not upon your past misfortunes, of which all men have some."

  3. Women too. Some days that opporunity to reflect is sacrificed to some other god - (the oh god I'm tired is one such) so its good to get reminders. F must have got one today - she arrived home in a calmer mood. Furrings and purrings. Mr T. (Whose blessings are manyfold)

  5. Having read a biography of Dickens a couple of years ago, I'm not sure he's someone I'd take life advice from in all circumstances (certainly not on how to treat one's wife...) but today's Saturday saying is good.
    Cheers, Gail!

  7. All men have some and some men have more than others. I count myself blessed each day that we are one of the ones that have some and not one of the ones that have many others. I have friends who is sings go through one thing after another after another after another

  8. And sometimes those bad things from the past turn out to be good things in the future. Life is funny that way.

  9. Every time I hear someone say God bless America, I think, "Thank you for all the blessings we already have received".
