Thankful ~ Just for Fun JUNE

Continuing with Kim’s June challenge about HAPPINESS. All of us can join in on this challenge, right? I know in my life each day I strive to find more happiness than the day before. Sometimes it works, other times not so much  But I keep trying. That is all we can do is try. I am thankful for the blue sky, the birds singing and for my health. All of those things make me happy. So many are suffering, no home, no food, they cannot see the beauty around us, they cannot hear the birds. We all have many things to be thankful for. And I am thankful for Kim for creating these challenges so we can share our happiness. We never know, something we say can help the next person. Pass it on. Give a smile to the next person you meet. It may be the only one they get. When we help others, even if it is opening the door for them, we are doing it for them, not for us. Instead of expecting something in return, do things selflessly, with no expectations of anything in return.

The photo attached was taken last year in Dustin’s rose garden. Raindrops on the roses make happy.

  1. We probably influence a lot of people without being cognizant of it. When I was a poor kid I rode the same school bus for almost 10 years, wearing hand-me downs from my brothers and clothes made out of feed sacks, but they were still freshly laundered, mended, starched, and ironed. There was another ragged kid, but she was unkempt and the other kids were very mean to her. I always thought there was a fine line between being her and being me and it frightened me into keeping a distance from her. So I never sought out her friendship, but I was polite, said hello and good bye and occasionally asked the other kids to lighten up. After about 5 years of this, she handed me an envelope as she got off the bus. In it she said she was moving away, but wanted to thank me for having been her only friend. I had no idea.

  2. Your article and some of the comments remind me of a part in Steven Spielberg’s movie, Schindler’s List where at the end of the film, Spielberg features an old Hebrew saying:”He who hath saved one life has as it were, saved the world entire.” In other words, if you can make a difference in just one person’s life, you have made a difference to the whole world. Thanks for sharing this post, Carol.
