For your consideration……..

We were all born perfect with a purpose. We will learn the lessons of that purpose in various ways. Some may seem and feel joyous, some hum-drum, some sad and tragic. It is life for everyone. There is a plan for everyone. We don’t usually get to know the “background story” or the reasons why.

The message today is that no one is singled out. So the hard times are just “so what’s”. Some may seem harder than others. But maybe, just maybe, it is an offering for mastering a bigger lesson or the presentation of bigger opportunities.

It is not about the problem. It is about what we do with it, how we handle it and what we learn from it. There really is no “poor me” unless we subscribe to it. We are self-fulling prophesies. Where will the poor me take us? Is that really where we want to go? Is that really where we want to help our neighbor go? Pity parties promote more pity, sucking out the HOPE.

Each day presents new opportunity. A new day=a new chance. That is the HOPE should we choose to accept it.


Bit by bit, piece by piece, HOPE by HOPE action steps anyone can take…….

-Meditate/pray staying connected to your HOPE.

-Drink lots of water.

-Get outdoors and take in at least 10 deep breaths.

-Make a “T” chart. On one side list what you are ready to let go. On the other side list what you want to grow or accomplish.


What made me smile yesterday…….

-A quiet day at home.

-I am going to Stillwater next week so I am working hard to get home back in shape so I can to that. I made a lot of progress today.

-Alex made it to Jackson Hole, WY on time without flight delays. A real success after her Wednesday experience.

-I finally made contact with my friend, Jackie.


Love, Blessings and Gratitude,
