My faith in God, my family, friends and my relationships with others.
I loved the sunsets in Hawaii and the feeling was contentment, complete relaxation, and completeness. As for sunrises, the most memorable is when I was fishing in Kenai, AK. Just breathtaking, surreal – best days – made me grateful for everything around me. The experience is probably one of my top 10. Exhilarating.
My faith in God, my family, my home, we have what we need at this moment to sustain us during this COVID-19 crisis. I have my job and we have food, water, and all the necessities for life. We are truly grateful and blessed. Praise Jehovah God!
My friend Ratiba, who is currently going through a divorce after 36 years of marriage.
Give us another day Lord God to experience the beautiful magenta sunsets, and let us not forget that every day is precious and each day another gift.
I am currently working from home in a support position for a health care organization in Alaska. Today I was helping a co-worker who has a deadline to provide instructions for tele-health visits. I am praying that these instructions are clear and useful for patients seeking medical advise during this crisis. I am complying with orders to stay home and I continue to pray for the health and safety of every human.
My co-workers. I have learned so much from the people I work with, and many of them have inspired me to grow as a person both professionally and personally. I care more now then ever what they think of me.
Forgiveness. If I want to be forgiven I must honor the power of forgiveness by forgiving others. I struggle with forgiving myself for all of my imperfections, lies and indifference. I feel that if I can begin to recognize and learn from my shortcomings – maybe I can begin to extend mercy and grace to others by forgiving them too!
I am grateful to learning from every experience and focusing on what I can learn from any experience, even tragic ones. Being grateful can help you to grow and move forward instead of staying in a difficult situation or negative head space.
Being independent is important. Never fully rely on others completely, even family, or you may end up with feelings of resentment or regret. Have a plan ‘ME’.
This may be too personal, political to answer.
The word that comes to mind is ‘kindness’. There are many ways to extend kindness to others. One way I build this into my routine is to practice ‘A Random Act of Kindness’ in the workplace. Some examples include inviting a co-worker to lunch (even someone you’ve never gone to lunch with), or opening the door for everyone, or just smiling at everyone all day You may feel you already do these things… I did. However, when you consciously do these acts of kind...

However, when you consciously do these acts of kindness all day its different, but feels great, and much harder to really be mindful about showing kindness throughout the day.
I use to get depressed or feel defeated. Now, I feel grateful for what I have and content for where I’m at in life and for what I have accomplished.
This last August my first grandchild was born. Never imagined that my heart could love another human as much as I love him. In order to expand this love to the world and others we share him with family and friends so they have an opportunity to feel the experience of this unconditional love and connection.
Thank you Shaun!
