I thought this is very appropriate for what is going on here, considering posts and references have been lost for the last 1 1/2 years. This is very irritating to me. Also, the fact that I just got out of the hospital. I got sick over this!

Today's Thought

SUNDAY , JUNE 12, 2005

You are reading from the book Today's Gift.

The more a diamond is cut, the more it sparkles.
--Anonymous

There is something of value to be found even in the worst of things. Consider the oyster. When a grain of sand penetrates an oyster's shell, it irritates the oyster, making it uncomfortable. The oyster relieves the pain by coating the sand with a soothing liquid. When this liquid hardens, a pearl is formed. The very process that healed the oyster creates a precious jewel for others to cherish and admire.

The way in which we deal with our own frustrations--painful though they may be--can make a difference. Pearls can be formed from our experiences, making us wiser and stronger, or grains of sand--anger, bitterness, resentment--can remain imbedded inside us. The choice is ours.

How can I turn my irritations into pearls today?

Jimi, you are precious, even without the "necklace", silly. :-[
So you drew attention to an old post that has not been read in awhile. I like that! ;) Later, D
