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


"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.

Mary Christine said...

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?

Syd said...

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.

Trailboss said...

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
