Ajoleblon...A Cajun Tale

This journal is a bunch of rants about nothing. Mostly lighthearted happenings in the life of a woman who is very simple and who wants for nothing but greatly appreciates whatever is given. You will find nothing profound here but hopefully something that will make you laugh and that's what I enjoy doing most. Being humorous. Fight all error, but do it with good humor, patience, kindness, and love. Harshness will damage your own soul and spoil the best cause.

Misery loves Company

The healthy do not know how the sick feel, nor the full how the hungry suffer.  But sick sympathize with sick, and hungry with hungry, the more closely the more they are alike. For just as pure truth is seen only with a pure heart, so a brother's misery is truly felt only with a miserable heart.

- St. Bernard of Clavirvaux  (1090-1153)


Oh isn't this the truth?  May I always be hungry, miserable and sick so I can and will always know what my fellow humans feel.
