From a Dud to a Diamond — 8 Comments

  1. Perfect way to “make lemonade out of lemons”. I rarely go to the movies any more for that very reason. Not many pass my “acceptable” test. 🙂
    My favorite thing to do is walk in the redwoods and talk to people from all over the country and often the world. Today it was people from PA, WI, MI, AZ, WA and Denmark. Interesting conversation is the best way to spend an afternoon. Love your
    writings as usual. Karen.

    • Thank you, Etta Mae. I really like your way of passing an afternoon. You brought smiles to others and made some new friends.

  2. So good, Karen. What a reminder that we have what I call, “Cadillac problems” and if we just remember that, the times we DO have with each other are all gifts. Great job on turning it around for both of you!

  3. I agree 100%. Several years ago I was vacuuming all rooms in my house and I kept telling myself I did not want to vacuum that morning, and I sure felt like complaining. All at once I thought: “okay, Margaret, change your attitude, express more gratitude”. I did! I started by thanking God I had a house to clean, a new sweeper to use and the health to do it! I shared this thought with the leader of an older group of women at the church and she liked it so well she asked permission to use it as their motto!! They did.
    You and your special friend sound like one I had during my youth and even thru our married life. ( our husbands put up with us and our giggling) We had fun just “doing nothing” just as long as we were together.
    Love today’s theme: A Dud to a Diamond! Thanks. Love and happy movie going, Margaret

    • Thanks, Margaret. I’m glad you had a special friend too–one whose company you enjoyed no matter what.
