I am really honored to be asked to open a new discussion because the other one is getting full. It is true that there has been so much helpful and encouraging participation discussed that maybe we need another page, of course you can still use the other because I noticed a lot of friends replying back and forth. Thanks again for this great site,too. Claudia

Whatever course you decide upon,
there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong.
There are always difficulties arising
which tempt you to believe that your critics are right.
To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires courage.

Christ be with me, Christ be within me,
Christ behind me, Christ before me,
Christ beside me, Christ to win me,
Christ to comfort me, Christ above me,
Christ in quiet, Christ in danger
Christ in hearts of all that love me
Christ in mouth of friend and stranger.

"No matter how thin you slice bologna, you can always break a window with a brick."

It just so happens I have a brick that I carry with me in the car. The only problem is, I keep it in the trunk. Kinda hard to get to if I need to break a window with it. Been meaning to bring it in the apt. It is a brick from my old grade school they tore down several years ago. I'm just an old softie when it comes to some things. I wouldn't want to lose that brick by breaking out a window though!!! Of course, I live on the 7th floor and I'm afraid of heights, so why break the window out when I wouldn't be jumping out it anyway!!!
