o.k. ... this sounds good, right?!

But can you put it into action?  

Can you really go 24 hours without complaining?

The cat knocks over the vase of flowers {again} sending water spilling everywhere!

The garbage is overflowing but nobody but you seems to see it!

The car in front of you has their cruise set 1 mile below the speed limit {and you can't pass them}!

Yet *another* glass of milk is spilled at supper!

The clerk at the store is just a crab.

You ordered a CHEESEburger but it came with no cheese!

Can you do it?

Can you find something good in each situation?  A glimmer of "hope"?

Flowers tipped, water spilled ... the counter needed to be wiped down anyway!

The garbage is full ... I have a home full of people to create garbage!

The clerk is a crab ... maybe they have a sick parent/spouse/child at home, but have to be at work, maybe they just got "that" call from the Dr. with bad news, you never know what is going on in their life ... BLESS them anyway ... even if they are just a crab!

*Another* glass of milk is spilled ... my children {or my spouse or myself} are happy and healthy and HERE with me!

The person in front of you in the store ... you have the money you need to purchase the items in your cart!

Your CHEESEburger had no cheese ... you are able to enjoy a meal out!

Hmmmmmm.....maybe just maybe:

Let's work on this together today, and tomorrow, and next week, and next month ... and then let's see what direction our lives, and our families, and our little corner of the world takes 
{I'm going to make a prediction that things will improve ... when our attitudes improve}!

Start with the next 24 hours that God has given you

 ... they are a gift 

... will you use them to complain or enjoy the blessings that are yours for the taking? 

It's all up to you!

So many changes ...

We like to tell people that we love Chattanooga so much we moved here twice! Since my last post in 2020, we spent eight months in Michigan...
