Thought for the Day...I Mean Year!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!
This is a re-post from September.
I had only been blogging for about 10 days and
had no idea what I was doing
(I'm still not sure exactly what I am doing!).
As I try to regroup and refocus for 2010,
I thought I would share it again because I really
did love this little tidbit...
and it is something I always need to be reminded of!
Enjoy!




 I have a tendency to overcommit. Good news is I usually always "over-deliver." Bad news is I sometimes don't know which end is up.

Well, yesterday I was opening a can of tomato sauce for my Turkey Meatloaf - it only called for 1/4 cup - and I was being lazy, careless, wasteful (pick a name, any name!) and turned to rinse out the can (so I could recycle it, of course!) with 3/4 of the sauce still in it, because I was in a hurry. I didn't have time to get a container out and save it - I am a busy mom!
Well, I caught myself and thought that was dumb. Then I thought I was crazy having this "moment" over some canned tomato sauce.

Anyway, for some reason this tomato sauce incident spoke to me. I packed it up and put it in the frig (to add to some pasta sauce this weekend) and have been thinking about being more thoughtful ever since...more thoughtful to what my kids really need, to what my husband needs, my neighbors, and my friends...and yes, even myself.

I urge everyone to just be more thoughtful in their day, you never know what it means to someone else. Even just experiencing excellent customer service when I got my MOCHA!, or when I was at the home improvement store changed my outlook on a crazy morning.

Think about how you can be more thoughtful and what that could mean to someone else? Anyone have any stories to share?

Ok, this is as about as deep as I get publicly, so don't get used to it.
