Top Of The Monday Morn'in To Ya

Well, happy new week everyone!! Another week-end has flown away (sigh!!)! It is back to the ol' ratrace once again. In all actuality, I am grateful for the job that I have. I have waited most of my sometime's long, years to find a job where I am appreciated and valued by not only my fellow workers but also my supervisors. Alot of that has to do with sharing the same values. It is hard to find a group of peers, now-a-days, that share the same values and are working towards the same goals. When you do find it, hang on to it with the tightest of grip, and do not let it out of your sight or your life. Do what you have to do to preserve it. I have come to realize over the years that one of the keys to having wonderful blessings enter into your life and keeping them around is to constantly express "gratitude" to the "provider" of those blessings. If you don't, you stand in danger of losing that blessing. Take the time today to tell your provider of your blessing(s) how greatful you are for what you have been given or are allowed to share in. Don't forget to take time today to hug your wife or husband and tell them that you appreciate them, what they do and that you love them. If you have children, take them into the moment and hug them if they are in your presence or if they are a distance away, send them an e-mail, write them a note or letter or give a phone call and tell them. Give your pets a hug and tell them you love them, too. Talk to your plants, trees etc. Let them know that you appreciate their involvement in your life and howmuch you value them making your life a little brighter. If you get a chance let your friends know how much you appreciate their friendship. In the words of songwriter/singer Mac Davis:

You got to stop and smell the roses
You got to stop and count your blessing's everyday
You're gonna find the road to Heaven is a rough and rocky road
If you don't stop and smell the roses along the way!!!

With lots of love for all and gratitude for being a part of our lives!!
