AT my previous job, one of my duties was to prepare work orders for the employees. The most famous part of my work order were these words centered on the bottom:


Also, I always liked to include a short saying of some type for motivation! At that time I used a book purchased from Kohl's that had thousands to choose from....   These days, there are a couple of websites that I enjoy using when I like to include some positive inspiration in a blog post..... I know it's not my material, so I always provide the source in the form of a link of where it came from.

Hi Marilyn~ Couldn't sleep tonight so I thought I'd do some reading in AR.  Your little granddaughter is beautiful!  We have a new addition to the family my neice had a baby boy today,  what a great mothers day present for her.  Love all the flowers coming up just afraid they're all going to freeze with this crazy Michigan weather.

Hi Sue, Thank-you, I think she is a doll! How wonderful, it's always more fun to make families larger! I think the flowers survived the frost last night! It's not supposed to frost now is it? Have a great day and stop by again, I'll try to have something new for you to read!!!! If not, the choices are endless, huh!!!!
