Quote of the day

 "I may not have control over what happens in my life, but I do have control over my attitude."
                                                                                                                   ~Christine N.


This quote spoke to me today. Some days I want to jump up and down and say No, No, No! I want all of my family and friends to be healthy, happy and have no stress in their lives and I want the same for myself. Well guess what? Sometimes that just doesn't happen. I guess I could blame it on Eve for eating that apple, or I could scream, or kick something, but that never works. So, on those days I remind myself to turn it over to our creator and try to take it one day at a time...and when that doesn't work I take a very deep breath and take it one minute at a time.

Thanks for the reminder. When things are going poorly, I tend to forget to hand over my problems with the faith they will be resolved better than I ever could have managed on my own.

I know that when I have remembered to do that, I have never been let down but for some reason, I tend to forget and whine and complain instead.

So again...thanks :)

The quote is so true.
But its certainly easier to accomplish with the "little" irritations (falling in a puddle, taking a wrong turn). Harder with the big stuff (death and destruction) but still valid and important.
