Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — Despite Christmas decorations already “peeking around the corners” of stores, it’s still not too late to place heart-warming fall decorations in and around your home or office to help you savor harvest time. Remember, Thanksgiving is coming soon too! The fragrance of an apple cinnamon or pumpkin spice candle can do wonders for calming your soul; so can a fall bonfire. Try it sometime!
I recently found laughter in an everyday life moment and I invite you to keep your mind and heart open to the same.
A new friend and I love walking the Erie Canal towpath. She spurs me on to a better workout, and I am encouraged to walk faster when I walk with her. We started out on what seemed like a brisk sunny morning. As the wind picked up, we pulled hoods and hats closer around us and pressed on. The wind became a gentle sprinkle, and by the time we were walking back, we realized that we were now “power-walking” in the torrential downpour of an autumn rainstorm.
I couldn’t help but look around and point out to her that we were the only ones out walking in the now-horrendous weather. It was hilarious!
There is humor in everyday life. We just have to look for it.Jackie Davis is an inspirational vocalist, musician and speaker with more than 20 years of television broadcast experience. Contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
