ON THE BRIGHT SIDE
SATURDAY, JANUARY 7TH, 2017
72 DAYS UNTIL SPRING
Life is a Special Occasion!
Today is I’m Not Going To Take It Anymore Day which is when we as human beings fight back against the injustices inflicted upon us, to show that we have our own lives and our own prerogatives. It's a great day to stand up and take control of your issues.
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
There is little difference in people, but that little difference makes a big difference. The little difference is attitude. The big difference is whether it is positive or negative.
W. Clement Stone
Over the years I’ve learned that there is not much I have control of in life, except for my attitude. Lots of crazy things happen in our lives that tend to upset us but it’s our attitude that makes all the difference.
Sometimes the best changes begin with an attitude adjustment. When things go wrong, I try to count my blessings and be thankful for what I have.
It has been bitter cold here and I’d like to say I can’t take it any longer and take a trip south to warmer weather, but that is not an option right now, so I’m just going to be thankful for this day and enjoy it the best I can.
I hope you all have a SUPER Saturday!
WHAT’S NEW IN THE KITCHEN
There is a food holiday to celebrate every day of the year!
It’s National Tempura Day!
Tempura is a delicious deep fried Japanese dish made with lightly battered vegetables and seafood. The original cooking technique is actually attributed to the Portuguese, who landed in Japan in the sixteenth century to establish new trade routes.
A traditional tempura will usually include shrimp, scallops, eggplant, green beans, sweet potato, or mushrooms.
COUNTING MY GIFTS
Of all the attitudes we can acquire, surely the attitude of gratitude is the most important and by far the most life changing.
Counting at least 3 things every day that I'm thankful for. There is truly is always something to be thankful for.
4549. for another day, a new opportunity to do our best

4551. for a nice warm house
Enter into His courts with thanksgiving — and in His presence is fullness of Joy!
