Live IN joy ! Enjoy life!

Posted by

I was asked, "Why are you always 'happy'?" I replied, "I'm not 'always' happy... but the energy I would waste bringing others down, I could utilize lifting someone up. That's when I am happiest." Life is to ENJOY... I choose to live IN JOY. Remember YOU are the most influential person in your life. How you see yourself is greater than what others see. BE A LION! BE ASSERTIVE! BE ASSURED! AND BE THE ONE TO LIFT SOMEONE UP BEFORE THEY ARE DOWN. Remember the world owes you nothing, but YOU owe yourself everything. Stay strong and keep riding my smile train.

When you know that feeling and can be alone with only yourself and silence... that is magical.Here's wishing you some magic.Teri [...]

Because it was "the right thing to do"

When I walked into the feed store, I didn’t expect anything life provoking to happen. I was going to order eight fifty pound sacks rye grass seed for our farm. The aisles are narrow and I moved over to accommodate a man in bib overalls coming by me. At the counter was a man in his 70’s wearing a [...]

EVERY day is Father's Day!

Happy Father's Day..... we buried my daddy the day before Father's Day in 1991. He was killed in a car wreck. Ironically, I had given him his card early saying "I didn't want to be late." I think about that... and how he replied "That's just like you, Teri... you always say that every day [...]
