What Do You Mean You Don't Know?

You’re only as emotionally strong as this

You’re only as strong as your willingness to surrender.

Often, the things we can’t control and the things we can look the same. Be careful, be focused, and be discilined.

Having a strong, peaceful spirit makes life easier (but not easy) to deal with.

After yesterday’s bi-annual Gastroenterologist visit, we are scheduling number 10 before the end of the year.

Love Delta Airlines? Yes!!

Love the unusually loud and high pitched sound inflight from MSP to PDX for three hours yesterday? No.

Chewing gum.

Had to chew a second round for the other ear.

No one knew.

The ease in which bad mouthing the airline could have spewed forth was staggering.

But it didn’t. Not even for a second.

The Universe, God, a higher power, whatever you call it – is in charge of patience.


Patience is not only a distant goal that we seek, but also the means by which we arrive at that goal.

Prayers are answered in God’s time, not ours.

Why do we forget that so easily?
