Great day for the Irish !
Behind the Tivoli theater there is a car park and on the walls there is some fantastic Graffiti It is no accident that the college of art and design is across the road.
There was a line I read in a book a while back.
"When the pupil is ready to learn, then the master will appear"
I do look on the bright side of things and when he came he told me something which I will pass on to you now.
His father had had a heart attack and all his sisters were wrapping him up in cotton wool and keeping him inside doing nothing except watching television. He told his dad that he had a choice to live a good and normal life or to become an victim of his heart attack.
"Today you are in much better health than before your heart attack".
So he had the choice to live like a normal person or to curl up and die at home.
So his dad decided to come over and helped his son hang a back door and after that they went for a good walk with the dog. His life has turned around again because he has decided to live his life instead of just dying at home.
He then told me that this downturn in the economy will pass.
But perhaps it will give us something that is very valuable while it is here and that is time to spend with our families, time to fix all those things which are broken, time to cut the grass and empty out the garage. In short it is now time to tackle the jobs which have been waiting to be done and take back your life.
I do indeed have a list and the work is now in motion,as the list gets shorter you feel that your efforts have been put to good use and you feel better about yourself.
The last thing he told me was All THIS WAS NOT YOUR FAULT AND YOU CANNOT FIX IT,MORE THAN ANYTHING YOU MUST NOT LOOSE HOPE.
YOU OWE THAT TO YOURSELF.
THINGS WILL GET BETTER.
THE WORST THING YOU COULD DO IS TO RELINQUISH HOPE FOR THE FUTURE,
ALL THIS WILL PASS.
Then he paid me and got out. So the apple trees will get pruned, the lawns cut, the gutter cleaned and fixed. The list is long and includes do my income tax
Just today my car is in getting touched up for the NCT and licence renewal.
I can't find the log book or the paper licence so there will be a big hunt on until they are found. I really don't know why you have to bring the papers in as everything is on computer anyhow.
(St.Anthony is a great saint for finding things)
So now I have 36 hours off to experience other things.
Cheltinham would be great1.
Talking about saints!
A certain Polish Pope had St. Patrick removed from the ranking at one time. But for once the Pope was wrong and we will celebrate again. Look here to see what's happening.
