The Law of the Garbage Truck

Every day I walk in to the little room where our microwave is at work to warm up my food and I see this little pearl. Every day I think to myself, "I really need to blog that" and then I forget. Seriously this one of the best things I've read and really puts you in perspective. I thought everyone out there in blog land could use it :)


The Law of the Garbage Truck...

"One day I hopped in a taxi and we took off for the airport. We were driving in the right lane when suddenly a black car jumped out of a parking space right in front of us. My taxi driver slammed on his breaks, skidded, and missed the other car by just inches! The driver of the other car whipped his head around and started yelling at us. My taxi driver just smiled and waved at the guy. And I mean, he was really friendly. So I asked, 'Why did you just do that? This guy almost ruined your car and sent us to the hospital!' This is when my taxi driver taught me what I now call, 'The Law of the Garbage Truck.'

He explained that many people are like garbage trucks. They run around full of garbage, full of frustration, full of anger, and full of disappointment. As their garbage piles up, they need a place to dump it and sometimes they'll dump it on you. Don't take it personally.

Just smile, wave, wish them well, and move on. Don't take their garbage and spread it to other people at work, at home or on the streets. The bottom line is that successful people do not let garbage trucks take over their day. Life's too short to wake up in the morning with regrets, so..... 'Love the people who treat you right.. Pray for the ones who don't.'

Life is ten percent what you make it and ninety percent how you take it.


I have no idea where this came from or who wrote it. And it might be some famous thing I'm just now learning about, but I couldn't not share it. 

Have a great day y'all!

Maximillion Keychain Giveaway!

I have a fantastic giveaway for y'all today!!

I ordered my mom one of these keychains from Maximillion on Etsy for Christmas...

My mom absolutely loved it and my sister even requested one for the next holiday :)

Debby was SO great to work with and even gave me a a background of her store.

She actually has 3 different sites:
and of course her Etsy store where I found her

This is what she told me about her store:

"Before I made jewelry, I led philanthropy clubs for kids for 10 years...the group was called the Kindness Club....kind of like a brownie troop but performed random acts of kindness for each other, the school, the community, the needy, the elderly, and responded to some world crises as well.  That's why my business is called Kindness Chains,  I normally market through home parties and give the hostess 15% of my sales towards free jewley, a donation to her favorite registered charity, or a combination of both.  I've been able to give to a lot of charities to continue the Kindness Club philosophy.
My Etsy shop is called Maximillion because my dad was Max and my mom is Mil.  I had a business with my sister....we used to paint tee-shirts...and we called it Maximillion Designs.  I just wanted to carry that on a bit even though the actual name of the company is Kindness Chains."

Debby has been so kind and offered to give one of my readers this beautiful heart keychain just in time for Valentines Day! 

So what do you do to enter??

Good Luck!!

NYE Way Late

Guess, who's finally blogging about New Years Eve 3 weeks late. 


Life has gotten in the way of blogging but I wanted to share the fun pics I had from NYE.

We showed up at our friends house that night and were so surprised when they brought out a cake and gifts! This was the first time to see most of our friends since our engagement and it was so fun celebrating with them. We have the best friends y'all! 

They stole the picture off my blog/facebook and got it printed for this frame :) 

Then it was time for fireworks...

And John popped the top on the champagne...

Our first NYE engaged!!!! :) 
(no fancy clothes or sparkles for me, we had just gotten out of the car after a 5 hour trip!)
