I’m not really sure who said this quote but I’ve always liked it and it does bring positive vibes. The quote goes something like this: A smile will give you less wrinkles than what a frown will. Below is a quote I found online and would like to share with everyone. I’ll be honest, I had trouble picking from all the positive quotes so I went with these three.

MY BEAUTIFUL STORY:

I was in college and one of my professors took the class to hear Maya Angelou speak. After we listened to her speak we had the opportunity to ask questions and meet her. She was quite a lady. I learned a lot from her. I wrote a post called WHAT MEETING MAYA ANGELOU DID FOR ME .

I not only got to hear Maya Angelou speak but I got to meet her too. Boy was I excited. I learned lots just by listening to her.

One of the main things I learned from her and learned growing up is when someone puts you down smile at them and tell them you hope they have a great day. You will not only surprise them but you’ll find it’ll make your day better too. Also, remember that a good attitude is always better than a poor attitude.

Have a great day everyone.

MABEAUTILITY’S QUESTIONS AND MY ANSWERS(MY ANSWERS WILL BE IN ITALICS):

  1. What is the most nice thing had said to you in your life? I have had several nice things said to me but the one that stands out is a professor that told me I’d never pass his class. I stayed and stuck his class out and after the semester was over he told me he was glad that I stuck his class out and he was happy for me. I remember this situation for that reason.
  2. What has been your most beautiful dream ever? I don’t really dream so I can’t answer this question.
  3. What is your biggest goal in life? To make people happy and live a happy, healthy and safe life. 

NOW MY THREE QUESTIONS FOR MY NOMINEES:

  1. Have you ever been in a situation and how was it resolved positively for you?
  2. What do you want your legacy to say about you?
  3. What are your New Year’s Resolutions and Goals?

(Don’t hate, appreciate and share positive vibes!)

A TRIBUTE TO SHANDAR

 

DSCN0382I wrote a short poem about my dog Shandar who died. I called it A TRIBUTE TO SHANDAR.

Shandar~You came into our lives as an Alaskan Malamute puppy dog~Your dad was a champion and a Kal-Kan dog~You were the runt of the litter~You were a possible show dog~And not Expected to get as big as you got. ~ You took us for walks~You pounced on our beds and Pillows ~Chewed blankets ~ But all in all~You were a dog with a good disposition.

Shandar~You will be sadly missed but not forgotten~ You are forever in our hearts and Always be.~ Thank you for the many years of love and being our pet.~They were not only joyous~But they were also a blessing.

 

Please forgive the yellowing around the edges of this picture. On 11-9-1989, I drew this picture of my dog who passed away. I thought it was a fitting tribute to her.
