The News

We hear it or read it every day. Thousands die in Quake; Gulf coast devastated by Hurricane; Backruptcy's are up; 2 24yo women die in head on crash; These are the headlines we see each day or hear on the news and this is how we start or end our day.
Why not " after a cloudy begining the sun broke thru for a beautiful afternoon", "Fall colors are starting to make the hills look like a Monet painting", "Laughter is recommended at least once a day for a healthy attitude."
My attitude sucks right now and yet I will go to work and try to make at least one person smile or laugh. This is how I try to maintain when I want to be curled up in a corner sobbing. There is no looking back there is only forward and to fix what is wrong as quickly as possible. The light hearted exterior only a mask put on for the world to see.
Hold out your hand in friendship and you will likely pull back a bloody stump. I think the world is on edge and we all need to hold hands and think happy thought for one hour maybe the horrors of this summer will be healed and world leaders will end the wars. Some would say the power of prayer, I think it is just the power of the human spirit to overcome and go on when things are at there worst. Though love and friendship we could conquer all the evil in the world with possitive thought. Everyone have possitive thoughts today. Thanks

Dear friend,and I do mean that, for you are one of the few who are able to read the emotion in the words not just the words themselves. Yes I am a little down and in need of encouragement. This you have provided and I am grateful more so than you will know.
I tend to center my attitude fishing and am usually out 15 to 20 times from iceout to iceup, so far this year I have fished 4 times and this month is the gourge for smallies on the river and we have manditory OT at work this month and doubt if I will have the chance or weather to get out, so not in the best mood. The offer still hold if you ever want to go fishing especially fly I your guy.
