Prayer Requests
@Offsides' youngest daughter as she battles a double eye infection AND double ear infection. Prayers also for his M as she handles things on the home front. Additionally, prayers for his truck that held a used diaper overnight.
@Hot Mic (Tribute)'s daughter for her continued recovery and praise that the new treatment is working significantly better.
3rd F Disclaimer
YHC shared his favorite Christmas film, It's a Wonderful Life. At the end, Guardian Angel Clarence Odbody delivers a note to George Bailey that reads: Remember no man is a failure who has friends. YHC shared his worst Jester which is quick to anger, short fuse, rage/wrath, grudge holding, etc. YHC fell victim to that Jester in recent weeks when he felt slighted/attacked by two HIM he highly respects and looks up to. Failed to seek first to understand before seeking to be understood. Once that anger is let out of the tube, can't recall it. YHC has been processing that moment and those emotions of negativity over the past several weeks and will continue to do so. Ultimate point being that George Bailey eventually failed to see the impact he had on the lives of others and took every trial, tribulation, or even slight misstep as a slight against him which is sort of selfish. Instead, these moments are affirmations of our strengths and proof we're on the right path, whether we realize it or not.
Go forth today and be a Bailey. Have impact on the lives around you. Do not dwell on the “What If's” of your life. Carry with you an unbridled sense of a joy and positivity. Step up when called upon by your friends, family, and community.
SYITG, Cosmo.
