My wife Jilda loves quotes and inspirational stuff as much as I do. She came across one the other day that blew me away. I'm not sure of the author, but it goes like this:
My mind is a garden
My thoughts are the seeds
My harvest will either be
Flowers or weeds

What beautiful words. I know for a fact that they are true. I got up this morning and I was in a good mood. We were drinking coffee and listening to music. I pay most of our bills online now. One exception is our water bill and I thought Jilda was sending the check and she thought I was sending the check...bottom line, if it didn't get paid today it would be late. All of a sudden, my mood was shot. I was aggravated at her and in turn she got miffed at me.
I then thought back to this little mind is a garden my thoughts are the seeds.......I then apologized for behaving badly.
I smiled and made another cup of coffee. I decided to change my thoughts. Buddy and I would take the opportunity to run out to Jasper and do some sightseeing and pick up some things there and pay the water bill.
It turned out to be an enjoyable experience and my day was salvaged.
The thing is this: crap happens to everybody there is nothing you can do to stop it, but you can change they way you react to what happens.
Y'all stay warm on this cold and rainy night.
