Sir Winston Churchill is quoted as saying, "They say that nobody is perfect.  Then they tell you practice makes perfect.  I wished they'd make up their minds."

I agree with you wholeheartedly Mr. Churchill.

Book to Recommend

I am reading an interesting book that I would recommend.  The book is called God is Not Mad at You by Joyce Meyer.  The subtitle reads "You can experience real love, acceptance and guilt-free living".  That sure sounds like something I want in my life.

If this is something you are struggling with or just want reaffirmed in your life I encourage you to read this book.

God loves us because He wants to, not because we deserve it.  A point to ponder.

This week I had a molar pulled.  It has been quite a while since I had a tooth pulled and I had forgotten what it was like.  Or maybe it affected me differently this time because of my age.  The tooth came out on Tuesday.  It is now Saturday and my jaw still hurts.

Hopefully this will be the last tooth I lose.

Next week I go to the denturist to have modifications made to my partial plate to account for the pulled tooth.

I will be glad when the pain is all gone and my partial fits properly.  Then hopefully eating will be more enjoyable.

"Decide that you want it more than you are afraid of it."  -  Bill Cosby

I found the above quote on a Chicken Soup for the Soul website.  It intrigued me.

I know that fear is something that many times holds me back from some things that could have been good for me.

So now I need to stop when I find myself anxious or afraid to take that necessary step, and make the decision to want it more than I am afraid of it.

Thanks Bill.

I'm Back

It has been a while since I visited my blog and wrote something original.  I am going to work on being more regular in my writing.

This fall I made the decision that I was doing to make a career of writing articles and hopefully a book as well.  I look at this as a way of getting back into life.  My life has been very stagnant and not going anywhere.  But now I have a purpose and many goals.

I thought my life was over when I turned 50.  However, I am now 56 and have started working on the second half of my life with a refreshed look.  Now I have a reason to get up in the morning.

See you tomorrow.
