Lessons Learned this Week

  1. No matter how many lemons you dig out of your iced tea and pile on the table, the waitress at Denny's is still going to bring you a filled glass with a lemon perched on top.

  2. I've crossed the entire width of New Mexico 5 times in the past 8 days (with a 6th trip tomorrow) . . . I discover something new each trip . . . and the beauty of New Mexico is reaffirmed each trip.

  3. While fuel prices have been steadily climbing, the situation is MUCH better than it was a year ago ($2.50 vs. $4.10).

  4. I ADORE my three daughters and absolutely LOVE spending time with them (a reinforcement of an earlier lesson).

  5. Nothing much beats a plate of spaghetti and a slice of pepperoni pizza at Fazoli's.

  6. I miss preaching for a small church (another reinforcement).
  7. Try on the shoes before you bring them home from the store.

  8. My music tastes keep evolving.

  9. God is really good! (Yet another reinforced lesson!)
  10. Finally, think before acting. And, acting on emotion (rage) rarely turns out positively. Thank you for the small voice that said "Stop!"
