Gratitude breaks the spell of Writers Block
Kamál (Perfection), 18 Raḥmat (Mercy) 174 Badi - Monday, July 10, 2017 CE
"The fruits that best befit the tree of human life are trustworthiness and godliness, truthfulness and sincerity; but greater than all, after recognition of the unity of God, praised and glorified be He, is regard for the rights that are due to one’s parents. This teaching hath been mentioned in all the Books of God, and reaffirmed by the Most Exalted Pen. Consider that which the Merciful Lord hath revealed in the Qur’án, exalted are His words: “Worship ye God, join with Him no peer or likeness; and show forth kindliness and charity towards your parents …” Observe how loving-kindness to one’s parents hath been linked to recognition of the one true God! Happy they who are endued with true wisdom and understanding, who see and perceive, who read and understand, and who observe that which God hath revealed in the Holy Books of old, and in this incomparable and wondrous Tablet."
Bahá’u’lláh from The Kitab-i-Aqdas1
Both of my parents are dead, Daddy died on April 14, 1998 and Mom died on November 29, 2012. I think I did my best for Mom while she was alive, but sometimes I'm not sure. I don't know what I could have done for Daddy because he stepped out of my life when I was a child. Since they're both dead, the only thing I can do for them now is to say Prayers for the Departed.

I'm not very motivated right now, in fact, I'm a little depressed. However, depression isn't going to get anything accomplished this week. I have a lot to do this week, so I can't stay depressed or nothing will be accomplished. Perhaps part of the problem is fear or doubt that I can accomplish anything. That.. I don't know what I was going to write there because I was interrupted by the door. Anyway--I think what I was going to say is--I have a lot to do so I'd better get motivated or, at least, pretend I'm motivated or I won't get anything accomplished this week.
