have a fling!!!

"Tomorrow is the most important thing in life. Comes to us at midnight very clean. It's perfect when it arrives and it puts itself in our hands. It hopes we've learned something from yesterday." -John Wayne "Gratitude comes from the root word gratis, which means pleasing. The most obvious interpretation is that when you are pleased with something, you are grateful. A second interpretation - the more radical one, and therefore the one we prefer - is that when you are grateful, then you are pleased, not by the thing, but by the gratitude. In other words, in order to feel pleased, be grateful." "Have grateful flings." -John-Roger and Peter McWilliams Today in Bohemia, let's have a "grateful fling"... I love the word "fling", don't you? It sounds so joyful and full of motion and unfettered and has a hint of wild abandon... On with the "fling"... I am so grateful for: *warmth *family *beauty *flowers *soap bubbles *gum bubbles *imagination *hot showers *rain on the tin roof *sunshine on my skin *snow on purple mountain majesty *things glossamer and whispy *laughter of children and babies *desserts *tastes; like chocolate, coffee, oranges popcorn, honey, lemons, bananas... *musical variety *diversity *God's glory *the awesomeness of God's creation *the love of a good man What's listed on your "fling" today? I'd love to know... Spring blessings on you and yours...
