Monday Morning As The Sun Came Up


EEEGGAAADDD... Are you tired today???? heehe

It was quite the holiday for many; travel, family gatherings, cooking, lotsa food, tradition, maybe new and different traditions...

And then... people took to the cars like fish to water and off the the malls they went! SHOP TIL YOU DROP... that's the age old expression isn't it?  Or how about, "when the going gets tough, the tough go shopping".  And then of course yesterday football was the main event in many a household and the leftovers were once again eaten; families were on the road; tired but heading back to their homes (with sandwiches made of turkey!).  And today with tired bodies and memories; they return to school and work!

So, how are you going to embrace your day?  The sun is starting to rise through the Spanish Moss this morning and the gratitude needs no list or paper!  Thought I forgot didn't you?  Nope, I remembered!
OK... got your list handy... so let's get to listing~~~~

You might need to start two lists beginning on the first day of December!  One list on the heading I would like you to write "blessings I give" and draw a line down the middle of the paper; on the other side write "blessings I receive".  On the next paper you will draw a line down the middle of the paper and on one side write, "gifts I will give myself this holiday season" and on the other side write "things I no longer want (feelings/thoughts/things)".
Each day you are to work on your list!  Not as easy as it sounds which is why you only have to do one a day on each paper! Deal?

OK, your thought for this Monday:

An old Cherokee chief was teaching his grandson about life...

"A fight is going on inside me," he said to the boy.

"It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves.
"One is evil -
he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, self-doubt, and ego.
"The other is good -
 he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith.

"This same fight is going on inside you - and inside every other person, too."

The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather,

"Which wolf will win?"

The old chief simply replied,

"The one you feed."
