take 2




todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

for people with integrity

for the concept of keeping my mouth shut more often than it used to be, although I still have a lot of work to do on this

that I've got it so good all the time and can remember that fact most of the time

that I find most commitments pretty damn easy to keep

that we get another opportunity to close on the house today; a paperwork technicality derailed the closing yesterday

DESIRE/MOTIVATION

"We are told that talent creates its own opportunities. But it sometimes seems that intense desire creates not only its own opportunities, but its own talents."
-- Eric Hoffer

"A man must be obedient to the promptings of his innermost heart."
-- Robertson Davies

"The starting point of all achievement is desire. Keep this constantly in mind. Weak desire brings weak results, just as a small amount of fire makes a small amount of heat."
-- Napoleon Hill

"The significance of a man is not in what he attains, but rather what he longs to attain."
-- Khalil Gibran

I'm going to work on the "mouth shut" thing today....we'll see how that goes. I hope today really is the BIG day for you. What a journey.

I hope you get to close on your house today. This has been a long journey.

I thought Journey was a rock band. Hmmmm. Maybe I should just keep my mouth shut.

where is the house located?

Technicalities can be a serenity buster if we let them. I hope that yesterday's close to closing is completed today.

As the toilet paper said to the toothbrush "It's all in the paperwork." Good Luck for today.

I agree with Syd, what a bummer. Hopefully you will be able to close today. Remember, this too shall pass.

I am proud of you for keeping your mouth shut... I know I am working on the same thing... letting my "rights" get in the way
I hope too your house closes
