IT'S BAAAAACK !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm not sure what I did to make it go away- and I'm even less sure as to what I did to make it come back= but it came back--MY OLD TEMPLATE!!!!!
Complete with all ya'lls links and everything! Thank You Lord for the small blessings in my Life! Even though my scores show my life basically stinks and my Job and personality fit are for a Gay Left Handed Chinese Waiter- all else is OK!!!!!!

How Absolutely awesome! Thanks Father for such a small surprise that has me grinning from ear to ear at 3:25 in the morning. Not that I was that upset about it to begin with...I mean let's face it- losing your Blog template as compared to Oh I don't know--say an IED going off in Iraq, and you coming home to a wife and two children who don't hardly know you in a Wheelchair- sure seems like piddlin stuff compared to getting a Template back to me! But we always seem to accentuate the NEGATIVE

TODAY- LET'S MAKE IT POSITIVE

Let's all of us take a deep breath for TODAY- (- SUNDAY AUGUST 19th 2007...and decidedly PICK something out to be thankful for. Pass the word- Pick one thing that you are thankful for- anything... A Child, a Parent- No rain, rain, a Good Movie, Dragonfly's, A Friend= JUST PICK SOMETHING-ANYTHING- TODAY- THAT No matter what mood you are in, OR HOW YOU FEEL OR WHAT STATE OF HEALTH YOU ARE IN- YOU WILL BE THANKFUL- TRULY GRATEFUL FOR THAT ONE SMALL THING.

Then I challenge you- to get off your butt and do something!

I Challenge you-

1. TO PICK A PERSON OR GROUP OF PEOPLE...
2. E-MAIL, CALL, WRITE, OR DROP BY--AND TELL THEM...
3. WHAT, YOU ARE THANKFUL FOR.... SHARE IT WITH SOMEONE SOMEHOW....
4. WHY YOU ARE THANKFUL, FOR WHAT YOU ARE THANKFUL, (SHARE THE STORY)
5. TELL THEM WHY YOU PICKED THEM...
6. CHALLENGE THEM TO PICK SOMEONE ELSE AND DO THE SAME THING


WITH THE POWER OF THANKFULNESS IN A WORLD THAT SEEMS LIKE IT IS SPINNING HOPELESSLY OUT OF CONTROL- WE CAN HARNESS THAT POWER AND SPEED OF TECHNOLOGY- GRAB IT, HOLD IT, SMELL IT, RELISH AND CHERISH IT IT, SAVOR IT--AND THEN PASS IT ON IN MINUTES OR HOURS AND AFFECT THE ENTIRE PLANET.

IT WILL NOT TAKE MUCH OF A SACRIFICE AT ALL FROM EACH OF US TODAY ---SUNDAY-- TO MAKE AN EFFORT-----MAKE A MOVE---START A MOVEMENT OF SHARING SOMETHING- ANYTHING LARGE OR SMALL TO BE THANKFUL FOR. IT'S FREE!!!!!! YOU DON'T HAVE TO BUY IT- ALTHOUGH YOU CERTAINLY COULD-AND GIVE IT TO SOMEONE!!!! HERE'S A CRAZY THOUGHT---- PUT $1:00 IN AN ENVELOPE AND GIVE IT TO SOMEONE. HECK SEND IT TO ME- I'LL BE THANKFUL!! I DARE YOU!!!!!! I DOUBLE DOG DARE YOU!!!!!!!
