“Whine with Cheese”

It seems to me that we are becoming a nation of whiners. (I think that a friend, Lisa Richey, came up with my title for this post, making a handmade paper poster years ago with this phrase.)

I can only listen to the news for a short time these days, with the concentration on victim-hood, claims of ‘distortion of the facts’ and things done for ‘political purposes’ from BOTH sides of what passes for Congress nowadays. I check several sources for my news now, and sometimes STILL am not sure what actually happened when I finish.

I choose to try to look toward the light, rather than become mired in the muck. I admit that is probably an ostrich-with-my-head-in-the-sand or Pollyanna-ish, but I want to concentrate on what is right, good, and inspiring – and happily, it’s going on all around us. :0)

There are people who are doing good things – quiet things – things where some kindness changes another person’s day. There are people creating art, seeing things differently than the rest of us, making something breathtaking out of what might be ordinary materials. There are others practicing singing, dancing, or athletics, so when they get their chance, they are ready to give it their all, bringing us to joy or tears when they share it.

Joel Osteen said it succinctly – “If you cannot be positive, then at least be quiet.”

Let It Snow!

Southern Living

I’ve never seen this quote by Kahlil Gibran before. I really like it. :0)

I wish the world a kindness pandemic – where each person feels a real need to be kind to everyone. I want it to start with me and infect people in rings that spread all the way across the planet. I hope there were no vaccine for it and that, once you are infected, you can’t get rid of it. Let it snow!
