To hopeful to be doubtful

To end this wonderful week on hope I’ve found a quote by Melvin J. Evans who said,

“The men (and women) who build the future are those who know that greater things are yet to come, and that they themselves will help bring them about. Their minds are illumined by the blazing sun of hope. They never stop to doubt. They haven’t time.”

They haven’t time to doubt – what a fabulous way to live!

Right now are you focused on something that excites you? Are you doing something that you are hopeful about and that makes you happy?

A friend of mine likes to say, “I’m too blessed to be stressed.”

Today let’s say, “I’m to hopeful to be doubtful.” And then it will be so.

Friday Funny:

Ed and his wife Norma go to the state fair every year,

And every year Ed would say,

“Norma, I’d like to ride in that helicopter ”

Norma always replied,

“I know Ed , but that helicopter ride is fifty bucks,

And fifty bucks is fifty bucks! ”

One year Ed and Norma went to the fair, and Ed said,

“Norma, I’m 75 years old.

If I don’t ride that helicopter, I might never get another chance.”

To this, Norma replied,

“Ed, that helicopter ride is fifty bucks, and fifty bucks is fifty bucks.”

The pilot overheard the couple and said,

“Folks, I’ll make you a deal. I’ll take the both of you for a ride. If you can stay quiet for the entire ride and don’t say a word I won’t charge you a penny!
But if you say one word it’s fifty dollars.”

Ed and Norma agreed and up they went.

The pilot did all kinds of fancy maneuvers, but not a word was heard.

He did his daredevil tricks over and over again,

But still not a word…

When they landed, the pilot turned to Ed and said,

“By golly, I did everything I could to get you to yell out, but you didn’t.
I’m impressed! ”

Ed replied,

“Well, to tell you the truth I almost said something when Norma fell out,
But you know, fifty bucks is fifty bucks! ”

You create your day by the way you think! Make it magnificent!

Blessings, Shawna
