Oh me or oh my grandma is a crazy lady. I'm doing fine at school - she's the one who is a little worried.
See my finger - two stitches!! My first.
Now I have lots and lots of homework - I'm doing well - even though it takes about 4 hours - 2 of homework and two eating!
We had lightening strike our Comcast Cable line about three weeks ago. It blew two televisions, two vcr's, our dehumidifier in the basement, and a couple things I can't remember now. It will cost about $1K to replace it all and we have a $1K deductible on our house insurance. Comcast came out yesterday for the 3rd time - so we do have the tv signal back - but we have to buy tv's! That's not the part that frustrates me. The part that frustrates me is the internet. We have an internet now with a mind of it's own!!! If it wants to work - it works. If it wants to stop in the MIDDLE of something - it stops and I lose the whole thing!!! If I'm reading a blog and I go to comment it'll drop it and I lose the entire post!!!
My husband and I see things though different colored lenses. (Usually.) Mine are pink and his is blue. It's been that way since we were first married. Now I'm mellow more a hippie - I like to look at the good in life and he thinks I'm naive. He likes to run things in a much more rigid style then I like. There's one way he wants us to do things - his way! He has a rule for everything. He thinks he is more realistic!
On the other hand - he has spent two nights doing homework with the grandson - did I mention all the homework the grandson had? So as with all things in life - you have to look at both sides of the coin. I think that was a wonderful thing for him to do!
Men are from Mars and Women are from Venus!
Today as I was reading blogs and answering the ones I didn't lose - I read one on patience and a dear friend emailed me about patience. Patience has to be the message for me - when I don't have my patience - then I don't see things out of my rose colored glasses as well!!
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:And then this was sent to me:
“People are often unreasonable, irrational, and self-centered. Forgive them anyway. If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives. Be kind anyway. If you are successful, you will win some unfaithful friends and some genuine enemies. Succeed anyway. If you are honest and sincere people may deceive you. Be honest and sincere anyway. What you spend years creating, others could destroy overnight. Create anyway. If you find serenity and happiness, some may be jealous. Be happy anyway. The good you do today, will often be forgotten. Do good anyway. Give the best you have, and it will never be enough. Give your best anyway.” Mother Teresa
I think God was trying to tell me something don't you??????????
Well I love Mother Teresa - always have - she died the same year my brother did and Princess Diana - 1997. She is one of my role models. So tonight I'm going to say my prayers (a lot of ones for you all) - and then I'm going to give it ALL to the LORD! If HE can't fix things no one can!
So that's why I pray anyway!
