Food For Thought

 1. Take a 10-30 minute walk every day. And while you walk, smile. It is the ultimate anti-depressant.


2. Sit in silence for at least 10 minutes each day. Buy a lock if you have to.


3. When you wake up in the morning complete the following statement, 'My purpose is to __________ today.'


4. Eat more foods that grow on trees and plants and eat less food that is manufactured in plants.


5. Drink green tea and plenty of water. Eat blueberries, wild Alaskan salmon, broccoli, and almonds.


6. Try to make at least three people smile each day.


7. Don't waste your precious energy on gossip, energy vampires, issues of the past, negative thoughts or things you cannot control. Instead invest your energy in the positive present moment.


8. Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a college kid with a maxed out charge card.


9. Life isn't fair, but it's still good.


10. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone.


11. Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does.


12. You don't have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.


13. Make peace with your past so it won't spoil the present.


14. Don't compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about.


15. No one is in charge of your happiness except you.


16. Frame every so-called disaster with these words: 'In five years, wills this matter?'


17. Forgive everyone for everything.


18. What other people think of you is none of your business.


19. GOD heals everything.


20. However good or bad a situation is, it will change.


21. Your job won't take care of you when you are sick. Your friends will. Stay in touch.


22. Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need.


23. Each night before you go to bed complete the following statements: I am thankful for __________. Today I accomplished _________.


24. Remember that you are too blessed to be stressed.

A Little Pick-Me-Up

Our oldest grand kids came over to
 spend the night.

Kimmy called to say they were ready
and had packed their ROOMS!

 What a joy to have laughter and 
noise around!

 The cups came out.

 Lulu read to me.
While Papa and Levi worked with hand tools,
fixing a broken shelf.




 Later on it was a creative time for everyone.




I think Lulu DID pack her room, because
she set it up in our room!

Levi choose to take over the
 whole living room!


Thank you Mark and Kimmy.
It was a great pick-me-up for all of us!
