When my 8 month old niece smiles at me–it such genuine joy on her part, and on mine!
I deeply believe people should be vaccinated, if not for themselves then for others.
I am very concerned about family members who refuse the vaccine and have already gotten Covid. They are now long haulers, and one may die. There is no reasoning with them.
Ask questions, and be a good listener.
My husband and I are considering a move from our home that we never planned on. We live in a lovely townhome that is of course, connected to other units. There are some potential and significant community wide expenses coming up as well as an increasingly impaired next door neighbor who is potentially putting our property at risk. Rather than panic, we are taking our time to decide what the best next step is. Stressful but part of life.
Today is difficult as a relative who leans far-right (as in tipped over) is creating havoc in the family. It is so easy to get riled up. Thank you for the reminder to walk in peace.
My grandmother’s baking bread–reminds me of love and feeling safe.
“Think before you speak.” Wise words from my father. Did I listen?? Not always but I am better at it now. 🙂
Decency is surely missing from our society today. Politics have made our discourse raw and unfettered. It is important for me to counteract that by being a better listener rather than jumping on opinions that I disagree with.
The kindness of my father, who lived to help others, especially his family.
I must be peaceful myself. Not quickly react to things I disagree with, but letting the moment settle. Breathe.
I can appreciate the coming fall weather. After some scorching temperatures this summer, it is nice to feel the cool air in the mornings.
I have empathy for others’ situations and am at my best when I can help them in their time of need.
Thank you, Michele. It certainly is!
Well said, Kevin, and a good reminder for all of us Boomers.
Thank you for being a teacher during this challenging time. Your students are fortunate.
Elaine, I so agree with this! I think we need to acknowledge our public officials for their hard work on our behalf, and of course the people that add so much to our lives. 🙂
Dusty Su, can someone come to your place and help you move your things? That may make your current landlord think twice before berating and abusing you.
Please move! Trust that you don’t feel safe and act accordingly. And don’t feel you owe this person anything, including final rent. Your emotional and personal safety must come first.
Love this, Elaine!
