Tuesday November 28th~

Always give without remembering
 and always receive without forgetting...

 A beautiful day awaits us, at least that's how I will look at it.
  Can be gloomy, raining, but at the end of the day I woke up and 
I have much to be grateful for.  As I say often, I do not have
 everything I want, I I do have everything I need.

Arvid and I are still unpacking the last of the boxes we brought
 from Branson.  So far we have donated many boxes filled with clothes,
 kitchen stuff, linens and randomness items.  After working all day it's always
 a pleasure to go out for a walk.  Downtown is looking really beautiful.

 Goodwill is happy, and so are we.  I have donated many 
purses/handbags I have had throughout the years, took me a while
 to finally give them up.  Some were hardly used.  I figure someone 
else will love them and make better use of them than I was.

Arvid always says to me, "why don't you put your handbags
 up for sale?  You can make some good money."  The way
 I see it is I paid quite a bit for them; I won't get that back,
 but if I donate it someone else can then also enjoy it without 
having to pay premium for it."  Makes me feel good.

The temperatures are dropping for us in Florid it's
 going to be very cold.  At the same time the sun is shining
 brightly and Sniff never misses a chance to bask in it.

It’s easier to take than to give. It’s nobler 
to give than to take. The thrill of taking lasts a day. 
The thrill of giving lasts a lifetime...
