Critter thoughts

I've been thinking alot about life, the hand we are dealt and the paths we go down, the turns we make and the dead end roads that we sometimes stay on for way too long.

As I have gotten older, I have come to understand many things that were confusing in my youth. I know that mistakes can make you wiser, especially if you take the time to learn from them. I know that harsh words, spoken in haste or a moment of anger, can never be retrieved. I know that there is NO differential status quo in drugs, whatever your drug of choice is. A pot smoker is no higher class than a crack addict...it is simply addiction.

I know that a dead tree will not bear fruit and I believe people are like trees. I think people place little value on their roles in the family. I think it is most important that people strive to be a good role model, not only for your children, but your nephews, nieces, your childrens friends and even your own friends. Everyone needs someone to look up to. I think people either contribute or contaminate.

No matter how much I love someone, I forbid them to pollute or contaminate my children or myself. Years ago, I would just allow it or accept that it was the way it was. Today I know that I have a choice in which scenery my life plays out on.
We affect generations to come with the decisions that we make today.

I know that even though life is hard, God wants us to be a winner and not a whiner. It is during the tough times of life that we find out what we're really made of.

Don't worry about the things you cannot change. I struggle with this statement or should I say I really worry about things that I have no control over. I want to worry less and smile more. Don't You?

Well lets do it!!

Excellent post! I took me a long time, but I am finally able to let things go that I have no control over. It sure makes life easier once a person can do that.

I really do hope that you will be able to worry less and smile more. Besides, you are beautiful when you do. Also, A smile is the only thing that you can give away and gain at the same time. When you are worried, pray about it and that will calm your heart.

bpPrincess-She had a rough patch, but she is doing very well right now. She has a tough schedule that begins at six in the morning and finishes around nine in the evening. She will need to stay longer than we originally thought, but she is willing to do that.

You are so sweet to think of her and pray for her. Thank you very much dear!
