A Brand New Day!

Woke up to thunder! Sheets of rain! Cleen beutiful rain. how i love it. as soon as the temp got to 49degrees, i threw open the doors. how can the smell of water and mud smell so so cleen!
I love it.
It just quenchs me.
(altho cleening my dog off evry sngl time he gos owt is a chore lol)

what is 'it' for yuo? what gets yuo going?

Boy I have needed a kick in the pants too! I tend to spend more time lookng owt my window, on my iPad now. hehe but! but! I do have etsy apps on it so no exuses now! *wink*

have yuo evr thot boy, this day is just too mcch. I want to share wth yuo "Just For Today". most of yuo probly alredy no it. but it is a wondrfl upliftng peese. Its rittn by Kenneth Holmes, for Al-Anon, famlys of alcoholcs. My dad was an alcoholc. I have my own vews. For those who are helpd by AA and Al-Anon, Blessed Be. Prsnly, I had a problm wth my dad waking up evry day and saying to himslf, 'im an alcoholc'. it seems so self-defeetng to begin a day defining yuorslf that way! I start my day, and say to myslf "I fucking ROCK!'.......or if i dont feel good, i can find somthng awsom abowt myslf. i was like tthat abowt cancer too. I refusd to let it define me. I am not a cancer patient. I am a photographer, a wife, a mothr, a nana, a dauter, a frend.......who is enjoying remissn from cancer.
But this riting has sertnly gottn me thru some ruff days. somtims yuo cant take one day at a time. somtims yuo have to go one hour at a time. and tthats ok.

 Just for Today
 Just for today, I will try to live through this day only,
 and not tackle my whole life problem
 at once. I can do something for twelve hours
 that would appall me if I felt that I had to
 keep it up for a lifetime.

 Just for today, I will be happy. This assumes to
 be true what Abraham Lincoln said, that
 "most folks are as happy as they make up
 their minds to be."

 Just for today, I will try to strengthen my mind.
 I will study. I will learn something useful.
 I will not be a mental loafer. I will read
 something that requires effort, thought and

 Just for today, I will adjust myself to what is,
 and not try to adjust everything to my own
 desires. I will take my "luck" as it comes,
 and fit myself to it.

 Just for today, I will exercise my soul in three
 ways: I will do somebody a good turn, and
 not get found out. I will do at least two
 things I don't want to--just for exercise.
 I will not show anyone that my feelings are
 hurt; they may be hurt, but today I will not
 show it

 Just for today, I will be agreeable. I will look
 as well as I can, dress becomingly, talk low,
 act courteously, criticize not one bit, not
 find fault with anything and not try to improve
 or regulate anybody except myself.

 Just for today, I will have a program. I may not
 follow it exactly, but I will have it. I will
 save myself from two pests: hurry and indecision.

 Just for today, I will have a quiet half hour all
 by myself, and relax. During this half hour,
 sometime, I will try to get a better perspective
 of my life.

 Just for today, I will be unafraid. Especially I
 will not be afraid to enjoy what is beautiful,
 and to believe that as I give to the world, so
 the world will give to me.

ok. a littl humr heer. blond or polock, take yuor pick.
