ON THE BRIGHT SIDE
WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 13TH, 2016
66 DAYS UNTIL SPRING
Sunrise: 7:54 am
Sunset: 5:21 pm
Life is a Special Occasion!
Today is National Rubber Ducky Day! In 1970, Jim Henson performed the song 'Rubber Duckie' as Ernie on Sesame Street, and the rubber duck bath toy has been an iconic American symbol ever since. Rubber ducks have been around since the rise of the rubber industry in the late 1800s, but no one knows their exact origin.
Rubber Ducky, you’re the one...
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Enjoy the little things, for one day you make look back and realize they were the big things.
Those little yellow rubber duckies are a lot of fun and most of us have had them floating around in the bath tub at one time or another. I know I’ve given a few away as gifts too, especially for baby showers.
They are a reminder that we all need to have a little fun in our lives. Sometimes we get so busy, we forget to slow down and have a little fun. Fun doesn’t have to be expensive. Joy is free!
Ever wonder why time seems to speed up the older and busier you get? The answer is simple: It's probably because you're just not paying attention. We need to slow down in order to see the bright side of life. To notice more, not do more. Slow down, pay attention and notice more.
This week continues to be a cold and snowy one. Yesterday there were several school closings in our area due to road conditions. When it’s so cold out that there is no melting going on, there is a lot of slipping and sliding going on.
Take good care everyone !
I hope you all have a WONDERFUL Wednesday !
