  1. LOL! Wait….was there supposed to be a plan?

    Love that Tolkien quote, “It does not do to leave a live dragon out of your calculations, if you live near him.” Precisely. The plan is simply to not get eaten by a dragon. So far I’m winning. 🙂

    We’ve had a rough go of it this year but hey, we are still putting one foot (albeit broken) in front of the other, so that’s something! Always reading, always writing, always learning. 🙂

    I am no mouse in no snake’s belly! 😂 Maybe a bear in a cave…but that’s about it 😉

    Sometimes I wish we could peek at God’s master plan for our lives. Great quotes…should the Burns quote read: “of mice and men”?

    Planning around dragons is sound advice.

  8. What an interesting take on “where are you”. I like to be able to be where I am as opposed to “where should I be”. Planning could be over-rated if you never meet your goal.

  9. I really liked this one: “When things don’t go according to plan, plan according to how things go.” Words to live by!
