Quote of the Day------Goodreads

I found this quote to pretty much sum up what Might be "wrong" with the current American frame of mind - some of those who have so much, and yet can never find "true Happiness".

It isn't what you have or who you are or where you are or what you are doing that makes you happy or unhappy. It is what you think about it.
Dale Carnegie

When I arrived home last night, my husband said "there was a nice message from The Salvation Army on the machine".  Helping those less fortunate is who and what I am, as we have been so "blessed" by the Powers that be.

‎Life is a shipwreck, but we must not forget to sing in the lifeboats.
The author of Candide was born on this day in 1694.

Perhaps while singing, one can give Thanks for that which has been given.
