It was four weeks ago today that I had surgery and I feel good.
Today was a special visiting day for parents for the Christmas season. The weather was perfect but only 40 parents came. There were games and activities for the children who did not have a visitor. In fact we barbecued for them.
Thomas Jefferson was one of the most intelligent men in American history. His ideas about responsibility that still apply today.
- Never put off until tomorrow what you can do today. I have tried to live this way since I first read this in grade school. I am six months ahead in radio shows and 80 updates ahead.
- Never trouble another for what you can do for yourself. Although I am not mechanically talented I have tried to do as much as I can without bother someone else.
- Never spend your money before you have it. God spoke to my heart when I came to Guatemala telling me “What you have, you need and what you do not have, you do not need.”
- Never buy what you do not want just because it is cheap.
- Pride costs us more than hunger, cold and thirst.
- We never repent of having eaten too little. I need this!
- Nothing is troublesome that we do willingly.
- How much pain has cost us the evils that never happened. I am walking through something even now that has not happened. It is foolishness on my part.
- Take things always by their smooth handle.
- If angry, count to ten before you speak, if very angry count to 100.
I wish I had learned to count earlier in life.
