What’s Left?Apr 25th, 2012 | By admin | Category: Opinion
Can you believe that this school year is almost over? This year has gone by so fast - to me. And the weather???? I really thought when we had that unusually warm spell a few weeks ago that it would just go from there to the heat of a normal mid-summer. But, for all our ac bills - I’m glad it has cooled off but I think it has wreaked havoc with all of our allergies. I normally do not have seasonal allergies but I’ve been stopped up and having trouble talking for almost a week now. I know many people are probably enjoying the fact that I cannot talk consistently - but it is inconvenient. When you try to answer the phone you don’t know if your voice is going to work. I can’t take antihistamines so I’m just trying to get well on my own. I know several people in town are going through the same thing. Good luck. I guess we all need to go to our happy place to get well. I flashback to Gulf Shores several times a day. Sometimes I’m at Seachase and sometimes I’m at the house we rented at Ft. Morgan just before Thanksgiving. It’s nice - just listening to the waves coming in (in your head) and remembering the good times. Surely that is a healing exercise….
And because I’m ailing and short on time - here are a few of the quotations I get each morning from Brook Noel’s website:
“Some days there won’t be a song in your heart. Sing anyway.”
“Facts do not cease to exist just because they are ignored.”
“If you had a friend who talked to you like you sometimes talk to yourself, would you continue to hang around with that person?”
~Rob Bremer, Speaker
“Faith dares the soul to go farther than it can see.”
“Happiness will never come to those who fail to appreciate what they already have.”
“The happiness of your life depends on the quality of your thoughts.”
~Marcus A. Antoninus
“I take nothing for granted. I now have only good days, or great days.”
“Do not ask God to guide your footsteps if you are not willing to move your feet.”
Go to your happy place. See you next week.
