LOVE quote by Lao Tze

 
I love quotes by Lao Tze!!!
Did you know that he wrote the following quote?!
 
Give a man a fish,
you'll feed him for a day.
Teach a man to fish,
you'll feed him for a lifetime.
 
I think the reason why
I am still without a job
is because of Mother.
Mother and I have never been close.
She has always thought that
because I live in an apartment
I live a life of luxury
and have everything I need.
I think she is finally beginning to see
that my living as a tenant
keeps me at the mercy of the landlord. 
My being without a job for so long
has opened her eyes about me
and it has brought us
closer...
She has even started
to tell me:
I love you!
Wow!
and it only took 54 years!

I was unemployed for 5 months one time and know how stressful that can be for a single gal. Glad you are able to find a silver lining during this tough time.  Hang in there!

Good Morning Win,   I always say that THE LORD WORKS IN MYSTERIOUS WAYS...we never know where our blessings might come from or when our needs will be met, but we do know that there is one who knows all and we just have to wait  ( if possible with patience !!  only wish sometimes that is was patience that was waiting LOL )    Much Love  Sybil xx

It took me 50+ years to mend things with my mother.  We were never close at all; totally different people.  She could not accept that fact.  I think she has mellowed finally.  HUGS Chris
