Wait until the time is right. It is self-defeating to postpone or procrastinate; it is also self-defeating to act too soon, before the time is right. (Melody Beattie, The Language of Letting Go, 12 November)
I looked for a book, off and on, for three days. It's one I'm thinking about reading in 2010. Yesterday I noticed that I couldn't see the books behind two or three wooden statues on a bookshelf. I knew, as soon as I realized that the statues were blocking the view, that the book I wanted would be in that spot. It was!
Saturday afternoon we had a surprise visitor. Phillip stopped by for a visit. His parents built a house in our neighborhood many years ago. We hadn't seen Phillip for many years. We enjoyed catching up on news about his family, his father and siblings.
