True friendship comes when silence between two people is comfortable. ~Dave Tyson Gentry

Today I am grateful…

  • for the dawning of a new day and the discomforts of yesterday are lessened
  • that the world is full of inspiration, al kinds, when I am willing to see it
  • that it almost feels like winter outside this morning
  • for spiritual maintenance, both comfortable and uncomfortable
  • that I have today what I never thought would be available to me, a drunk

Koi pond taken with my iPhone.

If you were walking back from a well, carrying a bucket of water & someone jostled you, there could be spilled from the bucket only that which it contained. As you walk along the way of life, people are constantly bumping into you. If your heart is full of ill nature, bad temper, and ugly disposition, only those things will be spilled from it. On the other hand, if it is full of love, you will spill a smile or pleasant remark. You can spill from your bucket only that which it contains. ~Author Unknown

Today I like last lines.

The last line of your list. (although I don't understand it)

And the last line of the author unknown.

...and if your bucket starts getting empty, it's time to hoof it to a meeting.
