I would like to dedicate my post to a dear friend, Misty Thieman. She is spending her time in blogland Encouraging Sweetness. Her posts are the highlight of my days, and every time I see she has a new one on FB, I rush to read it. I would encourage all of my readers to check out her blog, where reading her sweet humor and articulate writing is a big scoop of ice cream on top of an apple pie. Hers is the only blog that I will find a way to link to...even though I am technically challenged.
Normally, my personality is one of kindness and patience...but I have to admit I look like Darth Vader compared to her rose-colored glasses. This is NOT a criticism. It is a delight! Since I know the world at large has a tendency toward cynicism and "me-ism" I find her outlook to be refreshing. Practicing the challenge of finding the good in every day is one that I would love to do daily. Not only for the improvement of my own life, but to pay it forward to others who need it as much as I. Oneladyarts is a venue for me to share a bit of myself with others, but I would say Misty's goal is a bit more far-reaching, and her insight a valuable and profound way to make life happy. God Bless You, Misty! May encouraging sweetness revisit itself on you exponentially.
