On the Fifth Day of Christmas..
December 29th: Day Five Five golden rings
That’s rather extreme. But family is golden, As I’m sure you’ve been told, and they’re your lifesavers, when you’re young or old. So one lifesaver is better than 5 rings. Well, I got out of that one! I’m getting good at these things.
Today is Thankful Thursday and I'm always thankful for my family. Life wouldn't be half so grand without them for sure.
We’ve all heard of the Golden Rule – that ethic of reciprocity which instructs us to treat others as we might want to be treated. Someone recently sent me this list of Golden Rules for Living. The logic is simple and refreshingly blunt. You might tack this up on your refrigerator. It applies to young or old.
Isn’t it true that very often the best advice is the most basic, too?
The Golden Rules of Living
If you open it, close it.
If you turn it on, turn it off.
If you unlock it, lock it up.
If you break it, admit it.If you borrow it, return it.
If you can’t fix it, call in someone who can.
If you value it, take care of it.
If you make a mess, clean it up.
If you move it, put it back.
If it belongs to someone else and you want to use it, get permission.
If you don’t know how to operate it, leave it alone.If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.
If it’s none of your business, don’t ask questions.If it will brighten someone’s day, say it.
If it will tarnish someone’s reputation, keep it to yourself.
There is one thing that money can't put a price on and that is friends and family. True friends, and close family are there for you through thick and thin, good days and bad. They offer support when it is needed, make us laugh, share a cry, and fill our lives with joy and a feeling that is priceless.
