This blog like most have more readers than commenters. I appreciate everyone who takes their time to read, and when possible to comment. I have many folk say they read the blog. Even Evelyn, she must have been busy lately because she hasn’t e-mailed me and asked where it the blog entry, no excuses!

As many know I have an internet friend, lindie. I had a journal for a long time with no comments. The only comment I did have, was made by, ‘Bigger ears’. Later I was to learn it was actually our older son. Anyway one night out of the blue I had this wonderful comment, signed ‘lindie’. I was remembering our trip to Cape Cod. I mentioned we had an over look of Buzzard’s Bay.
I don’t remember the entire comment but it referred to when she lived in the area toward which I had been looking. When she lived there she was a young military wife, and mentioned pushing the stroller with the laundry on the arms of the stroller behind the baby, as they went to the launder mat. She continued, ‘we were so poor then.’ That itself, brought back so many memories, military folk at one time used the laundry mat regularly.
Anyway that established a connection that has continued. She pops in every once in awhile and spreads a little joy, if you read this one lindie, thanks for being around.
Back to the serenity prayer. It is one of those things that is good for everyone, a believer or not.
If one is not a believer, you cannot beat the philosophy, if you studied for years. IT has a depth of knowledge rarely found in four lines.
They can be (and are) expounded on in hundreds of pages of books, but it still boils down to those four simple, but powerful lines.
Simple, oh yes simple, but oh so hard to put into practice. Sometimes it seems that everyone must be burned, before they believe. A cat will sit or climb on a hot stove once. There after they well never, ever do it again. As a matter of fact, you will never see them on a cold stove again. LOL
Thanks to everyone who reads regularly, I do appreciate you taking your time here.
I like the words of wisdom from Frances, “HE is!”, speaking in answer to Fred’s quick prayer, “Lord Help me !”
