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!"

    It's Wonderful ~ Woman ~ Wednesday!
    ♥ `*•.¸ ♥ `*•.¸ ♥ `*•.¸ ♥ `*•.¸♥ `*•.¸
    `*•.¸ `*•.¸ To my very strong and powerful friend`*•.¸`*•.¸
    `*•.¸ `*•.¸ reading this message right now `*•.¸

    `*•.¸ `*•.¸♥* I used to have a comfort zone where I felt safe and couldn’t fail,*♥`*•.¸ `*•.¸
    `*•.¸ `*•.¸♥* Locked in my daily routine without any worry or fear,*♥`*•.¸ `*•.¸
    *•.¸ `*•.¸♥* In those imaginary four walls I was alone; it was as if I was in jail.*♥`*•.¸ `*•.¸
    `*•.¸ `*•.¸♥* I dared not try any new things that were new or unclear.*♥`*•.¸ `*•.¸

    `*•.¸ `*•.¸♥* I longed so much to do some things I’d never tried before,*♥`*•.¸ `*•.¸
    `*•.¸ `*•.¸♥* To venture out, try something new, of which I had no doubt.*♥`*•.¸ `*•.¸
    *•.¸ `*•.¸♥* But I stayed inside my comfort zone and paced the same old floor.*♥`*•.¸ `*•.¸
    `*•.¸ `*•.¸♥* When boredom got the best of me, I knew I had to figure it out.*♥`*•.¸ `*•.¸

    `*•.¸ `*•.¸♥* I told myself it didn’t matter that I wasn’t doing much.*♥`*•.¸ `*•.¸
    `*•.¸ `*•.¸♥* I claimed to be so busy with many things inside my comfort zone,*♥`*•.¸ `*•.¸
    `*•.¸ `*•.¸♥* I said I didn’t care for spontaneity, noise, crowds, and such.*♥`*•.¸ `*•.¸
    `*•.¸ `*•.¸♥* But deep inside I longed to try something new and different from what I’ve known.*♥`*•.¸ `*•.¸
