ON THE BRIGHT SIDE
MONDAY, NOVEMBER 30th, 2015
Life is a Special Occasion!
Did you wake well rested, feeling vigorous and ready for the day? Then you are ready to celebrate Stay Home Because You’re Well Day. This day is celebrated annually on November 30th. This holiday has no agenda other than to spend a healthful day at home. What you do with it is up to you.
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
The happiest moments of my life have been the few which I have past at home in the bosom of my family.
These days I stay at home every day of the year, but one thing I regret is taking off sick days when I did work. I hardly ever missed a day of work because I didn’t feel well. I worked at jobs that no one else did and felt responsible to show up every day.
We used to call taking a day off when you felt good a Mental Health days. A day when you could recoup and recover from working. Everyone should take one now and then because it only makes you a better person for having done so. One of the reasons people do get sick is because they get stressed out from working so hard. I don’t regret many things in my life, but not taking time off from work is one of them.
The week ahead is looking pretty good for this time of year in Ohio. Temps will range from mid 40s to upper 50’s this week. Can’t complain at all when we usually have snow by now.
And speaking of home, I had to share some pictures of the individual gingerbread homes we decorated this year. I’m not sure who’s is who’s, but mine is the one above the heading that reads 24 days until Christmas.
I hope you all have a GREAT start to this new week. Happy Monday !
COUNTING MY GIFTS
Where we love is home, home that our feet may leave, but not our hearts.

Counting at least 3 things every day that I'm thankful for. There is truly is always something to be thankful for.
3358. for stay at home days, they are wonderful

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