I am frightened by what is happening in our government, and feel I must start talking about this more. We are beginning to normalize things that would have been unthinkable just a few years ago. We must all speak up before it is too late.
The wise woman voice inside my head. Some might call her God but she has never failed me.
Be kind and respectful to all living beings.
I don’t really play but I do laugh a lot, and make others laugh. Does that count? 😊
At my fears about my upcoming retirement.
Not let the little voice in my head reign today. It is always waiting to remind me of times I have failed in the past. It is very wearing and it will be nice to have a break!
Sunshine, good friends, helping someone.
I am able to make people feel comfortable almost immediately, even if I have just met them. It is a natural impulse in me to connect with others, which helps greatly in the community college where I work. We have a widely diverse student body, and I have learned to meet each new student where they are. I am not perfect at it, but I make sure that my heart is always in the right place. It has been immensely rewarding to me, and I hope to them as well.
Sunshine–something we lack in the Pacific Northwest during the winter months!
Can we all just get along? Even for a day?!
Grace is the love and acceptance of family and friends, even when I don’t deserve it…
I know that all I have been given/earned is due to the efforts of many others. I gratefully thank them daily, starting with my father.
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.
Ana, let’s continue to make the world a little friendlier!
Thank you, Cathy.
I really like this. Thank you.
