Love & Life & God

In the last week I have been touched by the story of prayer. I have begun to pray at all different times of the day - to thank God for what is and pray for what I believe should be. I came to this point after reading a book "Left to tell" by Immaculée Ilibagiza about the Rwandan holocaust, where were we and why did we not help? The question of why reverberates over and over. I do not know but I do believe God listened to her prayers and saved her. I have been blessed in my life and will thank God each day for the love of my family,friends,husband and son. There are too many days that we take for granted and in an instant all can be lost. For today take that moment to thank God for the love in your life and pray for love to touch those who need it most.

Is the time we spend alone, really ours? I'm not sure I've ever been alone, maybe a few years between college and married life but even then I had a room-mate. I have come to believe that women need to be alone to become the independent force they can be. I spent a couple of hours at the movies the other day, alone. I had never gone to the movies by myself, I never had the gumption. What would people think? well I need alone time and movies make me happy so I went in between school hours. I LOVED every moment. "In the land of women" proved to be a true delight. Just the right amount of escape for my life at the moment.

My life at the moment is filled with husband,son, clients, staff. I feel I never get an alone moment. Take it from me - It is perfectly OK to take an afternoon and enjoy your life - your alone time doing what you want. Take that time and enjoy!

So many times someone has shaken my hand and my impression of them immediately went south. Know what I'm saying? the wimpy limp handshake. Most of the time it is women that I have this encounter with. I don't think anyone ever taught them how to shake a a hand, not that I was taught. Not sure where I learned however I have a very good handshake, firm not too firm and I look at my recipient. What peeves me the most is doctors. When you meet a doctor for the first time, usually you are trusting them with a personal part of yourself, a handshake would be in order. Well sad to say this is not the norm. Most doctors I have met do not offer the handshake. I have surprised some by offering mine. Are they germaphobic? Well last night I met a new vet who immediately offered a handshake, wow and she was a woman with a great handshake. Maybe the tides are turning.

We all know high school can be all about drama. Way over my high school years, I do not miss it at all. Today I thoroughly enjoyed a high school drama, a musical that is. I have a few high school students working for me that happen to be in their drama club. I took my 6 year old son to the matinee of Once Upon a Mattress. We loved it! Their performance was filled with beautiful singing, great acting and a bit of humor. Well worth the admission fee. Looking for an enjoyable afternoon, give your local high school drama club a call and see when their next performance is scheduled.
