Thought we could try to change up the confessions a bit, and add some words of wisdom. Maybe just your motto to live by. Something that you have learned about life or people. Or just your favorite saying.

My favorite saying. "Before you critize someone walk a mile in their shoes. That way you are a mile away and have their shoes."

OK, if we're in the grandmother stuff ...


"They're more to be pitied than scolded" ... It's a great thought for taking the venom out of a potentially explosive situation.

"Question Everything". My personal mantra. Even when things are going well, never get so complacent that your eyes are shut, and when things are going poorly, never just let things defeat you. Question why things are, and what you can do to fix or prolong them.

Well I confess we had a great weekend at home. Daughter is doing great recovering from her surgery. It hasn't slowed her down at all. Had a very successful horse show at our farm for our 4H kids. And then today I took 10 horses to a local memorial day parade for the kids to ride in the parade and no one had any mishaps. And all my hay was put up with none getting rained on.

There are so many great words and phrases to go by, but the one that is sticking with me at the moment due to our current economic and government climate is to paraphrase Margret Thatcher..the problem with socialism is, that eventually you run out of other peoples money.

Hopefully that will not be removed ? as I see alot of my conservative viewpoints terminated.

"..the problem with socialism is, that eventually you run out of other peoples money."

Hmm, given the last few years of 100's of thousands of job losses, home forclosures, and bail-outs of major industries...I'd say that phrase could apply to capitalism as well.

Bailouts? not a capitalistic idea and which companies where bailout? highly regulated, union, government controlled companies?

My grandpa told me something a few years ago when I was agonizing over a situation and I said I dont know what to do.. He looked at me and said, "Honey, the truth of the matter is you always know the right thing to do; the hard part is doing it"
And he was so right. I mean we can fake ourselves out or be so upset and not think straight, but if you can drown out the situation or peoples opinions and listen to your heart, you will always find the answer. You might not like it, but I have found it to always be what was best for a situation.

Capitalism is fueled by OPM. Other People's Money. And often by OPL as well. Other People's Labor.
