Rant alert, this post is a tad long since I missed yesterdays theme.
Yesterday, I wasn't feeling a theme but today I'm retroactively feeling that Thursdays should be thoughtful. So below is what I would have written yesterday if I were feeling it.
Mi madre', Yvonne Ottley, sent an email to me that seemed appropriate for Thoughtful Thursdays it has positive answers to our often negative minds. Since my mom knows that my mind tends to go to a darker more negative place, it was great of her to forward this chart to me. She really knows me. I love you mom and thanks for always encouraging me in your subtle and not so subtle ways. My mom is a lovely 72 and she has recently started blogging so please click on her name to visit her blog link encourage her and be encouraged.
