For Monday, March 3rd, 2014
ON THE BRIGHT SIDE
MONDAY, MARCH 3RD, 2014
17 DAYS UNTIL SPRING!
110 DAYS UNTIL SUMMER!!!
Sunset: 6:21 pm
I Want You to be Happy Day is celebrated on March 3rd of each year. As you go about this day, remember that the point is not for others to make you happy, but each and every one of us to do what we can to bring joy to someone else’s life.
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
There are only two roads that lead to something like human happiness. They are marked by the words: love and achievement. In order to be happy oneself it is necessary to make at least one other person happy. The secret of human happiness is not in self-seeking but in self-forgetting.
The sunrise on Saturday morning was so brilliantly red that I stepped outside the back door to get some pictures to share with you all. Sorry to say they don’t show the color as much as it actually was, still I think you get the idea. We now have several more inches of snow on the ground thanks to the snow that came our way Saturday night into Sunday, but thankfully it wasn’t as bad as first predicted. It did get much colder once more and we saw temps very close to zero again last night.
I have to say I’m happy this morning, that’s not unusual for me. Hope you are happy too! This morning though, I’m a little happier than usual because DS#4 called yesterday to invite me down to his house for the end of March. I’ll be gone just a little over a week , leaving on the first day of spring and will return home April 1st. I’ll be hoping that April Fool’s Day will be a good one because too often we get fooled with a snow storm on that date.
Sending you all some Hugs and Smiles today! Be happy !
I have learned is that God loves us more than we will ever know and that God wants us to be happy in our lives. Why else would we be down here learning these little lessons about life, love, and joy? I hope that you have a lifetime of happiness learning yours and sharing them with others.

COUNTING MY GIFTS
I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn't arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I'm going to be happy in it.
I have counted at least 3 things every day that I'm thankful for this past year and have now reached my 1000 gifts. I'm not stopping, but will continue on counting. There is always, always something to be thankful for.
1451. for DS#4 who makes this mom very happy
1452. for the beauty of nature even when it snows
1453. for a trip to look forward to and hopefully warmer weather too!
Enter into His courts with thanksgiving — and in His presence is fullness of Joy!
PRAYER FOR OUR TROOPS
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 ALL!
It's never too late -- never too late to start over, never too late to be happy.
A little smile, a word of cheer,
A bit of love from someone dear…
