Wow, it's Monday Morning and we've been given this day as a gift just for us to enjoy. We'll discover it's blessings and it's challenges, everything to keep us from being bored. LOL So I must say have a happy week, discoverying all the joys, blessings, surprises, and challenges it holds for you. Really, we have wo much to be grateful about.
Thought for today;
Greet everyone you meet with a warm smile. No matter how busy you are, don't rush enounters with co-workers, family and friends. Speak softly. Listen attentively. Act as if every conversation you have is the most important thing on your mind today. Look your children and your partner in the eyes when they talk to you. Stroke the cat, caress the dog. Lavish love on every living being you meet. See how different you feel at the end of the day.
Oh what a wonderful day...we are alive and given the gift of this day!! Plus it is a day of rest, as well as a day we get to worship the Lord!
Just wanted to say, “Have a great week.” If things have not been going as well as you like, you get a new beginning. And if they have been going well, you have an opportunity to inspire others with your successes.
This pass week I did not make a wise decision and this quote so expresses what I learned from my mistake:
“We achieve inner health only through forgiveness - the forgiveness not only of others but also of ourselves” Joshua Loth Liebman quotes
How are you do today. I am so happy it is Saturday. This week I had to keep doing my routine, however, I really have not been well. Still not felling so good, but feel I need to stop by.
We have a snow storm here. My daughter is all excited because she can go snow boarding. Our dogs have been enjoying playing in the snowâ€”it is funny watching them.
I am starting to eat an anti-inflammatory diet. I have noticed a 2 pound weight loss!! The Spark cardio chair exercise DVD has been good for me as is Leslie Sansome's DVD have been helping me too. This upcoming week I am doing the Spark 28 Boot Camp Day DVD.
Thought for today: â€śYou give but little when you give of your possessions. It is when you give of yourself that you truly give.â€ť Kahlil Gibran quotes
