No Fool Here...............

This week it occurred to me that ....we can't give what we don't have! So let's go ahead and fill our hearts with joy and happiness, and a little compassion too....so that we can share it with others...and when the stars line up correctly, it'll make it's way back to us!


So in order to cap off my "smile tank" I like to watch YouTube videos while on the treadmill (and who are we kidding, also to help pass the time) Today my videos of choice were "Flash Mob" videos. One of my favorites is a Sound of Music one taking place in a train station.


I think the reason I like watching them so much, is how I feel when seeing the expressions on the bystanders as this unexpected interruption in their routine unfolds in front of them. It takes them from "keeping to themselves" to becoming unified in a moment with others that feels good. Seeing that makes me feel happy and puts a smile on my face.

Makes sense to me, good things happen when we step out of our social comfort zone...to touch the lives of others..... as we enhance our own! Guess it goes back to what my Mama taught me..."treat others the way you want to be treated" and let me just say...... "my Mama didn't raise no fool' "!


If you want to check out the Flash Mob video on YouTube you can find it at:

Your messages and insights are always so refreshing...i came across something that brought you to my mind immediately- you have probably seen it before but I just have to tell you it could have been written of you.
"life is an echo. What you send out, comes back. What you sow, you reap. What you give, you get.What you see in others exists in you!"
Your family is so lucky and blessed to have you in thier lives. Your parents sure 'done good'!
love you!
