What a fabulous day!! I met a friend at NW EyeCare Professionals, and introduced her to Dr. Macson Lee, who would be her Behavioral / Neurological Optometrist. Both she and her husband were beside themselves with his knowledge, understanding, and how one visit made such a huge difference!! I met & had a great conversation with a wonderful man in the waiting room who left carrying a signed copy of ‘Learning to Make Toast’. He was thrilled!! Then Husband & I picked up some donations for Oregon Impact’s fundraiser, Merry & Bright that’s being held on November 30th at the Abernathy Center in Oregon City.
It was such an honor to be asked to sit with a patient of Dr. Bruce’s today. She recently was hurt in a car crash, which resulted in a TBI. Her injury devastated her, but given a copy of ‘Learning to Make Toast’ from one of Dr. Bruce’s tech’s days ago to help give her hope. Then I surprised her with a visit and what a surprise it was! She doesn’t live in Oregon and when she met the woman the book was about, she couldn’t stop crying she was so overwhelmed and appreciative. We’ll be staying in touch even when she moves back home to Alaska.
It feels so good and so right living a purpose filled life!
As we begin a new school year, take a minute to say a little prayer for the kids that don’t fit in. The kids that come home in tears, because they sit on the buddy bench at recess- and even then no one will play with them. The kids that are “different” at school. Pray they know they are loved, pray they know they are special, and pray they find their tribe of friends. Teach your kids to be kind. Teach them to reach out to those who seem to need a friend or buddy. The best way to do this is to model this ourselves…… Copy, paste and share the love. #projectbkind. #loveoneanother
It had the potential for being a very bad start to the day 😳 I accidentally put salt on my Lehr Love Egg. Anybody that knows me, knows I DETEST salt. It can’t even touch my tongue without me spitting out the food & wiping off my tongue! Luckily I was able to wipe it off, follow it with a little pepper BEFORE I took a bite.
Later this morning I’ll be going to my Civil Tongues Toastmasters meeting. Then I’ll head over to Good Samaritan Medical Center for the 70th anniversary RIO garden party where I’ll be doing a book signing from 4:00 to 6:00.
