July Thought of the Month

"God gave us all wings, it's up to us to choose to fly."

~ Unknown

Flying is one of the most common dreams people have. Interpreters say it symbolizes freedom and power, or the desire to escape the things troubling us in our waking lives. From childhood we watched birds winging their way through the skies above us, maybe even wishing we could join them.

June Thought of the Month

"Forget your troubles, come on get happy. You'd better chase all your cares away."

~ Judy Garland

In the face of almost daily mass shootings, wars and threats of war, toxic politics, and worse, it's hard to find a reason to feel good about what's ahead for us. I always try to balance the negative input I get every day with something lighthearted or fun. The other day I came across the song Get Happy from the musical Summer Stock.

February Thought for the Month

"With compassion one becomes courageous. Compassion brings triumph when attacked; it brings security when maintained."

~ Tao Te Ching

We have all seen moments of compassion that inspire us thanks to the reality of camera phones everywhere. Rarely do these moments come from the people we elected to govern us. How many times have we thought or said, why won't they stand up for what's right? Why aren't they doing what we elected them to do?

January Thought of the Month

"I'd rather attempt to do something great and fail than to attempt to do nothing and succeed."

~ Robert H. Schuller

We're starting a brand new year, and people are making resolutions for the things they want to accomplish in 2023. Some probably haven't because resolutions never worked for them before. Whatever way you've chosen, I hope you'll reconsider. Not making the traditional New Year's resolutions, but something hopefully better and more effective — take steps toward the goals you were born to achieve.
