Cool.
There is NOTHING 'accidental' about 'fit spiritual condition'. Ever.
Well thats what I find anyway.

(The 'not losing the temper' part impressed ME the most)

A great gratitude list. Not losing temper with a sibling can be a miracle. And you are so right, IT WORKS IF YOU WORK IT,
and add SO WORK IT CAUSE YOU"RE WORTH IT.
