Making good Mondays is like making coffee -


The week is before us - like the coffee pot - waiting to brew. Making it good is a matter of choice, luck, creativity, patience and acceptance of the outcome.

Thank you very much, betmo.
Every day brings a fresh new sunrise; every decade can bring a new era. The year 2009 represents a brand new decade to me, and I think to millions of people around the world. Let us hope so, anyway.
Namaste, my good friend.

The Future Was Yesterday said...

I read every link in it's entirety. When done, I thought to myself; "I'm not the equal of any of these writers!" Thank you for the kind ego stroke.:)

I hope that in President Elect Obama, we can find "hope" and some change, to shut this sceptic up. I like being an optimist much better!:)

Future, I went back to find a comment at TPM Cafe, where I often have a dialogue. This one came from "TheraP," another retired therapist. It is about wanting to be an optimist. She poignantly wrote: "I'm just ready to trust our govt for a change. I really want to trust here. I want them to live up to my trust. I'm worn out from so many years of horrid people ruining the nation. I need a break to relax and have people step up to the plate and care about our society and our infrastruction - but especially the people."
