Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one's definition of your life, but define yourself. Harvey S. Firestone

The people with whom you work reflect your own attitude. If you are suspicious, unfriendly and condescending, you will find these unlovely traits echoed all about you. But if you are on your best behavior, you will bring out the best in persons with whom you are going to spend most of your waking hours.

Some people get spiritual because they see the light and some people get spiritual because they feel the heat!

How do you know if you're truly a servant? See how you react the next time someone treats you like one.

From The Corner Of My Mind

* We left Monday evening and followed that cold front and rain halfway acros the US to the East. We stopped off in Monroe LA for the night and when we got up the temp was hovering around 33 degrees and it was raining.
* We watched the news and there was a winter storm warning posted all the way East of us across Alabama. I made a mad dash to Walkyworld to grab some snacks and and two blankets in case we got stranded on the road.
* Let me say here that we had a blanket with us but had driven up on a wreck the night before around Longview and had used it on one of the patients.
* So leaving Monroe headed East, we didn't go 5 miles and had already seen three bad wrecks. We pushed on carefully knowing we had to be in Georgia by 8am Wednesday morning. The temp hovered at 32-33 degrees but we never hit ice or snow. Just rain, and more rain. Torrential rains at times.
* In Montgomery it was 33 degrees. By the time we got to Colombus GA it was 76 and sunshine. Actually it was humid and hot on Wednesday. Thursday morning of the graduation it was raining and 40 degrees.
* All the way across Louisiana and Mississippi every creek and river was running full bank or out of bank. We never turned the wipers off till we were back in Alabama on the way home.
* I had never been to Talledega Motor Speedway, till now. We stopped by there and took pictures in the dark. And there was snow on the ground. 2-3 inches. It's hard for me to imagine snow at Talledega. Pictures to follow.
* It is currently 1:18am on Friday morning and I'm acting as co-pilot as W-spouse is in the cockpit and has full control of the IPod and has the cruise set on warp speed. We've decided to not stop, just push through. We're both ready to be home and see the grand babies and the dogs.
* We've been to Georgia to watch our son graduate from the US Army. I'm preparing a post later detailing the events.
* We are stopping for coffee and potty time.
* We should arrive at daybreak, see ya Around The Corner!

Congrats to your son!

Just be careful on the road and watch out for the other guy because he's usually an idiot.

Hoping y'all made it all the way home without an accident or any trouble on the road. Know you both are bone tired. Thanks for instructions last night to get my Netflix on tv. Give the babies & the dogs a hug & a kiss for me. Mo
