Life’s lessons…more


Frame every so-called disaster with these words, 'In five years, will this matter?'

Forgive everyone everything.

What other people think of you is none of your business.

Time heals almost everything.  Give time, time. 

These are some interesting thoughts to ponder, especially at this particular time for our family, and for the family of a BSP sister whose hubby is rapidly losing his battle with cancer.

On a happier note, Miss Ansley enjoyed all your birthday wishes.  Haley had four extra gals over last night for a cook out and spend-the-night party.  Grumps and I went over for the cook out part.  There is nothing like the energy of six giggly gals!  And nothing like being able to leave them behind when our tummies were full!  Whew…I’m sure we will get more sleep than anyone at their house will!

So today we are loading up the moho…and checking our to-do list…and making sure our house sitter will be happy.

We are going on a little trip.  Want to come along?

Forgive everyone everything... that is a tough one for most people. What most people miss is that the forgiveness you give is for your own benefit, not theirs. I believe that if they realized they were hurting themselves holding on to those un-forgiven things and bad feelings, they might be MORE than willing to let them go. Getting them to realize that... now there's the rub.

Check off that check list! Roll-em, roll-em, roll-em!

Big hugs xoxo

That first one sure is great food for thought. Take time to smell the roses might need to be on a future list. Life is short and oh-so-precious as we are seeing too clearly right now.
