One of the things I really want to do in my lifetime is to travel :]. Travel anywhere and EVERYWHERE! One of the tops places on my list that I want to travel to is Greece .
Aw, Beautiful Greece. Just simply looking at this photo is peaceful. I can't wait until I'm actually there and can really take in it's tremendous beauty. :] Yep, it's officially added to my bucket list ;]

Love this!!!!

Story from MMT
Today, when I told him I was upset about my weight, he said, “Why? It's nothing but a number that matters entirely too much to too many. A number that doesn't tell the world how many lives you've touched. A number that doesn't tell the world what your passions are. A number that doesn't tell the world how your eyes sparkle when you smile. A number that doesn't define you in any way whatsoever.” MMT

Love is Blind...

Story from MMT
Today, my 75-year-old grandpa who has been blind from cataracts for almost 15 years said to me, “Your grandma is just the most beautiful thing, isn’t she?” I paused for a second and said, “Yes she is. I bet you miss seeing that beauty on a daily basis.” “Sweety,” my grandpa said, “I still see her beauty every day. In fact, I see it more now than I used to when we were young.” MMT

Sweet melodies...

Story from MMT
Today was the 10 year anniversary of my dad’s passing. When I was a kid he used to hum a short melody to me as I was going to sleep. When I was 18, as he rested in his hospital bed fighting cancer, the roles were reversed and I hummed the melody to him. I haven’t heard that melody since and almost completely forgot about it until last night. My fiancĂ© and I were lying in bed. We were turned on our sides looking at each other when he started humming the melody to me. He said his mom used to hum it to him when he was a kid. MMT

A will of good fortune..

Story from MMT
Today, the happy-go-lucky street performer/bum who has spent the last several years hanging outside our condo complex making residents smile by strumming funny, positive songs on his guitar and encouraging everyone who walks by to “smile and make today memorable,” is now an official resident of the complex. An elderly woman on the first floor deeded her mortgage-free unit to him in her will before she passed away last week. I remember her telling me once that this street performer had a way of “making her smile when no one else could.” MMT

Cab ride takes an unexpected right turn ..

Story From MMT

Today, I took a cab ride 16 blocks in Manhattan and when I got to my destination I realized I forgot my wallet at home. As I fumbled through my purse, trying to explain things to the cab driver and scrounge up enough cash, a man walked up behind me and handed me a $50 bill. “Thank you!” I said. “Let me have your address. I will pay you back.” He reached into his pocket, pulled out an old receipt and wrote down an address. “You can drop off my money here,” he said. This afternoon I went to the address he gave me and found myself standing in front of a soup kitchen that had a sign out front that said, “Accepting cash donations to feed the hungry.” I walked in and donated the $50.
