Chapter 1, Page 12, Book 14

The difference between ordinary and extraordinary is that little extra. 

Jimmy Johnson 

Every one of us has a choice about how we want to live our lives.  We can choose to be ordinary or extraordinary.  We can add a little extra touch of kindness. Extra hugs when needed. Extra SMILES when someone is down.   And when you put a little extra into every day, you can build up enough resilience and strength to endure the bad times.

All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn’t hurt. 

Charles M. Schulz

Isn’t it true?  We all need a little extra once in awhile.  Sharing that little extra doesn’t hurt. Joy is often found in sharing.

With ordinary talent and extraordinary perseverance, all things are attainable.

Thomas Foxwell Buxton

It's a balmy 34° here this morning! The weather has been milder and I sure am glad. I'm beginning to look forward to Spring! I know you are also! Have a blessed day!

I liked that definition of extraordinary. And you are right, Ma, it doesn't take much to turn ordinary into extraordinary, especially when it comes to bring a smile or a kind word to someone who might need it.



I absolutely love this quote about extraordinary.
