“…The only normal thing I want is a normal temperature….”

Normality verses….. Abnormality:  From my own perspective; I’ve NEVER been normal, nor do I want to.  Most of my friends and many acquaintances; my family, relatives, and peers…view me as being ABNORMAL.  All of which, sets well with me.  I like it.  I want to be different.  If I were to walk into a room and no heads were turned, then I would walk out… as I must be in a room with other abnormal…. not usually the case.  Abnormal’s are not impressed with other Abnormal’s.  Often times, when I walk in a room, and if it is filled with all Normal’s….then… the heads will turn.  Thank you God.  Normal people don’t stand out….rather, they blend with each other.  That said, again, Abnormal people, those who keep the masses guessing…are in a better position to influence, because everyone is listening to them, just to see what the “fool” is going to do, or say next. The only normal thing I want is a normal temperature.  Being “Abnormal” has served me well.  I’ve mastered Abnormality; so as to use it to my advantage.  I didn’t start one day, thinking…gee…I want to be Abnormal….I just turned out that way.  Rather, the condition fit me well, and I thrived on the opportunities it has brought me.  With all of this said….I have always, and recommend to others….to always be honest with yourself and others, treat others and live by the Golden Rule, always leave “just enough” in the deal to still make it a sweet deal for the next guy, and NEVER buy something that you can’t afford to lose, or be willing to sell to your own Mother.  In closing…let me say…Abnormality…to me…is my Normal…it is the only thing I know…it’s the “others” who view me as Abnormal.  We each, when God created us (in His Image), were given a certain DNA, which distinguishes us from one another, a finger print…if you will…so, rather Normal, or Abnormal…we are who we are, and God expects us to make the most of it.  Keep Trying!!  Romans 12:2 Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect. …Blessings…cjlb…3/30/14    (cb.com – 379-2157)
