When setting off on the path that will move you forward in life, use your rear mirror for its intended purpose. To see what's approaching, so you can respond accordingly. They're not for looking at what you left behind. Stay the course...no detours and U-turns.

I witnessed a miracle today. It was not a coincidence. It wasn't irony, nor happenstance. I witnessed a flat out indisputable divine intervention. It's not a story for me to share. But it was definitely orchestrated for me to witness. It's a story that's about 20 years in the making. In the midst of so much personal toil, this was EXACTLY what I needed.
I believe in a power greater than myself (God). I believe in total surrendering myself to God when circumstances are beyond my ability to control. Witnessing the unfolding of today's events are a reminder of why that is the foundation of my belief system. So with faith increased and hope renewed, I feel like pressing forward.
One man's DISAPPOINTMENT is another man's BLESSING
One man's DISTRACTION is another man's MOTIVATION
One man's IRRITANT is another man's ENTERTAINMENT
One man's COMMON is another is another man's PRECIOUS
One man's REGRET is another man's REWARD
One man's WHORE is another man's QUEEN
One man's TRASH is another man's TREASURE

As temperatures dip dangerously low across the Midwest and East Coast, I like many other typically busy people find myself feeling a bit of cabin fever. I've made breakfast and dinner. Sorted two loads of laundry. Cleaned my bedroom. And started organizing my daughter's room.
But I need to bust this popsicle stand! I gotta get out of here. The snow has subsided. The snow plow and salt truck have made their way down my side street. My son and I have brainstormed outing possibilities. He'd prefer to go skating. Mrs. Shopaholic can hear the clearance racks seductively calling my name.
For those of you who share my conundrum, stay warm...and stay safe.
