The sun sets on another day ...

Sunset was bright and colorful, and I watched from a distance unable to make it to the beach. The brisk air outside was super difficult but I had on my warm jacket and enjoyed being outside as much as I could.

This week I have been on a countdown. One of my dogs has been having a terrible time from jumping off a 12 inch ledge and falling wrong. To my bigger dog, well, she doesn't even notice that type of distance but the small dog had issues and is very old. I was counting down wondering if I was going to have to make a difficult decision. I had hope and I did everything I could and guess what , he started walking better again today.

I know that it's just a matter of time but I try to stay positive and make his days as fantastic as possible as he tries to make mine pretty good too. it's funny how animals can affect us and even funnier how sometimes you just make the best of everything you can .

So as the sun sets on another day, I'm thankful for another day. I'll stay thankful for another day as long as I can until I have no days left. Be thankful for every day you have for there is no tomorrow until today is yesterday.

Sleep sweet , love life, and Woof

The sun sets on another day...

I haven't said very much about an upcoming event on Pages Promotions. I'm just going to leave this here and say you should go to the Pages Promotions site and look at all the events that are upcoming to win a date with a book and enjoy the moments as you go along. I think doing so will give you tremendous insight into authors and if you're really exciting you can buy my books and have a fun time reading them.

So as the sun sets on another day this short post was brought to you by me but I'm sitting here telling you to go to pages promotion site and have some fun because isn't that what life is all about? Find something exciting and make it yours, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and read more books…

The sun sets on another day...

I find myself considering a lot about people all of the time. On this rather gloomy day I watched the snowflakes fall across the yard and smiled about it all. Later, when talking to my sister, I considered even more about all of the things that make people special. I think this is important as people are at the core of all we do . Even if you were a hermit or some type of over the top introvert people make a difference in your life and there are some people that you have to count on .

An important question to ask is what makes people special to you. It may not be something huge and it may not be something minuscule instead it is most likely something in between. Sure sometimes it's something very small that you can't put your finger on but still you know inside what makes others special to you.

Just as important is what makes you special to others. What is that value proposition that makes people come to you and want to be around you. Is it something permanent that will always be there or something transient that will disappear at a moment's notice and leave you wondering what happened? These are questions you should ask yourself so that you can affectively understand how things work for you. You may have considered this over and over but in reality there is something special about each of us and someone special that will be there for each of us when we need them. Consider your specialty and what's important for you to find if you haven't discovered it already.

So as the sun sets on another day I hope you find your specialty and realize how special you are. I know some of you that read these posts but there are far too many for me to say I know them all . Take a moment and take a deep breath and realize how special you are daily because I know even without knowing you or meeting you that you truly are, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and be special...

The sun sets on another day...

Today was an absolutely bright and amazing day from almost any way you look at it. I find consistently that days that are bright naturally bring out the best in people. Days that are bright also show us an amazing part of ourselves because we've find our way to be happier.

What else can do that for you?  There are a lot of things that automatically light our way. A kittens playfulness, a child's laugh, puppies, someone who loves you, a warm fireplace, family, a friend who cares, and so many more can make me smile and light my path.

I am reminded of the song My Favorite Things. There are so many amazing positive things that can make our lives so much better if we just let them. And when the dog bites or the bee stings we can turn that around with just a few of them or sometimes even one.

I had a friend once I used to talk to all the time. I won't go into the details of why we don't talk anymore but when we talked my life always was better. It didn't matter how bad things were I knew I had them in my corner and they could lift my spirit just by saying my name. I have a friend now that does similar but we rarely get to talk as much as we used to and almost never see each other thanks to covid. Still the thought of talking to them makes me feel good about myself and when we do get to talk it can be about everything or nothing and I still feel good.

I strongly suggest that we all find those favorite things and use them to light our pathway and make our days better. Make a list in your head of what makes you smile or better yet who makes you smile. Then make a list of the things that take your smile away. Let's try to focus on those wonderful things that make our life better and skip the other ones. It'll make a difference .

So as the sun sets on another day Brown paper packages tide up with strings with bright copper kettles all around me may make the day better but I decide that and maybe I need to pick the best things in my life to lift me up, no matter what. Consider that and find the best things in your life and I'll see you at the top .

Sleep sweet, love life, and rise above...
