Just Let it Increase

                              Share your joy and it will increase.


I am so happy with my new theme and of course a huge thank-you to  Donah

My previous post explains it all.

You will have to peek at my ‘about me’ page that Donah tweaked for me.

Thank-you for your kindness and patience with me as we are busy tweaking here and there.

I want to wish you all a fabulous Easter Weekend.

Please remember to always count your blessings and to wear a smile.

I am smiling big.

The Positive Side of Life


Living on Earth is expensive, but it does include a  free trip around the sun every year.


How long a minute is, depends on what side of the bathroom door you’re on.


Birthdays are good for you; the more you have the longer you live.


Ever notice that the people who are late are often much jollier than the people who have to wait for them?


Happiness comes through doors you didn’t even know you left open.


Most of us go to our grave with our music still inside of us.


If Wal-Mart is lowering prices every day, how come nothing is free yet?


You may be only one person in the world, but you may also be the world to one person.


Some mistakes are too much fun to only make once.


Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.


We could learn a lot from crayons: some are sharp, some are pretty, some are dull, some have weird names, and all are different colors, but they all exist very nicely in the same box.



A truly happy person is one who can enjoy the scenery on a detour.


Have an awesome day, and know that someone who thinks you’re great has thought about you today~


And that person was me~


Working for God on earth does not pay much, but His Retirement plan is out of this world.


Pass this along if you wish.


Keep a SMILE on your face and a SONG in your heart!

A smile, is a sign of joy.

A hug, is a sign of love.

A laugh, is a sign of happiness.

God Is Watching The Apples

The children were lined up in the cafeteria of a Catholic elementary school for lunch. At the head of the table was a large pile of apples. The nun made a note, and posted on the apple tray:

‘Take only ONE.  God is watching.’

Moving further along the lunch line, at the other end of the table was a large pile of chocolate chip cookies.

A child had written a note,

‘Take all you want.  God is watching the apples’


A smile to share with you all.

Thank-you to my sister-in-law for sending this email to me.

Create Some Ripples

“I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples.”  ~Mother Teresa

Mother TeresaThese words touched my heart early this morning.

I always feel kindness starts within ourselves.

Give someone a smile today.

Put down your technology of choice and really listen when others are talking to you.

Share some kindness in your world.

Have a terrific weekend~

It Is The Difference

“Life is not the way it’s supposed to be. It’s the way it is. The way you cope with it is what makes the difference.”
– Virginia Satir


I enjoyed a power walk with my daughter early this morning.

The sun was shining and we kept on walking.

4 miles/6.43 KM.

I love to be able to go on these walks with my daughter and catch up on our news in this busy world.

It warms the heart to take some time for the two of us.

Take the time to do something that will warm your heart today~

A Great Gift

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

hugs                                  Give an emotional hug by sharing kind words.

                                  Give a spiritual hug by sitting in quiet prayer.

                        Give a hug of Faith by speaking words of encouragement.

                                        You deserve a hug today.

                                          You deserve lots of hugs~  2013December 082                                         My Grand Son enjoying a ‘Bear Hug’

Make It a Lifestyle Change

Once you plan to make exercising a lifestyle routine, it will automatically stick.

adamMy grand son. I enjoy my walks with my little man, A.J.

Boys are fun too! He is so observant and I just love his curiosity. 

My daughter is very much into fitness as well and it makes me so pleased to see it all being instilled in my grand kidlets.

Hiking, walks and runs are a few of the many activities, my daughter involves the grand kidlets with.

It is a ‘lifestyle routine’ for us all. My gym workout was done early this morning and it is a part of my weekly routine. If I am not at the gym, I am running or long power walks.

My Hubby and I enjoy long walks together.

Fitness is good for us.

It works for me and I love the results.

Although I still have lingering pain in my upper back and neck from a car accident a number of years ago, exercising does help to a certain degree.  My doctor says to keep my muscles strong as it will help with some of the pain.

Exercising is good for me emotionally and along with those feel good endorphins, it all keeps me smiling.

Take good care of yourself and do the best you can with whatever fitness of your choice.

What Did Pooh Say?

      “Sometimes”, said Pooh, “the smallest things take up the most room in your heart.”

Have a fabulous weekend.

No matter what is going on in your life, be grateful.

There really is something to be grateful for.

Take a moment.


You will find that positive.

Remember to look for a positive out of a negative.

It may take awhile to find it.

There always is a positive to be found.

It will fill your heart~
