The People You Fall On

Today I'm reflecting about something that happened on my flight home from Pennsylvania this past week. Storms put us on a weather delay, so I was pretty excited when we finally took off Saturday afternoon. Energized but exhausted from a fun-filled week, I was eager to pull out my pillow for a power nap. Unfortunately, the flight attendants' repeated reminders to stay seated, not only for our safety, but for the well-being "of the people you will fall on" kept that coveted rest from happening.


PPBF: The Day You Begin

Happy Friday; this week was a somber one
with the seventeen-year mark of 9/11 globally
and the ten-year anniversary of hurricane Ike locally,
a time for reflection and gratitude, for sure.
And we've had some bumps in the road on the home front,
but nothing that we can't hurdle together
with a little bit of grace and a whole lot of love.

Today I'm grateful for this incredible PPBF find.

Sailing WITH A Fleet

Today I'm excited because I've been making surprise visits and harvesting seeds of sunshine and joy with some very special counseling colleagues who have been sailing through life with me. Don't you love the word with?

Living Loved

Today this thought, from Bob Goff's new book Everybody, Always.


What we do with our love; I'm challenged reflecting on that.
Not love as a feeling so much, but love as an action verb.
Thinking with our hearts.
