I thought tonight was Witches’ Meetup at Hannah Flanagan’s. I was a little late as usual, and found Ishani and Wolfgang waiting for me… nobody else was there. This was singularly unusual, since Lady Owl is ALWAYS there… However, we sat and talked about it, and noticed that tonight was only the THIRD Tuesday of the month, and we meetup on the FOURTH. hehehehehe oh well
But it turned into a powerful evening anyhow, as Ishani and Wolfgang and I talked about everything from here to there, and then Wolfgang did some consultation with me. I won’t go into details, but a lot of smudges have been wiped off my soul, and I should be in better shape to deal with myself.
Still no word on Frankie. Grandma is doing fine, as fine as a person less than a week out of surgery can be (with an expected 5 more weeks of rehabilitation before they can send her home, at the earliest). Mom and Dad are worn out. My cold is better. The usual.
In your journey through life, may you step in no cosmic cowflops!
Be thankful that you don’t already have everything you desire.
If you did, what would there be to look forward to?
Be thankful when you don’t know something,
for it gives you the opportunity to learn.
Be thankful for the difficult times.
During those times you grow.
Be thankful for your limitations,
because they give you opportunities for improvement.
Be thankful for each new challenge,
because it will build your strength and character.
Be thankful for your mistakes.
They will teach you valuable lessons.
Be thankful when you’re tired and weary,
because it means you’ve made a effort.
It’s easy to be thankful for the good things.
A life of rich fulfillment comes to those who are also thankful for the setbacks.
Gratitude can turn a negative into a positive.
Find a way to be thankful for your troubles, and they can become your blessings.
And the ultimate affirmation:
I’m smart enough,
and, gosh darn it,
people like me.
