Two Thoughts

The last couple of days I've had two recurring thoughts that just won't go away.

'God grant me the ability to accept the things I can't change, the courage to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference.'

That and I once heard that if all you have in your toolbox is a hammer, everything looks like a nail. Well, right at the moment I feel like I *am* a hammer.

And my entire world is made up of nails.

mmc - The thought 'I am a hammer'is so suggestive ... Instead of thinking that maybe you are overworked, emotionally stretched -which I don't doubt you must be - because all you see around you are nails, we could turn this thought around and say 'how lucky I am to be a hammer, to be the necessary tool to drive the nails in and out of sight, like a knight in shinning hammer :)!!!
Whatever it is it too shall pass.

That was a beautiful thought. If only the hammer wasn't feeling broken ;-0
Thank you.

And I was just dying to get hammered.....let's have a drink at our fav watering hole, K?

Yes, doorkeeper, what a great idea! A drink at our favourite watering-hole,MMC will take the hammer I will have fixed (with a shot of vodka)and you can get yourself hammered while I sit and sip in lady-like fashion.
We better watch out though 'cause Santa Claus is coming to town!
