Poem of the Day ~ If You Knew

If You Knew

Ruth Muskrat Bronson

If you could know the empty ache of loneliness,
          Masked well behind the calm indifferent face
Of us who pass you by in studied hurriedness,
          Intent upon our way, lest in the little space
Of one forgetful moment hungry eyes implore
          You to be kind, to open up your heart a little more,
I’m sure you’d smile a little kindlier, sometimes,
          To those of us you’ve never seen before.

If you could know the eagerness we’d grasp
          The hand you’d give to us in friendliness;
What vast, potential friendship in that clasp
          We’d press, and love you for your gentleness;
If you could know the wide, wide reach
          Of love that simple friendliness could teach,
I’m sure you’d say “Hello, my friend,” sometimes, 
          And now and then extend a hand in friendliness to each.



Health Tip of the Day ~ What are Nutritional Differences Between Red Cabbage & Green Cabbage

Both red cabbage and green cabbage are nutritious and healthy options.

They are low in calories and high in fiber, vitamins, and minerals. However, there are some differences between the two that may make one a better choice than the other for certain individuals or situations.

Red cabbage is an excellent source of vitamin C, vitamin K, and anthocyanins, which are potent antioxidants that may help protect against cancer and heart disease. It also contains more iron than green cabbage. On the other hand, green cabbage is a good source of vitamin K, vitamin C, and folate.

If you’re looking to boost your immune system and protect against chronic diseases, red cabbage may be the better choice due to its higher antioxidant content. If you’re looking to support bone health, green cabbage may be the better choice due to its higher vitamin K content.

Ultimately, both red and green cabbage are healthy options and can be enjoyed in a variety of ways, such as in salads, stir-fries, or soups. It’s always a good idea to include a variety of colorful fruits and vegetables in your diet to ensure you’re getting a wide range of nutrients.

Positive Thought of the Day ~ It’s Going to Be a Great Day

It’s a going to be a great day. I know it. Why not? Why not you? Do you believe you deserve a great day? I do. It doesn’t happen by standing still and waiting for it to knock on the door or text. We have to go after it. The mystery of having a great day is that the more we help others have a great day somehow it bounces back to us. Get out there and connect to others.  Bring everyone you meet a smile, a word of encouragement, or a helping hand. You’ll have a great day. 

Feeling Good Tip of the Day ~ It’s All Going to Work Out

Never cut a tree down in the wintertime. Never make a negative decision in the low time. Never make your most important decisions when you are in your worst moods. Wait. Be patient. The storm will pass. The spring will come.” ~ Robert H. Schuller


NOTE: Nighttime isn’t permanent. Storms run out of wind and rain. It’s tough when you’re in the middle of the storm. It may seem as if it will never end. It will. Dawn will break and the storms will drift over the horizon leaving behind sunshine and blue sky. Don’t think of quitting. Don’t consider giving up. You’re strong. You’re stronger than you can imagine. It’s all going to work out.
