karma: Karma is a sum of all that an individual has done, is currently doing and will do. The results or “fruits” of actions are called karma-phala. Karma is not about retribution, vengeance, punishment or reward, karma simply deals with what is. The effects of all deeds actively create past, present and future experiences, thus making one responsible for one’s own life, and the pain and joy it brings to others. In religions that incorporate reincarnation, karma extends through one’s present life and all past and future lives as well. It is cumulative.

I can’t even believe this happened again! Another gift today, in the form of a Target Gift Card. I was really needing a bucket hat for the baby that I didn’t HATE and I was wondering what the first dragon/dinonsaur item for the baby would be. And voila! Two birds, one stone. That one stone actually being two people: Roni and James! I will save all my super weepy thanks for the thank you cards, but ohmigod, it’s so nice to know that people are nice! Check out these incredible people here!
