Ponder this for a moment...

Complaining is the refuge of the powerless.



I don't know who said it, but I wrote it down in a note book and tucked it away.
I found it the other day and it speaks as loudly to me now as it did then.

Do SOMETHING friends. Mend a wound, fix a flat, be grateful for the people who love you, and for people who used to love you. Hug your kid, call your mom, give a compliment...

Have a good weekend!!!

Here's a pitiful little internet hug
:HUG)
skip all that money you spend on coffee and go to the AutoCar wash,
And I don't do massages, well, not on strangers anyway! :)
Maybe I will do something for you...write a little poem perhaps?

I had a "net" friend named Tim,
Whose blog I read again and again.
Sometimes I laugh, sometimes I cry,
Sometimes he's crazy, sometimes he's wise.

He's the youngest of a bunch of kids,
And he's bound to be smart as a whip.
Can play the guitar quite well,
And has worked hard as... heck.

One day his ship will come in,
And some will say...did you ever meet Tim?
And I will sat YES,
He was never a pest,
And he was mighty darn good with a pen! (or a computer!)

Jeesh... that was the best I could do on a moments notice, without having to re-read your blog! :)
Hope you have a lovely week!
-Cora :)

I'm pretty sure it was Alice Cooper who said that...

Wait! Maybe not

Alice Cooper???
Wait, let me get my old encyclopedia out and see if I can find out who that guy was...
:)
Tim, glad to "see" you smile!

Thanks for visiting my site... Come again :)

Mayden' s Voyage said...

Thank you Malinda! I send one back to you! :HUG)
I hope you get to read "Dad's back from Iraq"
I thought of you this morning, and I know you would have done exactly the same thing as me...
We are so blessed!
Have a wonderful day!
-Cora :)
