Friday Chuckle

I thought I would share a Friday chuckle with you.  My daughter and son-in-law are going to Mexico for a week and my hubby and I will be living in their home while they are away.  Busy and fun times ahead with a 10 and 13 year old.  I will try to get to my blog throughout the week.

Have a fabulous weekend.

I thought of myself when I read this joke, not because of the false teeth. I am blessed to still have my own teeth, although my hubby tells me I can be a chatter box.  ha ha   ;)


A Pastor goes to the dentist for a set of false teeth. The first Sunday after he gets his new teeth, he talks for only eight minutes.

The second Sunday, he talks for only ten minutes.

The following Sunday, he talks for 2 hours and 48 minutes.
The congregation had to mob him to get him down from the pulpit and they asked him what happened.

The Pastor explains the first Sunday his gums hurt so bad he couldn’t talk for more than 8 minutes.

The second Sunday his gums hurt too much to talk for more than 10 minutes.

But, the third Sunday, he put his Wife’s’ teeth in by mistake and he couldn’t shut up..

I KNOW you are smiling.




A Beautiful Thing

Every time you smile at someone, it is an action of love, a gift to that person, a beautiful thing. ~Mother Teresa

Smiling requires 17 muscles.

Smiles are the language of love.

Laughter is healthful.

Smile more.

Share some laughter throughout your day.

Laughter releases stress.

Remember to laugh at yourself from time to time.

An Act of Kindness

“Carry out a random act of kindness, with no expectation of reward, safe in the knowledge that one day someone might do the same for you.”  ~Princess Diana 


Happy World Kindness Day.

I took this photo while on my run early this morning. It was cold and sunny here in the Fraser Valley, British Columbia, Canada.

Snow is slowly starting to appear on the peaks of the beautiful mountains.

While on my run I thought about today being, “Kindness Day.”

I believe in being kind every single day, as kindness is appreciated universally.

Practice kindness and pass it on.

Give someone a smile.

A hug.

Open the door for someone.

Buy a coffee for a stranger.

Just be kind and it will come back to you.

“When it comes to KINDNESS,  nothing is ever SMALL.” ~Dodinsky


BOO! Did I scare you?   :)


My sweet grand daughter emailed me her pumpkin photo and she thought that maybe I could put it on my blog. What a sweet girl! Of course I would do that for her.  M.J. told me her pumpkin is on the left and her brother’s pumpkin on the right.

You are one of a kind and wonderful.

Have a beautiful day and I am sending good wishes to all of you.

Happy Thanksgiving Weekend

                                       Happy Thanksgiving to YOU. 


Happy Thanksgiving to my Canadian friends that are celebrating this weekend.

                          There is always something to give thanks for.


Wishing you blessings of health, happiness, love and success on Thanksgiving and always.

Our grown kidlets have decided with all this beautiful fall weather we are having, they are going camping this weekend. We are invited for turkey dinner tomorrow and wouldn’t you know it, they are calling for rain.  Yikes.  You have to understand that I am not a camper.  ha ha  Oh well. We have decided we will join them for an hour or so only if it is not pouring rain. We have been enjoying a long stretch of summer like weather, so just maybe the rain will hold off while we are there.  Wishful thinking.   ;)

I really don’t know where they get their camping ideas from as my hubby and I have never been into camping.  Now on the other hand maybe if we had a motorhome we would feel differently.

The weekend will be full of fun and gratitude’s just the same.  I love my family and treasure them all.

Enjoy your weekend and thanks so very much for taking time to visit my blog. I appreciate you.

Wishing this Thanksgiving finds you with plenty of reasons to give thanks.

                                     Give Thanks Today and Everyday


Do It Today

Hug someone today.

A hug is a great gift. One size fits all, and it’s easy to exchange.

Hug your favorite pet. Pets are comforting and can help you feel secure in times of loneliness.


Hugs just feel good. I am a huge fan of hugging.


Embrace hugging, it’s good for you.

 There is a saying by Virginia Satir, a respected family therapist, “We need four hugs a day for survival. We need eight hugs a day for maintenance. We need twelve hugs a day for growth.”

Give out hugs whenever you can.

Have you hugged someone today?

Photo Credit of the bottom two photos are from an email that was forwarded to me this morning and I wanted to share them with you.
