The Power of “Positude”

The fall colors are rich and vibrant.

Days are warm and nights are cool.

Apple orchards, pumpkin patches, and corn mazes are popular places to visit.

The Farmers’ Market celebrates our local growers.

Covid causes us to be careful with our public meetings and gatherings. Friends and family call with news of cancer, Covid and other problems.

Positude teaches us how to go through the test with success.

Attitude is everything.

I believe better days are coming and they do come.

I expect the best behavior from the people I interact with, and I am seldom disappointed.

Positive words join with positive actions for positive results.

Our society needs an attitude adjustment we need to trade in our Complainttude for a Celebratetude.

Be well my beloved friends.

Always Agape,
