God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference.
Living one day at a time; Enjoying one moment at a time; Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace; Taking, as He did, this sinful world as it is, not as I would have it; Trusting that He will make all things right if I surrender to His Will; That I may be reasonably happy in this life and supremely happy with Him Forever in the next. Amen.
--Reinhold Niebuhr
"Friendship is the hardest thing in the world to explain. It's not something you learn in school. But, if you haven't learned the meaning of friendship, you really haven't learned anything."
---Muhammad Ali

"We are driven to create at this deep wordless level of the soul because we are all fashioned in the image of a God who is an Artist." - Michael Card, Scribbling in the Sand.

I've been up about an hour and a half now. The pets have all been fed,and yes they are pets. Jake is laying on the couch with his head in my lap while I check in with my news group and work on my second cup of tea of the morning. It's really chilly outside, it's only 56 this morning. It feels wonderful but my feet are a little cold; it's supposed to be beautiful today.

I need to go to the grocery store sometime today; and would like to finish up my last load of clothes. I need to get everything gathered up so I can head to Sabrina's, when the time comes. Since it looks like she won't be having Mikaela till next Friday I'll take Jake with me when she goes into labor. I'll be staying with her since Brian has to start his new job and probably won't be able to take the time off.

So who has finished Harry Potter? I will give everyone a few more days before I start a discussion. I know of at least one person that was only on page 30 yesterday afternoon :) Andie I wonder who that was?

I think I may start at book one and read the whole series through again. I knew at least about the RAB I was right about my guess about it. I was also right about one other thing, I'm not sure if I like this book as well as I did the others. She seemed to have hurried it. It was like she was trying to force it done in so many pages instead of really letting it flow. I'm sure that the publisher has something to do with that, but I would rather have had one more book if that would have been necessary. I'm not the publisher or JK Rowlings so maybe they felt it was just time to finish. Ok I'll shut up before I give something away.

Enjoy the book and let me know what you all think.

I hope everyone has a great Sunday.

Love all,
