Give 1 person a free "gift" today by offering to help with a task or doing a small favor.

The next time you receive praise, pledge not to minimize or downplay it - say "thanks" instead.
This took me some 50 years to learn, but I have learned how to accept praise and do it graciously.
Today's photo is another wonderful sky photo taken by a friend from their backyard.......just down the road a bit.

Do 1 thing today to more fully prepare for an upcoming event, activity, or meeting.
I have an upcoming heart procedure so I will spend some time today reading about the process and the results that I should expect.
I also have an assignment due in on Wednesday, so I had best get my reading and research done as well as an outline.
Today's photo is from the backyard of a dear friend's house........our skies are amazing at the moment.

Share 1 way that you've helped someone recently, and how it made you feel.
Many years ago I made a choice that I would help people whenever the occasion arose, and if it was within my capacity to do so. I volunteer with a couple of organisations as well as helping out several of my fathers's elderly friends on a regular basis, and help others, including complete strangers at every opportunity.
So, to only choose one would be difficult. However, I can tell you how it makes me feel. Accomplished, right with the world, valued, honoured. I am really aware that whenever I help in any capacity, it is me who gets the rewards. To be of service is deeply fulfilling.
Today's photo..........7 years ago my mother died, and my father kidnapped the month of May with his deep sorrow. So........I am reclaiming May as a month of joy. Here is my mother in all of her cheeky glory.
