�In all labor there is profit; but the talk of the lips tendeth only to penury� Prov 14:23 (Don't be mad about the results you didn't get, because you only talked about it and didn't do the work it required.)
You may be old, sick or very old and decrepit have a kind of emaciated body but if you practice, the perfection of yoga is certainly possible Hatha Yoga Pradipika
In "The Power of NOW" Eckhart Tolle teaches us to live for today. If we do that, all the days of the year will add up to our success.
"Never wait for the proper mood to start a thing, nor until the spirit moves you. Make your own mood. Make your own spirit. How? ACT. Do something � anything. Inspiration seldom generates action. Action always creates inspiration."

Thank you for leaving the comment on my SparkPage about the novel The Good Earth. It sounds like a perceptive but somewhat gruesome book. I have always believed that a parent's job is to raise their children to be independent, productive citizens of the world. That includes supporting their efforts and teaching them whatever skills I can - or seeing that they are educated in such things. My husband raised his sons as best he could along those lines. We were not perfect parents but we succeeded in those goals. Still, we each have to do what we think is best; there are always lessons for both our children and ourselves to learn. From the pictures on your SparkPage I would say you have raised your family well. Best wishes as you all move forward.

Hey Jibbie - thanks for the goodie you sent a few weeks ago. It's funny how a pretend spa treatment can make a person feel almost as good as having the real thing. Thanks for thinking of me.
