    another great post…I mostly follow funny blogs, because if they aren't, I find them mostly….uninspiring. but of course I have a serious side too, and appreciate very much your sharing!

    These are all great lessons…some of which I'm still trying to work on. The one about do not respond in anger is a hard one for me…that's what I grew up around so it just comes natural to me to speak out of anger, rather than keeping my mouth quiet until I've calmed down. That is definitely something I need to get under control!

    I went and voted for you! Hope you win! Oh and I haven't checked your blog in IE yet. I'm having problems with IE on my computer so maybe it was a glitch on my end.

    This post really struck a chord with me today. I'm struggling a bit lately and there are some valuable lessons to be learned. I just can't figure out what the heck I'm supposed to be learning… :)

    That's a favourite line of mine – what goes around , comes around.. and it is so true.

    Liked the post.

    Sometimes it's amazing how long it takes me to learn a particular lesson, but the Universe never gives up on me.

    Nobody is responsible for the choices you make…that's my favorite, definitely like that one!

    I completely agree that the same lessons keep coming back…my issue is pride, and I'm learning the lesson in new ways again and again.

    It's interesting, like you said, to see how the flaws and strengths of ourselves assert themselves in our children.

    Sometimes, I'll see O do something bullheaded and cringe, thinking, "Oh, save yourself years of frustration, O. Trust me."

    Of course, he'll go his own way.

    Sorry for the long comment–great post, as always.

    Stopping by from Mama Kat's…

    I tend to use the "What goes around, comes around" and add to it: "and if it comes around today— great; and if it comes around next year— that's great too"

    Those who expect people to pay you back right away do not understand this second part because they want instant gratification.

    Good luck on teaching that last one ;-)

    I really agree with all of these though, particularly that no one else is responsible for the choices that we make!

    I am so there with you. My experiences MUST mean something too, and the blogging helps me process it… It helps me share what I've learned from it.

    Thanks for sharing what you've learned.
