I'm feeling like NOT being a bum today.

So, I've been kinda a bum. So, I'm sorry. I won't be little Miss Complain-y Pants.

This post is going to be short and sweet.

Quote of the Day:
If the grass is greener on the other side, maybe that’s because you’re not taking good care of your grass.

Scripture of the Day: Ether 12:4
4. Wherefore, whoso believeth in God might with surety hope for a better world, yea, even a place at the right hand of God, which hope cometh of faith, maketh an anchor to the souls of men, which would make them sure and steadfast, always abounding in good works, being led to glorify God.

Song of the Day: Heart of Life-John Mayer

Poem of the Day: The Oak Tree by Johnny Ray Ryder Jr .

A mighty wind blew night and day
It stole the oak tree's leaves away
Then snapped its boughs and pulled its bark
Until the oak was tired and stark

But still the oak tree held its ground
While other trees fell all around
The weary wind gave up and spoke.
How can you still be standing Oak

The oak tree said, I know that you
Can break each branch of mine in two
Carry every leaf away
Shake my limbs, and make me sway

But I have roots stretched in the earth
Growing stronger since my birth
You'll never touch them, for you see
They are the deepest part of me

Until today, I wasn't sure
Of just how much I could endure
But now I've found, with thanks to you
I'm stronger than I ever knew


  1. Totally just stole your quote of the day, I love it. And it's so true. People need to reap what they sew, and if they don't like it, sew something new.

    Cute blog, following you!!

  2. Your blog is super cute! I love your attitude too! I'm a big "mind over matter" person and too many people waste time dwelling. Good for you! And clever name too- I love it!
    Did you design your blog yourself or have it done? It's really cute.

  3. I loved the "grass is greener" quote! Its so easy to get down on your situations and that is a really insightful way to look at it. Glad you shared!

    Just found your blog and I am excited to follow!
