♫ Just a quote and a picture. And a few words too.

"We can love and care for others but we cannot possess our children, lovers, family or friends. We can assist them, pray for them and wish them well, yet in the end their happiness and suffering depend on their thoughts and actions, not on our wishes.”
Jack Kornfield

I posted that on Facebook today, so apologies, if you're feeling like I'm being redundant. I don't think it's completely unhealthy to read over that again and again and again though. We only have so much control over what happens. You work with what life gives you, and hope for the best for the rest of it.

And...because I'm pretty sure the world can't live without another picture of these cowgirl cheeks, learning from a young age to ride out whatever life hands you:

Yours Truly,

Is that your little girl?! Oh my goodness. She is adorable! Makes my heart melt and makes me send up a guilty prayer for a baby girl this time around!
So, does little boys who pee all over your new hardwood floors count as things that are out of your control? It sure feels that way!
And again, I must say, what a great pic. I love little kid cowboy and cow girls so cute!
