Don’t you wish life came with an instruction book?
There is a book entitled The Complete Life’s Little Instruction Book by H. Jackson Brown, Jr. (Thomas Nelson, 2009). It contains 1560 pithy sayings, from “#1 Compliment three people every day” to “#1560 Include your parents in your prayers.” Its actually a compliation of three previous volumes, hence the word Complete. I always take it along when I substitute teach for younger kids.
Some examples —
#353 Go through all your old photographs. Select ten and tape them to you kitchen cabinets. Change them every thirty days.
#692 Pay for a poor child to go to summer camp.
#802 Never sell your teddy bear, letter sweater, or high school yearbooks at a garage sale. You’ll regret it later.
#1068 Never give an anniversary gift that has to be plugged in.
#1258 Mail in your Publishers Clearing House sweepstakes notice. Who knows?
Sometimes it’s the little things that make life worthwhile.
