Remember the Sweet Things
The best way for a person to have happy thoughts is to count his blessings and not his cash. ~Author Unknown
This is a repeat of an old post but one I think is really special ~ Rev Kane
First I have to thank a friend, Krissy for providing the link I’m going to share with you today. The link below is to a site that offers an audio recording from a story teller about riding the bus one day. On that day, on that bus, he encounters an old Jewish man who produces for him an orange and asks him what he thinks of it. The younger man doesn’t think much of the orange, it’s an orange. The old man goes on to explain what an orange is and can be, the clip is a six minute listen and if I may be so bold will be the six most intense and thought provoking moments of your day, give it a listen:
Hey you, yes you, the person who just skipped over the link because you don’t really have six whole minutes to spend on listening to a story about an orange, shut your office door, turn off the TV, or whatever can distract you and listen, six most intense, thought provoking and beautiful minutes of your day.
Remember the sweet things, the things that taste sweet, that look sweet, the sweet moments of your day, your life and even more importantly provide a sweet thing or moment for someone else. Maybe it’s a friend or a relative’s birthday. Well take a minute and don’t just leave happy birthday on their phone, let it all hang out, sing happy birthday with all of your might, out of tune and ridiculously and give them a really sweet happy birthday. Even just a hug today, unexpectedly and out of the blue for someone can be the sweetest thing, you never know what the person next to you is going through and that hug can be a sweet thing for them to remember and can make them have a happy day my friends ~ Rev Kane
Let us be grateful to people who make us happy, they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom. ~Marcel Proust
