Monday Motivation

Our Greatest Wealth

~Author Unknown~

We are born with two eyes in front because we must not always look behind, but see what lies ahead beyond ourselves.

We are born to have two ears, one left, one right so we can hear both sides, collect both the compliments and criticisms, to see which are right.

We are born with a brain concealed in a skull then no matter how poor we are, we are still rich, for no one can steal what our brain contains, packing in more jewels and rings than you can think.

We are born with two eyes, two ears, but one mouth for the mouth is a sharp weapon, it can hurt, flirt, and kill. Remember our motto: talk less, listen and see more.

We are born with only one heart, deep in our ribs it reminds us to appreciate and give love from deep within.

Happy Monday! ~ Betty

Monday Motivation

The Waste in Worry
by Brad Stevens

If we were to keep a record of all the things we worried about during a given period of time, we would discover--in reviewing them--that the great majority of our anticipated problems or troubles never come to pass. This means that most of the time we devote to worrying, even the constructive kind that prompts us to try to come up with a solution to what is troubling us, is wasted. Thus, we not only caused ourself unnecessary mental anguish, but also took up valuable minutes and hours that could have been spent elsewhere.

To avoid this, it is often necessary to subject potential sources of worry to the coldly objective and analytical light of reason. Once, shortly before a major concert before a standing-room- only audience, a member of Arturo Toscanini's orchestra approached the great Italian conductor with an expression of sheer terror on his face. "Maestro," the musician fretted, "my instrument is not working properly. I cannot reach the note of E-flat. Whatever will I do? We are to begin in a few moments."

Toscanini looked at the man with utter amazement. Then he smiled kindly and placed an are around his shoulders. "My friend," the maestro replied, "Do not worry about it. The note E-flat does not appear anywhere in the music that you will be playing this evening."

The next time we find ourselves in the middle of worrying about some matter, we might be wise to stop and ask ourselves what the odds are of the problem really coming to pass. We may be able to go on to something more constructive.

~If God brings you to it - He will bring you through it.~

Celebrating 15 Year Wedding Anniversary

Yesterday was our 15 year wedding anniversary! Where does the time go? It seems like yesterday we met and then got engaged on the beach in Florida! Our Mediterranean cruise is on hold for now so our 4 1/2 year old son said he would take us out. We went to Bahama Breeze and had a yummy dinner. It was the closest thing to actually being on the beach ~:)

Made an Anniversary card for my hubby on HM, of course. I used a template so it took less than 5 minutes. Click here to see a preview: http://tinyurl.com/mhuacz I spared you the lovey dovey sentiment that I wrote ~:)

Have a wonderful weekend! If you live near Alpharetta, GA come see me at North Point Mall on Sunday. I have a booth for the Women and Children's Expo, center court near Macy's.
See you then! ~ Betty
