Make Someone Happy

Make someone happy.
Make just one someone happy.
And you will be happy too.

— Betty Comden and Adolph Green
Music by Jule Styne

One of the blessings of having some time off is the opportunity to see a movie – or two.  During the holiday season, I saw Arthur Christmas.  This is truly a Christmas classic to be.  Created by the makers of Chicken Run, Arthur Christmas imagines how the Claus family now uses technology to make sure that no child is disappointed on Christmas morning.  Unfortunately, like many technical solutions, this one has Continue reading » Make Someone Happy

It’s COLD Out There!

Is it too cold for you too?

Winter is hear and I’m COLD! Brrrhhh!

Oops, I’m so cold I have brain freeze – I meant “here” not “hear”.

Lately I’ve been longing for a quick jaunt to my favorite winter getaway – anywhere with beaches still warm and balmy… But “getaway” isn’t in the tea leaves for me this winter. I’m officially “home for the holidays” – so my next best and “doable” choice is a good, long soak in a HOT tub… Or a Continue reading » It’s COLD Out There!

I run out of day before I run out of To-Do’s – how about you?

Back in June I saved a Family Circus cartoon that made me smile.  Cuddled in her Father’s arms, nightgown-clad little Dolly, tells him:

Mommy says it’s bedtime… but I wasn’t through with today yet.

That pretty much describes my day: it’s late evening but there’s still so much left on my To-Do list – leftovers I ambitiously thought I’d have finished by now.  Much like little Dolly, I’m just Continue reading » May You Have Enough…

Appreciate What You Have

Appreciation is a wonderful thing: It makes what is excellent in others belong to us as well.

— Voltaire

How do we survive adversity?  What is the difference between surviving and thriving?

I believe the difference is in how we tell our story.  And often, the story we tell is the one we inherited.

My mother grew up in the depression.  She was one of those people who remembered the depression as being an awful time.  There were four of them, my grandfather and grandmother, my aunt and Mom.  To hear her tell the story, life was Continue reading » Appreciate What You Have

Do you know what you want?  Then ask for it!

Everything you want is out there waiting for you to ask.

— Jack Canfield

Yep, last week PattiAnn and Ellie needed (and took) a short spring break. And, break or no break, we didn’t want you to be disappointed when you dipped back into BouncebackCafe.com this week.  So we collaborated on this post beforehand; we do hope you enjoy the following Continue reading » Ask for Ice Cream!

Cup o’ Inspiration

Take a short break and consider the following:

“You can’t help someone get up a hill without getting closer to the top yourself.”
