I firmly believe in small gestures…

I also believe in small gestures.

White Rose Mari

I firmly believe in small gestures: pay for their coffee, hold the door for strangers, over tip, smile or try to be kind evenwhen you don’t feel like it, pay compliments, chase the kid’s runaway ball down the sidewalk and throw it back to him, try to be larger than you are – particularly when it’s difficult. People do notice, people appreciate.I appreciate it when it’s done to (for) me. Small gestures can be an effort, or actually go against our grain

(“I’m not a big one for paying compliments…”), but the irony is that almost every time you make them, you feel better about yourself.

For a moment life suddenly feels lighter.

I’m a happily married, retired mother of two adults & grandmother of four children. Adjusted at last to my move from WA state & all the green trees & abundant moisture to a different beauty of desert mountains in AZ. The winters in the Mojave Desert are bliss, the 127 degree summers are a test. It is a climate change for sure. I’ve learned to bloom where I’m planted. I must remember, plants have roots, people have legs & to use mine! I am an avid reader of almost all genres & usually have a baker’s dozen books being read at the same time. I craft greeting cards & enjoy sharing my creativity with family & friends. I also surf the internet looking for artists, photographs, quotes, etc. for my Joy is a Choice! Choose Joy Moment by Moment webpage. http://www.facebook.com/Joyisachoice I also make online jigsaw puzzles. http://www.facebook.com/Injoyspuzzlesforfun I'm a voracious reader & have started a book review page on facebook. I now have the freedom to read all night long, should I so choose & don't suffer the repercussions since I can nap the following day. It's the best time of my life.
