Hello October 1


RADFORD HIGH SCHOOL
BOBCATS
Good morning
October 1
Here it comes, h/she did it again….
here comes the LIGHT of another day!
and
ohhh boy that Godson of mine
#51 da Beast, D’Vante
and
those Bobcats
were on the prowl last night
and sure did take that field
with some pride and purpose!
Looked and sounded like they were goin to just rip it up
with a shut out
but it ended out with a
38-13 victory!
CONGRatulations Bobcats!
FIERCE AND HANDSOME BUNCH
THEY ARE!!!
Kamryn was the “water boy”
now isn’t that just great!!!
and to think
he is also a little Bobcat
and his team
won as well this week!
Now the Mom of those Godsons; cuz Angie… just got herself a new job up there and is soon to be the new DIRECTOR ANGIE at the Pulaski Rehab Center/Nursing facility… and don’t you know that Director Angie of Activies is just about as happy as happy can be!!!
Congrats cuzzie!
Well friends…
here we are,
October 1, 2011
and you can tell be the air, the light, the overall everything out there
FALL IS HERE!
Are you ready for it?
It’s time for the changes, the colors, the splendor…
The fields that were green are about to change to brown…
We are entering the dark months;
the light is changing, moods are changing.
and
if you’ve been reading the blogs this week
you can tell from the news
the comments of others
grief is heavy in the air
along with
“anger/frustration/bitterness/confusion/frustration”
><
It is the
changing season
TIME TO GATHER
your resources!
It is also a time of
great times
if you see all that is happening around communities!
From Octoberfests to pow-wows, to
MS yard sales!
Folks are “out and about”; getting or staying busy as the squirrels are busy “gathering what they need” for the dark and lean times to come.
It is
“the gathering season”
just as those who are grieving, those who are now dealing with the loss of
HOPE
those who are in pain
or
finding a path to voice
anger through advocacy
it is a time
to
“gather”
it is the “FALL” of the year.
It is also time to
“gather strength”
and
to
“re-charge your batteries”
to
“get your house in order”
in order
to take best care of
YOU.
As yesterdays’ thoughts and message
“Lessons from HOPE”
continue to be learned;
remember
to
take best care of YOU
as
it is
“the gathering season”.
Time to “gather your resources”.
We could do well to learn from the 4leggeds;
to watch as they slow their heart rates down, to not get all “jacked up”; but rather to relax as we prepare to den for the winter.
Taking what we need to last us, cleaning up around us, preparing for ourselves and those we love and enjoying each moment
and watching the beauty as it unfolds around us today, right here right now as this day unfolds.
These squirrels sure are giving the little ones here a fit;
they run around gathering,
but they do take the time
to make fun of
Jeepers and Gypsy
to taunt and tease them from a safe distance
and then run the trees
and
I can’t help but marvel at it all.
The butterflies continue their dance
around the flowers
as
if saying
“not here, it is not fall, nor do we care
just look at us”.
The birds are singing their song
and
wondering I am sure if we as humans
are listening
or
are we appreciating what they have to say!
The North American Black Bears
are preparing to den for winter;
they are doing what wild bears do
and
their heart rates are slowing down
as they prepare
as they hunt for the “just right place”
it is in their control
not mine;
just as your home is yours
and
not mine.
It is the
“gathering season”.
Gather well friends… enjoy all today and in the days to come, with
HOPE, FAITH, COMPASSION, JOY,
and
have yourself as much FUN as you can!
I hope if you are
“able”
you are OUT today
and
you are “gathering”
all that you need and want
to
make this a remarkable day
in
all ways for yourself
and
…..
I wish you enough
to
be all that you dare to dream.
I HOPE you dance today!
Walk In Beauty,
DRSES

I love my birthday as it is the best thing in the fall for me. Had an extremely busy day, tired but satisfied after a hard days work at the shelter with animal rescue. Dr. Sherry, have a safe travel and enjoy your time away and meeting new people. I look forward to hearing about it. Take care friends and Have a great evening – Sandy♥

  4. Way to go Bobcats! I am once uplifted by your words, my friend. I enjoyed a morning with my husband at the museum and we had ice cream sundaes for lunch! It was lovely. And thank you for mentioning raising money for MS. Someday we WILL find a cure!! Yes, time to move forward, with HOPE in our hearts. HOPE taught me the gentle nature of black bears. Oh, how she loved life! And I will carry her in my heart always, and strive to live as she did–full of joy, caution, love, and independence. How can I do less? Yes, I have HOPE in my heart.Safe travels to you this week. Love and blessings on the wind to you, my friend….Guin
