Consider the lilies

Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof. Back in Sunday School, I had to learn to speak in King James. Loosely translated, that means, enjoy yourself today, because tomorrow I shall smite thee. Oh boy!

Tomorrow, I have to deal with a major family problem, so today I’m going to:

Have jalapeños on my hamburger, followed by a roll of Tums and a night of dreams about sock puppets.

Pick a wedge in the pharmacy line at Wal-Mart.

Make a crank call to my ex.

Write totally unrelated comments on my friends’ blogs.

Touch as many oranges on the display as I want to before choosing the ones I want.

Wear a tank top without shaving my armpits.

A wise man once told me, “When life is peeing on your Cheerios, it’s time to take your Cheerios out of the urinal.” I truly have no idea what that means. I would guess that your outlook affects your problems as much as your problems affect your outlook.

I stepped out on the back porch at 6:30 this morning, and there was a deer standing on the nature trail right behind my house. She looked at me for a moment, and then calmly walked away. It’s going to be a good day.

  1. What a great post! Love the “cheerios” thing….I’d never heard it before either! LOL

  2. Hope everything works out well for you and your family And the deer and the Cheerios.

    • Thanks, Joan. Just trying to keep the knots out of my stomach. I need to make room for those jalapenos.

  3. You can’t have your cake and eat it too, but you can have as much pie as you want!

  4. We are your “other” family…..the family that praises you and lifts you up when you need it most. So forget about the cheerios and whatever you do, don’t include the urinal. We are all the sweetness you need and we can certainly get pissy if that’s what you’re into.

    HUGS (and good thoughts for tomorrow, my friend)

    • Thanks, my friend. Things are starting out well, so I have a couple days breathing room before the next step.

  5. I love that comment. Someone once told me, there’s always someone willing to hang a bag of sh– over your head. Whatever is going on, I wish you the best. We should always enjoy the moment. Do the sock puppets bite?
