Be a part of the magic of the day….
#Alzheimers #nurturedheart #GrowinGreatness
Some days, it’s a chance smile, a sigh, a mimicked wave or an “I love you” said as we touch or share a moment. I’m grateful for each of them and never take a single one for granted because tomorrow, it may be forever gone.
I hope your day is filled with particles of gratitude that will ultimately fill your heart and soul by day’s end.
“Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible.” Dalai Lama
You have started this journey of GREATNESS – and it doesn’t really matter WHERE you are, just that you keep moving forward. BE in the moment.
Last evening I had the privilege of being with some wonderful friends. Around the table, in the kitchen and shared some stories of greatness with each other – paused and took in how blessed we really are to know that it really is possible to see that GREATNESS grows deeper and the connections stronger with those very small acts.
Share the stories, write the stories – be the stories! Greatness grows!
“If you have only one smile in you give it to the people you love.” Maya Angelou
As much as I love Maya Angelou, hope she won’t mind if I tweak this one just a bit…..
“If you have only one smile in you, reach deep in your heart and share it with the world today.” You’ll get back more than you ever imagined – not only in smiles from mere strangers but there may be in one of those contacts some connection or lead that will change your life forever and for the better!

Re-framing daily situations can turn your entire world from blank wall to a marvelous canvas of beauty that can take you anywhere you want to go or the nowhere at all. I enjoy seeing the pictures that grace a friend’s home – whether they’re family photos, artworks, or works of art by their children. Even an empty frame on a wall or mantel piece allows you to breathe some Greatness into it — what will your choice be today?
“As human beings, our job in life is to help people realize how rare and valuable each one of us really is, that each of us has something that no one else has — or ever will have — something inside that is unique to all time. It’s our job to encourage each other to discover that uniqueness and to provide ways of developing its expressions.” Fred Rogers
By putting our efforts and attention into understanding what makes a person who who he/she is, we can discover the tools for an amazing life. Put away your fears; honor the being that you are. Reflect your passion and genuine caring. Broaden your heart, be your own Unique you!
“Reality is what it is, and conditions are what they are. What you expect of yourself and you expect for yourself will strongly influence what you make of your reality.” Unknown
You may not be able to change the moment, but you can influence what happens from that point forward by what you choose to do with that moment forward. Be grateful for what you do have – regardless of the circumstance. Look around and then, move forward with the following phrase:
“From this point on, I choose the greatness of …………”
