(I'm wondering if the Cat was Photoshopped in?)

Had a really good weekend. Nothing major-...nothing minor----just riiiiiight. Got a lot of busy work done.... shuffling a pile of papers here to a pile here and scanning this in so it will look cool for school. I love doing that & accomplishing very little if anything at all. It doesn't matter!! Moved this to here and that to there----well---because it's ergonomically friendly that way---Fung Sway~!!!!!!

(I know that's not how ya spell it but I honestly didn't know the correct way!)

Some folks will tell- some folks will say,
there's a certain word, and a most practical way,
a special tone on a certain day- that only the most: most balanced...may say,

they can utter the word on a foot or a toe, in a corner facing South
or the North -toward the snow!
can you feel the lines all magnetic and great---
no-no, that's, only my Cell- set on vibrate.

Any WHO Horton- may this upcoming week be one of Blessings, adventure, a spot of diarrhea on Thursday, High Colonicaling ourselves into next weekend. I work tomorrow and then a girl wants off Tuesday- so I'll work Monday, Thursday and Friday of this week-and I just had Fri, Sat, Sun off (my usual). So I's happy!

I don't mean to sound all sappy and certainly don't mean to get in anyones face- but I think you should be really really Thankful for those times when things are going a little- well- a "lot" smoother than usual. A lot of times I think we tend to get caught up in the "victims" role- most times unintentionally, but people are always ready with an atta boy- atta girl and support- so sometimes we stay there for a bit! And a lot of times or MOST of the time LIFE tries to keeps us there. So when we have that respite- we surely need to enjoy it. I Love it when other people get breaks and good things happen to them.

And I'm not so sure that's all that bad that we struggle and fight for the most part. While I'm sure praising God for smooth sailing right now- I wouldn't trade anything for the rough months and bumps of just a little while back. Or earlier in life!
I chose to take those adversities into the fire with me and make them part of myself- becoming a stronger person for it. Sharper-Smarter-Wiser- Iron sharpens iron---Does it work every time?

Why- Yes.....I believe it does-or better said "CAN." If we are really living in the moment and setting our minds, wills and Spirits towards the most positive goals that WE have set, and are STRIVING for--then I think you can succeed more often than not. That being said: are there things that can clean your clock, devastate you completely, knock you so far...etc. YES!!!!!! And for those times there are people like you to link arms and stand together in the face of "whatever" all over this country. (Should we have theme music in the background??)



Love ya guys and gals,

  1. What a great post, John. I'll be thinking on this -especially on a Monday. :)

  2. I'm so glad that things are going well for you - it certainly is a wonderful feeling when that happens. I find that when things go smoothly for too long a time I start to get nervous wondering what disaster is about to fall...

  3. "We shall come rejoicing, bringing in the sheaves"....sounds like life is going your way!

  4. Thanks all!~

    Angel!! {{{{{{{{ hugs}}}}}}}}}}}}}}!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Thanks Mrs Elle. Is everyone well? LOL. Boy am I a poet?

  5. Nice job, Juansito! A wonderful, funny and thought-provoking post.

    God doesn't want us to settle for mediocre when through Him we can rise to the challenge and achieve great things. :)

    Have a great week!

  6. So true John. I'm really glad things are going well for you. :)
