Because it cannot be bought, love is the rarest commodity in the world.
How can we get it, then? Where do we get the solutions to our problems?
In Albert Camus’ last university lecture, he put it beautifully:

"I believe...that it is awakened, revived, nourished by
millions of solitary individuals whose deeds and works every day
negate frontiers and the crudest implications of history. As a result,
there shines forth fleetingly the ever threatened truth that each and
every man, on the foundations of his own sufferings and joys,
builds for them all."
The solutions have to come from each of us, the very people
who need them. We all need love, so we all must give it.
This is the drive behind my efforts. I wish to spend my life serving
the people of our world, and to continually improve the way I serve it.

Lights & Ladybugs!

Lately my family seems to purposely walk through the house and turn every single light on! Why do we need a light on if we are not in the room? Or, if you are in one half of a big room, you don't need both halves of the room lit up! I epecially notice this when I go to bed. A few years ago I basically moved out of my room and onto a 19 inch thick air mattress in the basement. Oh yeah, its goooood. My computer is down there and so is the T.V. if i want to catch a Seinfeld episode before I nod off. The stairs come to the floor about 6 feet from my head, though; and the light that always seems to be on in the kitchen shines down on my face. Until a couple days ago I would lie down ready to close my eyes after a busy day, and there it is, the light again. I'd have to get out of my comfy position, climb the stairs, turn 1 or 2 lights off, descend the stairs, and snuggle back under the blankets again. Now, I check to see if it is on before I get in bed. Low and behold, I'd turn it off, hop in bed, and 3 minutes later someone would walk in and out and leave it on again!! I swear they do it just to spite me! lol My goodness.

Our laundry room is connected to the basement. We have weights and a washer and dryer in there along with paint, tools, the furnace, and water heater. Our cats' beds are also in the laundry room when it is too cold for them to be out at night. The room is closed off by a door, but there is an inch and a half gap between the bottom of the door and the floor. Somebody alllways leaves that light on too. You'd think they would at least consider that the cats want to sleep in the dark too, if not that reason, how about the fact that there is no need for the light to be on once you leave! A slim streak of light seems to find my eyes from under that door every single night lol. Oh boy it irritates me lol. And those are just the lights that affect me when i sleep. They leave the hall light on, the outside lights on...we live across the street from a farm!

And the ladybugs!! They're everywhere! The creep in every autumn! I had to flick one off of my alarm clock as i was setting it last night! lol I don't find them so irritating though. They're kind of funny, and they don't really bite. I just flick em and hear them tink off of something.

Anyway, I am a believer in learning from everything. So, now that I have vented, I will take this light thing and use it to become a more patient person. Sound good? I think so too. After all, if I can't get something good from it, what am I doing to myself? Probably just making myself angry and causing more stress. Right? Well, toodles!

Can you relate? Or are you the one leaving lights on at your house! :]
