GRATEFUL GIRL'S THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
I remember when I was eight years old and decided that I'd like to audition for the school talent show on a whim.
I thought my impersonation of then President Jimmy Carter was spot on; complete with toothy grin and peanut butter endorsement. The kids were laughin'...I was killin' it until some like future Metropolitan Opera star sang Ave Maria in Latin, maybe? Whatevs.
I just KNEW I'd have won the contest had this operatic songbird not come along and totally obliterated my lead. Crud. I was really, really upset when she beat me because I was sure right up until the thunderous applause after she sang, that I was going to win. As I heard the cheering crowd and realized defeat was imminent, I was super miffed. For like, a half-hour. I think my Mom got me a Peanut Buster Parfait from Dairy Queen or something and I was fine.
The point is, I competed, I lost and I moved on. I understood, even at age eight, that sometimes you win and sometimes you don't but it's really bad form to keep complaining about the winner; especially for more than one half of one year.
Hillary, for the love of God, none of us ever expected Donald Trump to be President of these United States, truly. BUT HE IS. HE WON. IT IS OVER. Please, please stop embarrassing yourself and stirring up crap. Yes, at one point you were in the lead but really, at this point, what difference does it make? #yeahiwentthere
I know you two aren't always on the best terms but maybe Bill could grab you a Blizzard or something to cheer you up? Or perhaps y'all could focus on something else -- like, I don't know, take the grand-baby for an extended vacation to Disney World or Universal or Lego Land ... or maybe Mars?
Jn 10:14 R. Alleluia, alleluia. I am the good shepherd, says the Lord; I know my sheep, and mine know me. R. Alleluia, alleluia. Gospel Jn 10:11-18 Jesus said: "I am the good shepherd. A good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep. A hired man, who is not a shepherd and whose sheep are not his own, sees a wolf coming and leaves the sheep and runs away, and the wolf catches and scatters them. This is because he works for pay and has no concern for the sheep. I am the good shepherd, and I know mine and mine know me, just as the Father knows me and I know the Father; and I will lay down my life for the sheep. I have other sheep that do not belong to this fold. These also I must lead, and they will hear my voice, and there will be one flock, one shepherd. PHOTO:
