Words to the Wise

I just received word that my soon to be ex mother-in-law is in the hospital with internal bleeding and an infection. Which brings to mind the phrase: If you can't pray for anything nice, don't pray for anything at all.

By the way, for those of you who followed the link, how about THAT foreshadowing?

I got nothin' else.

Ditto to LS.

I much prefer the phrase, "If you can't say something nice, come sit by me."

I was glad for the link because I finally learned what ]* means. Was that it's first appearance on your blog?

Here's what my kids would say, with all the ironic detachment of which teenagers are capable:

Thanks for sharing!
Sharing is caring!

Sucky situation, but perhaps less sucky now than it would have been six months ago. Peace, friend.

I was wondering what ]* meant!

Anyway, your soon to be ex MIL must have been Satan's second ex wife. Since mine was his first.

Amazing how they can suck the light out of a room so very quickly, isn't it?

What I pray for mine is that she will find great fortune and set out on a lifetime grand tour of the world.
