April 27th

“Great opportunities to help others seldom come, but small ones surround us daily. ”
Sally Koch - author
What small opportunity did you grab by the horns today?
********
Today I took the opportunity to sit down and relax with a DVD
that my daughter gave me for Mother's day.
It brought back memories of when we went to New York together.
Whilst we were there we came out of our hotel on a Sunday morning
with plans to walk around Central Park together.
Those plans rapidly changed when we realized that
Richard Gere was just outside the hotel filming ‘The Hoax’.
2 hours later we continued our journey to Central Park,
both star stuck and in love with Richard Gere.
Unfortunately all the shots I had with Richard Gere in had camera shake lol!
That was an opportunity that came our way that we will never forget.

Grasp your opportunities, no matter how poor your health;
nothing is worse for your health than boredom.

Wow. Lucky you. My hubby and I once went to Hollywood. We were on our way to the Chinese Theatre but noticed a film crew outside The Roosevelt Hotel. It was only Britney Spears (during her good times!) filming. We stood and watched for ages!
