October 10, 2022

Due to this massive problem with the host of our server, over half of our 15K Daily Thoughts are not able to be delivered. They had it fairly well restored and repaired last night however this morning it is totally messed up again. So I'm not able to attempt the sending of the Daily Thought out to our lovely Subscribers again or it will make part of the problem worse. This problem is affecting Yahoo! and aol email addresses the most. Also this makes it so I can't reply to your emails at this point. I'm so sorry for this mess. I will not be sending out the Daily Thought until it is totally resolved which makes me incredibly sad and frustrated. I will continue posting it here on the Archives (if possible.) It will also be posted on the Daily Thought page of our website, link at the bottom of this page.

We must avoid quick-tempered criticism and furious, power-driven argument.
The same goes for sulking or silent scorn. These are emotional booby traps
baited with pride and vengefulness. Our first job is to sidestep the traps.
When we are tempted by the bait, we should train ourselves to step back
and think. For we can neither think nor act to good purpose until the habit
of self-restraint has become automatic.
