ON THE BRIGHT SIDE

55 DAYS UNTIL WINTER
Sunrise: 7:54 am

Life is a Special Occasion!
October 27th is Cranky Co-workers Day! Whether you work full time, part time, work from home or are retired, chances are pretty good you’ve worked with one or two cranky people before. All year you have dealt with them and their crankiness but today just let them be cranky and enjoy their misery. A brighter outlook says it's time to kill your cranky co-workers with kindness.
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
If you are patient in one moment of anger, you will escape a hundred days of sorrow.
It’s true that we all have to deal with cranky people in our lives. Not only at work but at home or school too. I’ve never been a cheerful morning person until I wake up slowly and have that good cup of coffee, so some would say I’m a cranky person. I love waking up slowly, sipping my good cup of coffee in the quiet early mornings, but not in a crowd of people. When my family was home I’d get up an extra hour early just to have the time for myself. Once I had my hour I was ready to greet everyone with a smile. But had to have that ‘me’ time first.
One thing I know, maybe two is that you can’t fight anger with anger, it’s best just to give cranky people a lot of space and let them cool off. Dealing with angry people requires a good attitude, a lot of patience. Life can be crazy. People are just people, some can cope better than others, and some have been treated better than others. Angry people suffer. Be mindful of that, be kind, and always give them the benefit of the doubt.
We’re to start out the week with some warmer weather in the 70’s so I’m going to enjoy it while I can. The long range forecast says it’ll be much colder by the end of the week.
I hope you have a great start to this new week. Happy Monday!
58 DAYS UNTIL CHRISTMAS
It’s time to think about Holiday traditions. For many people, holiday movies are a part of childhood memories. Many of us enjoy sharing those traditions with our own children. A favorite here at our house this time of year was It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown. I remember watching this with my own children and those memories bring back many happy thoughts!
COUNTING MY GIFTS
For every minute you are angry, you lose sixty seconds of happiness.
I have counted at least 3 things every day that I'm thankful for 2 years and have now reached 2000 gifts. On my way now to 3000. I'm not stopping, but will continue on counting. There is always, always something to be thankful for.
2165. for quiet peace filled mornings
2166. for my good cup of coffee
2167. for morning sunrises that always make me smile
Enter into His courts with thanksgiving — and in His presence is fullness of Joy!
