My word for 2019 was LISTEN
Empathic listening is a way of listening and responding to another person that improves mutual understanding and trust.
**The Set-aside Prayer: from (DJBTOO— Donna)
Help me set aside everything I know, and everything I think I know, for an open mind and new experiences.

My word for 2018 was JOY!
Finding Joy in the journey. It was a very joyful year!

My word for 2017 was HOPE
I have hope in my heart for all good things personally and spiritually. I have hope for a world at peace.

My word for the year 2016 was ADVENTURE !
It was a good word and forced me to step out of my comfort zone many times. Some adventures were with friends, some with family, some alone and many that I will always cherish.

From: Brave Enough by Cheryl Strayed
Nobody will protect you from your suffering. You can't cry it away or eat it away or starve it away or walk it away or punch it away or even therapy it away. It's just there, and you have to survive it. You have to endure it. You have to live through it and love it and move on and be better for it and run as far as you can in the direction of your best and happiest dreams across the bridge that was built by your own desire to heal. Therapists and friends can help you along the way, but the healing--the genuine healing, the actual real-deal, down-on-your-knees-in-the-mud change--is entirely and absolutely up to you.

This is part of Fra Giovanni's Christmas Prayer
"I salute you! There is nothing I can give you which you have not; but there is much that, while I cannot give, you can take.
No heaven can come to us unless our hearts find rest in it today. Take Heaven.
No peace lies in the future which is not hidden in the present moment. Take Peace.
The gloom of the world is but a shadow; behind it, yet within our reach is joy. Take Joy!"

    Why were all the corn stalks afraid of the farmer's son, Jimmy?
    Because Jimmy cracks corn, and he don't care.

    What do you get if you cross an ear of corn with a cow?
    Corned beef.

    How much does a pirate pay for corn at the farmer's market?
    About a buccaneer.

    What do you get when a farm truck spills all of its corn on the freeway?
    Creamed corn.

    What did one ear of corn say to the other ear of corn?
    Don't look now, but I think the farmer is stalking us.

    Why should you be very careful of what you say on a farm?
    the corn has ears, the potatoes have eyes, and the beans stalk.

    Now why didn't you laugh at any of today's jokes? Oh, I know . . .
    they were too corny!

    Have a wonderful weekend!

    In an office:
    Would the person who took the step ladder yesterday please bring it back or further steps will be taken.

    Outside a photographer's studio:
    Out to lunch. If not back by five, out for dinner also.

    Notice in a dry cleaner's window:
    Anyone leaving their garments here for more than 30 days will be disposed of.

    Seen during a conference:
    For anyone who has children and doesn't know it, there is a day care on the first floor.

    Notice in a country field:
    The farmer allows walkers to cross the field for free, but the bull charges.

    Sign on a repair shop door:
    We can repair anything (Please knock hard on the door, the bell doesn't work.)

    Sign outside a secondhand shop:
    We exchange anything - bicycles, washing machines, etc.
    Why not bring your wife along and get a wonderful bargain.

    Enjoy your weekend!
