It's All About Gratitude


I got this from an email someone sent me this week, but unfortunately all the pretty pictures didn't copy over here to the blogger.
No matter, the message is still as true. Happy Sunday!

Attitude
There once was a woman who woke up one morning, looked in the mirror, and noticed she had only three hairs on her head.

'Well,' she said, 'I think I'll braid my hair today.'

So she did and she had a wonderful day.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The next day she woke up, looked in the mirror and saw that she had only two hairs on her head.

'H-M-M,' she said, 'I think I'll part my hair down the middle today.'

So she did and she had a grand day.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The next day she woke up, looked in the mirror and noticed she had only one hair on her head.

'Well,' she said, 'Today I'm going to wear my hair in a pony tail. '

So she did, and she had a fun, fun day.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The next day she woke up, looked in the mirror and noticed that there wasn't a single hair on her head.

'YAY!' she exclaimed. 'I don't have to fix my hair today!'
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Attitude is everything.

Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.

Live simply,
Love generously,
Care deeply,
Speak kindly,
and pray continually.

Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass...

It's about learning to dance in the rain.

What a positive attitude. Gimme some, gimme some. Actually I have a great example of positive attitude in my mother. She can't walk, can't eat regular food. But everytime someone asks her how she feels today, she answers: Great, thank God, I have good health. Uh??

I agree! The quality of your life is dependent on the quality of your thoughts! There is always something for which you can be grateful - seek it and and enjoy!

Be Well.
