Thanks, Grace. I haven't been online in a while. Family issues. I'll try to post more.
Hugs.

Here is a Christmas quote from Maya Angelou - "You can tell a lot about a person by the way they handle three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights."

How about "Some days you are the dog, and some days you are the tree" LOL

Tangled lights really are a temperament challenge
And I agree about the seeds but somehow in my garden, the weeds always win. I've come to accept them as part of God's creation. HA

Here's a few one liners I thought you might like:-

"If at first you don't succeed... Don't try skydiving!"
"Change is inevitable, except from a vending machine."
"The severity of the itch is inversely proportional to the ability to reach it."
"The early bird gets the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese."
"Vacation begins when Dad says, "I know a short cut."

Have a great day!

My dear farmgirl friend, April, recently shared this verse with me from the great Maria Sabina - Mexican healer and poet. I like what she has to say and I thought you might enjoy it too:-

"Cure yourself with the light of the sun and the rays of the moon.
With the sound of the river and the waterfall.
With the swaying of the sea and the fluttering of birds.

Heal yourself with mint, with neem and eucalyptus.
Sweeten yourself with lavender, rosemary, and chamomile.
Hug yourself with the cocoa bean and a touch of cinnamon.

Put love in tea instead of sugar, and take it looking at the stars.
Heal yourself with the kisses that the wind gives you and the hugs of the rain.
Get strong with bare feet on the ground and with everything that is born from it.

Get smarter every day by listening to your intuition, looking at the world with the eye of your forehead.
Jump, dance, sing, so that you live happier.
Heal yourself, with beautiful love, and always remember: you are the medicine".

So sad that Queen Elizabeth II passed away overnight. I thought it fitting to share a quote from Her Majesty:-

"When I was 21, I pledged my life to the service of our people and I asked for God's help to make good that vow. Although that vow was made in my salad days, when I was green in judgement, I do not regret nor retract one word of it." - Reaffirming her lifetime commitment to the job in a speech to mark her 25 years on the throne, in 1977.

Cindy, I have always loved that quote and do try to practice it daily. It's not the situation, but your reaction to the situation. Stress is always when we want something to be different than it is. I'm learning... but letting go can be difficult. I'm a work in progress. Thank you for sharing such a lovely reminder.

It was so wonderful that the Queen was able to make such a vow in her youth and never turn from it, with the help of the Almighty. A wonderful example of what it means to be committed.
