One Step at at Time

One of the things I’ve learned at the ranch where I volunteer is how to walk and carry myself.  Yes…I was taught how to walk again and we spent time walking in circles to practice.  You would think I would have had that one down after 40-some years!  What I learned was I had still not broken a habit of looking down when I walk.  This habit has been around forever and sometimes I chastised myself for it.  People with low self esteem look down…people without vision look down…people with poor…

You're Going the Wrong Way Dammit!

It’s funny the things you remember at a time in your life when you need guidance and you know that the only answer worth living is going to come from deep within.

Hope is a BIG word…a BIG idea.

Hope can lift a soul from the depths of despair.

Hope can help one persevere through a crisis.

Hope can calm, soothe and inspire.
