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.
WOW!!! What a phenomenal early Christmas gift! My BFF Mary Weiler is flying me down to Palm Springs in January to stay with her & her hubby Dan for four days! I have a layover in San Francisco, so I’m hoping to see my nephew Adam Keefer, his beautiful wife Rama Katkar and their bundle of love, (still not here yet) my newest great nephew!!!
I enjoyed a great lunch and spent a wonderful afternoon with a good friend of mine from high school, Katie Yates! The friends I made at St. Mary’s Academy are second to none!! Lifelong friendships with first class women🤗💞
After our fabulous breakfast, I did the dishes, took out the garbage and recycling, got dinner in the crock pot, (pork sliders!) cleaned out the birdbath to get it ready the solar water fountain I’ll be putting in there for the birds and all before 9:00! Now I’m ready to go hit the Montavilla Farmers Market for cherries, raspberries and other yummies!!!
Then, and only then, will I take my second nap! 🍒🍆🌽
