Remembering Our Worth

While going through past posts, I came across this one discussing the importance of remembering our worth. This is especially written for the women among us.  While dealing with illness, tkr recuperation, or other difficult situations, it is easy to forget how worthy we are. Enjoy…

The One Flaw In Women

By the time the Lord made woman,
He was into his 20th day of working overtime.
An angel appeared and said,
‘Why are you spending so much time on this one?’
And the Lord answered, ‘Have you seen my spec sheet on her?

She has to be completely washable, but not plastic,

and able to run on diet coke and leftovers.

She must have a lap that can hold four children at one time,
have a kiss that can cure anything from a scraped knee to a broken heart
-and she will do everything with only two hands.’

Healing with Humor

We all know the importance of maintaining a positive attitude throughout the tkr (or any) recuperation process. A dose of laughter everyday never hurt anyone. So, seeing that September is my birthday month, I thought I’d pass along some quotes I’ve received from friends. Feel free to use them as you wish..Enjoy!!

Today is International Very Good Looking, Damn Smart Woman’s Day, so please send this message to someone you think fits this description. Please do not send it back to me as I have already received it from a Very Good Looking, Damn Smart Woman! And remember this motto to live by: Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, wine in the other, totally worn out and screaming ‘WOOO HOOOOO what a ride!’

Michael Jackson quotes

In a world filled with anger, we must still dare to comfort. In a world filled with despair, we must still dare to dream.

If you enter this world knowing U are loved & U leave this world knowing the same, theneverything that happens in between can be dealt with.

My goal in life is to give to the world what I was lucky to receive: the ecstasy of divine union through my music and my dance.
