    Here's my positive for the day. It's a beautiful day here in South Arkansas. It's a little overcast, but in the 70s, and ultra comfortable for spending the day outside!

    Thank you Birdz. It was a long day and I was so tired when we finally got home. He thinks he is superman and can do anything, but he is realizing he is not 19 anymore.

    Birdz that's awesome!

    Here's my positive, I got my hair cut yesterday! I went from a shoulder length bob to a 'shorter than chin length' bob. I love it! With my old hair when I would wear a hat (ball cap or helmet) I looked like I had a mullet. NOT the look I was going for! LOL!
    I took some fuzzy cell phone pics.... I'll post a before and after pic.

    My hair is pulled back but you can see the length. This is with my youngest sister Sara. (BTW, I also just got my highlights and lowlights about a month ago. LOVE them!)


    New haircut (very fuzzy sorry)


    With helmet! (even fuzzier!)


    So that's my positive thoughts for the day!

    Yesterday I went out with a couple of riding buddies and had to borrow a horse , since "my" two horses were taken. Rode the Fresian at out barn. He is obese, so no saddle will fit him, so me, the almost 55 year old who never rides bareback , rode him for an hour and half on the trails. I did trot a little but did not canter. The Fresian is so clumsy and out of shape, he is huffing and puffing at a trot. But, I did it!

    Good for you! I love riding bareback! My ultimate goal would be to work cows while bareback, be able to stay on, and look good! Am I asking too much out of life? LOL!

    The Mayonnaise Jar

    When things in your life seem almost too much to handle, when 24 hours in a day is not enough, remember the mayonnaise jar and two cups of coffee.

    A professor stood before his philosophy class and had some items in front of him.

    When the class began, wordlessly, he picked up a very large and empty mayonnaise jar and fills it with golf balls.

    He then asked the students if the jar was full. They agreed that it was.

    The professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured it into the jar. He shook the jar lightly. The pebbles rolled into the open areas between the golf balls.

    He then asked the students again if the jar was full. They agreed it was.

    The professor next picked up a box of sand and poured it into the jar. Of course, the sand filled up everything else.

    He asked once more if the jar was full. The students responded with a unanimous “YES”.

    The professor then produced two cups of coffee from under the table and poured the entire contents into the jar, effectively filling the empty space between the sand. The students laughed.

    “Now,” said the professor, as the laughter subsided, “I want you to recognize that this jar represents your life. The golf balls are the important things - God, family,
    children, health, friends, and favorite passions. Things, that if everything else was lost and only they remained, your life would still be full. The pebbles are the things that matter like your job, house, and car. The sand is everything else -- the small stuff.” he said.

    “If you put the sand into the jar first,” he continued, “There is no room for the pebbles or the golf balls. The same goes for life. If you spend all your time and energy on the small stuff, you will never have room for the things that are
    important to you...” he told them.

    “So... pay attention to the things that are critical to your happiness. Worship with your family. Play with your children. Take your partner out to dinner. Spend time with good friends. There will always be time to clean the house and fix the dripping tap. Take care of the golf balls first -- the things that really matter. Set your priorities. The rest is just sand.”

    One of the students raised her hand and inquired what the coffee represented.

    The professor smiled and said, “I'm glad you asked. It just goes to show you that no matter how full your life may seem, there's always room for a couple of cups of coffee with a friend.”

    Please share this with other "Golf Balls"

    Stir crazy, that is a wonderfully appropriate story. Especially in a time where so much is going on, all of the time! Thanks for sharing.
