Have a great day,....ciao emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I agree you need a good sense of humor to keep your sanity.
I know I've learned a lot, I just wish I would quit learning the same things over and over and over.....
Hahaha

Have a Sparkly day!

  Hi Sheryl.........
You and I have always agreed that our sense of humor is what has saved us. I work daily at resilience and am getting much better at it.

I emoticon Tilapia, but please make sure that it is NOT from China.

Take care........

    That was an excellent article. I liked the focusing on little positive things and having more than one plan to reject rejection. Being resilient is an excellent train for success.

Thanks for sharing.

    LOL . . . had to laugh at the comment about feeling guilty about the bread crumbs, not the oil and butter. That's me too!

Hey, at least canola oil is healthy oil.

HUGS Thanks for the link.
