It’s Friday, so I’ll leave my readers with the wisdom of a GREAT MAN.

We suffer in our own minds more than we do in reality (Seneca)

Well put, my good Seneca. We often worry about the dangers abroad, the dangers in a distant place, etc. And yet, we forget the blessings at home: our families, our friends, and our health.

Today, I am reminded of such blessings – my little daughter turns three-years old. God has blessed me with a little angel. So I’m off to a birthday party…cake, ice cream, and pizza it is!

    my late Mentor would always tell me to ‘only live through things once.’ she said when i worried about them, i was living thru them every time i worried and stressed over them … and to just stop πŸ™‚ … much easier said than done sometimes πŸ™‚
