"Worrying does not empty tomorrow of its troubles . . . . it empties today of its strength." Corrie Ten Boom [Spark featured quote; August 22, 2010] I heard Corrie Ten Boom speak in the late 1960's. I had forgotten how inspiring she was.

    Linda - you are right...another baby boomer here. Lots of Linda's in my classes in school also. I named my daughter Lauren thinking it was a beautiful name. Little did I know that there would also be thousands of Laurens as well. emoticon

    DH wholesales tile (and marble and granite and slate), but has never worked for a company which manufactured tile. He's taken a good many salespeople to manufacturing facilities though. Like yours, he can pretty much tell whose tile it is when he enters a space, be it a store or restaurant. When we visit a new restaurant, he always checks out the bathrooms to see what they chose to install. Of course, the first place he looks is the wall, then the floor. In his large shower downstairs, he has five different hard surfaces, including granite, field tile and glass decos. I call it "the showroom delight." Strangely, I suppose, I will not allow tile on my kitchen floor. Too hard on the back and dangerous to any glass that might fall.

    I had looked up Culver's after I wrote that comment. Apparently, Ohio is not the midwest part of their midwest.
    On our trip south to Georgia for the reunion of my father's side of the family cousins, we stopped at a Fuddrucker's burger joint. DH had always liked their burgers and shakes. Turns out the guy at the counter is originally from the next town over from ours where our son lives and where our church is. My husband rarely walks into any place, much less a national chain, that he isn't eyeing their tile and wondering who their supplier is. Wonder of wonders! Fuddrucker's has their offices in Cleveland, Ohio, where my husband's firm is located. We may be getting a new nationwide customer! (Can you tell I don't doubt my DH's sales ability?)

    When you replace "Why is this happening to me."? to "What is this trying to teach me?" Everything shifts.
