I like the following quote. It fits my mood.
"To control your cow, give it a bigger pasture."
Today is the first day in a long while that I actually felt well. What a thrill!!
I am continuing on in the world of Lincoln, still enthralled with this peek into history, and grateful that I didn't live when mothers and children so often died in childbirth, and if they survived that, then, succumbed to disease. I see that we live lives of ease, in comparison. I know stress is an issue in our times, but I don't think it can compare to life in the 1800's. I don't know how many times I have now read of Lincoln's shoulders shaking, as he sobbed in despair over the death of someone he loved. We are given many chances now, and I am feeling grateful for that tonight.
