"First we make our habits, then our habits make us." Denis Waitley
Today we spent a lovely morning with our granddaughter, Anne Marie. First, we took her to her favorite place for breakfast, Starbucks. Yes, though she's only four, I think she loves it there because it is so grown up. She had an apple bran muffin with chocolate milk and we got to sit in the big stuffed purple chairs. Then back to our house where we both put our feet up for a long time. Can you guess why? She is addicted to the DS (hand held video game player). Specifically, Super Mario. It's the first thing she grabs when she gets here. She would spend hours on this if I let her, she doesn't want to leave the house or do anything else. She won't even go out for ice-cream. She knows the moves of the games that even Phil and I don't. Today I managed to drag her away to play with and eat these neat candy lego blocks I got her, and we made these bracelets together. But she still had to have the game unit in her sight! Were you ever addicted to anything?Are you now? Are any addictions a good thing, or should EVERYTHING be in moderation?
"...have the wisdom to show restraint." Proverbs 23:4
