Calendar Today by Lois

Just living is not enough...
One must have sunshine,
freedom, and a little flower.

I quote others to better
express myself

Tomorrow is the most important thing in life.
Comes into us at midnight very clean.
It's perfect when it arrives and it puts itself
in our hands. It hopes we've learned
something from yesterday.
~ John Wayne


When you build bridges you
can keep crossing them.
~ Rick Pitino


Be thankful that you don't already have
everything you desire.  If you did,
what would there be to look forward to?
Be thankful when you don't know something,
for it gives you the opportunity to learn.
~ Unknown

It's easy to be thankful for the good things.
A life of rich fulfillment comes to those who
are also thankful for the setbacks.
Gratitude can turn a negative into a positive.
Find a way to be thankful for your troubles,
and they can become your blessings.
~ Unknown

Sometimes when we are generous in small,
barely detectable ways it can change
someone else's life forever.
~ Margaret Cho

Christmas is the harvest time of love.  Souls are drawn to other souls. 
All that we have read and thought and hoped comes to fruition
at this happy time.  Our spirits are astir.  We feel within us a
strong desire to serve.  A strange, subtle force, a new
kindness, animates man and child.  A new spirit is growing
in us.  No longer are we content to relieve pain, to sweeten
sorrow, to give the crust of charity.  We dare to give friendship,
service, the equal loaf of bread and love.

~Helen Keller

I hope you enjoyed your stay today. I have so many things to share,
but am always afraid I am writing a book complete with
pictures! Can I honestly add too much?

Tomorrow I continue with my Christmas theme and

the reason for the season. Please join me.
Be safe, be always aware of everything and everyone
around you - have a great day!
