"CHOP YOUR OWN WOOD AND IT WILL WARM YOU TWICE". Henry Ford. I find that sometimes the most logical and the simplest ideas carry the most weight and are most memorable. I've taken so many moments to reflect on my life , my friends, my acquaintances lately. I have been so blessed in all areas.There have been many bumps in the road and I wouldn't change any of them. They have made me strong and resilient. I hope that my experiences have helped someone in some way. I truly believe that God places me where I can do the most good. I might also add that He places me where others can be there for me in my life when I need them. I hope that I never get so oblivious that I don't appreciate or listen to others.I hope that when I am gone, I will leave something good, whether it be memories or something physical. I hope that those who have gone before me realize what an impact they had on me , others, and our society. Everything happens for a reason whether we see that reason at the time. Today I wish you rose colored glasses and a great feeling of accomplishment, big or small.

" If I were two faced , do you think that I'd be wearing this one?" Good quote from Abe Lincoln. I haven't been blogging in a few days , but things have been happening out of control. God is good! We had a car accident yesterday. The blessings are 1. no one was hurt. 2.We all need to know who really is in control.3. If you believe ,even the most unfortunate incidents have a silver lining. I have dealt with many wonderful people in the past few days, making this into a tolerable incident. I had a reunion with old friends yesterday and it was wonderful. Thank you Anne and Helen.Anne was in the first homeroom that I taught after college. It's raining today and I JUST WANT TO GO OUT AND PLAY IN IT. If I did they would send the men in white coats after me. I forget that I am  62. I sure don't feel it. ( I know. I look it . Smarty.) God is good .

This a low brain day. I have to depend on the wise words of a twentieth century sage.
"Don't accept your dog's admiration as conclusive evidence that you are wonderful." Ann Landers.

I along with my brain will return soon. Thank you for your patience.

I hope everyone had a happy and safe fourth of July. I have been doing a lot of thinking in the few days I have taken off writing my blog.I met someone the other day who was asking about my leg. She approached me half expecting that I would be offended ( I think). Her son just had his leg removed and she was curious about many things. I think that she just needed to know that there is a light at the end of the tunnel. I gave her my phone number and told her that I make house calls if she or her son had questions or problems that I might have already experienced. This gave me an idea. I'm not a doctor; just someone who has been through a great deal of things in my life.If anyone reading this has a question that I may be able to answer or just needs to talk to someone, just let me know.I truly believe that we are all put on this earth for a reason and we should all be aware that fact. The more people that we meet, the more diverse our lives can be. Everyone  has value. To quote Dr. Seuss;" A person's a person no matter how small".We can learn from everyone and everything.
