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

Humility leads to strength and not to weakness. It is the highest form of self-respect to admit mistakes and to make amends for them. ~John (Jay) McCloy
Today I am grateful...
  • that yesterday morning I was feeling not so well, but after hearing an other's story told with the humor of a stand-up comic and over and over striking such a deep chord in me I was lifted out of that 'not well' feeling
  • that the speaker reminded me to find the joy and follow it
  • that I was able to wake from the nightmares I had last night. If I told you what they were you would laugh, because it was absurd. But being in it, and waking during it then returning to it was really frightening. Then this morning there is still the residual but it will go away.
  • that I have to scoot and get ready to meet clients
  • that Mary sent me these great quotes

Humility is the only true wisdom by which we prepare our minds for all the possible changes of life. ~George Arliss
If you are right, take the humble side -- you will help the other fellow. If you are wrong, take the humble side -- and you will help yourself. ~unknown

Good stuff today So. I too have the weird dreams but thankfully none for the past 2 nights. That is a miracle in itself.

Love you

I'm glad that you feel better. And I'm glad that you are on this earth. For some reason, I am just glad today for a lot.

Gosh, I didn't know I was in your dream last night. I know how frightening that can be.

But you were still able to make it to my 6:45 meeting this morning, so thanks for being there. It was my day to chair, and I used your remark about looking at the past, but not staring at it, as an opener to talk about eliminating resentments.
