It has been a week of general "repairs". They don't make stuff like they used to. My mom's 1959 Frigidaire has only been moved to the back porch..still hummin' along. Two "new" refrigerators have come and gone in that time, each lasting about ten years. That's about the life of things made these days. But here's the line I love..."they don't make parts for this one no more". Made me think about gettin' older, I guess one day some young doctor is gonna take a look at me and say...They just don't make parts to fix what's wrong with you!

I often feel that a prayer needs to be perfect in word and precise in meaning.
Crafted so that there can be no mistake in my heartfelt request.
That being said, I have often found myself stiffened and my words measured…choking the natural out of the process.
I seem to do that in many areas of my life, judging and hesitating, when all that is needed is the gentle reminder that prayer is a mosaic of heart and soul
The utterance need not make perfect sense for the intention already does.

I was never a "pretty" girl,in the classical sense of the word, but I smiled a lot...and laughed...a lot, and developed this quirky style that has gotten me through some very challenging times. I don't think we ever stop comparing ourselves to others in some shape, form, or fashion (literally). But we all adjust and settle in. This morning, for whatever reason I woke up with this little message from Miss Universe. You are Dah-vine! Have a great Tuesday, Sisters.
