Beginning today, treat everyone you meet as if they were going to be dead by midnight. Extend to them all the care, kindness and understanding you can muster, and do with no thought of any reward. Your life will never be the same again.

How about this - not beginning today, but just for THE DAY, do this. Think we can? I don't know with some people it would be so easy - with others . . . I guess these are the ones we're supposed to try harder with! lol
How would it change our lives? Chatty thinkin' today as we go this morning to my GS purple belt testing! He has red, red senior, brown, brown senior - then black belt - sometime next summer!
Happy Birthday Jessica Simpson from Wikipedia -
Jessica Ann Simpson (born July 10, 1980) is an American singer, actress, and television personality who rose to fame in 1999. She has achieved seven Billboard Top 40 hits, and has three gold and two multi-platinum RIAA-certified albums. Simpson starred with her then-husband Nick Lachey in the MTV reality show Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica. She ventured into the country music market in 2008 and released Do You Know.
Simpson was born in Abilene, Texas, the daughter of Tina and Joe Truett Simpson, who was a minister and psychologist. As a child, she began singing at her local Baptist church. At age twelve, Simpson unsuccessfully auditioned for The Mickey Mouse Club.
While attending J.J. Pearce High School, she signed to Proclaim Records, a minor Gospel music record label. She recorded an album, self-titled, "Jessica", but Proclaim went bankrupt and the album was never officially released except for a small pressing funded by her grandmother. This small funding however gained her minor attention and she gave concerts with other acts such as Kirk Franklin, God's Property, and CeCe Winans.
Simpson left high school at age sixteen (she later earned her GED), and after Columbia Records executive Tommy Mottola heard "Jessica", she was signed to the label.
At least she kept on trying and didn't give up!
