Life is a Special Occasion!
August 19th is World Humanitarian Day. It is a day to recognize those who face danger and adversity in order to help others. They are providing food, water, clothing, shelter, and medical care where no one else can or will. It’s a global celebration of people helping people.
World Humanitarian Day is also an opportunity to celebrate the spirit that inspires humanitarian work around the globe.
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
My humanity is bound up in yours, for we can only be human together.
Archbishop Desmond Tutu
I believe that we were all created precious in God’s sight. We are, each one of us, uniquely and beautifully made. We’ve all been given the gift of life, but what we do with it is our choice.
Each of us has something to do in this life, something only we can do. Our choices decide our future. Many of them will alter our physical health, our economic health, or our reputation. Others will affect our emotional health. We often cannot control the circumstances we find ourselves in. The only thing which we can control is how we react to those circumstances. What we choose to watch, listen to, read or think about will influence our attitudes and behavior.
Our attitude plays a big part in who we are as individuals. Little by little we form an attitude about life and the way the world works, though if we’re not careful we can fail to recognize how fundamental our attitude really is.
It’s always a good idea to have an attitude of gratitude and that is what I try to do each day. The sunset pictures in today’s post always remind of just how thankful I am for another day. It was a very cloudy day but the sunshine still peeked through the clouds making for a wonderful sunset.
I hope you all have a WONDERFUL Wednesday !
COUNTING MY GIFTS

ADVICE FOR TODAY
What sunshine is to flowers, smiles are to humanity. These are but trifles, to be sure; but scattered along life's pathway, the good they do is inconceivable.
A little smile, a word of cheer,
A bit of love from someone dear…
