"The Law of Life"

Found in some old email:

Whatever you give away today
or think or say or do
will multiply about tenfold
and then return to you.
It may not come immediately,
nor from the obvious source,
but the LAW applies unfailingly
through some invisible force.
Whatever you feel about another,
be it love or hate or passion,
will surely bounce right back to you
in some clear or secret fashion.
If you speak about some person,
a word of praise of two,
soon tons of other people
will speak kind words to you.
Our thoughts are broadcasts of the soul, not the secrets of the brain.
Kind ones bring us happiness,
petty ones, untold pain.
Giving works as surely as
reflections in a mirror.
If hate you send, hate you'll get back,
but loving brings love nearer.
Remember, as you start this day,
and duty crowds you mind
that kindness comes so quickly back,
to those who first are kind!
Let that thought and this one
Direct you through each day....
The only things we ever keep
are the things we give away!

A Fridge Door for My Blog

Every mom I know has a refrigerator door. Usually they're covered in alphabet magnets, a message center of some kind, school or team calendars, recipes, lists, and kids' art. If something is hanging on the fridge door, someone probably considered it pretty important!

Mine at home is no exception, and probably my cyber-fridge door will prove to look just like it. Basically, it's a place to put my recipes, my ideas in progress, and "whatever" else strikes me as worthy of hanging on the fridge.

Unlike the fridge at home, my children's chore lists will NOT be hanging here!

What I'll probably include here, and I'm thinking of doing at home, is putting up a daily prayer intention. I've got that white board sitting there, with nothing but chores and shopping lists on it. Surely this is more important than chores. Plus, I'll be reminded of that intention each and every time I open the freezer to get Little Brother some more "ice cube water."
