Dying Man’s Daily Journal – Two Ways to look at things.


A positive attitude is everything. In virtually every situation there are 2 ways of looking at things. One more positive, one more negative. Well I am being put to the test on that one today.

Took the car into the garage today for a simple oil change. That oil change is turning out to be really expensive over $500.00. Turns out while in the garage the ignition seize, key just won’t turn in the lock,hence obviously the car won’t start. Require a new ignition to be installed. To be clear I trust the garage completely. I am sure it was merely a coincidence that it happened while there.

OK, it hurts getting an unexpected bill for $500.00, but I am a lucky man. The igition is a mechanical part that can wear out just as can any part. I would still prefer it had not happened, but think of it. If it had to happen what better place could there have been for it to. Right in the exact spot where they can fix it. I am a lucky man

    How true can this message be Bill, always take the positive with everything.

    Juanita, my prayers are sent for Maxine. May her operation go as planned and her recovery be smooth. I’ve sent out a prayer to Arch Angel Rapheal, angel of healing, to watch and protect her.
