He Speaks To My Heart

Birthday time is Friday.

Cards are arriving.

Handwritten on my son's card is the following:

When the sun shines, enjoy it,
When it rains, enjoy it.
All things in life, let them come and let them go. This the secret of life that keeps one from getting upset.
The Buddha says that all things in life and in the world are in constant change, so do not become attached to them.

Callie news - I was so worried about her yesterday as she would not eat or drink. This morning she is herself. Stitches come out in 10 days.

How nice to reach another milestone. Happy Birthday!
Your son has found profound insight on how to live simply with joy. Good for him and I'm glad you shared his quote with us.
Animals, like people find healing in their own way and time. Glad to hear Callie is recovering nicely.

Cloudhands, Balisha, Tabor Beverly and Laura - thank you.
Wonder if I need to sign myself as the "Ancient One". But do not feel ancient or old. Guess that is good or I am off mentally. lol
