  4. “Bad mood” doesn’t really describe how I’ve been feeling lately. I don’t even like myself right now. I should warn people by putting a DO NOT DISTURB note on my office door. You know when you’re in a bad mood and people try to get you to smile with a bad joke or corny statement? You end up smiling — and then want to say, “Go, and leave me alone.” I spoke to a tow lady friend yesterday. I told her about how crabby I’ve been and she said something must be going around because she felt the same way. We decided stress didn’t have anything to do with it — yeah right. We also decided the full harvest moon was really the problem. When I go home from the shop I drive west and see the most beautiful sunsets — full of magnificent oranges, pinks and purples. It’s hard to stay in a bad mood when the sky is like a big, beautiful painting. Experiencing this gift is not only witnessing something wonderful, it’s a reality check telling me to let it go.

  13. The word “trust” came up in a conversation the other day. The person I was talking to said everything in life is held together with trust. While I agree, I would also add “love.” What comes to your mind when you think of trust? For me, it would mean that I have faith and confidence that someone is dependable and I firmly believe they are reliable. Trust, I believe, is the cornerstone in any relationship. My daughter took my 16-month-old granddaughter up the giant slide at the state fair this summer. My daughter put my granddaughter down while she put the burlap bag on the slide. She then sat down on the bag and I could see my granddaughter watching her and probably thinking, “What you doing momma?” Then my daughter held out her arms to my granddaughter, my granddaughter trustingly put her arms out and sat on my daughter’s lap, and down they went. I was a little concerned. I thought my granddaughter would be afraid, and was probably crying as she went down. But to my amazement, at the end of the ride, she got up with a big smile and said, “more, more.” To me, that was a sure sign of trust. Think about the many people and things you put your trust in every day. For example, you trust the towing equipment you use is reliable, and will do whatever job you’re on. Trust is knowing things will get done, and when trust is broken or challenged it’s hard to get it back. Start with trusting in yourself — have faith in your abilities, be dependable and reliable, be the person where there is no doubt that someone can depend on you no matter what.
