For Friday, October 9th, 2015
ON THE BRIGHT SIDE
FRIDAY, OCTOBER 9TH, 2015
73 DAYS UNTIL WINTER
Sunrise: 7:34 am
Sunset: 6;59 pm
Life is a Special Occasion!
Today is Fire Prevention Day. Fire prevention week is during the week in which October 9th falls. Fire Prevention Day exists both to raise awareness of practices that can help prevent these disasters, and to recognize the work of the fire fighters who relieve them.
It’s a day to put into practice the ‘EDITH’ acronym, Exit Drills In The Home, which encourages families to have an escape strategy planned in case of fire. We are reminded to install smoke alarms and check them regularly, and to be aware of other danger spots for fire, from unattended candles to cooking stoves.
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Don't let your dreams go up in smoke - practice fire safety.
I got the little toy fire engine, shown in the picture above, to have here at home for the grand babes to play with. It has brought a lot of joy and just maybe educated them a little too. It has buttons to press that say things like, In case of emergency, dial 911, or Look both ways before crossing the street. I found it at a thrift store and like a lot of things in my house, it’s probably considered an antique, but still worth it’s weight in gold.
It’s always good to be aware and to practice safety in the home. That is where most accidents happen. Here at my house I do have smoke alarms and am thankful for them. I also have a fire extinguisher near the kitchen, another handy thing to have. It hangs in my cellar way, out of sight but close at hand.
Some rain is to come our way today which will also bring a cold front they say. It’s a day to make our own sunshine for sure !
I hope you all have a FANTASTIC Friday!
COUNTING MY GIFTS
Neither fire nor wind, birth nor death can erase our good deeds
Counting at least 3 things every day that I'm thankful for. There is truly is always something to be thankful for.
3202. for firefighters everywhere
3203. for toys that are also educational
3204. for smoke alarms that work
Enter into His courts with thanksgiving — and in His presence is fullness of Joy!
76 Days Until Christmas
While hauling out the jack o’ lanterns and Thanksgiving turkeys, make an informal inventory of Christmas holiday decor. If you know what you have, you'll immunize yourself from impulse buying as the season progresses and you'll pick up any needed items in good time to decorate for Christmas.
