Monday Motivation………..I have a RIGHT!
"The right to do something does not mean that doing it is right."
~ William Safire ~
 
I have often wondered where the saying, “Just do it and then ask for forgiveness later”, came from.  I always try doing the right thing and more often I do the right thing.  Then there are times that I let me get the best of me and because I can do something I will lower my head like a bull and plow right through something because I have a right to.It is during those times of doing something … (6 comments)

Stopping by to say Thank You……..Yesterday I happened to have a couple of hours that I wasn’t doing anything while waiting for the little lady to finish up with a doctor visit.
