Change a Light Day
Change out your bulbs today to ones that are rated for energy efficiency.  And as an extra tip, when you leave a room turn off the light!  That saves energy as well. *wink*

Improve Your Office Day
Since April 2013 I've had an office space to call my own and to "personalize." About 9 months in I finally hung up a calendar I had bought with pictures I liked. But I have these two big blank walls, well actually three, that just sit there. I could care less. Finally at the end of 2014 my COO asked if he could hang a large clock from IKEA on the largest blank wall. I gave permission, clearly I had done nothing with the space!  I like the clock and it serves as a joke. I guess I just don't care. Yes I spend 8 hours a day, 5 days a week in this space but it's not my life. But just about a month ago I finally sucked it up and decorated. There were so many ways I could have gone and when I finally decided on my "theme" I took it as far as I thought I could!  I used my office space walls to tell a story of what is sunshine on my cloudy days and to remind me of what's the most important to my heart.

What about you? Do you live in an office space or cubicle that you have or haven't personalized? Today is a day to make a change if you would like!

World Animal Day
Today was set aside in conjunction with the Feast Day of St Francis of Assisi.
St Francis of Assisi was a champion of God's creation, especially animals.
Blessing of the Animals
I confess. I'm a HUGE fan of St Francis of Assisi.  I love the ministry he had and how it has continued into today. I didn't know much about him until I watched a movie about him a few years ago.  It made me an even bigger fan of his!

Today I want to celebrate transformation - the work we have each put in day after day, month after month, year after year to become not who we were. Let me say this - there is no shame in who we were because that was the hurt us - the baggage laden us - the angry us. And we've done the work so let's celebrate who we aren't and who we now are!  The song above is all about being transformed - from the choices to let go of pain and find healing. It inspired something called cardboard testimonies which I personally love. A way to share your story in one or two sentences/phrases. I don't know about you but I love not being who I was. I still have work to do but I love looking back and seeing the transformation I've gone through thus far. 

Here's some inspiration - yes, a lot of it is faith based (okay maybe all of it) but if you don't subscribe to a faith that's okay! You still have a cardboard testimony. 


So in case *you* didn't know...I have a wee obsession with the TV show Friends. Nothing that requires an intervention...well at least I don't think so. *wink*

Today's #FRIENDSFriday is all about how well do you, or I, know the show? It's time for a little Friends Trivia!

And in keeping with the trivia focus today here's a clip of one of my most favorite episodes of Friends that features one of the best games of trivia ever!

Watching my brothers become Uncles - thanks to my oldest redhead - has been one of the best things in my life. It was through their interactions with her from the moment she was born until present day that made me see the men they were growing up to be and what kind of Father's they would be to their own children someday. It takes nothing at all for me to think back to those days when she was an itty-bitty and my brothers - who had no experience with babies - took on soothing her when she cried, changing her diapers, helping feed her, and just snuggling. Mushy gushy heart.

What makes you sentimental today?
