Everyone has problems. There is no problem so big, that whining won't make it worse. It's how you choose to deal with them. Some people choose to be whiners; some choose to be winners. Some choose to be victims: others choose to be victors.
The nice thing about the beach is being able to get the Santa Barbara newspaper. There is a small store here and someone has to drive 20 some miles of winding roads to get the newspaper to the store. I don't receive a newspaper at home. Too busy...too rural. But, I love reading the paper each morning here. I'd make a good retired person. :0) I love browsing the news and doing the puzzles. My Mom was a whiz at crossword puzzles. I'm not very good at them, but I like to try. I think I have only completed 3 maybe in my lifetime. But, what I am good at is Sudoku. My grandson who is much better than I am got me hooked doing them. I probably do 4 or so week. I'm not much of a TV watcher......never have been.
When at the beach you get to do a little, rather a lot of examining who you really are. I ran into the chaplain the other day while I was doing my first physical therapy for my herniated cervical spine. I was glad she stopped by, because I think she is the best thing about our hospital. I have no idea why she was passing by outpatient P.T. but I had a question about how one of my 20 yr. old patients was doing after surgery. Sure enough....Marg knew. As she left, she said " And why are you here?". I said, "I'm getting fitter. You told me I'm a hard nut." She winked at me and said," I like to think of you as a woman of strong endurance." I said, "I'll drink to that" which she replied, "Just not too much." :0)
