Good example!

Thursday, July 19, 2012

The first great gift we can bestow on others is a good example.-Thomas Morell

It is so important to (me) be a good example for others, yet I know I fall way short of the mark... the important thing is to keep striving to be a good role model... I too, have role models, yes, even at my age.... :)

    What a great quote! The first step in making a change in any area is to want to. Very thought provoking. Have a super day!

    I keep debating whether I should get some potato chips. Then I read the labels and think "bad idea!" but I'd love to be able to eat some! But when I look at my belly roll, I dare not make it worse!

Imagination...

Tuesday, July 17, 2012

"One of the virtues of being very young is that you don't let the facts get in the way of your imagination."- Sam Levenson.

This is so very true! I see this all the time with my grandchildren and remember it with my children and students. Remember when we were young and didn't let little things like facts get in the way of our imagination? Now we have to focus of facts and realities, but sometimes, sometimes, it's nice to just let our imaginations go wild.... be a kid for a little while.... who knows what we might come up with!

Have a wonderful day...

    We have to be careful for our "little ones" who want to be "Just like us when they get big"! (We've all heard that)

A new week...

Sunday, July 15, 2012

Today is Sunday, the day I've always considered the first day of the week; when I look at the calendar I see seven days filled with unlmimited possibilities and potential. How will I choose to spend these minutes, hours, and days? For I know, that once this time has past it won't be back... I shall not wish it away.... I shall instead be thankful for the moments of each of my days... for they make up the moments of my life... a life that I am so thankful for.

Have a blessed Sunday!!!
