Sometimes it’s hard to feel happy. I’m going through one of those times when life seems overwhelming and I’m not sure how we’ll get past the next six weeks. I just have to remind myself that judging from past experience everything will work out as it should. I found this YouTube video and I love how the senior citizens show us just how “happy” is done. It made me smile and I hope it does you too.

I hope you have a happy and carefree day!

A Great Attitude

Bad attitudeThis quote reminds me of Evey. Her great attitude is so inspiring. I believe it’s the driving force which helps her accomplish the things she does. She lives with a rod along her spine that has to be expanded every couple of months. Every movement must be difficult and uncomfortable. Yet she smiles and is not a complainer. She’s happy and enjoyable to be around. Thank you, Evey, for the lessons you teach me. One of my favorites is the one I used for the Thought for Today: “The only disability in life is a bad attitude.”

Evey's Rods

Cally Johnson recently shared on Facebook this picture of Evey’s MAGEC rods along with this comment: “This helps me keep perspective on what I think my real problems are. This technology will never cease to amaze me and the fact that Evey smiles and is as happy as can be makes her my personal hero.”

We can all learn from Evey’s attitude! Thanks Cally for giving me permission share.

Three Ways to a Wonderful Life

Tomorrow, November 12th, is Mark’s birthday and as I searched the internet looking for something which describes and honors him, I came up with these three things he does daily to make his life and mine wonderful.

1) Have a sense of humor.
Have HumorMark has a great sense of humor, which makes living with him both enjoyable and entertaining. He makes me laugh in stressful times. No matter where we are he knows how to put strangers at ease with humor. When we left the hospital Friday, two nurses said, “I’m sure going to miss you here. You made me laugh and brought joy to my day.” He was going through a difficult, two day preparation before a colonoscopy, but still made the nurses laugh.

2) Never quit on what you want to achieve.

Never Quit

Mark is a winner because he never quits. He keeps working on and believing in his abilities. His perseverance is an inspiration to all who know him. He works hard at everything he does and when he doesn’t accomplish what he’d hoped to, he works at not letting it get him down. I’m proud of his determination and positive attitude. I consider myself a winner also because I’m married to him.

3) Choose to be happy.

Choose to be Happy Mark definitely chooses to be happy. He has good reason to be sad and disappointed in life, but he chooses not to be. He forgives and forgets thoughtless comments. He’s never demanding and always appreciative of all that he has. He’s a joy to take care of because he has such a grateful heart, which makes it all worthwhile.

What makes your life wonderful?  I’d love to hear your ways.

I hope you have a great day which leads to a wonderful life!
