From: Brave Enough by Cheryl Strayed
Nobody will protect you from your suffering. You can't cry it away or eat it away or starve it away or walk it away or punch it away or even therapy it away. It's just there, and you have to survive it. You have to endure it. You have to live through it and love it and move on and be better for it and run as far as you can in the direction of your best and happiest dreams across the bridge that was built by your own desire to heal. Therapists and friends can help you along the way, but the healing--the genuine healing, the actual real-deal, down-on-your-knees-in-the-mud change--is entirely and absolutely up to you.

This is part of Fra Giovanni's Christmas Prayer
"I salute you! There is nothing I can give you which you have not; but there is much that, while I cannot give, you can take.
No heaven can come to us unless our hearts find rest in it today. Take Heaven.
No peace lies in the future which is not hidden in the present moment. Take Peace.
The gloom of the world is but a shadow; behind it, yet within our reach is joy. Take Joy!"

    Thanks for the Goodie! My weekend with my daughter was very relaxing and fun. Filled with way too much good food and drinks a.k.a. calories. I treasure every minute we get to spend together even if it is something as simple as a 10 minute walk.

    I remember when you took that trip up to Mackinac Island! We were in the Traverse City/Petoskey area and I was worried the colors would be all done, but they were still beautiful!.

    Hope this 5% Challenge is being good to you emoticon

    Welcome to Friday once again! I got a call today to remind me that have a dental appointment next week, and of course, that got me quite down in the mouth. . . So to cheer myself up, I decided to brighten my outlook and smile with some dental jokes. After all good dental hygiene is no laughing matter. I hope these don't leave you with a bad impression, feeling numb, or in need of some laughing gas.

    What do you call a dentist that doesn't like tea?
    Denis

    What is the most popular time for a dental appointment?
    At tooth hurty

    What the dental term for X-rays?
    Tooth pics

    What did the dentist say to his patient, the golf pro?
    You got a hole in one!

    What's the definition of a toothache?
    A pain in the mouth that sometimes drives people to extraction.

    What's the best way to get a job in the dentist's office?
    By word of mouth.

    What do you call a lecture from the dentist?
    His floss-ophy.

    Here are a couple more that should make you smile. . .

    My dentist was voted the #1 dentist in our county. All he got was a little plaque.

    A buddist monk went to the dentist, and he needed a cavity filled.
    He refused any novacaine or pain killers when they were offered.
    He decided to transcend dental medication.

    I guess these jokes must be getting a little long in the tooth, so I'll stop for now.
    But before I go, please tell me the tooth, the whole tooth, and nothing but the tooth . . .
    Did you REALLY like these jokes?
    Thanks for your support and encouragement this week, or just for dropping by to say Hi!
    Have a great day and a wonderful weekend!!!
