So anyway, I'm glad it's back, welcome back Blogger. I hope you find my post from the other day. It was a lovely quote by Gilda Radner. Perhaps Blogger will find it and share it again, perhaps they won't. Certainly not in my power to control and no point worrying about it. But it was a lovely quote. :)
I just saw another quote which I just have to share:
The chief cause of failure and unhappiness is trading what you want most for what you want now.
That hit me right in the weight area. I'm struggling. Lordy, it's seems I've been struggling always with it. I guess it's because I trade what I want most for what I want now. Right now I want the chocolate. Have not grown up enough to make myself realize that I can't have all the chocolate and maintain a healthy weight. Self-control is lacking here. grrrr (hate admitting weaknesses).
So about yesterday. You're probably just dying to know what it was I was planning to share with you. ;)
Yesterday, I learned that my friend Kate was right when she told me that the universe provides. You see, at the beginning of March I received a speeding ticket. It's the 4th one I've had in the past 30 years. The other 3 were well-earned. By that I mean that I was speeding, and deserved the tickets. In each case I really wasn't paying attention to my driving, twice I was actually just driving along admiring the scenery. (Once was Fall leaves in blazing, glorious colors, the other time was Winter tree limbs etched with snow and ice. Both just beautiful.) Anyway, this time, I was being careful. You see, awhile back, Master gave me a wonderful car to drive. It's small, rather unique in that they didn't make many of them, and fast. Really fast. Built with more than just a fast engine, it has all the other things that make race cars fast like suspension and brakes and other technical things. As He explained to me once, if a car is going to go super fast it has to be able to stop super fast too. I'm sure that's a supreme over-simplification of the engineering that goes into these kinds of cars, but it's really as much as I need to know.
