Today, it’s supposed to rain off and on.  Of course, today I get my hair done.  Then I’m running a bazillion errands and having lunch with my pal Cathy.  Our temp in the a.m. is supposed to be in the 20’s!  You all have a great day.

As you waste your breath complaining about life, someone out there is breathing their last.

Appreciate what you have.

Be thankful and stop complaining.

Live more, complain less.

Have more smiles, less stress.
