hey, maybe i actually am not so hopeless after all

anyway---just rambling

added later:

here's a good exercise: ask yourself why you were starting to fall into a bad mood? Answer: I read something on the forums that didn't set too well with me.. but i will be danged if i can recall what it was.. funny how the mind works.. you'd think one could recall such things especially when it was only about 10 minutes ago. But in any case

Are you sure?

Our parish is in a bad part of town. It is locked except during Mass, however, if you pop in the Parish Office one of us will let you in to pray.

I just wanted to come back on and thank everyone for their prayers over this time. I am still having some serious issues at work so I would appreciate your continued prayers. I see a light at the end of the tunnel but I am going to have to do some serious self-reflection and thinking after this.

like getting out of your connection to the highly volatile oil bidness? i remember back in the early 90s there were bumper stickers saying "pray for $40 a barrel"... that was back when oil was hovering around $10 a barrel and every day you went into work wondering if there was going to be another purge :verymad:

i managed to last until the downturn in '02... really sad since the bidness went crazy and people were making money hand over fist within a few years after that...sure would have helped out our retirement nest egg had i been able to stay for that :? :verymad: ... all in all , i think i managed to miss 4 of the times our company was laying off people... the 5th one got me... probably because i was approaching a time with the company that would be beneficial to me because of my seniority

Nobody is dead and nobody is wounded. It is a good day.

I like this quote which some on the Internet attribute to Buddha, but probably not, it doesn't matter who said it:

"Let us all be thankful, for if we didn't learn a lot today at least we learned a little, and if we didn't learn a little, at least we didn't get sick, and if we got sick, at least we didn't die; so, let us all be thankful."

And another one I like, which I have on a laminated card I bought in a Christian bookshop which I carry around with me (the card not the shop):

"Lord, help me to remember that nothing is going to happen today which You and I together can't handle."

The year’s at the spring,
And day's at the morn;
Morning's at seven;
The hill-side’s dew-pearled;
The lark's on the wing;
The snail's on the thorn;
God's in his heaven—
All's right with the world!

Pippa Passes

Once upon a time, when trying to sleep in about three inches of water, someone said, in the night:

"Thirty years from now, when you're sitting around telling stories about how great is was in the Corps, remember right now."

Yes, I do too, that's why I carry it around with me, in my pocket or handbag. I need to remember that every day, though it's not always easy.

Some people take some things unnecessarily far too seriously. You don't, flyingaway. I like you. Even though we very much disagree about many things, if we met in real life, I know I would get on well with you. I have friends I disagree with, including one who believes in all kinds of weird conspiracy theories which I totally disagree with, but one thing we share is we never take any of it so seriously that we can't have a laugh and lots of hugs.
