My word for 2019 was LISTEN
Empathic listening is a way of listening and responding to another person that improves mutual understanding and trust.
**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!"

    Why did they let the turkey join the band?
    Because he had the drumsticks.

    Why did the farmer have to separate his chickens from his turkeys?
    Because they were up to some fowl play.

    What happened to the turkeys that got into a fight?
    They got the stuffing knocked out of them!

    What's a turkey's favorite type of weather?
    Fowl weather.

    Why did the cranberries turn red?
    They saw the turkey dressing.

    If April showers bring May flowers, what do May flowers bring?
    Pilgrims!

    Why should you not set the turkey next to the dessert on the table?
    Because he will gobble it up!
