Be Happy!


Most people are about as happy as they make up their minds to be.
- A. Lincoln


So...
Put a smile on your face.
Count your blessings.
Stop feeling sorry for yourself.
Do something nice for someone else.

I promise, you'll have a great weekend.



Linking my pink zinnias and glads to Pink Saturday at How Sweet The Sound.

  5. Amen! It's easier to smile than frown, and just as easy to see the 'up' side of a day than the 'down' side.

  8. I love that quote and it's so true! I also enjoyed reading your Beatrix Potter post. My boys had the Peter Rabbit mugs with the rimmed cereal bowls; gifts from their grandparents. I have since passed them on to their little guys. Happy weekend.

    Blessings,

  9. Beautiful flowers! My dad used to tell us Lincoln's quote on happiness all the time. Then he would say, "Life is what you make of it." So hope you have a wonderful weekend and great next week!

  11. What a lovely bouquet and sentiment. I'm guessing the bouquet must be from your garden? Fresh flowers are such a wonderful way to brighten the home!
