Life is a Special Occasion!
August 18th is Serendipity Day. Serendipity is the term for a happy accident or a pleasant surprise. Thus, Serendipity Day encourages people to look for and notice those unexpected good things that are always out there, if we have the eyes to see them.
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
There's always going to be the circumstances you can't plan for. There's always the unexpected relevance and the serendipity.
I do believe that every day is a day to learn something new. There is always a bright side to everything in life. When you take the time to look there is always something bright and beautiful and something to be thankful for.
Every day may not be a good one but there is something good to be found in every day.
Surprises happen when you least expect them and that is much the way it was when DD and DSIL took me out to dinner the other evening. I was thrilled to be going to my favorite restaurant. The Red Lobster. I do love their coconut shrimp. After dinner they decided to take me on a little trip to the beach. I do love the beach! That is what the pictures are of today. Lake Erie isn’t far away at all and we all needed a walk after such a big dinner. The weather was beautiful too, so the timing was just right, but totally unexpected.
It’s to be another glorious summer day here at my house. It’s not bad at all when you have a cool place to be when it’s hot out and there is often a place outside in the shade to sit and idle the hours away.
I hope you all have a TERRIFIC Tuesday !
COUNTING MY GIFTS
In reality, serendipity accounts for one percent of the blessings we receive in life, work and love. The other 99 percent is due to our efforts.
Counting at least 3 things every day that I'm thankful for. There is truly is always something to be thankful for.
3046. for surprises, a walk on the beach was wonderful
3047. for DD and DSIL, they like to show their appreciation
3048. for summer, I will miss it when it’s gone
Enter into His courts with thanksgiving — and in His presence is fullness of Joy!
