There will always be views, angles, ideas and thoughts by many.
Interesting to watch and see all that is available to us,
to notice that we are being watched as much as we watch,
and see all that is within our focus
To express gratitude for our days and time and meals, our loved ones, our friends and those we miss
the lessons they have given through the experiences and views we have witnessed is important.
Capturing each moment in time, in hearts and minds
that we can recall and often look deeper for the details that were overlooked the first glance or glimpse!
We have so many opportunities to grow to learn and to re-learn!
We can learn so much from the children if we but pay attention or ask the right questions at just the right times.
Those one word answers just might turn into conversations that unearth tremendous treasures of gems of understanding and great gifts.
They may also unearth some remarkable fears that fill the young minds of our children and things that go bump in the night yet also fill the days of wonder in the mind of our children.
Fears can debilitate adults, imagine what they do to the young ones?
So very enlightening and profoundly sad when that information highway is tapped with just the right question and a child feels safe enough to let it all out.
It can boggle the brain while leaving one grasping for all the knowledge and gratitude to the Creator to enable them to find just the right words, break it down into small sentences and begin to address the most important of conversations to walk through fear and find ways to describe illusions as David Copperfield in order to be helpful in developing warriors.
Gratitude is necessary and great thanks to the Creator and the Elders for the lessons handed down long ago; as we strive to build the youth while learning from them as well.
We all have been in those moments of not knowing and in fear.
Fear can be an obstacle or it can be an illusion.
Walking through fear is possible once folks address it, come to it face to face and realize it.
Learning to see real from not real, learning to talk through that which is troubling is the first step to awareness and awareness is key to understanding that we all; young and old own our own power.
For that we give great thanks today.
Prayers going up on this Spectacular Sunday
for EE in Colorado who is facing tremendous health issues and doctor appointments that are leaving her worn out from travel, yet a great team of physicians on board now who are all over her care.
For that we give thanks.
Prayers going up and strong today.
Thoughts for our warriors who no longer seem to be here anymore, nor post. You are all missed and we wish you well, along with hoping that nothing was said that has offended you!
Others have asked in emails about
“FIRM/IRENE, Chris our breast CA survivor, Joan, ObamaCrat, Joe, sign me A, and others”
We wish you well on your next journey or stop that you make, and also hope you will return from time to time.
I am grateful for you and your support over the years.
Gratitude and great success to team

May peace be yours
your worries be few
laughter surround you
along with faith and hope to sustain you.
May you always be in a state of
“awe” by the things you see, the places you travel if in your mind or in real time.
Did you notice in the first photo that seagull with only one leg, yet standing in amazing grace as it posed for the photo?
Ah, I didn’t either until Kamryn pointed it out to me!
May you STAND
with all that you are
and walk through fear, tribulation, heartache and struggle!
