"Out beyond ideas of right-doing and wrong-doing there is a field. I'll meet you there." ----- Jalal ad-Din Muhammad Balkhi-Rumi, 13th century Sufi poet.

"Have faith that people do their best. I don't know anyone who would eat with pigs out of a trough in a muddy barnyard if he knew that a well-prepared meal was on the table in a clean house - do you?" Greg Baer

"The Secret in healing Narcissism is not to heal it at all, but to listen to it. Narcissism is a signal that the soul is not being loved sufficiently. The greater the Narcissism, the less love being given." ~ Thomas Moore, 'Care of the Soul'.

Last night I finished my Christmas shopping. This is the earliest I've ever been done and I admit it feels good. :biggrin: I seem to have more of the spirit than is normal for me. I hope I'm able to hold onto that feeling.

Good morning, I'm feeling very alive and I'm not sure why. Its just one of those days when I woke up eager to face whatever challenges this day might offer. My hope is one day very soon I can greet each day with this level of excitement.

Jimmie if you can bottle that positive energy I think there might be a market for it. :smile:

Yesterday I learned a little about having faith and not getting instant gratification. One of the kids who has been a constant worry completed his court ordered restituion and was released from his probation. It always makes me feel good to see these kids follow through. It gives me some real hope for their future.

I learned that the son still rises even following a series of really bad days. I'll count this as a positive even though right now I have my doubts.

Well, my husband took my son out for dinner and on the way home he (my son) fell asleep in the car. Usually this would be a catastrophe, but since we have to get up early tomorrow anyway, it's perfect! For those of you who don't have kids, it feels exactly the same way as when your boss says, "Good job. Why don't you take tomorrow off, with pay." (That only happened to me once, but I remember the feeling, and this is it!!!)

I think my daughter has probably left, or is about to leave for her first duty station. I am at peace with my decision to not contact her. I am at peace that she didn't call me. I am at peace with giving her the space she needs. I can sleep at night.

Life, I hope you get a chance to connect with your daughter at a time when its right for both of you.
I completely forget to do an assignment for a committee that I'm a member of and told them it just slipped my mind. In the past I would have come up with a bs story about why the job didn't get done. This time I took responsiblity and everyone had kind of a laugh about how life can be busy and we forget to do some things.

Life, it is great that you have found peace - I hope you and your daughter find each other in the future.

It was my youngest son's orientation day at high school which he starts in January so we spent the morning there and then had lunch out together. It often seems that he and I do not get to spend too much time together as so much of my time is taken up dealing with the crises so today was precious.

The drive to work this morning was like driving on a sheet of ice. I think it qualifies to list being in one piece as a positive. Even more important my care is in one piece. :smile:

My husband and I actually laughed and talked freely last night before going to bed in spite of all the drama lately. I awaken feeling so good that I have life and I decided to have a TREMENDOUS THURSDAY!

Peace & balance,

Nandi
