After experiencing some computer, issues that I am still working on, I realized that I did not blog yesterday.  Consequently, Grandmother Musings was set to Elvis for two days.  I think he deserves some recognition, but his time is over with tonight.  Sorry Elvis, but now I have some recognitions of my own that I would like to share.  It seems that I am having a triple play of awards.

Stats Gone Wild

I am in shock! When I looked at my stats  this afternoon, it states that I have had 432 views for today.  This is amazing.  I have NEVER had that many views. The most views I have ever had were 167.  Upon further examination, I discovered that 372 views were on my HomePage/ Archives.

Hmmmm, I am wondering, who is looking at my pages?  I have heard that people who have been Freshly Pressed will suddenly have a massive amount of views.  So with hope in my heart, I went and snooped at the Freshly Pressed page to see if that was the reason for so many views.  NOPE!

So what is it? Is WordPress having stat issues?  I signed out of my account, turned off my computer, and went back and looked later.  I still have over 400 views!   My only conclusion is that someone is looking at Grandmother Wisdom.  All I can say is thank you so very much and please keep looking! You have made my day!!  If you want to make a comment or two, please feel free.

You are welcome here.

Thank you!

RECEIVE AND PASS IT ON

Posted on

  Should you find it hard to get to sleep tonight, just remember the homeless family who has no bed to lie in.  Should you find yourself stuck in traffic, don’t be angry.  There are people in this world for whom driving is an unheard-of privilege.  Should you have a bad day at work, think of the man who has been out of work for the last year.  Should you despair over a relationship gone wrong, think of the person who has never known what it’s like to love and be loved.  Should you grieve the passing of another vacation, think of the woman in dire straits, working twelve hours a day, seven days a week, to feed her family.  Should you run out of gas, think of the paraplegic who would love the opportunity to take that walk to the service station.  Should you notice a gray hair in the mirror, think of the cancer patient in chemotherapy who wishes she had hair to examine.  Should you find yourself at a loss and pondering, “What is my purpose in life?” be thankful.  There are those who didn’t live long enough to get that opportunity.  Should you find yourself the victim of other people’s bitterness, ignorance, smallness, or insecurities, remember, this also happened to Jesus.

      Today there may be peace within.  May you trust God that you are exactly where you are meant to be.  May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith.  Let this presence settle into your bones and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, and bask in the sun.  May you use those gifts that you have received and pass on the love that has been given to you.  May you accept that you are a child of God.
