I just received a great e mail this morning from a friend... Holly Morris
and I wanted to share it with you. I mean every word. I wish I had written it myself!
After serious & cautious consideration.....your contract of friendship has been renewed for the New Year 2008!
It was a very hard decision to make. So try not to screw it up!!!
My Wish for You in 2008
May peace break into your house and may thieves come to steal your debts.
May the pockets of your jeans become a magnet for $100 bills.
May love stick to your face like Vaseline and may laughter assault your lips! May your clothes smell of success like smoking tires and may happiness slap you across the face and may your tears be that of joy.
May the problems you had forget your home address!
In simple words . May 2008 be the best year of your life!
I love the New Year. A chance to start over, refresh, renew. You know, every day can be like a new year! Forgive yourself more... Love yourself where you are and others will meet you there. Every morning is a fresh new start!!! Let's all be like the children of the world. They are so resilient.
If I haven't been the mother I wanted to me one day, my kids have the unworldly abililty to forgive and forget by the next day.(let's hope they truly forget! I would hate to be surprised on some Jerry Springer show one day with a title like "My Mama was a raving hormonal lunatic one day and it ruined my life forever... now I only sleep in cars and eat dog food". Unconditional love. It doesn't mean I can just be a crazy mom all the time and they will forgive, but it is a reminder that we should love ourselves and others like our children love us. Kids are great mirrors, they do what we do, right back at us. If you don't treat yourself like someone worthy of love... how can anyone else love you? No, I didn't have a melt down yesterday. I was just doing some long overdue praying last night and I was asking God to help me be the mother I always dreamed of being... and He reminded me that I am having a few more hormonal days than ever before and I need to learn some coping skills this year. Apparently it's only going to get worse according to my always ready with an Italian Anecdote, "Oh Sandra, you are in for some terrible times in your 40's, I did, so you will too" Mama. Thanks Ma!!!
Any suggestions on how to curb hot flashes? Maybe I'll buy a walk in freezer. MMM... sounds like heaven.
Have an incredibly prosperous 2008 and remember,
If you can't pay for it without a credit card, YOU DON'T NEED IT!
