Attitude...

A friend sent this today. Maybe she sensed I had a problem or two LOL! I would think it was just co-incidental. But it should be a reminder to me to be kind - all the time. Still, I don't think I can some moments. Intense emotions just pour out occasionally. Maybe it's better if no one listens to those outbursts. Like a kettle boiling. Let it turn itself off and calm down. we had a death in the parish of a really good man, and we had a liturgy meeting that should send the priest to burn in hell. But oops that's not kind either!

Still, these are nice words, and worth pondering on.

There once was a woman who woke up one morning,
looked in the mirror,
and noticed she had only three hairs on her head.
'Well,' she said, 'I think I'll braid my hair today.'

So she did and she had a wonderful day.

The next day she woke up,
looked in the mirror
and saw that she had only two hairs on her head.

'H-M-M,' she said,

'I think I'll part my hair down the middle today.'

So she did and she had a grand day.

The next day she woke up,
looked in the mirror and noticed
that she had only one hair on her head.
'Well,' she said, 'today I'm going
to wear my hair in a pony tail.'
So she did, and she had a fun, fun day.


The next day she woke up,
looked in the mirror and noticed
that there wasn't a single hair on her head.
'YAY!' she exclaimed.
'I don't have to fix my hair today!'

Attitude is everything.

Be kinder than necessary,
for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.
Live simply,
Love generously,
Care deeply,
Speak kindly.......

Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass...

It's about learning to dance in the rain.

I guess I forget that people need sympathy, not anger. Love. Care. Kindness. I shall have to dig deep.

Oh dear, it is rather upsetting to read your post about virtual vomitting....perhaps if you know what happens in the lives of the so called "lurkers" you would feel they are justified in not writing every day.....

I do not post about my year because it has been depressing so far,I am really unwell and will be going into hospital on Monday next for further tests.

I don't think she meant lurkers in general - some particular lurkers have, as I understand it, posted something upsetting - and you should keep us informed so that we can send virtual hugs and virtual flowers!!!

I knew you'd come in with that. I just knew it. Lurkers are not friends. Lurkers are people who read but don't actually belong or participate. Not friends. Please stop taking offence when I blow off steam once a freaking year, I never aim it at you.

And I said nothing about people not posting. And I am really sad that you are unwell and didn't share that. And I hope you could find some time to do that because we care. And I always care about my friends. I really want to know how you are.
