Scrooge is alive and well in my town!

While leaving the post office, satisfied that all cards and packages had been successfully mailed…I walked out the doors and saw an older man walking slowly and using his hand to balance himself against the buildings wall. 

It was slippery, so I came over and offered to help him to the entrance. I was verbally accosted by either his frustration or anger. He said quite loudly….”GET OUTTA HERE…..WHAT BULLSHIT!!!!”

It was clear he did not want help. I backed away and thought….that is one unhappy man. Whether he is that way all the time I don’t know. But the name Ebeneezer Scrooge, sure came to mind.

This time of year is hectic for all of us….but even more so in our family with my husband having a birthday on December 23rd. He calls it 48 hours of  decadency!!

We have good friends who have 3 birthdays in December and a Wedding Anniversary. Now that makes for an intense month. But they make it work every year…and they love it!

Remember always make it work for you…so that in return you can make it work for others. What goes around, truly comes around when treated with respect and positive attitude.

Now that is the RIGHT attitude! Making your day special, no matter what time of the year it is!

Keepin’ the attitude….

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

The days are getting a bit intense, but this I found interesting from the "Blog Squad."

Following is a quick response that I did to the queen of the blogs…..”The Blog Squad“….Patsi was stating the importance of adding personality to your blog. I think you will find this interesting:
