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

Beauty is an attitude, just as self-hate is an attitude. We need to keep the attitude that we’re beautiful. We owe it to ourselves and to those around us. ~Keep It Simple
Today I am grateful...
  • for another day closer to autumn
  • that Hurricane Dean is not headed for Houston
  • that every day I could keep my mouth shut more than I do and to recognize that I need to shut up
  • for people that call my land line before calling my cell phone
  • that for true balance today we give away what we have been given

Don't worry about what's ahead. Just go as far as you can go - from there you can see farther. ~unknown

Don't work for my happiness--show me yours--show me that it is possible--show me your achievement--and the knowledge will give me courage for mine. ~Ayn Rand

Love the Ayn Rand quote. And I am half tempted to remove my land line I use it so seldom.

Thank you for the reminder to always be grateful! I can't seem to remember gratitude on a daily basis and when I stop at your blog before I start my day, it helps me remember through out the day, depsite anything that may be happening around me.

No one--except for us cool sober folks--EVER quotes Ayn Rand these days.

I am so glad Dean did not get you Houstontonians...
I also LOVE this:"Beauty is an attitude, just as self-hate is an attitude. We need to keep the attitude that we’re beautiful. We owe it to ourselves and to those around us."
