Thoughtful Spot Sunday . . .


"Learn to accept adversity.  No matter who you are, you are going to have some.  But do not fear the winds of adversity.  Remember, a kite rises against the wind, rather than with it!"  
~  Elder Jacob De Jager

Today, let me, like the kite - climb higher and higher until I sour into the sunshine!  And if I spend the whole day trapped in the house, just sitting near and window in a sunbeam, at least let me be cheerful about it.

So there, Adversity.  I can hang on a long as you can.  You may depress me, but I'm darned if you're going to beat me! 

Sunday Blessings and warm hugs,
