Not a problem! Good reminder. I think all can benefit from prayer or some meditation and some days for me it's just "dear God, get me through this before and give me the grace to rise above before I clobber someone or gouge my eyes out."
I agree! Some days are more trying than others.
Breath and take one day at a time. That's what I try to do.
Otherwise, it can be overwhelming.
I enjoy your posts!=~}

For the Sandra Fluke wannabe skank:

Why is 'Duck Dynasty' so popular?
Jennifer A. Marshall September 08, 2013

.... the story of a family whose earlier chapters weren't so "happy, happy, happy" - as Phil likes to refer to life now. The catchphrase supplies the title of his autobiographical book. In it, Phil recounts a miserable episode early in his marriage to "Miss Kay" when his drinking and all-night partying almost ruined the lives of the whole family.

Running a dilapidated bar didn't help, and things only got worse when Phil assaulted his landlords in a dispute about the lease. The low point came after Phil kicked out Kay and their three sons at the time. Kay moved the boys into an apartment that a church helped pay for. She put everything in her maiden name, fearing for their safety. Phil showed up a few months later, broken by the meaninglessness of life without his family. Kay, who had become a Christian before the separation, insisted that getting right with God was essential to Phil's getting back on track. Phil met with her pastor. Convinced and convicted, he was baptized.

... The wild popularity of Duck Dynasty doesn't seem to have changed the Robertsons much. They're still most comfortable outdoors hunting or fishing or blowing up stuff in West Monroe, La., affectionate toward one another, and open about their Christian faith.

Nearly every episode ends with the extended family in prayer around the dinner table. Speaking around the country and to media, family members are evangelistic and candid about how their faith shapes their lives.

For one thing, they're serious about marriage.

"One of the great tragedies I see is people not putting every effort into the foundation of their marriage," Miss Kay writes. "My grandmother told me that it's one man and one woman for life and that your marriage is worth fighting for."

She would know - and it showed in the poignant fourth-season opener. It featured a wedding ceremony for Phil and Kay, a surprise arranged by their daughters-in-law on their 49th anniversary. They'd never had a wedding, only a visit to the justice of the peace. This time eldest son Alan, a pastor, officiated.

"We've been through some good times and some hard times," Kay recalls. "I loved you when we were poor, and you were not so nice."

The Robertsons also are committed to sexual abstinence before marriage. On one episode, Phil accompanies a grandson and the boy's girlfriend on a date (in Grandpa's boat) and has a talk about it.

They're pro-life. In his book, Phil rues the fact that there seem to be more federal rules protecting ducks than unborn children.

They're entrepreneurs, proponents of the right to bear arms and uninhibited by political correctness.

The Robertsons are pretty much the profile of Americans who "cling to guns or religion," in the caricatured terms used by one prominent politician a few years back. However much elites may deride the caricature, America sure loves this real-life version.

No doubt many view Duck Dynasty as a refreshingly wholesome alternative to much of pop culture (see: Hannah Montana morphing into Madonna at the MTV Video Music Awards). "Maybe it's because we live our lives like people really want to live," suggests Phil. If his hunch is right about what draws folks to such an unabashedly conservative family, it's a good sign. More Americans speaking up for what they believe - about life, marriage, family, faith, and freedom - could lead to a surprising reversal for our country as well.

Birds of a feather, right? Or in your case, is it the rare case of anencephaly&#8206; survival?

Yet when you are here, you dedicate 80% of your posts to me. Hmmmm.
I hadn't noticed that. She may be replying to something you said, which is different than dedicating posts to someone. That would be like when Woofie continues to start threads about Nate. Face it, Che - your moniker alone was intended to inflame. You have no social life and feel the need to get attention here by behaving badly. I'll say it again - you need to find something to do to heal your soul, because you won't find whatever you're looking for on here.

Collective obsession regarding you? That's one for the psychiatry books regarding narcissism. Sorry to bust your bubble, but if you check it out, I'm not here everyday. My presence here is spotty, unlike yours. You seem to like to inflame others just for the response. I just come here to chat when time permits or I have the inclination. I'm not obsessed with Topix.
You still manage to respond to an amazing number of his posts, as evidenced by Exhibit A above.

Huge chunk of my life? Do you go into isolation when you visit Topix? This really doesn't take very much effort for someone with above average intelligence.
