Put your umbrella up when it's raining.

Mel said...

You're kidding---right?

Well....according to the Fairies this morning:

Seek balance.
Balance emotions with reason.
Combine detachment with doing our part.
Balance giving with receiving.
Alternate work with play, business with personal activities.
Balance tending to our spiritual needs with tending to our other needs.
Juggle responsibilities to others with responsibilities to ourselves.
Balance caring about others with caring about ourselves.
Whenever possible, let's be good to others, but be good to ourselves too.
Some of us have to make up for lost time.

Howzat for a start? :-)

(careful whatcha ask for, huh? LOL)

Mel said...

Oh......and I was kinda likin' :

Becoming responsible adults is no longer a matter of whether children hang up there pajamas or put dirty towels in the hamper, but whether they care about themselves and others --

Mel said...

NOT to mention:

Life is mostly froth and bubble, Two things stand like stone, Kindness in another's trouble, Courage in your own.

Aren't ya glad ya asked?

A woman needs a man like a fish needs a bicycle.

Dave said...

A man with a bicycle can bring the fish home for the woman to cook.

Sorrow said...

I fed your fish.
and am sending a long a hug...
you feel that?

Mel said...

Oh gosh....I have a whole BOOK of things WPIML has said to me over the course of years.
Off the top of my head cuz I could stand to remember them myself:

Since when does what you WANT to do have anything to do with what you NEED to do?

There's more than one way to look at things, kid.

You can analyze the **** out of water and break it down to all its components--THEN try to quench your thirst....g'head....

It matters to ME. YOU me....

Really....he could be such a mushbucket....

*rolling eyes*

Mel said...

Never turn you back on a hungry pig....

Now THAT I needed to hear, Malc.

Mel said...

What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson

(am I making you crazy yet? LOL)

We need to learn to set our course by the stars, not by every passing ship.


If some is good.... :-)

I'll sit on my hands now!! (well, I'll TRY anyway!!)

Mel said...


Just so you know--that last piece is on the framed poster by the breakfast table.
It's kinda important to me.

It's what I read to myself every morning.....
It's what I held on to when things were unraveling.


<-- done!!!

Well.....done for now!
