Simple Words are the Best

A friend of mine sent me this writing and I thought I’d pass it along to my readers with a few modifications.  (not certain of the author).

These words are simple…no frills…just plain truthful advice.  So here goes…the wisdom for a world torn to shreds, full of anxiety, looking for some word of wisdom…other than the greatest words of wisdom ( Proverbs in the Holy Bible, which are my favorite).

You can have a peaceful day :
If you can start the day without caffeine,
If you can always be cheerful, ignoring aches and pains,
If you can resist complaining and boring people with your troubles,
If you can eat the same food every day and be grateful for it,
If you can understand when your loved ones are too busy to give you any time,
If you can take criticism and blame without resentment,
If you can conquer tension without medical help,
If you can relax without alcohol,
If you can sleep without the aid of drugs…Then You Are Probably this guy below!

Now, I can’t end this blog here for I had a great deal of tension and stress today as I tried to make bread. It wasn’t a peaceful day.    Perhaps a picture or two will be better than a thousand words and I certainly didn’t have time for Yoga.

Container too small! Bread dough pouring out everywhere!

While rising in cool stove, it messed up my stove big time!

Since I was trying a new recipe, the container where I usually allow my yeast bread to rise was not large enough.  You can see the results as it overflowed…and overflowed.  Thankfully my oven was not turned on, but the clean-up was huge!  Nevertheless, life must go on.   Rescuing what I could, I continued the task at hand…making my bread.    As you can see, all was not lost!!
