My husband doesn’t get it!

We just got home from having dinner out. We didn’t have time to have dessert because I still have some work to do, so I head into the kitchen for a bowl of ice cream. And this is how it goes…

Tom: “I can’t believe you did that!”
Me: “Did what?”
Tom: “Got a bowl and spoon for yourself and never asked if I wanted any!”
Me: “Well… for the last two months you’ve been blaming me for making it hard for you to stick with your diet.”
Tom: “I’m allowed to change my mind.”
Me: “No… you’re not… you’re not a woman.”

Needless to say, my husband is refusing to speak to me at the moment…

Chick-Fil-A: Right Or Wrong?

Do I agree with what they’re doing?

Well here’s a headline for you… it doesn’t matter and why do you care?

Chick-Fil-A is a privately held company that’s free to operate their business on whatever set of core company values they choose as long as they’re not breaking any laws.

If you don’t like those values, then don’t eat there. If you admire them for their stance on marriage, feel free to enjoy three meals a day seven days a week until death do you part.

As individuals, we do *not* have the right to inflict damages or danger on those who disagree with us. My biggest fear is that large groups of people choosing to participate in a mass public showing of support on either side is nothing more than a recipe for disaster.

In My Good Death
by Dalia Shevin

I will find myself waist deep in high summer grass. The humming shock of the golden light. And I will hear them before I see them and know right away who is bounding across the field to meet me.

All my good dogs will come then, their wet noses bumping against my palms, their hot panting, their rough faithful tongues.

Their eyes young and shiny again. The wiry scruff of their fur, the unspeakable softness of their bellies, their velvet ears against my cheeks.

I will bend to them, my face covered with their kisses, my hands full of them. In the grass I will let them knock me down.

Steve Jobs: Taking Chances

Almost everything — all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure — these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.
