Life is a Special Occasion!
HAPPY ANNIVERSARY TO DS#5 AND HIS WIFE TODAY!
May the dear Lord bless you both today and always!
An anniversary is a time to celebrate the joys of today, the memories of yesterday, and the hopes of tomorrow.
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
A successful marriage requires falling in love many times, always with the same person.
This anniversary is the first of two we will be celebrating in July. There are no birthdays for anyone in our family this month, but the anniversaries are well worth celebrating for sure !
July 8th is also SCUD Day. Yes, It's SAVOR THE COMIC, UNPLUG THE DRAMA DAY today This holiday encourages those of us whose lives might have a touch too much drama to step back, relax, and enjoy the funnier side of life. Relaxation and humour are good for your physical and mental wellbeing, so turn the drama down a notch and enjoy a good laugh instead.
Drama queens/kings thrive on the melodramatic, but too much drama can really drain the life out of the rest of us. If we live waist deep in the mire of everything that seems to drag people down, we’ll never be happy. So today instead of letting all of lifes little things which combine forces into a BIG thing, get you down, look on the brighter side of life and learn to laugh a little. Or a lot.
I like to think that I revel in the every day graces of God. There is so much to be thankful for and when you are thankful for what you have you are contented. There is not much room for any drama, only gratefulness. And when you are grateful you are smiling.
When you can face your life with humor and laughter, you'll find those drama induced times much easier to handle and your health, both mental and physical, will be better too!
I hope you all have a terrific Tuesday!
COUNTING MY GIFTS
Humor is a whisper from the soul, imploring mind and body to relax, let go and be at peace again.
I have counted at least 3 things every day that I'm thankful for over a year and have now reached over 1800 gifts. On my way to 2000. I'm not stopping, but will continue on counting. There is always, always something to be thankful for.
1832. for laughter, it is the best medicine
1833. for smiles that delight and charm
1834. for DS#5 and his wife, it’s their anniversary today
Enter into His courts with thanksgiving — and in His presence is fullness of Joy!
PRAYER FOR OUR TROOPS

ADVICE FOR TODAY
Learn to enjoy every minute of your life. Be happy now. Don't wait for something outside of yourself to make you happy in the future. Think how really precious is the time you have to spend, whether it's at work or with your family. Every minute should be enjoyed and savored.
A little smile, a word of cheer,
A bit of love from someone dear…
