As I stumble around the house, feverishly clutching my last box of Puffs Plus, and trying to breathe through my left ear (the only orifice in my head that is not completely closed), I realize I am not up to writing a post today, nor am I willing to fail on my New Year's goal of posting every M-W-F. Certainly not in the first month of the year.
So I offer this. It came to me in an e-mail with some lovely black and white pictures of flowers but blogger doesn't want to upload the pictures and I don't have the energy to fight it. Even without the pictures - I think the sentiment is worth sharing.
There once was a woman who woke up one morning, looked in the mirror, and noticed she had only three hairs on her head.
'Well,' she said, 'I think I'll braid my hair today.'
So she did and she had a wonderful day.
The next day she woke up, looked in the mirror and saw that she had only two hairs on her head.
'Hmmm,' she said, 'I think I'll part my hair down the middle today.'
So she did and she had a grand day.
The next day she woke up, looked in the mirror and noticed that she had only one hair on her head.
'Well,' she said, 'today I'm going to wear my hair in a pony tail.'
So she did, and she had a fun, fun day.
The next day she woke up, looked in the mirror and noticed that there wasn't a single hair on her
'YAY!' she exclaimed. 'I don't have to fix my hair today!'
Attitude is everything.
No groaner today. (And there was rejoicing throughout the land.)
