Life comes with seasons. Some seasons of happiness, others a season of grief. The year 2019 is almost over and it has been one for the books. We only have two months left and that will quickly pass by as we get into the hustle and bustle of the holiday season. As the holidays begin we get so busy that the year flies out of here.
Last week as I was scrolling, I saw a video of Ellen DeGeneres pop up on my timeline. I have long been a fan of Ellen, in fact, I used to come in from school just in time to catch her show in the evenings. Despite what has been said about her due to her beliefs, Ellen is my kind of person.
I would like to start off this week with sincere condolences for the family of Mrs. Martha Graham. She was a wonderful lady who I had the pleasure of getting to know over the past few years. The community definitely suffered a great loss, but I know she is rejoicing in heaven this morning.
Technology changes, days change, even the light changes to dark on a regular schedule as the moon rises, the sun falls. Throughout life we have heard “change in inevitable.” We walk through life comfortable until life throws us a curveball or a forced change. Some changes are actions of consequences and some we have absolutely no control over.
Another busy weekend has come to an end. It seems like those two days fly by every time. My weekends are always full trying to keep up with the current events going on, and getting all of the housework done before Monday rears itself yet again.
I see so many people drag into work each day depressed to be there. So many leave the person they love because of other people’s truly irrelevant opinions. Stop! Living for other people will get you nowhere when it comes to your happiness.
The latter part of last week was spent putting together the 9/11 tribute pages you will see a few pages over. As I designed and laid out the pages, I looked through a few quotes hoping to find one to use on the page. I finally settled on one from former President George W. Bush that I think fit nicely as a tribute to that dreadful day.
How often do we use the word I? I need this. I want that. I have to do such and such. So many people try to figure out where this generation went wrong. It was when we started teaching that “I” meant more than everyone else.
