When The Going Gets Tough, Count Your Blessings

There's an old story that if everyone stood around in a circle and threw their problems in the center, they would all take their own problems back. Who else has more experience dealing with those problems anyway, I ask you.

Last night, like a bolt out of the blue, or actually the dark, it hit me like a blinding glimpse of the obvious that I was simply surround by fantastic people. Really. On-line, in real life. Just like everyone else, there are some miserable so and sos in my life. But, on balance....I need to open my eyes and see y'all out there more often.

So, take the rest of the day off. And get something totally decadent, wallowing in chocolate, and eat every last morsel of it. And grab somebody for some all-important group maintenance. I'll be back later!

i'd love to take the rest of the day off. and i think if i do, i'm going to find a Symphony bar with toffee in it, maybe some popcorn and a good movie to watch. maybe something from the 40's or so...

yes, i find i'm surrounded by great people, too. we're lucky like that. it's important to my well being.

Of course I'd take my own problems back. I'd hate to give them to anyone else.
