OK... there you have it!!! A busy month to be sure. So... my thought for today ???

Smile... it takes less muscles and it just may make someone feel good today!

This is a month of great stress; good stress/bad stress all equal STRESSED.  Notice how that spelled backwards is desserts! Hmmm... interesting observation as I await the sun this morning with coffee in hand. NO WONDER WE EAT THROUGH THE DING-DONG HOLIDAYS :)

Remember to breathe; know that the anticipation of an event is most often worst than the actual event itself! Look for beauty all around you, above you; below you! LOOK WITHIN...

Did you know the Wizard of OZ turned 70 yesterday?  You would have known that if you were on my fan page on Facebook you know~ So in closing I leave you with this thought ~

"The Wizard of Oz" is 70 years old. A remake would not be as good. If Dorothy were to encounter men with no brain, no heart, and no courage today, she wouldn't be in Oz, she'd be in Congress.

Have the best day you can create today!

 Healing Heartaches, Stories of Loss & Life
 has been endorsed by one of the pioneers of Hospice and the National Association of Social Workers; Dr Bernice Catherine Harper! I am both honored and grateful to Dr Harper!!!

Hey friend, don't forget your tail trimming coming up! The moon is getting so full, it's gonna bust! I also have hopes that God will see fit to take my Aunt in his arms that night (Weds) She is SO in between worlds right now. 2 feet, planted firmly in both worlds! We will survive though. Looking forward to that Donelewega on Dec 8th, obviously I'll be needing it! Thank you for the words of wisdom every day!

It's seems so appropriate that your book is being released as the moon is appearing to burst. Most of us have that "We're not in Kansas anymore," feeling. I thank you for continuing as "role model" for me. Learning that I too could learn to use a lap-top, camera, and cell phone may have been the easy lesson. As Dorothy found herself no longer in Kansas, I am no longer in Florida and my physical heart cannot take the hilly mountainous terrain... heart surgery was been mentioned to me after two days of testing and I again thank you for being a role model for me. Guess I gotta do what I need to for future grandchildren. I will learn to enjoy OZ. Thank you for taking the time to blog and being a role model...and a prayer to anonymous and all your readers.
