“Librans born between the 4th and 13th of October are a little wacky by nature but harmless. If that’s you, life is a bundle of fun and you can expect the unexpected from time to time. You like the surprises that life throws at you.”

Well I think that just about¬†sums it up ūüėÄ

Every so often I check my horoscope for fun.
I will only check it at the end of the day, I don’t want it dictating how my day will go.

Often it is accurate-ish ūüėÄ

Today’s however, was not

A forthcoming social event that you’re planning to host in your home, Angie, could inspire some minor redecorating today. You might decide to repaint your living room, or put out some new plants or pictures. Your aesthetic sense is very high today, so don’t put it off. Go to it now, while your imagination is flowing freely. You’ll be very happy with the results, and they won’t be lost on your guests!

I think not

I can barely keep the girls bathroom clean and keep up on the laundry let alone plan a party and re friggin decorate. My Aesthetic sense is void and my imagination not flowing ūüėÄ

But now that I’ve read this I am feeling a little creative, hmmmm I could move that plant over there and put that picture on that wall and move that couch………………

Do any of you read your daily horoscopes or just take life as it comes?

The little girl and the Atheist

Daughter # 1 sent this to me a few days ago…

An atheist was seated next to a little girl on an airplane and he turned
to her and said, “Do you want to talk? Flights go quicker if you strike
up a conversation with your fellow passenger.”

The little girl, who had just started to read her book, replied to the total
stranger, “What would you want to talk about?”

“Oh, I don’t know,” said the atheist. “How about why there is no God,
or no Heaven or Hell, or no life after death?” as he smiled smugly.

“Okay,” she said. “Those could be interesting topics but let me ask
you a question first. A horse, a cow, and a deer all eat the same
stuff – grass. Yet a deer excretes little pellets, while a cow turns
out a flat patty, but a horse produces clumps. Why do you suppose that is?”

The atheist, visibly surprised by the little girl’s intelligence,
thinks about it and says, “Hmmm, I have no idea.”¬† To which
the little girl replies, “Do you really feel qualified to discuss
God, Heaven and Hell, or life after death, when you don’t know shit?”

And then she went back to reading her book.

Out of the mouth of daughter # 3

old soul

My youngest daughter¬†Ms. #3¬†is an “old soul”.

She is very insightful like many children but sometimes the thoughts in her head blow me away..

Some, ok most mornings I’m a little short on time, she¬†often says “if you would organize your time better” or “lay out your clothes the night before” or my favorite “make our lunches the night before” …..apparently then I wouldn’t be running short on time!!!

This morning she said to me “you know the math you do with letters?” I said “yes, algebra” she says “yeah I love that kind of math, it’s so easy, I don’t even think my student teacher understands it..”¬†??? REALLY¬† ūüėĬ†

Tonight¬†the two of us are¬†watching tv and a new show¬†comes on called “Preachers’ Daughters” well Ms. Daughter #3 had something to say¬†about that too….

She said “you see what happens when your raise your kids¬†in a strict¬†household, that’s what happens,rebellion!”¬† as she “strictly” points at the t.v¬†.REALLY?¬†¬†First of all she is¬†under the age of 15¬†using the¬†phrases “strict¬†household” and “rebellion” and¬†¬†totally¬†grasping what can¬†happen in a “strict¬†household¬†”¬†….most of the time.

If memory serves me correctly my mother gave me a copy of this prayer when Ms. Daughter¬†#3¬†was born ūüėÄ

God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.

Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
Taking, as He did, this sinful world as it is, not as I would have it;
Trusting that He will make all things right if I surrender to His Will;
That I may be reasonably happy in this life and supremely happy with Him Forever in the next.

Amen.
