Look carefully...at the seemingly small moments...in the constant shaping of souls.- Neal A.Maxwell

milestone
     As of today, it is official, at 5'8" I am the shortest member of my household.  13-year old couldn't be more proud.

 
Supercilious
     Last night I dreamed that I asked my cranial therapist if she would show me how to do self adjustments so I could reduce office visits.  She replied, "I could if you weren't so superstitious and supercilious."  "Superstitious?" I questioned.  "Well you did say you had a lucky number," was her reply.   "Supercilious?" I asked.  "Look it up," she responded.
    
     This morning I looked up supercilious.  Really?  Where did that even come from?  And, though I will admit to having some favorite numbers, I wouldn't really call them my lucky numbers.
compensated
     Almost 18-year old C spent the summer sanding, painting, hauling metal and any other odd job his building-owner boss asked of him.  The final week he spent helping roof two rentals in 100-degree heat.
     Today C and I went school shopping.  More than once he asked himself aloud, "Is this worth an hour on a roof?" to determine if an item was worth the asking price.  I was telling my husband this when we got home.  C overheard and said, "Yeah, I would think, 'If I were tossed this item after working on the roof would I feel adequately compensated?'  If not, I wouldn't buy it."
     A life lesson, in my opinion, definitely worth time on a roof.

Yesterday turns into today before we say good-bye.


What the future holds
     Family reunion with EVERYONE from my side of the family :)
     22-year old wanted a picture of himself standing next to my father.  Both are tall, thin and long-legged.  22-year old said it would be like a picture of him standing next to his future self.  He said he would add this quote from my dad:

          "I read in the paper about a 61-year old man who fell off a 
          ladder and I thought, 'What's a 61-year old doing on a
          ladder?' and then I realized I was on a ladder myself the
          other day and I'm 81."
