For your consideration……

After a play performance, there was a question and answer session. One young student aptly noticed that it must have taken an incredible amount of time to learn the script and dance steps as well as make the costumes.

He asked, “Isn’t this a lot of work.”

“Oh yes,” the girl answered him. “We started right after school started. We practiced every single day, 5 days a week. Then a couple of weeks ago we started practicing on weekends also.”

The young student pursued, “Why?”

“Because we love it. And we become a family.” the young performer answered while the rest of the cast nodded in agreement.

There is no substitute for doing work that you love. True self-gratification comes from doing work that you yourself value.

We are all meant to do work that we love. It is up to us to seek it out.

That is the HOPE. And so it is.


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

-Meditate/pray….ask….”What is my next step for my highest good and the highest good of all?”

-Drink lots of water.

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

-Journal your dreams.


What made me smile yesterday…….

-Nice phone call from Shannon who it seems like I never talk too.

-Texting with Mackenie.  She always good getting back with the information I need.

-Walking the class over to the high school in the snow. Snowballs were so tempting but they refrained as asked.

-Catching a few acts of “Bye Bye Birdie.”
