Here I sits and ponder on what to write about. I want to write something deep and spiritual like some of the others do, but after mowing the yard, doing laundry, cleaning up after five orphaned cats in my laundry room, and having kitty litter stick to the bottom of my feet, I don’t know if I can get to deep and spiritual on this Monday.

So . . . . . . . .

I think I’ll tell a story but nothing is coming. I don’t have cute little toddlers or preschoolers anymore to spawn inspirational stories from, so I’ll go vacuum the kitchen and living room and see if something comes to me.

Well, that’s done. Now what? I could do a movie review.

On Friday I saw The Proposal with Sandra Bullock and some cute guy. I love Sandra Bullock. She is such a great actress. The movie is a romantic comedy. It was hilarious. It also made me cry. Sandra Bullock is a high-powered editor at a NY publishing house. Everyone in the office is terrified of her. And for good reason. She would just as soon fire you than let you get ahead of her. Well she is going to be deported back to Canada. Not so far but she can’t work for a U.S. company for a year. Well she can’t have that, so she says she is engaged to her assistant. The poor guy is dazed. He looks like he’s been hit over the head with a 2×4. He agrees because she threatens to fire him and make it impossible to work in the writing/editing world again. So they go to Alaska for Gammy’s 90th birthday and to tell his parents about the engagement. It’s hilarious. The whole thing with the dog and her cell phone cracked me up. One of my favorite things was Betty White. I’ve always loved her. She was great too.

Okay that’s done. I know I’ll ask my daughter for inspiration or words of wisdom from the POV of a 17-year-old girl.

“Fear can either hold you back or drive you forward. The choice is yours.” Jessi Davis.

How did she get so smart? I wasn’t that smart at her age. I think the fear was holding me back at 17. I don’t know that I can do any better than that. I do have one other fear quote.

“Feel the fear and do it anyway.” Jack Canfield.

I am trying to live both of these fear quotes. The Lord did not give us a spirit of timidity. There will be fear, but don’t let it stop you.
