Sunrise: 6:15 am
Sunset: 8:56 pm
Life is a Special Occasion!
July 23rd is Gorgeous Grandma Day! For those of you not familiar with 'Gorgeous Grandma’, she is every woman over fifty, sixty or seventy who:
Believes she has her whole life ahead of her, not her whole life behind her.
Wants to get the most out of every day of her life
Wants to thrive, not just survive
Cares for her mind and her body
Remains adaptable to life’s bittersweet as well as sweet
Cherishes herself as much as she cherishes her loved ones
Refuses to remain static – who is always open to learning, to new ideas, to new challenges and to new experiences.
It’s a great day to honor our Grandmas and to be gorgeous too !
Happy Gorgeous Grandma Day to all of the special grandmas out there in this big wide world!
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style
I am a Grand’ma’ and like to think I fit into the criteria listed above in order to be a ‘Gorgeous’ one. I believe that the rest of my life is ahead of me. I do try to get the most out of each day and try to be open to new ideas and learn something new every day of my life.
I really don’t think you need be a Grandma to live this way. No matter what age you are it’s a great way to live your life. Don’t just survive, but thrive!
If you truly want to joyfully thrive, I believe that thankfulness must be part of your daily life. We can use gratitude as a way to keep our positive outlook fresh and strong. Making gratitude a way of life motivates us to keep moving forward and to thrive. Just remember that it requires action and repetition to get the full thriving benefits
More flower power pictures today. They are thriving in this summer weather.
I hope you all have a GREAT day ! Happy Thursday!
COUNTING MY GIFTS
Remember to be grateful and love always — for love returns in so many ways
Counting at least 3 things every day that I'm thankful for. There is truly is always something to be thankful for.
2970. for something new to learn every day
2971. for a few cooler days this week after having a sweltering weekend

Enter into His courts with thanksgiving — and in His presence is fullness of Joy!
