ON THE BACK BURNER

March 3

When Bob was recovering at the Rehab place, he had a room mate. (Not me) The room mate sneezed and I said "God Bless You". His answer, "He already did".Don't you just love that. I am going to use that line instead of saying,"Thank you." I was fast forward reading "Life's Daily Blessings." I get so behind, that I thought I could read ahead and not feel guilty about not being on the right reading for the right day. I found some really interesting remarks. Like this Yiddish proverb,"Where there is smoke, there is smoke". Interpretation:Sometime what we see, is what is there.Just deal with it. Good advice. Then there is: "The most beautiful thing one can do is forgive a wrong." I forgive easily. I remember what I perceive as a wrong, but I pretend that I forget it. It's better this way, It's too much of a burden not to forgive.(Remember, I remember) Here is the best:"Love tastes sweet but only with bread". I needed help with this one. But now that I know the thought process, it makes sense. It is hard to love when you are struggling to survive. Pass the bread,my sugar is sitting next to me.

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.
