Johnson: A positive attitude can mean a lot

I hear people complaining because their hair is turning gray. They should be thankful it has not fallen out!

We all know the old saying, “Be careful what you wish for, you just might get it.”

Your words have so much power. In everything you say you have the power to make your life  so much better.

Do you ever tell your pastor he gave a good message? Try it, he will get better and your words may help him get lots better than he would have.

Try finding a kind word for the young lady waiting your table. If you do, she may remember you like your coffee black next time.

My grandson won the free throw competition in basketball camp last week at LaGrange College. Yes, he was the smallest kid out there, but I made him feel like the biggest kid there.

When you see your children or grandkids try to find something special they did, even if it’s being well-behaved for 5 minutes.

Everyone knows it is Tracy, our office manager, that makes me look smart, but I let her know every week she is the brains around here and why she goes home one hour early on Friday for being so special.

While I am asking you to give a pat on the back, what have you done for your mate this week? Does she have pretty flowers or a box of candy? Why not? You should make it a point to tell her you love her before someone else does! That does happen you know.

They say it takes a special leader to see the good things in people before it happens. I am sharing with you to look for the good in everything every week and share with those people that they are a blessing in your life. I know if you will, they will be a bigger blessing in the future.

May God Bless and he will!
