It takes hands to build a house, but only hearts can build a home.

Chapter 5, Page 4, Book 12
Watching the sun set at the camper
Happiness comes only when we push our brains and hearts to the farthest reaches of which we are capable.
Put your best effort into your daily tasks.
Two mothers are having a conversation about their children one day.
How do you get your Marvin up so early on school mornings? asks Joan.
Oh, that's easy, replies Marianne. I just throw the cat on his bed.
Why does that wake him up?
He sleeps with the dog!
I hope it doesn't take actions like this to get you out of bed every morning! I've been a pretty early riser for some years now and love the idea of waking up refreshed and ready for each new day.
Most of the time when I go to bed at night I'm exhausted from all my efforts of the day, but the fantastic rest I get each night seems to heal all the aches and pains and somehow I get out of bed ready to face whatever comes my way. It is a blessing to get a good nights rest. I am aware that many do not.
When I say I'm too blessed to be stressed, I often mean I've been so busy that stress has no time to work it's way with me. I just do what I can gladly, untill I can't do any more and then sleep comes with blessed rest for me.
Fridays are always great in my books. This one is no different, except that I am where I love to be...at the camper. I'm not getting much rest though as there is lots to do here.
Maybe I'll be seeing some of my weekend friends. The ones I've gotten to know and love that are my part time neighbors here at the camper. But maybe they'll be busy with other things and not come in at all. Either way, it'll be a FANTASTIC day here for me!
Hope your Friday is a fantastic one too...no matter what you do.
Do what you love, love what you do...and all good things are yours!
