Don't afraid of the pain...

I guess I will just have to stop and jell for a while.
I am either having a monster allergy attack or have caught a bug.
Whatever it is, there's not a lot of pep in me today.

Instead of accomplishing any of the tasks which had been planned,
I am being lazy for the second day in a row.
...Time to reread some favorite works.

Today I'd like to share these beautiful words ...
Words to ponder from time to time.
They help one remember to be thankful for everything.

"The deeper that sorrow carves into your being, the more joy you can contain. Is not the cup that holds your wine the very cup that was burned in the potter's oven?

"And is not the lute that soothes your spirit, the very wood that was hollowed with knives?

"When you are joyous, look deep into your heart and you shall find it is only that which has given you sorrow that is giving you joy.

"When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight.

"Some of you say, "Joy is greater than sorrow," and others say, "Nay, sorrow is the greater."
"But I say unto you, they are inseparable."

---Kahlil Gibran � 'The Prophet'
