Words, Words, Words for a Random, Rather Roller-Coasterish Week

"Did you ever walk into a room and forget why you walked in? I think that's how dogs spend their lives." Sue Murphy

Daisy has been barking at the dog in the oven, the dog in the dishwasher, and the dog in the fireplace. The breeder was wrong; Daisy Doodle is not sensible.

"When an illness knocks you on your ass, you should stay and relax for a while before trying to get back up." Terri Guillemets

Many thanks to all who prescribed Mucinex for my cold. I'm buying it in bulk, and it's helping.

"Lord, make me an instrument of thy peace;
where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
and where there is sadness, joy.

"O Divine Master,
grant that I may not so much seek
to be consoled as to console;
to be understood, as to understand;
to be loved, as to love;
for it is in giving that we receive,
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life."
St. Francis of Assisi

On Wednesday, a funeral was held to celebrate the life of Lois K., a woman who accepted God's grace and lived this prayer in her life. If you get a chance today, please lift her family and all those grieving the loss of loved ones to cancer in prayer.


  1. good morning, susan.
    thank you for again helping us to focus and remember what is really important in our lives. that is a beautiful prayer, and it was just the right thing for this friday morning.
    bless you.

  2. So sad for your friend's family. Cancer sucks.

    I have two cats; one cat plays with the other cat's tail while the first cat pretends he doesn't notice. Also not sensible, and totally hilarious. Almost makes it worth all the puke.

  3. Your Saint Francis quote reminds me of my favorite quote by ....?...(old mind won't retrieve name)
    the first verse of it is...
    If thou couldst empty all thyself of self,
    like a shell dishabited
    then might He find thee on the ocean shelf and say, "This is not dead." and fill thee with Himself instead.


Thanks so much for taking time to comment!
