See the lovely bruise on my forehead ~ that was the result of being "jumped" by a few 6th grade girls and having my lunch money stolen. Our Maid ~ Josephine ~ told me "the next time they hit you ~ fall to the ground and pretend like you're dead.......then they'll leave you alone." She was right ~ but after that I always brought extra money to school so I'd be able to eat lunch.
Last week was such a "bad news" week. It seemed like every single day brought more bad news and heartache. I spent most of the week in bed ~ it was warm there and I could effectively "dwell" on my the latest drama. So ~ today I decided that Josephine's advice doesn't apply in my current situation. I need to quit playing dead and get on with living and enjoying my life.......
So, I'm only looking forward ~ last week is ancient history. I'm blessed with a very short memory.
May your joy be as long as a Rabbit's Ears and your Sorrow as short as his Tail.
