Down Time

I think I need some down time. Too many trips to AAA, smog test places, doctors and I still haven’t gotten to the knitting store.

Howard’s car needs fixing, so he will be without a car next week. We still have one more doctor appointment on Monday, Tuesday is his birthday and Wednesday he has physical therapy. Our days are filled. And we see the kids at least 4 times a week, sometimes more. Howard asked if I was on overload in seeing the kids, and I said I love it.

We still have to renew our licenses and take a driving test. I have been driving for 62 years, never had a ticket or accident, and am still nervous about taking a test. (any test actually)

But my grateful list grows and that is a wonderful thing in this day and age

I read about someone keeping an inspiration journal. and the funny thing is that I started something that I called my Bits & Pieces file. I keep quotes, bits and pieces of dialog I like, people I like, poems, anything that holds my attention and makes me stop and think.

Anne Frank said: “I want to write, but more than that, I want to bring out all kinds of things that lie buried in my heart.”

And Anne Frank was only a child when she wrote that.

Another quote that chills me every time I hear it or think about it, or see it in my Bits & Pieces file is from Golda Meier.

“We can forgive the Arabs for killing our children. We cannot forgive them for forcing us to kill their children. We will only have peace with the Arabs when they love their children more than they hate us.”

Does that not make you think?

Come back tomorrow and I will share more of my Bits & Pieces with you.

Keep love an kisses in your life.
