Morning Cereal

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

for a good visit with my Mom ...
and that I kept my cool when I found out the hospital didn't inform me of a major event from 2 days ago

for a guest speaker at Lambda whose story I really identified with

that we slept in late (real late) yesterday morning -- something I NEVER do and what a treat it was!

that H's best friend is visiting

"Things don't go wrong and break your heart so you can become bitter and give up. They happen to break you down and build you up so you can be all that you were intended to be."

It was so hot in that room yesterday I could not stay awake. But I had heard his story before.

love that quote, it couldn't be truer!!!

PJ said...

Wow! That quote is powerful. Thanks for sharing it, dAAve.

Bill said...

The quotation from Mr. Jones will be sent to a friend who was thinking of suicide this past weekend. Thanks.

Is the room really that hot at Lambda or is Scott having hot flashes? I need to know how to dress in case I'm ever in Houston for a meeting.

hmmmm I looked all over the box and I did not see your face by the flakes or the nuts.

dAAve said...

Oh Pam! You're so funny!!

(I air-brushed it out)

Mary Christine said...

Did you end that sentence with with just for me? cuz you know that's really where it's at.

Bunch of comedians today. Thanks for the quote. It really hit home. I should have seen it years ago.

Dear dAAve,

Well, I bet the hospital people will not make that choice again-you should have gotten all over them! Good for you.

God Bless your Mother, I hope she is resting well and as happy as possible.

I love you Dave. Also, I'm glad you slept in for once AND enjoyed it ! Awesome.
