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

07 + 02 = 09

In our illness, we were out of control. This was because we wouldn't live from moment to moment. ~Keep It Simple
.
Today I am grateful...
  • that it's my friend Bill's birthday!
  • that I did get some sleep, although it was more elusive last night than it has been in a long time. My mind was quiet, I was comfortable, but Morpheus was busy elsewhere I reckon.
  • that The Fashion Show is finally getting interesting. Issac and Kelly are just so boringly monotone.
  • for the memories of 33 years ago this weekend when I was in NYC with Frances and Curtis to celebrate the Bicentennial. We had such fun.

Avoid the tendency to presuppose that things will turn out for the worse. Thank you for helping me keep an open mind so that I am able to see other solutions to my situations and then give me the determination to make a difference when I can. We take for granted so much of what God has planned for us. May I have sufficient preparation to meet the challenges of today and rejoice in the person that I am. ~Daily Inspiration

Has it been 33 years already? I was in Washington DC...talk about a party! Really like the date today. Hope it's a little cooler there this weekend.

The Daily Inspiration quote is great. I didn't get much sleep either, awake at 4:30. Happy birthday to Bill.

Bill said...

Thanks for the birthday greetings!

I kept waking up last night. I must have been worried about whether you were getting a good night's sleep.

You find the best quotes. Love the Daily Inspiration. 33 years ago I was a motorcycle run cooking for 425 people. It was a fun time. And even now, I remember most of what happened that weekednd.

Speaking of keeping an open mind, I have just come from reading the post of one of my blog followers and she was talking about a cure for arthritis...soaking raisins in gin! She said the gin smelled good so she took 2 tablespoons of it and sipped it one night. (Aren't "earth people" strange? Can you imagine leaving it at that!)

I am thinking I was in Chicago or Wisconson then. Wait a minute, wasn't that in 1977?

Thirty Three years ago. Wow.
