Think happy thoughts

Watch your thoughts; they become words.  Watch your words; they become actions.  Watch your actions; they become habits.  Watch your habits; they become your character.  Watch your chatacter; it becomes your destiny

I went to the dentist this week.  I have been having headaches, and tooth pain and wanted to find out the cause.  The dentist said there was nothing wrong with my teeth, but I have been clenching them so tightly that it has been causing these headaches.  (Not my migraines, just regular headaches) 

For 4 days I had been suffering terrible pain and getting no sleep because of my own actions?  That made me think about how our disposition can affect our physical being. 

I had been concentrating on my stresses and letting those thoughts get to me.  Those negative thoughts turned into negative actions (clenching my teeth) leading to physical pain. 

So even though life is tough sometimes, I am going to try to think happy thoughts and make an effort to keep my disposition pleasant and hope that it will lead to less pain. 

Funny how something so small can really affect you!  So, everyone KEEP SMILING and think happy thoughts.  No frowning, no clenching.

Sharing = caring

If I find something that I love I like to share it.  SO, if you haven't heard of Pinterest, let me take a moment to share this with you.  Pinterest is a website that gives us the ability to "pin" anything we see on the web, and collect them on our own page for whenever we need them.  Thought I'd share some of the wonderful things I have found there.

Adorable...a great way to affirm your kids with something specific each day!
Dry erase, b/c every day there are new things we love about each other

So, if you enjoyed any of these cool ideas and you haven't joined the Pinterest craze, perhaps you should head over there and try it out.  You can always check out more of my pins by clicking on the red Pinterest button here at the blog.

Megan the Animal Rescuer!

My daughter had quite the experience a few weeks ago.  In the little city I live in we received some snow.  Apparently there are some birds who are still flying south for the winter, (shouldn't they have arrived south a long time ago, it's the middle of winter...?). 

Anyways, hundreds of them landed all around town due to the snow fall.  Not knowing this, I went out in my back yard to tell my dog to stop barking, and see her scaring the begeebees out of one of these birds.  Well, Megan goes into rescue-hero mode, and wants to save the poor little bird.  However, she is quite upset, and afraid, that her own dog might eat the bird, (In reality the dog is not much bigger than the bird, not really going to happen).

So Megan is chasing the dog, and trying to calm down the bird, and all in all handling the situation pretty well for a 5 year old rescue hero, except for the spurts of frantic crying. 

This continues until daddy gets home, and of course he knows exactly what to do.  Dad and daughter rescue the bird from the terrible dog, put it in a large rubber maid container of safety, and take it to the rescue shelter, which, by the way was packed with tons of cars dropping off these birds. 

Now Megan considers herself an animal rescuer, and is quite proud of herself.
 Megan taking good care of the bird.

On a side note, the next day she said maybe we should have taken the bird to "Bulldogs Meats" (our local make-your-own-meat store.  We drive by the signs for it on our way to school every day, and DADDY told her in a kid-friendly way what they do there).  I asked her "um, didn't you want to rescue the bird?" After all she did have a huge meltdown about our dog eating it.  Then she remembered, and was happy with her actions.  Yay! 

The End.
