Now you see it ...

rust. under the black vinyl top.

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that I learned another good lesson yesterday. I had to humble myself and become honest. During a meeting in which the topic was honesty, I realized I was being less than honest in the description of the car I'm selling on eBay. It has a rust issue but I had purposely neglected to mention that. Obviously, the rust may well affect the value of the car as I try to sell it.
I admitted that I would want this information if I were buying the car and would feel cheated if the seller did not mention it. So, I had to come clean and when I got home, I amended the vehicle description, both in words and pictures.

that sometimes it's really tough to practice these principles in all my affairs, but it's worth it because I keep a clean mind

that I'm able to help others, even when I don't feel like it

The only difference between stumbling blocks and steppingstones is the way in which we use them.

I'm glad for you Dave. It tells me a lot about your recovery. Treat others as we would like to be treated is a good maxim.

Am I the only one who can't see the rust?

Carol - the rust is underneath the black vinyl roof. See the lumps?
