Thoughts at the end of the day

It's not really the end of the day - but I am getting ready to shut down - and I wanted to write down something that I read on another blog (3 for 365). Apparently it is from Disney's Keys to Excellence:

S - Smile

E - Eye contact/body language

R - Respect and welcome

V - Value the magic (my favorite)

I - Iniatate guest contact

C - Create service solutions

E - End with a thank you

These are so simple and yet really perfect for our homelife and work world. I wrote them out in my sketch book and will probably make room for them on my refrigerator.

Oh - wait - do I hear my daughters groaning because I mentioned my refrigerator door that holds all the important sayings, verses, photos of my life - I am just laughing to myself because I really tried to keep it pristine when I first moved in and then "poof" it was fully covered!!! Right now the bottom part is empty because my grandson "cleaned" it while he was here visiting - don't worry girls - everything was saved and is sitting on top of the microwave - I am hearing more groans because they know on top of the microwave sits a perfectly sized green wooden tray that holds "stuff."

Last "word" for today: Joy is the best cosmetic for a woman. Rosalind Russell

Our fridge used to be like that - so we bought a cork board instead!

Can't buy cork - I am too heavily invested in magnets! : )

I wanted to thank you for stopping by my blog the other day. I hope you got a good laugh!

I love the SERVICE idea. It definitely comes in handy with my line of work. Thanks for sharing. Your blog has a wonderful serenity about it. I'm happy I stopped by!

If there was a hurricane I would expect that you would rip that fridge door off before running for safety...I always thought I wanted a clean fridge and then I grew to realize the valuable real estate it is.
