR can guide a ship at sea
ONE WORD can frame the goal.
ONE VOTE can change a nation
ONE SUNBEAN lights a room
ONE CANDLE wipes out darkness
ONE LAUGH will conquer gloom.
ONE STEP must start each journey
ONE WORD must start each prayer
ONE HOPE will raise our spirits
ONE TOUCH can show you care.
ONE VOICE can speak with wisdom
ONE HEART can know what's true
ONE LIFE can make the difference.
It's up to you.

From THE BOOK OF QUESTIONS by Gregory Stock, PH.D.
Question
1. For a person you loved deeply, would you be willing to move to a distant country knowing there would be little chance of seeing your friends or family again?
2. Do you believe in ghosts or evil spirits? Would you be willing to spend a night alone in a remote house that is supposedly haunted?
3. If you were to die this evening with no opportunity to communicate with anyone, what would you most regret not having told someone? Why haven't you told them yet?
4. If you could spend one year in perfect happiness but afterward would remember nothing of the experience would you do so? If not, why not?

From WORDS FOR LIFE by Connie Harrison
Compssion is being in tune with oneself, the other person(s) and the whole world. It is goodness at its most intuitive and unreflective. It is a harmoney which opens itself and permits the flowing out of love towards others without asking any reward. David Brandon
