Rough last month

The last 34 days have been pretty rough, with my mother becoming seriously ill, one sister with her own health problems, mandatory furlough days, two extra board meetings thrown in, classes I'm taking, and my neighbor calling the police on my dog barking because we forgot one was left outside when called to say mom was being taken by ambulance back to the hospital.

Things have got to get better. I got the following from my sister-in-law this morning and it brightened my day.

Inner Peace: This is so true

If you can start the day without caffeine,

If you can always be cheerful, ignoring aches and pains,

If you can resist complaining and boring people with your troubles,

If you can eat the same food every day and be grateful for it,

If you can understand when your loved ones are too busy to give you any time,

If you can take criticism and blame without resentment ,

If you can conquer tension without medical help,

If you can relax without liquor,

If you can sleep without the aid of drugs,

Then You Are Probably The Family Dog!
