Attitude is EVERYTHING!

There once was a woman who woke up one morning, looked in the mirror,and noticed she had only three hairs on her head.Well,” she said, “I think I’ll braid my hair today.” So she did and she had a wonderful day.

The next day she woke up, looked in the mirror,and saw that she had only two hairs on her head.”H-M-M,” she said, “I think I’ll part my hair down the middle today.”So she did and she had a grand day.

The next day she woke up,looked in the mirror and noticed that she had only one hair on her head.”Well,” she said, “today I’m going to wear my hair in a pony tail.”So she did and she had a fun, fun day.

The next day she woke up, looked in the mirror,and noticed that there wasn’t a single hair on her head “YEA!” she exclaimed,”I don’t have to fix my hair today!”

Attitude is EVERYTHING! 🙂

The LORD is my God! I will praise him and tell him how thankful I am.” Psalm 118:28 (CEV)

This day belongs to the LORD! Let’s celebrate and be glad today.” Psalm 118:24 (CEV)

This is my plan for the day! How about you?
With love… Jennifer

  5. I love the attitude story….Yea, no hair! You are so right about a positive attitude. As the mother of 2 preteen girls, I am always trying to come up with reasons for a positive attitude. Being a preteen/teen girl is tough. God bless you for making me laugh out loud today!

  15. Cute story to make a great point. You’re right…your outlook on the circumstances in your life have a MAJOR impact…not just on you, but those around you. I also try to remember that it’s easy to be happy when things are going well–so when it gets really important is when things get tough.

  16. What a fun story and so thought provoking. Thank you.

  17. very true!!! In any situation…our attitude makes all the difference..good or bad!

    Great story…so I guess I should be happy that 1/2 of my hair is straight and the other half is flipping like the 50’s…it’s all in my attitude :)!

    Have a great day, Smelling coffee!
