      Thanks Irene for your encouragement and leadership in so many ways!

    In spite of some frustrations, reminded of many things to be thankful for, Being grateful is a great discipline and antidote to challenges in life!l

      I know you are devout believer and I honor this!  I also realize we are entering time of Gemini where it's this side, that side, this way and that way.  Up, down . . . hang in there and I look forward to seeing you before too long.  I often find it tough to be real in the feelings I want to honor when disappointments, challenges dampen the joy - which is always present as well.

    Another beautiful day to be out in nature. Enjoying our irises in our backyard. Reminded that we only have one planet and little time to turn things around for saving it. 

    • Jeanne Poirier 5/12/2019 6:28 PM
      The purple iris from my dad's raspberries years ago came into bloom this weekend.  Even though it was Mother's Day - it was great to see my dad in them too!!  
      May we all be up to the task and do what we can to save our Mother Earth!!

    Grateful for the peaceful evening as I walked through our neighborhood reflecting on all I am thankful for including our Interfaith team and great captain Sue. Have faith!

    • Jeanne Poirier 5/10/2019 8:57 PM
      I am grateful for our leader too!!  While I want to have faith, I don't want to be blind.  Does that make sense?

  • Irene Morrow 5/08/2019 11:18 PM
    Realizing that eating 4 cups of fruits and vegetables a day keeps me from the junk food! Amazing!
