Today is June 1st, Flip a Coin Day. It’s a day when making decisions is as easy as flipping a coin. This tradition dates back to Julius Caesar. Caesar would take a coin and flip it to make decisions where the right choice was unclear. The correct answer was 'heads', which of course carried his image on the coin.
To celebrate today simply Flip a coin. Use this method of decision making for all decisions, and for everything you do today.
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Summer is a promissory note signed in June, its long days spent and gone before you know it, and due to be repaid next January.
I do remember at least one time in my life when I made a decision by flipping a coin. Back in the day when I loved driving and had my first car I used to go for a drive just for the pleasure of it and having no place to go in mind. I’d flip a coin at the intersection to see which way to go. It was a fun way to see something new or not. Sometimes I’d just go in circles. Ha!
Making important decisions in our lives does mean doing a lot more than flipping a coin, if we want to make good ones. Tough decisions require a little thought and consideration and for me that means praying as well.
It is very hard to believe that the month of June is here and that May flew by so quickly. Once the nice weather hits, it always seems to be that way. The months of January February, and March seemed to creep by. It took forever for Spring to arrive and now it is almost summer.
School will soon be over and for me that means that some of my children and grandchildren will be in for a visit.
I’m sure that just like May, June will fly by too, but I have plans to enjoy every single moment ! The pictures today are of some summer fun had by some of my grandchildren last year. Hopefully there will be plenty more good times to enjoy this year.
I hope you all have a great start to this new week. Happy Monday !

People take pictures of the Summer, just in case someone thought they had missed it, and to proved that it really existed.
