Sunday Morning Quote (1/20/13)

“We cannot always control what happens to us, but we can learn to control our interpretation of what happens to us and in doing so learn to be more optimistic and feel better about ourselves.”

— Andrew Weil, M.D., Spontaneous Happiness

Five Friday (a day late) Happy Bringers (1/18-19/13)

1.  It’s cool again in South Georgia!  Cold actually, like it SHOULD be in January.

2.  Five-year-old Grandson Daniel’s homemade poster-style Birthday Card for my January 10th bday.  I feel so old now that I’ve reached … 39:
