…Did you have a splendid weekend?  I hope so.

…The other day I finished Anne Lamott's new book, "Help Thanks Wow."
Here are some of the bits from it that I liked best:

…“There are hundreds of ways to kneel and kiss the ground.”-- Rumi

…“And did you get what
you wanted from this life, even so?
I did.
And what did you want?
To call myself beloved, to feel myself
beloved on earth.” –Raymond Carver

…Below are all from Anne Lamott’s book, “Help Thanks Wow.”

-Imagination is part of the way we understand the world.

Three things I cannot change are the past, the truth, and you.

We learn through pain that some of the things we thought were castles turn out to be prisons.

If we are lucky, gratitude becomes a habit.

In the face of everything, we slowly come through.

I don’t believe it, but I know it is true.

Gratitude begins in our hearts and then dovetails into behavior.

When you are aware of all that has been given to you, in your lifetime and in the past few days, it is hard not to be humbled.

A good marriage is one in which each spouse secretly thinks he or she got the better deal.

God’s idea of a good time is to see us picking up litter.

“Wow” means we are not dulled to wonder.

When we are stunned to the place beyond words, we’re finally starting to get somewhere.

Everywhere you look, couples are falling in love.

Gorgeous, amazing things come into our lives when we are paying attention.  We just have to be open for business.

We get to keep starting over.

There really is only today.
