ON THE BRIGHT SIDE
MONDAY, MARCH 30TH, 2015
83 DAYS UNTIL SUMMER
Sunrise: 7:16 am
Sunset: 7:51 pm
Life is a Special Occasion!
Stretch your legs and breath some fresh, outdoor air because today is Take A Walk In The Park Day! Why not visit a local park, have a picnic and stroll by the river?
It is an opportunity for exercise and relaxation. Are you stressed out? A walk in the park is just what the doctor ordered. Its calming and therapeutic. Taken after a busy work day, it helps clear your mind and re-energize you. Or, take the walk during lunch and you will find the afternoon of work goes by quicker and easier.
A walk in the park will likely be the most enjoyable part of your day.
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
I still find each day too short for all the thoughts I want to think, all the walks I want to take, all the books I want to read and all the friends I want to see.
The pictures today are of the snow we had this past weekend. It started Friday with just a dusting on the ground in the morning and by evening the ground was completely covered. Then Saturday our temps never rose above freezing so most of it hung around. Hopefully this week we won’t be seeing any more of that white stuff, because we are going to be in the 40’s for the most part. Yea !
The walking around that I’ll be doing will probably be in my own back yard as I’ll be doing a little baby sitting for a couple of days, but back yards are nice when the sun is shinning !
We have several lovely parks nearby to take walks in. One of my favorites is called Duck Pond mainly because I’ve spend many happy hours there with my family. I’ve done a lot of hiking there along the trails. Now days most of the parks here have paved walking trails making them more handicapped accessible. It wasn’t always like that but thankfully many improvements have been made.
Walking is wonderful exercise and a great stress reliever and I know from experience that if you don’t use it, you’ll lose it. Other than snow shoveling, I’ve not gotten much exercise the past few months. Time to get out and walk a little more.
I hope you all have a wonderful start to this new week! Happy Monday !
COUNTING MY GIFTS
After a day's walk everything has twice its usual value.

Counting at least 3 things every day that I'm thankful for. There is truly is always something to be thankful for.
2625. for walks, good exercise and relieves stress
2626. for sunshine that melts the snow away
2627. for the new week ahead, another chance to get it right
Enter into His courts with thanksgiving — and in His presence is fullness of Joy!

ADVICE FOR TODAY
If you are seeking creative ideas, go out walking. Angels whisper to a man when he goes for a walk.
A little smile, a word of cheer,
A bit of love from someone dear…
