Thanks VEENAS. I appreciate the support at this time. We are about to switch around the bedroom since we had a new window and it is up high and awakens me. Looks lovely way up there but down here it is way too bright. That is the simple solution I do not want to buy more drapes, I will get it right I know I will. It only occurred to me the dawn bright light is so early now. I love light and welcome the time change but this was not well thought out !
Thanks Pat in Maine. emoticon emoticon

When hit hard by events, don't say "Why me?"
The answer to the why me question is "Why not me?
Am I so special that bad things shouldn't happen to me?"
Ask instead "What do I do next?"

emoticon emoticon emoticon FRIENDS and FRIENDSHIP emoticon emoticon emoticon

Friends are the family you choose – Jess C. Scott

A friendship that can end never really began – Publilius Syrus

Lots of people want to ride with you in the limo, but what you want is someone who will take the bus with you when the limo breaks down. – Oprah Winfrey

Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another: ‘What! You too? I thought I was the only one. ― C.S. Lewis

I value the friend who for me finds time on his calendar, but I cherish the friend who for me does not consult his calendar. – Robert Brault

I think if I’ve learned anything about friendship, it’s to hang in, stay connected, fight for them, and let them fight for you. Don’t walk away, don’t be distracted, don’t be too busy or tired, don’t take them for granted. Friends are part of the glue that holds life and faith together. Powerful stuff. – Jon Katz

Today I will live in the moment, unless it is unpleasant,
.........in which case I will eat a cookie.
