Holly Ridge Happenings

By Shirley Thompson

Happiness
Comes when we stop complaining about the troubles we have and offer thanks for all troubles we don’t have. Go 24 hours with complaining (not even once) then watch how your life starts changing. Spending today complaining about yesterday won’t make tomorrow any better. Instead of complaining because you don’t get what you want be thankful you did not get what you deserve.
