"Think you can't change the world? Too late, you already have. It was changed for the better the minute you were born. There are more people than you can imagine who will never be the same because they came in contact with you, if only for a fleeting moment." ~Gail Purcell

More Thoughts to Ponder

Everything happens for a reason......

"I know God will not give me anything I can't handle."   ~Mother Teresa

And I am trying to keep a positive outlook..... 

“It is easier to love humanity as a whole than to love one's neighbor”~ Eric Hoffer 

But what do you do when you have a jerk for a neighbor.....?

"A bad neighbor is a misfortune, as much as a good one is a great blessing." ~Hesiod

What if he is acting the bully and you are at your wits' end?

Bullies are always cowards at heart 
and may be credited with a pretty safe instinct in scenting their prey."
~ Anna Julia Cooper

I am breathing deep, meditating on patience and trying to envision a positive outcome.
"Patience is a necessary ingredient of genius."
~Benjamin Disraeli

But I think in the long run this is going to cost me in both peace of mind and my pocketbook. So I am praying for divine assistance and would appreciate all the good will and positive thoughts you can send my way to get me through this (hopefully) minor bump in my road.....

When I really need help I turn to Prayer
