Welcome Sparklers!

My word for 2021 is Present
The word present has multiple meanings, most of which concern giving (a present is a gift) or time (the present is right now).
The verb present might mean to deliver something like a speech, or perform something like a play.

My word for 2020 — 20/20 Vision
Vision Board - Creating a sacred space that displays what I love.
Vision - Small home with things I love.
**We did move to town - it was a good move!

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.

    It's Friday once again! While recently shopping to renew my medical insurance just before the holidays, I had this thought . . . Insurance and hospital gowns have a lot in common; you're not really covered as much as you think you are.

    Also, I recently heard there's a new kind of flu going around. It's called the Amish Flu. First you get a little hoarse, and then you get a little buggy.

    My neighbor who's a nurse told me that the other day, she went into a patient's room to check his vitals, and saw an apple on the bedstand. As she was taking his pulse she remarked, "An apple a day keeps the doctor away." He replied, "You know, you're right. I haven't seen a doctor in three days!"

    When I stepped on the scale at the doctor's office, I was surprised to see I gained a few pound, and weighed 144 pounds.
    Offhandedly I turned to the nurses aide as she was ready to enter it into my chart, winked, and said, "Why don't you just take off that last four?"
    Several minutes later my doctor came in, flipped open my chart and said, "I see you've lost weight. You're down to 14 pounds!"

    Another neighbor's son is in medical school and needed to decide on his medical specialty.
    Even though he had excelled in all his anatomy, biology, and physiology courses he had
    decided he didn't like surgery. His advisor simply replied "Suture self."

    Have a wonderful weekend!
