"One day at a time--this is enough. Do not look back and grieve over the past for it is gone; and do not be troubled about the future, for it has not yet come. Live in the present, and make it so beautiful it will be worth remembering."

I'm Taking Door # 2 Today


We all have some of those times in life where we 
could use some uplifting after a let down.  I've decided 
to do something special for ME today.
In life we usually have more than one choice. We
can choose door one where we keep analyzing our less
than perfect circumstance
OR...
we could choose door two
that takes us out on an adventure in 
making another person's day a little better.



I've decided to take door two today and go out and see
who I can cheer up or just help out
with a compliment or smile or a helping hand.
It's one of the best sure ways to get out of a
down in the dumps countenance. 

Rachel over at
sparked this idea in my head after reading 
her post today.  I love Rachel and you will also.
Go and check out her  sweet attitude
  and also her sweet baking tips and photos.

Doing something for someone else
really is encouraging to both the 
receiver and the giver. 
Don't you agree?

I feel like I'm always the one to be blessed
on the receiving end but today 
I'm anxious to see if I can make someone else smile!   
Do you want to join me?




I'll let you know how it goes!

If you want to join me,
let's meet up at the fire hydrant
by the coffee shop!
Hmmm, I always end up at that same spot
for some reason???

Oh and remember this.....

"He has made everything beautiful in its time."
Ecclesiastes 3:11a


Wait on me at that fire hydrant! Okay?

What a great attitude you have and what a refreshing post. Thank you for your kind comment that you left on my blog. It really made my evening and I will probably make my husband listen to me read it to him word for word. :)
