Three Quotation Thursday

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and it may be necessary from time to time to give a stupid or misinformed beholder a black eye. - Miss Piggy

I've always kind of liked Miss Piggy, but the relationship between her and Kermit creeps me out just a little. She's flighty and Kermit can do better.

Leadership is action, not position. ~ [unknown]

Yes? Yes!!

too often we underestimate
the power of a touch,
a smile a kind word,
a listening ear,
an honest compliment,
or the smallest act of caring,
all of which have the potential
to turn a life around.
-leo buscaglia

Miss Anne had this quote on her blog earlier this week and I just had to borrow it. It's amazing what a tremendous impact the smallest gesture can have. I've been trying particularly hard to do these things at work. Things are tense in our organization just now. Not BAD, just changing and conflict is essential to true and long-lasting organizational change. A smile, kind word, listening ear, small act of caring...all of these things can cut the tension and make the days a little easier.


  1. I love the last thought you posted. Yes, I agree that a smile, a kind word, a simple gesture, etc. can mean the world to someone who is hurting or having a bad day. Have you ever met a complete stranger with a very long face and given them a big smile and seen the change in their demeanor from sad to happy? All of us are special to God... let's make sure that we are all special to each other (and show that person)!!! I always try to find something positive in each day and live each day to the fullest. Thanks for sharing these thoughts with us today. Love & blessings from NC!

  2. great quotes!!!! you are so right, the littlest thing can do so much!! hope you have a great weekend! = )

  3. I LOVE leo buscaglia. I first heard of him in a college class when the teacher had us watch one of his videos. I was so struck by his words and frankly wanted to weep at the gentle purity of his love for others. I was and am kinder because of it.

  4. I love Miss Piggy. And I love your caramel pecan pie!

  5. I am the type of person who wants everything running smoothly here at work but that little voice in my head is telling me its time to put the hammer down on Mr. Unhappy. Just for fun that is. :)


Please comment...it makes me HAPPY!
