Reflecting



Taking a moment today to reflect on all that is good in my life.  My small community is yet again reeling after the tragic death of another young person.

Take a moment and be thankful for all that you have today.  

It could all end tomorrow.  

Life is so uncertain.  


"I intend to live forever, or die trying."

  8. Three times the loss of a 12 grader in one of my classes and then to talk to their peers the next day in class. I remember each one so vividly. :(

  17. I stand back and just marvel at the words of Twain and Marx. Their take on the world we live in today hits the mark each time. Yup, it's my old spider web analogy... we dangle by such delicate threads. Hold those we love close.

  18. Hi Michelle, Powerful and serious. You are so right. I wonder if you saw the story on the national news about the tragic accident in Seattle between a Duck Boat and a Tour Bus on one of our old bridges? Five died and dozens were injured. Most of the ones who died were young and just starting at North Seattle College. We never know when our time will be up.
