How Can I Choose One?

My Favorite Quotes

Love the quote.

Today, I am the recipient of thoughtfulness. 

Opened up my inbox to find 2 eCards.  One from my daughter and one from her best friend.  Beautiful New Year wishes.  They are totally unselfish people.  They have their troubles (who doesn’t?), yet made me feel wanted and appreciated.  Made me happy

Then, I got a phone call.  A new friend (lovely woman) asked me to join her and her husband and 3 others for early New Year’s dinner. 

Then, my sister called.  She was in Costco, and had the list of items I had asked her to get for me when next she went there.  A little problem:  the pistachios I wanted was “slightly salted;” however, they had only “shelled” or “salt and pepper.”  I thanked her – “no thanks on that.”

The point:  the greatest gift is when someone (in this case, 4 people) gives of themselves.  Thoughtfulness – being the recipient of – is a source of happiness that is priceless.

A simple “thank you” is all I can muster up right now.

Have a great day!  And a great New Year!

Sunshinebright Isn’t So Bright Today

It’s so close to New Year’s – only one more day to go.  I think it’s getting to me.  I had to think real hard to find something in my day that made me happy – something that would be worth writing about.  I came up with:

RUSTY!  My smallest cat.  He is really a special little guy.  We were cuddling on my bed and he reached out and placed his sweet, soft paw on my arm and spoke to me and looked straight into my eyes.  HEAVEN.  I can always count on him to make me feel brighter.

A GREAT IDEA!

I was channel surfing this afternoon and came upon the OWN channel.  Oprah was just finishing up an interview with a spiritual woman.  The last piece of advice she gave Oprah was:  “Keep a journal and write down what made you happy today.”

I like to write, so I figured “I could do that.”  It’s a few days early to implement a New Year’s resolution, but, so what?  A good idea is good whenever, right?

I got right onto WordPress, started my blog and here I am.

The day isn’t over yet, but, there is something that made me happy today up to this point:  I downloaded a radio program onto my computer.  The sound quality is great and the “radio” is so easy to use.  It even has stereo!

I can now listen to my faves all day long!

Have a great day!!
