Happy Hour Time

HAPPY HOUR TIME 
Happy All Saints Day and Happy Friday! I hope everyone had a wonderful Halloween with many wonderful memories to look back on. It was so windy where I live, in Nashville, but all in all I had a pretty great Halloween night. I can’t believe October has come and gone, but I love the start of November; everyone starts to get in the holiday spirit, plus November 1 is the first day you may officially listen to Christmas music {or at least it is in my book}. Farwell to October, hello to November, and Cheers to a terrific weekend and holiday season ahead of us!

“People are often unreasonable, illogical and self-centered. Forgive them anyway. If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish motives. Be kind anyway. If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some trust enemies. Succeed Anyway. What you spend your years building, someone could destroy overnight; build anyway. If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous; be happy anyway. The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow; do good anyway. Give the world the best you have and it my not be enough; give them your best anyway. In the final analysis, it is between you and God; it was never between you and them anyway.”
~ Mother Teresa
