Yes! I found the focus for this blog. I am always impressed by the series of TV ads placed by the Foundation for a Better Life. If you read their website, they don't accept donations. All this independently run concept charity asks is for every person on the planet to take those values we all cherish and utilize them in our daily lives.
And as I've considered one topic after another for this blog, I am usually faced with one truth, I don't want to turn this blog into a place to whine...it's not becoming and there's far too much of that on this planet. So, I will use this space to talk about what makes me happy, what I saw today that made me smile...or made somebody else smile.
We forget, but there are many kindnesses that are extended from one human to another each and every day. Strangers are kinder than we'd believe, due to the nightly news with stories of murder, war, theft. There're far too many places for you and me to learn about that. So, here will be a good place.
For today's daily victory I'll share something I saw between two of my employees: One a teenaged girl, the other a young asian immigrant. They were leaving for the night and chattering away. When they passed me, she kept repeating the word 'vocabulary'. He was attempting to say it. She spelled it out. He spelled it out. They sounded out the word together...it has a couple sounds difficult to say. He said it very slowly by himself.
"There you go!" She smiled. "You got it!"
He thanked her and left for the night.
They're not particular friends. Just co-workers. People with good hearts. One wanted to help, the other was willing to accept the olive branch.
And that is today's daily victory.
The picture? I'll be using pics from my vacations...they made me smile at one point. I hope they'll make you smile, too.
Share your daily victories! I'll post them :)
Have a great day.
