Good Morning Digital Neighbors across the vast seas of inter-webs! Salutations and libations (mine is coffee) to the Phamily, dearest Refugees, and those wild Triggeratti! Happy Sunday Early Birds & Dawn Patrol, Day Walkers and Later Dayers, Beautiful Bigots and Engaged Conversants, Lurkers and Scrollers, and all the Fascinating People. I know I don't follow capitalization rules, but that is the least of my grammatical and typing issues. 😜
Start each day with a positive thought and a grateful heart. - Roy T. Bennet
I try to embrace that simple sentiment as much as possible with sounding like some stupid inspirational poster from the 70's or 80's. There is so much to be grateful for in my life, and I hope you can discover that in your life. Seeing all the good that is present does not dismiss the difficulties, challenges or the evil that can be present as well. Our hearts-minds are big enough to contain them all, we choose what we focus on with our intentions. To focus on gratitude does not mean we ignore the challenging parts of life, although many do to their ruin, but ought to give us the energy and confidence to address it with courage and patience. There is always time for more gratitude, it does more to change my life from the greyscaling of society back to the vibrancy of being gifted, be it by the Divine, good fortune or some other cause.
Gratitude is the first sign of a thinking, rational creature.” –Bl. Solanus Casey

The two charities I want to sponsor at the beginning will be our St. Vincent de Paul Food Pantry that services our New Melle Community. The other charity will...
