- Finding this quote by Bob Marley - "Truth is, everybody is going to hurt you; you just gotta find the ones worth suffering for." - especially relevant this week. I was hurt recently by a person I have known for a long time, and this person has hurt me numerous times in the past. From my vantage point, I have done a lot for this person but I will no longer be helping out as they are not worth the anguish. It hurts me to do it but it needs to be done.
- Here is a little amusement to balance out some of the humorless points: Two hunters are out in the woods when one of them collapses. He doesn't seem to be breathing and his eyes are glazed. The other guy whips out his phone and calls the emergency services. He gasps, "My friend is dead! What can I do?" The operator says "Calm down. I can help. First, let's make sure he's dead." There is a silence, then a gun shot is heard. Back on the phone, the guy says "OK, now what?"
- Hope you have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend. As we gather with family and friends on Memorial Day, we need to remember to celebrate the blessings of our hard-won freedom and those who made it possible.
I will persevere. I will keep moving forward. I will be the stream.
