Third idea: look for and enjoy the unexpected. Little surprise gifts come along every day. Imagine this episode: at 6 a.m. Saturday morning, 7/22/2017, I opened the back door of the house to get some fresh morning air. That in itself brought a sense of relief.
Then the unexpected: I noticed a tiny 1" tree frog at eye level on the inside of the storm door screen. How did it get there? Can I photograph it, I wondered?
Below: an answer to the question. I did manage to get a photo or two. Then, within seconds the frog JUMPED five feet to the concrete below and seconds later was gone. I'd had a mini-adventure. Frog did too, no doubt. Can you find the frog in the photos?
Sixth: Give thanks for the integrity--yes, the courage--of all the senators, Democratic and especially Republican, who voted against the "Scuttle Obamacare" bill.
Do remember the devoted public servants--people serving in our national public institutions in a chaotic situation. Pray for them that they'll have strength to continue with integrity now and personal job fulfillment at last. That will have a benefit for you, too: the satisfaction of knowing that you're helping others as you're able.
