    19th Century teaching of Rabbi Bunim, who said that each of us should walk with a slip of paper in our left and right pockets.

  3. “Thank you, Natalie Shell!” – Doc Meek ………………………………………………………………………

There was a time in my life when I was over-focused on problems, complaints, and difficulties, and did not understand that I had many things for which to be grateful.

I needed to learn to take myself less seriously and make my own happiness. I am still working on that.:o

My wife Jeannette has mastered the art of being happy, even in adverse circumstances, long ago. I have a long ways to go to catch up with her. I may never catch up! 😮

I am grateful for my wife Jeannette.

Here’s to self-involvement in our own learning about how to smile at ourselves, and even laugh at ourselves . . .  gently. 😮

    Speaking of gratitude…I am in daily gratitude for a loving, honest and true companion and friend in my good husband. I am consistently amazed that we found each other and am daily thankful for the blessings of being married to such a trustworthy and knowledgeable man. All can have such a rewarding relationship when both partners put God first and their own selfish desires last.
