Sandwiches are Good

And now, to completely lighten the mood, I must share with you that I won a most fabulous giveaway over at Sandwich 365.  It is a gift card to CSNstores.com, and I am so excited. 

My thanks to Keri for both her giveaway and her deliciously fun blog.  If you like sandwiches ~ and who doesn't ~ or even just good blogging, you have to check out her very original, very fun blog.

I'll bet not even Keri knew that my favorite quote about life involves a sandwich . . .

I had been going to college at night, part-time for nearly 5 years.  It was time to start making some decisions.  I felt the call of law school, yet was daunted by the time, cost, and challenge that law school and, later, a legal career would mean.  I looked to my favorite English professor for some perspective.  He was a lawyer by day and an English Lit. prof by night.  I summed up my issues and desires and apprehensions.  I shared my worries about the expense of law school and the financial struggle it would be.   I asked him what he thought, to which he answered:

"Life is short.  Do what you want.  You can always find someone who'll make you a sandwich." 

So there you have it.  And he is right.  For the most part, people are kind and, should you need it, they will help you.  Lean on that knowledge when you need some comfort and encouragement and then set your shoulders back and get on with it.

 
Thanks, Professor Campenni!

And thanks, again, to Keri at Sandwich 365 ~

That's good advice.

My favorite sandwich quote comes from Liz Lemon of 30 Rock:

"I believe that all anyone really wants in this life is to sit in peace and eat a sandwich."

Congratulations on the giveaway!

That's a great quote from a wise man.
I hope you find a class to suit- it will be calming & peaceful. Will you be able to leave your daughter for a while so you can get to a class & " Switch off " for a while ?
Ta'i Chi helps me to calm my mind & stretch my muscles. Good luck in finding a class with a really good teacher you like.

Hello! I love that! What wonderful words indeed! Go and take some time for yourself. You are right, for the most part people are trul kind, and the ones who don't even try to understand are harsh and not compassionate. that is their problem and not yours. I hope that you only find kindness on your journeys. Susie xxxx Don't forget that if you need to talk (as my children have Rad too) I am here. xx
