Daily Reminder # 569

How tragic is that face? Please, person, may we play some
more? See how sad I look? How can you resist me?

Well, Tara had a quick $25 visit from the vet today. She's very pleased with how she is doing. Me too, except for that really bad day on Saturday which had me very freaked out. We are going to give her three months of some kind of special anti-biotic treatment that she gets 5 day of each month.  Think I'll share a Neale Donald Walsch message from a few days back. I just read it and it's a lesson I had a really difficult time learning. Not sure I've learned it yet. I spent 10 years of my life hoping my brother would change before I gave up. I'm much better than I once was. I've come to believe that there is a gift in everything, even the most painful life experiences. That said, for myself, I would really like the Publisher's Clearinghouse truck to drive up with a big check for at least a million bucks.  Anyway, here it is. 

On this day of your life, dear friend, 
I believe God wants you to know...
..that you cannot help another who will not help him-
or herself.

In the end, all souls must walk their path -- and the
reason they are walking a particular path may not be
clear to us...or even to them at the level of ordinary
human consciousness.

Do what you can to help others, of course.  Show
love and caring whenever and wherever you can.
But do not get caught up in someone else's "story"
to the point where you start writing it.  Know what
I mean?
Love, Your Friend.... 

Some things I'm grateful for today: (Items in red are pre-gratitude an effort to play with hope and desire and let it be OK to have both, including that, in response to my efforts, the Creative Forces of the Universe will hear and say to themselves, "why that woman really OUGHT to have a truckload of money, a clothes dryer and some good company. Let's make sure she gets them as soon as possible."
