What can you do this day, this week, this month, this year to cause another person to be grateful? 


Think about it . . . you could be the source of another person’s gratitude.  Isn’t that a wonderful thought?


What could you do?  What could I do?  Let’s do it! Let’s make a difference in someone else’s life.


How about doing it anonymously?   Let the gratitude not get complicated by getting us mixed up in it.  We are not doing it to be thanked.  Let the gratitude go to God, “From whom all blessings flow.”


Have a Rough Day?

This picture reminds me of something Norman Rockwell might have painted.  It captures that moment when the ball is coming into the crowd . . .  and everyone reacts differently.  Just look at those faces!  


Sorry I can’t give credit to the unknown photographer, but well done, whoever you are!

Toes tell the tale!

Current River Bridge goes across, you guessed it, Current River.

“Back in the day” some of the teenage boys, preening for the girls sitting on beach towels, would jump from the bridge.  We girls would ooo and ahhh at their bravery, then burst into laughter  at the awkward way their arms and legs flailed as they took the big leap.

Thankfully, as far as I know, none of them were hurt, even though it was a ‘dumb’ thing to do.  I wonder if boys are still doing that today?  Probably, if there are teenage girls to watch them.

I was reminded of this youthful act as I heard of Andy Hill,  innocently floating on an inner tube with his wife on the Clark Fork River in Montana. When they floated under a bridge,  Andy was suddenly underwater and in pain, wondering what had happened.  As he came up he heard someone saying “I’m sorry, I’m sorry.”

The sorrowful guy had, you guessed it, jumped from the bridge right into Andy Hill’s lap, breaking bones in both of  his legs.

So, here we have a guy peacefully floating down the river, and here is this other guy taking a risk by jumping from a bridge into the water below.  Which one gets hurt?  

As my friend Flavia would say, “Oh my, how life is!”
