  1. If you don't think this is about you...you're wrong!

  2. Today is 9/11. It is hard to believe 20 years have gone past since that day. I wanted to a pay a small tribute to all those lost and all those still effected by that tragic day. 

    I have two personal connections to people who had it effected them a great deal. One friend lost a friend at the twin towers. Another friend (and former member) was a first responder.

      :candle: Thank you, Mary, this is a good idea. ❤️ 

      I remember seeing the smoke from my back yard, the feeling of pure terror as the gravity of the situation sank in.  I lost a classmate (a rookie firefighter who was just 22 years old when he lost his life) and a friend of mine lost her husband.  Another gal I went to High School with was a first responder and though she survived the initial event, she passed away a few years ago from cancer that was caused by 9/11.  

      We will never, NEVER forget.  

      RIP to MC, KK, and LR, as well as to all of the heroes who literally gave everything.

      Such a sad day. I was in middle school, in history class when it happened. Later, I had music class, and my teacher's husband was there in NYC when it happened. Luckily he was safe. but she was so scared the entire time.

      Rest in peace to all those who lost their lives on this day...:candle:

      This is wonderful. Thank you for this. I need to be reminded of some of these often.

  4. Never underestimate who you are. This is one of my favorite images. There is a beauty in it. I hope you all see it, too. :throb: :throb: :throb:

  6. There is still time to join our 2020 Holiday Buddies program!

    Hey, there everyone...we all know that for many of us, the holidays are very stressful. It can be anything from being mildly blue to having extreme difficulty of getting thru these next few weeks. Sometimes we need a little extra understanding and support.  :hug: 

    This is our third year with our Holiday Buddies program. If you haven't read about it, please take a look at our post describing it in the link below. It's main idea is that we can match two members together to help each other thru the stresses this holiday season brings. :unsure:

    The Holiday Buddies process will try to best match your needs with another member or even a staff member like me. :blink:  We will not turn anyone away, so if you would like a little extra support this holiday season, your Holiday Buddy is a few short screening questions away.

    Thank you for reading. :thanks:

  7. Here I go again...

    Think it is universal, we all struggle at one time or another. We doubt ourselves and feel so tired and do not like the progress we are making. If we yell it out loud, or keep it inside...we are not happy with our healing. It isn't fair that we must heal. It isn't fair we struggle so...but we do.

    I often share these picture quotes to remind us all that we deserve to heal. You do, I do, any person that has endured such awfulness does. I'm here to remind us all. We are worthy.

    Let me repeat...WE ARE WORTHY.

    I love you all in this community. If you reply or not, this post is for you. If you believe it or not, this post is for you. If you are struggling at the moment, this post is for you.

    Sitting with you. :throb:

  8. Thought for the day. I am an animal lover and animals can teach us so much. Tho a lion can be a fierce creature, they also have a beauty. They can also tell us something about life and what we've been thru.

    So today, the thought of the day comes from the mighty lion. :throb:

    6. Making mistakes and and learning from them

    10. Being worthy of support and healing

     

  13. Validation. We all need it and we all deserve it. Especially from ourselves. :throb:

    Did I catch your attention?

  16. In just a couple hours, it will be the U.S. holiday known as Veteran's Day. I am one to reflect and pay tribute to those who have volunteered to protect our country. My father, uncle, and grandfather served proudly, and I often think of them on such holidays.

    Speaking to a couple staff members earlier, I realize that we have community members and staff who are veterans! I want to take a moment to honor their service. If these veterans respond or not, I want them to know that I thank them for all the freedoms we know.

    Thank you. :throb:
