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

Addiction is answering the spiritual calling inside us by going to the wrong address. ~Chris Ringer

Today I am grateful...
  • that my sister and her family were not afraid to do the right thing in giving Annie her wings. She was their heart dog and as pets do, she showed them how to love more than they thought possible.
  • that this morning Bunny's tummy is feeling better. Last night it was upset and he was embarrassed. Poor little guy.
  • that I finished the problem painting, the one where I couldn't quite get the composition right. It's finished for now, because I am still pondering it. Maybe I will photograph it and let you guys decide.
  • that I still have no desire for "Boomer Ink?" Tattoos for people over age 50? It's a story on the Today Show this morning.

What are you holding on to, telling yourself you can't live without? Is there a person who you fear will go away? Is there a job or a particular level of success you've attached yourself to? Is there a level of finances that you're waiting to have before you let yourself feel complete? Do an inventory of your life. Discern what you've convinced yourself you need to be complete. Now, transfer these people or things to a list in your journal. Make the title of that list "people and things I need to release and detach from my self-esteem." You can still have these people or things in your life, but your goal here is to get clear on your motives for wanting them in your life. ~More Language of Letting Go

This one has me very emotional. The loss of a love, and the need to detach and release. No desire for boomer tats here either.

I was thinking about boomer ink this morning. At church.

I did not know about Annie.
I'll have to go over to the other Sos' blog.
I got a henna tattoo last night at the first saturday art thing.
It is still my only regret...no tattoo.

I will stop by and love the other SO.
Loved the quote.

So sad about Annie. There are heart dogs that are never forgotten. Annie was one of those.
