IF THE ONLY PRAYER YOU SAID IN YOUR LIFE WAS "THANK YOU", THAT WOULD SUFFICE. ~Meister Eckhart

Would you like to make yourself into a victim, or would you prefer to be firmly in control of your life? Peaceful patience, tolerance and acceptance will keep you in control. If there is a situation that needs to be changed, take action to make that change happen. Don't waste your time with being annoyed. The next time you encounter a situation that would normally annoy you, stop and remember that you have another choice. Instead of letting outside events control your attitude, choose to control it yourself. Being annoyed is a waste of your life. Be peaceful, calm and powerful instead. ~Ralph Marston
Today I am grateful...
  • to stand with loved ones. I share this journey with some incredible soul traveling companions.
  • to be a responsible pet owner
  • for spiritually fit athiests
  • that today I have everything I need, other than sleep

Hey there is so much to more just being a "pet owner." Lots of love, respect and responsibility comes from this. It alone says so much about your colorful soul today.

I bet Bunny is pretty glad that you're a responsible pet owner as well!
