Joy and gratitude

A happy heart is good medicine and a cheerful mind works healing (Proverbs 17:22)

It's been said over and over that finding and keeping joy in your life greatly depends on how you view life. Well, today it's cold and it's going to be wet later this afternoon. I wish I was in Sarasota and envy the girls who are down there enjoying the warmer air, the beach, the food, and of course the fellowship. I can't wait to see the pictures and hear all the stories.

Well, my mind can't be cheerful today but I can be grateful. I believe joy and gratitude go hand and hand. They are like friends that pull each other up when the other is down. I'm grateful today for silly things like Cocoapuff running down the hall and not being able to stop on the slick floor before crashing into the wall.

Knowing I'm really a muppet helps.
You Are Miss Piggy

A total princess and diva, you're totally in charge - even if people don't know it.
You want to be loved, adored, and worshiped. And you won't settle for anything less.
You're going to be a total star, and you won't let any of the "little people" get in your way.
Just remember, piggy, never eat more than you can lift!

I'm grateful for the silly things my son leaves me on the kitchen island, like the day he proclaimed it mother's day and left me a cup of sand to play in.

I'm grateful for lots of silly things, but right now I have to get my silly self busy and get something accomplished today.

Hope you have time for something silly today. I took the muppet test again an hour later after my coffee worked it's magic and turned into a different muppet. LOL

You Are Dr. Bunsen Honeydew

You take the title "mad scientist" to the extreme -with very scary things coming out of your lab.
And you've invented some pretty cool things, from a banana sharpener to a robot politician.
But while you're busy turning gold into cottage cheese, you need to watch out for poor little Beaker!
"Oh, that's very naughty, Beaker! Now you eat these paper clips this minute."
