To educate yourself for the feeling of gratitude means to take nothing for granted, but to always seek out and value the kind that will stand behind the action. Nothing that is done for you is a matter of course. Everything originates in a will for the good, which is directed at you. Train yourself never to put off the word or action for the expression of gratitude. Albert Schweitzer

Day 191 - Sunrise on Melbourne
"Sunrise offered a very beautiful spectacle; the water was quite unruffled, but the motion communicated by the tides was so great that, although there was not a breath of air stirring, the sea heaved slowly with a grand and majestic motion."
After the week I had, I just needed a little time off. 4PM yesterday I ran screaming from the office, grabbed the man, the Pixie and the hamster and sped 80 MPH down the highway to my cousins house. Before I got the hamster loaded in the car I had my first on-call emergency. 2 more before we pulled out of the drive way, another on the 2.5 hour drive, 3 while in the bath tub this morning, and 4 more while typing this blog. So, I'm guessing time off is out of the question. *sighs*
Is all that going to get me down? Oh hell no. Not even the smoke alarm that went off in the middle of the night and twice while I was trying to take a nap in this spectacular tub. Despite all that I've managed to recharge the sharpie. Take that!
