ON THE BRIGHT SIDE
SATURDAY, MARCH 21ST, 2015
92 DAYS UNTIL SUMMER
Sunrise: 7:31 am
Sunset: 7:42 pm
Life is a Special Occasion!
Celebrated annually on March 21st, today is National Common Courtesy Day. This is a day that is hopefully practiced, by us all, without even thinking about it. Politeness and consideration for others abound on Common Courtesy Day. Say ‘please’ and ‘thank you’, hold doors open for others, and consider the feelings and perceptions of those around you throughout the day.
Common Courtesy… isn't always so common.
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Treat everyone with politeness, even those who are rude to you — not because they are nice, but because you are.
Kindness and courtesy really do go a long way and are noticed by others even if you do not realize it. It is easy to let someone in front of you in traffic, open a door for someone, give someone a hand with their groceries, give up your seat on the bus to someone who might need it, say ‘hello' and shake a hand when you meet someone and remember to say ‘goodbye' and the list could go on and on.
When we quit thinking about ourselves long enough to think of others - great things happen. It is much better to give than to receive.
Today is also Corn Dog Day and I found this quick and easy way to make them
Corn Dog Mini’s
1 box, 8.5 ounces, corn muffin mix
1 can, 10 3/4 ounces, Condensed Cheddar Cheese Soup
4 hot dogs, cut crosswise in thirds
Heat the oven to 400°F. Lightly grease 12 muffin pan cups.
Stir the corn muffin mix, egg and soup in a medium bowl. Spoon about 3 tablespoons batter into each muffin pan cup. Top each with 1 piece hot dog, placed lengthwise.
Bake for 15 minutes or until the minis are golden brown. Let the minis cool in the pan on a wire rack for 5 minutes. Remove the minis from the pan.
I happened to have some mini hot dogs and will use those instead of cutting a regular size hot dog into pieces.
I hope you all have a super Saturday !
COUNTING MY GIFTS
Gratitude is the most exquisite form of courtesy.
Counting at least 3 things every day that I'm thankful for. There is truly is always something to be thankful for.

A bit of love from someone dear…
