You have the three of us today. Hey, it’s Rey!
No, this isn’t a post about Hemingway (Linda told me my title was similar to the title of one of his books). If you’ve been following our FB (The Triple Threat Investigation Agency) page, you know we’ve spent the week pretty much on the lanai. Oh, we’re doing some work—whatever’s doable—and drinking lots of iced tea, which I personally hate. Linda’s been busy creating new blends (keeps her busy, she says). The latest concoction—fusion, as my BFF calls it—is lavender-fennel. With sprigs of dill, no less. It’s . . . interesting (and let’s leave it at that).
Besides watching some mind-numbing TV—you know, I kinda wish I’d opted to become a game-show model (I like the clothes)—and over-grooming the kids, we’ve been reading a lot. Me Nancy Drew, Linda philosophy and English lit stuff (can you spell y-a-w-n?), and JJ everything and anything in the news. Who’d ever have guessed life could be put on lock-down hold?
Given the hope-related posts on FB all week, we thought we’d stay on a similar theme and each provide a current favorite quote—one that’s kinda inspiring us right now.
Linda: I have to go with Helen Keller’s “Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see a shadow.” Clear and clever. Never give into negativity or the dark side(s) of life.
JJ: Winston Churchill said it succinctly well. “The positive thinker sees the invisible, feels the intangible, and achieves the impossible.” Remaining optimistic, no matter what adversity faces us, is tantamount to overcoming [any and all] obstacles.
Me-Rey: As a part-time actress, I have to go with Milton Berle. “If opportunity doesn’t knock, build a door.” We—you, me—have the ability to make things happen. Don’t ever doubt that.
Continue to stay safe, be smart, and keep the faith. The sun does always rise . . . sometimes with breathtaking results.
Take care, dear friends.
