Knight in Smiling Armor

A   L   O   H   A !
" Anyone 
can criticize. 
It takes a true believer 
to be compassionate.
 No greater burden 
can be borne by 
an individual
 than to know 
no one 
cares 
or understands.”
                                  Arthur H. Stainback 








 "Every day 
of your life 
is a page
 of your history." 
                    Arabian Proverb








 " A moment 
of self-compassion 
can change
 your entire day. -







 - A string 
of such moments
 can change the 
course of your life.”
              Christopher Germer

[///]

Let me be 
your knight in smiling armor:
Today I have a fun idea 
for you.

If you are a blogger,
or otherwise share
your photos on the web,
use Google Image search 
to do a search
of YOUR own blog
or name!

Remember when. . . ?
What were you thinking?!

I'll go back
to solving the world's problems
tomorrow.

Now go have Summer
F U N!

                Fondly, cloudia

I love the expression on the dog's face Cloudia - in such circumstances I always wish I could make the dog understand that it is for its own good.

When I googled my name only one photo of mine popped up. There were more, maybe three or four of my daughter. I'm sure it's because I put a web block on my blog since my son was so concerned about the privacy issue. It does make it harder for people to find me but this way, only my blog family know where I am.
