Reading 1st paragraph of Friday’s open forum and the words YES YES YES resounding over and over again in my head!!! You are not alone!!! I am not alone!!! Ahhh..life..kids..jobs..marriages..bosses….homes…laundry…homework..meetings…family
…friends…pets…cleaning…paying bills…cant pay bills…no job…job sucks…ailing parents…loss of loved ones….sickness…parties at chuck “e” cheese (and show up on the wrong day, me today!)…lordy….the push and pull of “it all!”
What a challenge to engage life, as we should ,when literally there are RED ALERTS and just plain evil threatening our lives, our liberties ,our freedoms…. OUR AMERICA!!! The fear, oh the fear…How do we?? How can we?? How ARE we surviving??
By breathing, day at a time, with gratitude, hope, love and by turning that fear into faith! Heaps of faith, in our God, our country, most importantly ourselves! It exists here. The faith and strength found here is humbling! What a gift it is, what a gift indeed….
Gratitude…..we ask our youngens…”What’s in your attitude?”
What are we grateful for?
I’m grateful for sleeping children..
and always my sundance…..
