If you walk in the footprints of others, you won't make any of your own.


What you put your attention on grows.


Appreciation is like looking through a wide-angle lens that lets you see the entire forest, not just the one tree limb you walked up on. - Doc Childre


Taking responsibility for where you are gives you the power to be exactly where you want to be.


Just because someone desires you doesn't mean that they value you.


Some people are so poor, all they have is money. - Patrick Meagher




Someone else is praying for the things you take for granted.


I've seen better days, but I've also seen worse.  I don't have everything that I want, but I do have all I need.  I woke up with some aches and pains, but I woke up.  My life may not be perfect...but I am blessed.


Life can be unfair sometimes but that is no reason to give up on it.


Just because some people are fueled by drama doesn't mean you have to attend the performance. - Cheryl Richardson




Once you replace negative thoughts with positive ones, you'll start having positive results. - Willie Nelson

  2. I wasn't too sure if that was Eva or Zsa Zsa Gabor. (It's Ava.) I was surprised that Zsa Zsa is still alive! She is 98. She been married 9 times!

    I hope you are having a good day in your HS body.

  6. Hello Linda! Well, these pictures are so cute, with interesting words! For me, the best one is: "Someone else is praying for the things you take for granted."

  15. I can relate to "some people are praying for the things you take for granted!" On another note, I read your very long post! I have some of those same issues. I hate it that you were put in a "special" class early on...sure pins a label on you! I too, am very sensitive. I cry easily and always have. As I got older, it got worse. I cannot deal with stress or criticism without crying. This made it impossible for me to work and so I too early retirement. I get anxious in crowded, noisy places, even our Red Hat dinners! Most people don't understand, but that is just the way God made me. He also made me to be very caring (sometimes too much and carrying the burdens of the world). I want to help and save everyone, volunteer for everything, donate money, what have you! Well, I don't have the money, and have learned to say "no." Still, when someone is hurting, I hurt for them. I cry for movies and books. I thought I was alone. I don't have the sensitivity to light, but can somewhat relate to the other stuff. I don't know how I handle casinos...perhaps because I can leave when I want or go to the restroom.

    1. I thought I was alone too, boopnut, until I read Linda's post. I am very sensitive too, and I cry so easily - It makes me crazy! btw, I can handle casinos too ~ they're not judgmental or critical ~ they just take your money. LOL!

  18. Good morning, dear Linda!

    I thoroughly enjoyed both pieces of relaxing piano music that you presented today, one played over a scene of serenity in the countryside, the other accompanying the spectacular motion of waves. Green Acres is one of the few comedy TV series that I didn't regularly watch in my youth. Lead actor Eddie Albert had a long life and died at age 99 while his lovely costar, Eva Gabor, died much younger and ten years earlier at age 76. Her sister Zsa Zsa is still alive at age 98. My favorite Eva Gabor quote is as follows: "Love is a game that two can play and both win." I would like to add that it is especially true of the highest form of love, unconditional love.

    Happy Wednesday, dear friend Linda!
