Monday’s “Makes Me Smile” – the woman with 3 hairs

A happy Monday & new week to you! Today’s post is an old favorite that always makes me smile… as well as reminding me of a truth sometimes forgotten. May the Lord use it to encourage you today, too, my friends.  

ATTITUDE really 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…
