Bullet Points the day after Thanksgiving 2011

My brilliant husband said this today (or something close to it):  a better approach to enjoying any relationship, especially marriage, would be to “let it work,” rather than to  “make it work.”  I love that!

I generally say no before I say yes. 

Today we are between Thanksgivings.  Yesterday was his family; tomorrow is my family.  And believe it or not, really, really great folks come to both!  Lucky me.

So UT and the Aggies are getting a divorce after all these years of squabbling.  I think the UT band showed us the absolute best way to bring closure to any divorce:  thank the other party from your heart, and move on.

When my 90-year-old mom decides to cross over the divide, I will lose one of the most amazing teachers I have known.  If you like anything about me, you should send her a thank you note.

Here is what’s true for me today:  I crave and fear change.  I stir things up and pray for peace.  I push when I should wait.  I wait when I should push through.  I contradict myself almost daily.  I think  Life is fascinating.

  1. I am thankful for a friend who tries harder than anyone I've ever known to understand Truth and speak It with gusto. You are a treasure to me.
