Good health, a sense of well-being, and love.
My father sent me to college even though he hadn’t had the opportunity to go himself. It was very important to him that his children be educated. I am forever grateful for the window into a whole new world–and the opportunities that came with it– that my college education gave me.
My father. He was a man of great integrity, despite all those around him who had none.
I hope to be remembered as a funny person who always made people laugh. I want to be remembered for my kindness and generosity. I hope I will be forgiven for all my many mistakes.
By not reading the news!!
I just turned 65 and the outpouring of love and good wishes from friends and family was a most joyful and welcome experience. Joy abounds!
Slow down. Look around. Breathe. be present in the moment.
The world suddenly looks more beautiful.
Think first, then act (or not).
I’m with Kevin!
It is a beautiful sunny day and I feel grateful for it, as so many places in the country are snowed in.
The true public servants who keep our country running.
The joy of being accepted–I meet people from many other countries and walks of life–and I greet them all with a welcoming spirit. It is wonderful to see the fear leave them and their eyes light up when we just have a “normal” conversation about life.
A sunny day. A sweet cat. Another day of life!
I agree with Antoinette. My first impulse is to react, one that almost always turns out badly. Stop, breathe and think before I act–that is essential for me. (And I also agree that not everything is about me!!)
I am cooking good food for my husband (and me). I am calling friends to check in. I am feeling grateful for all the wonderful people I know and come in contact with.
I keep this thought in the forefront of my mind. It helps me be a more understanding and compassionate person.
I totally get this, Mica!
This was true for me as well, Ellen. Reading has been a lifesaving joy for me.
What a beautiful story, Cathy. I wish you and your husband all the best.
Me neither! 🙂
