Chapter 3, Page 9. Book 09

Everything in the world we want to do or get done, we must do with and through people. Every dollar we will ever earn must come from people. The person we love, and with whom we want to spend the rest of our life, is a human being with whom we must interact. Our children are individuals, each different from any other person who ever lived. And what affects them most is our attitude--the loving kindness they see and feel whenever we are around them. If you'll begin to develop and maintain an attitude that says yes to life and the world, you'll be astonished at the changes you'll see.
Earl Nightingale


A wise woman strengthens her family
But a foolish woman destroys hers by what she does.

Proverbs 14:1


The party is over and being the ‘birthday girl’ is over too for another year. Reality sets back in and it’s Monday and a work day for me.

As I was reading the quote above I thought about just how different each of my children are and yet they all are a part of the same family, each raised in much the same way. Their own personalities emerged even though the backgrounds were the same. We are all unique, but we all do need other people for sure. One thing we all have in common. With out others in our lives we’d not be complete.

Just the fact that I have a car to drive shows my dependence on someone else. I couldn’t make one of those for myself for sure. There are those that say they don’t need others, but I’d like to see anyone make a go of it by themselves.

Today I’m off to that job that I have due to the fact that someone needed a secretary…And I was the one. Actually my job title is office manager, because that is what I do. It couldn’t run very well with out me there so I guess I’ll be off . Have a great day all !


May joy and peace surround you,
Contentment latch your door,
And happiness be with you now,
And bless you evermore

‘On Ya’-ma

My grandson was visiting one day when he asked, "Grandma, do you know how you and God are alike?" I mentally polished my halo while I asked: "No, how are we alike?"
"You're both old," he replied

This is the second blog I visit daily that had contentment on it. I'm definitely needing that.

Have a wonderful day. I totally agree, we really are dependant on others. Even more so, I'm also so very glad were totally dependant on God.
