ON THE BRIGHT SIDE
WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 7TH, 2015
75 DAYS UNTIL WINTER
Sunrise: 7:32 am
Sunset: 7:02 pm
Life is a Special Occasion!
You Matter to Me Day is the annual event of acknowledging the people who matter to each of us. It’s been held on October 7th every year since 2010. You matter to me. Four words, one phrase that can make a profound difference to every person who hears it and shares it.
Take time to show your appreciation for the special people in your life. Go on, tell someone that they matter to you today !
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
I am convinced that material things can contribute a lot to making one's life pleasant, but, basically, if you do not have very good friends and relatives who matter to you, life will be really empty and sad and material things cease to be important.
I can’t imagine starting a day without my morning post to each of you. I do it because you all to matter to me. Years ago I started off by writing to my family so that they would know what was going on at home and my mailing list continues to grow as many others have been added since that time. Friends, family and loved ones do matter a lot to me and we need to keep in touch. Life is way to short.
Think about how it would feel to lose someone you care about, through an accident, a disaster of some sort, or an act of violence. Would they know that they mattered to you? Would there have been any doubt in their mind? Don’t leave it up to chance, or assume that they know. Please say those words to the people in your life, today.
My days would be pretty incomplete if I didn’t have someone to share them with. You all really do matter a lot to me.
The pictures today are of DS#6 and his family as they enjoyed a trip to an apple orchard recently. They certainly made me SMILE.
I hope you all have a WONDERFUL Wednesday!
COUNTING MY GIFTS
Life isn't a matter of milestones, but of moments.
Counting at least 3 things every day that I'm thankful for. There is truly is always something to be thankful for.
3196. for all the people in my life, they matter a lot to me
3197. for moments to share with those that matter
3198. for a loving Lord, He thinks we all matter, we are never truly alone
Enter into His courts with thanksgiving — and in His presence is fullness of Joy!
78 Days Until Christmas
Create your list of Cards to Send, and begin to list everyone to whom you think you might like to send a card. You can always pare down the list later, if it is too overwhelming. This way you have a general idea of how many cards you need to buy or make. Be sure to add these pages to your holiday planner! Sometimes we send out Christmas Cards and don't get any back, but remember as with so many things at this time of year, it's not just the receiving, but the giving that counts.
PRAYER FOR OUR TROOPS
