Just some thoughts...

Last year my sister gave me a daily calendar, mostly about sisters and family. Every day you tear off a piece of paper with a quote to get to the correct date.  And I've kept up with it almost all year.  Yes there are sometimes when I leave it on the same day for like a week, but never more than that.  Today I stumbled upon this little jewel....

"Learn the wisdom of compromise, for it is better to bend a little than to break."
Jane Wells

And the words are oh so true, so I wanted to share it with you.  I think it's important to learn to compromise, especially during the holidays.  And it seems like the holidays can be a time to get upset and make decisions to not do what you have done for the past 23 years because you are angry or hurt or just plain stubborn.  You see, in order to compromise with someone over a situation, it requires more thought.  Compromising doesn't allow for an impulse decision that you might not have thought all the way through.  So if you are put in a difficult situation this holiday season, remember this quote.  Chances are, you probably won't regret it.

A little deep for me, but it's all good. 

I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
