Message

Just last night I copied this quote from Anne Lamott in her novel, Blue Shoe:


It was not facing what life dealt that made you crazy, it was, but rather trying to set life straight where it was unstraightenable.

This morning I opened an e-mail from a friend which had this quote attached:

Life is not the way it's supposed to be.. It's the way it is..
The way we cope with it, is what makes the difference.

These seem like two very similar ideas received in such a short period of time.  I am thinking the universe is trying to send me a message and that I better listen.

I think you may be right. Those quotes made me think of Gabby Giffords.

Here's my quote. "Ah.....just roll with it!" While you're rolling, stop and smell the roses.

"Keep your expectations low." That helps me enjoy what actually comes along.

Wonderful quotes to live by. Kind of a version of the Serenity Prayer.

Actually, I think you were maybe just supposed to pass this on to me.
