For goodness' sake.

You may have seen billboards like these around town:

But maybe you weren't sure what it was about or from whom. Well, there's actually a privately-funded non-profit organization whose sole purpose is to publicize good principles. Nifty, huh? The Foundation for a Better Life has some very inspirational ideas on their site. Just a great place to visit if you need a little pick-me-up. They have tons of quotes, billboards, TV & radio spots. I really like this TV spot and this one, too. (It may take a long time to see these if you're on dial-up.) You can read inspiring little stories from other people or leave stories of your own. I think its a fantastic effort to combat all the junk that gets publicized.

Maybe this week, we could each choose one of these principles to make our focus for the month of July. I chose "vision." What's yours?

“Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.”

—Dr. Leonardo Buscaglia (1924-1998), professor, author

I heard it said once that in an interview with Helen Keller she was asked, "What could be worse than being blind?" She responded, "Having sight with no vision!"

Mine is forgiveness...Thanks for sharing Megan. I have actually seen a few of these commercials, but never really paid attention to them before.

It was great to see you this weekend. I proudly wore my Kyrie tee today...think I'll have some more orders coming to you soon! :)

Big Love,
