Today, September 13, 2019,
is National Positive Thinking Day!


Yes, there literally is a day for everything it seems!

So, I’m encouraging you today (and this weekend) to do something to spread the positivity wave! Buy someone a coffee, send an encouraging note or a thank you, phone or text your best friend, smile at a stranger, extend a compliment…. SHARE THE POSITIVITY!

Here is a set of positive quotes to celebrate National Positive Thinking Day!

New Vehicle!

I don’t purchase a new vehicle very often (I previously owned a classic 2002 Ford Excursion!), so I’m thrilled with my new GMC Yukon!

Air Conditioning!

Every day I’m grateful for air conditioning and it’s essential to the “positivity wave” around here!

IN-N-OUT! IN-N-OUT!
That’s What a Hamburger’s All About!

If you live in or have visited California, you know!
IN-N-OUT was a frequent dating destination for my high school crowd back in the day.
Now, every trip to IN-N-OUT is a trip down nostalgia lane for me!
Have you enjoyed an IN-N-OUT burger and fries?

Family Parties!

The longer I live, the more special family parties become!
Bio family and/or found family ….. draw a wider circle!
Heading to a family party tomorrow!

Mild Summer!

I’m grateful that so far we’ve experienced a mild summer in my neck of the woods! No extreme heat waves…YET! I haven’t resorted one time to posting this favorite summer cartoon!

Celebrating a Birthday!

Birthdays are always fun for the young and young-at-heart!

Fall TV!

It won’t be long now and new fall programming will commence! Do you have favorite television programs? A few that I look forward to including This is Us (I love this show because it’s structured like a multilayered, complex, literary family drama!), Blue Bloods, Chicago Fire, Chicago PD, Chicago Med, NCIS, The Rookie, The Crown: Season 3 (Netflix), and, of course, Jeopardy (for the nerd in me!).

Back to School

The bittersweet aspect of retiring from teaching is missing out on the “back to school” anticipation and vibe! I love “back to school” supplies, planners, new outfits, and the excitement of learning! I definitely don’t miss the early wake-up call!

Spiritual

Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; his steadfast love endures forever!
