today i know what day it is...

yesterday i didn't...

 being entirely without fault or defect : flawless,  satisfying all requirements
 lacking in no essential detail : complete

sometimes i think it would be lovely to be perfect.   

especially since i am my own worst critic -- too hard on myself.  

but when i start berating myself for my most recently perceived failure and throw a pity party --  i remind myself of several things-- 

first ---  words from the wise:

"To err is human, to forgive divine." - Alexander Pope

"Have no fear of perfection - you'll never reach it." - Salvador Dali

"Have patience with all things, but chiefly have patience with yourself. Do not lose courage in considering your own imperfections but instantly set about remedying them - every day begin the task anew." - Saint Francis de Sales

second -- out of much imperfection comes the beauty of learning and growth (not to mention realizing a need for god), also the ability to connect with a wide range of people through various experiences -- and perseverance and determination.  --- maybe that might equate to:   imperfection = character development ---  and you can't really argue with the benefits of character development, right??

third -- if i were perfect i don't think i'd have as many interesting things to blog about...  

i guess that leaves us with an imperfect me.  ok.

useless information:

-jon has a thing for nail clippers -- he always needs to know where a pair is at

-lulu has a thing for little bunny foo foo and peter cottontail -- she's pretty sure they'd make a good lunch

-me -- i have a thing about my job.  i miss it.

-me#2 --  i got woke up three different times last night by crazy loud thunder and lightening -- which jon slept through.  

happening this afternoon:

i think i'll go cook something now...
