Achieving a Grand Dream

"You will achieve grand dreams, a day at a time, so set goals for each daynot long and difficult projects, but chores that will take you, step by step, toward your rainbow.

Write them down, if you must, but limit your list so that you won't have to drag today's undone matters into tomorrow. Remember that you cannot build your pyramid in twenty-four hours. Be patient.

Never allow your day to become so cluttered that you neglect your most important goalto do the best you can, enjoy this day, and rest satisfied with what you have accomplished."

~ Og Mandino (1923 - 1996)

Hi Gaynell. Just want to peep in and show some love. Been on the grind as of late. My funds have gotten dangerously low...I took a trip to upstate N.Y. for the fall foliage...went way over budget (mustv been bewitched by all those trees ablaze) but I loved every minute of it. Been getting myself back into the black. Well I will be reading and reviewing once I can go back to lounging around the house in my robe again...oh well...Much love!

Mychel Bell is rightfully released as a juvi should be. Your pettition wwas a success. I congratulate you for tireless efforts in this just cause. The kid has a rap sheet long as my arm, but his imprisonment was indeed unjust. Great work!. =)

Graynell, I am having difficulty navigating this new format. There are still some bugs in the system. Gonna chill in the interface till they get the site where it should be. May not hear from me until that time. Much love.
