REFLECTIONS ON LIFE: Life on Life's Terms

Have you ever encountered the painful truth of the expression

 "doing life on life's terms"?  Lately I became very aware od it

and how real it can feel.

This year Texas is experiencing the hottest spring and summer

 (so far) in recorded history. 

This is the summer our AC units gave up on us.

  We had to wait 19 days before one of the units could be repaired. 

As I write this it is being installed. 

Your head knows that you're not unique, nor the only one

 afflicted, yet your feelings want you to believe how unfair

and terrible this is!


My 93 year old step mother, who is usually very cold, suddenly

 could  not support the heat.  To complete the picture the long

 awaited visit by my daughter and grand children became reality. 

They arrived and settled in...yes settled into this inferno.

 Sleepless and restless nights, hot and sweaty bodies;

the square footage per ego was and is minimal. 

False promises and lies by overwhelmed and overworked

 employees of AC companies struly brought to the surface

 what it really means: Life on Life's terms.


Together, we all had to make very quickly some sane choices

 and practice pro-active behaviors.  Patience, tolerance,

 respect and love prevailed. 

We did life on life's terms not as victims or angry bullies,

rather accepting what is...including a lot of unfavorable

 circumstances.  In other words this is the summer

of great lemonade made from the lemons of life.  It is the

summer of great appreciation for the technology and the

wonders of AC!  We have Power, the fridge works, love prevails

and Life is good even when it is not on our terms!

This site started off pretty well only to be sold later by the owner. The new management which took over the site reset all the balances of the users. Although the new owners who go by the montblanc replica watches James and Ultra tried their best to clear earlier dues and make payments on time, the site just couldn't pay up. Shortly, the forum was also closed.

Another trait of an authentic Replica IWC Watches is the almost invisible laser-etched crown logo on the inside of the crystal at the 6 o'clock position. A few replica Rolex watches have this etching, but it is often smaller and less distinct than on an authentic replica IWC pilot.Also, an authentic IWC Aquatimer Automatic Chronograph has a date magnification 2.5 times normal size which should almost visibly fill the glass bubble.
