ON THE BRIGHT SIDE
JUNE 9TH, 2010
It's OVER THE HUMP DAY.
Today I'll get everything ready to go back to the camper on Thursday morning.
I've got to make some Macaroni Salad to take and also get some fruits and veggies cut up. DS#1 and family will be there tomorrow too so they are doing the cooking and I'm supplying these 3 things. I have the easy part.
I got my shopping done yesterday and even filled up the 'Silver Streak' with gas too.
The days go by so fast that I'm not sure exactly where they went to but I know one thing and that is I'm enjoying them
Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see a shadow
When we adopt an attitude of gratitude, we create a shift in our outlook
We welcome this in every way and everywhere with utmost gratitude

Please join me praying for DSIL's Dad today as he had to be taken to the hospital last night. DD called to let me know and will let me know more when they find out what is wrong.
We who weep come to you, Lord, because you always share our sorrow.
We who suffer come to you, knowing that you cure. We who are afraid come to you, because you smile on us. May we live in your love forever
Please pray for God's protection of
our troops and HIS wisdom for their
Lord, hold our troops in
your loving hands.
Protect them as they protect us.
Bless them and their families for the selfless acts they perform for us
in our time of need. I ask this in the
name of Jesus, our Lord and Savior.
AND bless our Police Officers, Firefighters
and Paramedics and EMT's
GOD BLESS YOU!
There is no danger of developing eyestrain from looking on the bright side of things
I splurged and bought a few flowers for outside on the back patio. It is colorful out there any way because of the wonderfully blooming rose bush but my side was looking a little bare compared to my next door sister's so I thought I'd better get something.
I just hope they don't die for lack of water while I'm away part of the week. I'll water
them good when I am at home.
The happiness of life is made up of minute fractions--the little, soon-forgotten charities of a kiss or smile, a kind look or heartfelt compliment
Samuel Taylor Coleridge
DS#5 is coming by my house today to help with a little window repair. When I was away awhile back it seems someone or something broke one of my storm windows. My house is old and the windows haven't been opened in a long time so I haven't even been able to open the window in order to have the glass repaired. Hopefully he'll be able to do that for me. I'm very thankful for the help.
After that is taken care of he is treating me with a trip to the Apple store as his computer needs a little repair. I thought I'd enjoy going along with him. DS#6 had told me that I need a sleeve for my laptop so maybe I'll find one there.
COUNTING THE DAYS
Laughter improves everything!
12 DAYS UNTIL SUMMER
Keep looking ON THE BRIGHT SIDE of things.
A little smile, a word of cheer,
A bit of love from someone near…
