I got my toes in the water, ass in the sand
Not a worry in the world, in grandma’s hand
Life is good today, life is good today…
A blind boy sat on the steps of a building with a hat by his feet. He held up a sign which said:
“I am blind, please help.” There were only a few coins in the hat.
A man was walking by. He took a few coins from his pocket and dropped them into the hat.
He then took the sign, turned it around, and wrote some words.
He put the sign back so that everyone who walked by would see the new words.
Soon the hat began to fill up. A lot more people were giving money to the blind boy.
That afternoon the man who had changed the sign came to see how things were.
The boy recognized his footsteps and asked, “Were you the one who changed my sign this
morning? What did you write?”
“I wrote: ‘Today is a beautiful day; but I cannot see it.'”
Both signs told people that the boy was blind. But the first sign simply said the boy was blind.
The second sign reminded people how fortunate they were to have their sight. Should we be
surprised that the second sign was more effective?
Moral of the Story:
Be thankful for what you have. Be creative. Be innovative. Think differently and positively.
When life gives you a 100 reasons to cry, show life that you have 1000 reasons to smile.
Face your past without regret. Handle your present with confidence. Prepare for the future
Keep the faith and drop the fear.
It’s a beautiful thing to see a person smiling, but even more beautiful is knowing that you are the reason for the smile!
Faith is not about everything turning out okay. Faith is about being okay no matter how things turn out.
Enjoy this beautiful day with a heart full of gratitude.

I pledge to make my car a No Phone Zone. Beginning right now, I will do my part to help put an end to distracted driving by committing to drive as responsibly as I can.
I will not play at tug o’ war.
I’d rather play at hug o’ war,
Where everyone hugs
Instead of tugs,
Where everyone giggles
And rolls on the rug,
Where everyone kisses,
And everyone grins,
And everyone cuddles,
And everyone wins.
