My plan is to start cleaning today for Thanksgiving. If I do a little each day, it won't seem so much. I used to do it all in one day... never stopping until it was done... but realize that I can't do this anymore. And the truth is, I really like to do it. But I know that if I push too hard, I'll end up with a migraine and then I'll lose even more time. So... easy does it.
And I really must say something about what happened in Paris... but what to say about something so horrific that it defies words? Any violence done to innocents in the 'name of God' is beyond my power to understand. I want to say that these actions don't further their cause... unless their cause is to create hate (as hate tends to beget hate). I'm not a religious person, but do believe that thoughts and prayers are powerful - and that 'love is powerful' - more powerful than hate. In my opinion terrorist attacks only bring the victims and compassionate people (and all people who value human life) together to stand more fiercely united against the hate (which must exist in the heart of Terrorists?)
