Five Friday Happy Bringers (4/27/12)

Friday, Friday!  Here’s what I’m happy about today:

1Breakfast this morning at a cool diner on Abercorn (here in Savannah), named–appropriately–The Diner on Abercorn.

2.  The following quote from one of my creative writing students this semester.  (Part of a reflection letter with one of the assignments.)

“I would recommend my friends take this class, but only my magical friends.  Not the dull, unimaginative type.”

3.  This invention from my just-turned-five grandson Daniel:

He calls it a Mouth Shutter.  Daniel explained it this way–“If somebody is talking or yelling, and you don’t want to listen to them anymore, put this on their mouth and they will shut up.”

Here’s the back of the Mouth Shutter, with tape for securing to the loud person’s mouth:

This makes SO much practical sense to me.

4.  This right-on-the-mark quote from the Abraham-Hicks folks:

“A very good career choice would be to gravitate toward those activities and to embrace those desires that harmonize with your core intentions, which are freedom and growth—and joy. Make a ‘career’ of living a  happy life rather than trying to find work that will produce enough income that  you can do things with your money that will then make you happy. When feeling  happy is of paramount importance to you—and what you do ‘for a living’ makes  you happy—you have found the best of all combinations.

5The promise of weekend.

HAVE A TERRIFIC ONE!

    • Well, you see, Daniel and I need to have a substantial profit margin, so I’m afraid lending isn’t available.
