ON THE BACK BURNER

April 4

I have a need to thank everyone who gives me affirmation of my worth. Some days, I need it because some days I just can't make that lemonade out of the lemons of life. I am envious of people who can find solace in prayer. My prayers are the kind that start off,"Dear God, Give me..". I guess that I am not all that reverent. Others can say"My faith sustains me." I question what faith has to do with it. And "it was meant to be". Of course it wasn't meant to be. You were not chosen to have cancer or a stroke. Life happens. It is what it is, is my favorite mantra. If we could pick and choose, I hope that I stand in the right line. Would that be as much fun as the challenge of waking up every morning to wondering what life has in store for me this day. I think that I would prefer to take my chances and just live the life I was dealt. Good marriage, good kids and Grandchildren ,good old and new friends. This is my life. What else is it supposed to be?

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.

Everything sounds so wonderful Leona. Venice will seem boring . I would want to move to Portownsend where the kids are living. All sounds great . Is there?
