An exercise in patience!

Aaaaaarrrrrrgggg! My PC has been sitting at a well-known retail store that has a tech department. Do you really want to know how long? Since November 11. I took it in because they called me to follow up on some work they did over a little year ago, which never really got resolved. They found viruses. I have antivirus, but I guess those pesky creatures  knocked out my security and slipped in. What happened to  the original issue with the PC? They can’t figure it out!

I dropped off a letter last Saturday detailing how many times I’ve called the store  for the current situation and what happened last year. No response. I called on Tuesday and told the manager that if don’t hear from him by 10 PM that evening, I would send my letter to the CEO. He did call back before 10 PM with a somewhat favorable response. He promised to call with an update yesterday. He didn’t. He didn’t call today either!

I’m going to exercise a little more patience. I’ll wait. Or, maybe I won’t. Short post tonight. I’m using my iPad and I don’t like using it for blog posts.

Wednesday, November 13, 2013  is World Kindness Day. In honor of this special day, I’ve collected a few quotes to share with you. The counselor at my school shared this video clip with me and I want to pass it along.

That best portion of a man’s life, his little, nameless, unremembered acts of kindness and love.~ William Wordsworth

You cannot do a kindness too soon, for you never know how soon it will be too late. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Whether one believes in a religion or not, and whether one believes in rebirth or not, there isn’t anyone who doesn’t appreciate kindness and compassion.~Dalai Lama

Tenderness and kindness are not signs of weakness and despair, but manifestations of strength and resolution.~Kahlil Gibran

A kind word is like a spring day.~Russian Proverb

Wherever there is a human being, there is an opportunity for a kindness.~Seneca

Where is fingerprintwriting?

It has been several weeks since I came on my blog or check the blogs that I follow. I’ve been away too long. I’ve had a few ups and downs in my life – more than I expected. I shall not focus on the downs – life is made up of dual experiences. How can we truly appreciate the goodness and gift of each day if we do not have these dual experiences?

In the future, I will make my posts even if it is just two sentences. I have a lot of catching up to with the blogs I follow.

Here are two lovely photos of a very happy occasion…my nephew’s wedding on October 12th.
