National Compliment Day

Journalist Rocky the Squirrel –

Keeping his hands on the nuts of the world.

 

Here for another important message for the day. Today, January 24th, is commemorated as National Compliment Day every year. It is a very special day and celebrated in most parts of the world apart from the USA. This day represents a positive theme – a positive tone in a positive atmosphere – everywhere you are whether it be at home, the grocery market, work or that place the humans feel to punish themselves by what they call “working out”.

Compliments – compliments – compliments – that is what we most do today. Have you ever noticed how someone just brightens up at a compliment, even a complete stranger? Do you notice how much harder you work when you get a compliment? So today, we shall compliment our little hearts out.

So here are some suggestions that can help you today on your National Compliment Day.

  • Give your co-worker an honest to goodness compliment on something at work. It doesn’t matter how small or big, express your thoughts in a generous compliment. Hey go for the gold here and even try to compliment that boss. Let them wonder what you’re up to..ha!
  • Compliment that person who is losing weight.
  • Compliment that human that is consistently working out in their hamster ball.
  • Compliment that human that really has touched you in some point of your life in a good way.
  • Compliment your spouse. Sometimes you humans don’t express your feelings enough to each other. Maybe if you compliment them, they’ll give you more nuts for the winter.
  • By all means, compliment your pets. They’re always there for you no matter what, even when you come home upset. They just want to love on you.
  • Compliment the guy that cuts you off in traffic this morning. Maybe he won’t hear you but you can smile and wave. Maybe instead of uttering fowl language under your breath, think to yourself, “Isn’t he a nice guy for getting in front of me blocking me from any danger.”
  • Compliment your mother and father – if it wasn’t for them, you wouldn’t be here. Heck, have your spouse compliment them too. If it wasn’t for them, your spouse wouldn’t have you.
  • Compliment your pups… I mean children. I’m sure they do something else besides being destructive.
  • Compliment your teacher. Compliment your bus driver or your chauffer.
  • While you’re at it – compliment nature and all of its little creatures, like me ūüôā Hey, you can even throw us some extra feed outside, we won’t say no.

You get the drift. You give out compliments and you give a positive sense of well being. You make someone feel great with just a few words. We all know that words can be so destructive. Let’s turn it around today.

I, Journalist Rocky the Squirrel, challenge you. I challenge you to give out a minimum of FIVE compliments today. I bet you can do more but FIVE is a good start. Are you going to take the challenge?

This is Journalist Rocky the Squirrel signing off. Have a fantastic day you beautiful humans!

Barks!  Now that I have your attention my friends, I must share something fabulous with you.  Something that is so exciting Рsomething that I have been keeping a secret for two entire weeks.  And you know for a terrier to keep something a secret Рthat just blows your little doggy mind!  Okay РOkay Рlet me *try* to calm down for a minute and give you some back up information.  Some of you may remember reading about DOGtv on my weekly Paw Time with Houdini series.  If you missed it, you can check out my postings here and here.

I absolutely ‚̧ DOGtv. ¬†I wrote them an email straight from my puppy heart. ¬†And they extended all of my friends here two months of on-line subscription free when they sign up for one month at DOGtv¬†using the code PIGLOVE at checkout. ¬†It’s really a cool channel just made for us pooches. ¬†I watch it every night before I go to bed. ¬†It’s kind of like my nightly routine here at the Hotel Thompson.

Well friends, I want you to check out something that came out today on-line with the newspaper USA Today. ¬†You will absolutely¬†not believe who made it in the paper – coughs, barks, grunts and then smiles with happiness. ¬†I’ve even copied the article below for your convenience. ¬†Guess who is doing the happy dance at the Hotel Thompson?

I want to take this point to give a shout out to USA Today and Jueun Choi – barks you’re the best!

Journey with Friends

Welcome my friends to our weekly issue of Journey with Friends. This is a time that we come together for support, for encouragement, for fellowship ‚Äď all with one single goal in mind ‚Äď to live better. Welcome to our journey to share our goals and our accomplishments and our disappointments and frustrations.

Together we can do this!


Hello sweet friends. How did you do last week? ¬†Ups or downs? ¬†Remember life is a process. Things don’t happen overnight and changes take time.

I have great news to share. Six months ago, I had bloodwork done where my A1C came back at the time as 8.3 – not extremely high but too high in my world. Well that is where Journey with Friends started. Little changes at first – cutting back on food, making better choices, walking more. Nothing happened overnight and there were stumbling blocks, ups and downs but still I continued. Well last week I went for my six month check up and had bloodwork done again. Are you ready for this? ¬†My A1C came back 5.9! ¬†Yay me!! ¬†This makes it all worth it in the long run. I’m so thankful for this change.

So I leave you this week my friends with a question. ¬†What are you thankful for this week? ¬†‚̧ԳŹ

Texts from Bacon

Yep, me and mom have been at it again.  I thought I was dying.  Really I did.  I heard about this mysterious disease on the television on the afternoon news.  I can’t get sick.  Who would take care of mommy then?  So, I did what I do best.  I sent her a text.  My texts are in grey and mom’s are in blue.  You’ll see.  I thought this was the end.
