Hello! Welcome!
My word for 2019 is LISTEN
Empathic listening is a way of listening and responding to another person that improves mutual understanding and trust.
*Listening is hard when the sounds around us grow mean and ugly.
**The Set-aside Prayer: from (DJBTOO— Donna)
Help me set aside everything I know, and everything I think I know, for an open mind and new experiences.

My word for 2018 was JOY!
Finding Joy in the journey. It was a very joyful year!

My word for 2017 was HOPE
I have hope in my heart for all good things personally and spiritually. I have hope for a world at peace.

My word for the year 2016 was ADVENTURE !
It was a good word and forced me to step out of my comfort zone many times. Some adventures were with friends, some with family, some alone and many that I will always cherish.

From: Brave Enough by Cheryl Strayed
Nobody will protect you from your suffering. You can't cry it away or eat it away or starve it away or walk it away or punch it away or even therapy it away. It's just there, and you have to survive it. You have to endure it. You have to live through it and love it and move on and be better for it and run as far as you can in the direction of your best and happiest dreams across the bridge that was built by your own desire to heal. Therapists and friends can help you along the way, but the healing--the genuine healing, the actual real-deal, down-on-your-knees-in-the-mud change--is entirely and absolutely up to you.

This is part of Fra Giovanni's Christmas Prayer
"I salute you! There is nothing I can give you which you have not; but there is much that, while I cannot give, you can take.
No heaven can come to us unless our hearts find rest in it today. Take Heaven.
No peace lies in the future which is not hidden in the present moment. Take Peace.
The gloom of the world is but a shadow; behind it, yet within our reach is joy. Take Joy!"

    Welcome to November, and Happy Friday!

    I know two orthopedists that started a new practice. It was a joint operation.

    Two surgeons were joking about sutures, and had each other in stitches.

    Why did the doctor accept a new patient? He figured he might as well give him a shot.

    After 5 years with the same chiropractor, I moved and had to change doctors. It was quite an adjustment.

    The audiologist told his patient to use a Q-tip to clean out his ear. It went in one ear and out the other.

    Old doctors never die they just lose their patience.

    Enjoy your weekend!
