Such a smart tea pot! I will now play "The Glad Game" all day. . . but I might need another reminder tomorrow ;)

Thanks for this post! Helps us all remember to be happy and glad (thankful too!) So be it!
Had a day full of GLAD moments!

Maria said...

Yes, Koralee...
...just like an older teapot can find new purpose ...
there is always a fresh look at life ~ the sweetest things already surround us!

This time with my father has it's challenges, {so much for us to accommodate due to his physical limitations} but it also has "little Easter moments" when I can feel myself rising up {with God's daily doses of Grace}
and
finding the sweetest things still surround me ♥
love,
Maria

That is true. When we look for good things, we find them. A glass if half full analogy.

Not only do I always find visual delight here, but so often great wisdom...even when it's not labeled as such...Strength, Beauty and Wisdom are the notes I find sung here again and again. <3 You inspire me!

I love the movie "Pollyanna", (even though the ending is sort of downer). You always have such cheerful posts! Have a great week

Roselie said...

The wisest words I 've ever read. I 've been trying to play the game ever since I read the book, not always with success but I will keep trying to find something to be glad ALWAYS, because that is the only way to be truly happy, and to help others be too along the way.

Love

Roselie

When I was younger, I loved the movie Pollyana. Must have seen it at least twenty plus times. Haley Mills so cute in it.
