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!"

    It's Friday once again! I think these jokes will be just what the doctor ordered to tickle your funny bone because they're actually quite "humerous."

    A mother complained to the family doctor that her daughter laid in bed all day long, and all she would eat is yeast and car wax." "What will happen to her, doctor?"
    He replied, "Eventually she will rise and shine."

    Funny medical one-liners, exactly as typed by medical secretaries:

    Patient has left her white blood cells at another hospital.

    Patient has chest pain if she lies on her left side for over a year.

    On the second day the knee was better and on the third day it disappeared.

    The patient has been depressed since she began seeing me in 1993.

    Discharge status: Alive, but without my permission.

    Patient has two teenage children, but no other abnormalities.


    What did the man say to the x-ray technician after swallowing some coins?
    A: "Do you see any change in me?"

    Why did the doctor tell his nurse to be very quiet while walking past the supply cabinet?
    A: So she wouldn't wake the sleeping pills.


    Morris, an 82 year-old man, went to his doctor to get a physical. A few days later the doctor saw Morris walking down the street with a gorgeous young woman on his arm.

    During his follow-up visit the following week, the doctor greeted Morris and said, "You're really doing great, aren't you?!"
    Morris replied, "Just doing what you said, Doc. Get a hot mamma and be cheerful."
    The doctor replied, "I didn't say that. I said, you've got a heart murmur. Be careful!"

    Finally, here's your Tip of the Day . . . "Never go to a doctor whose office plants have died." - Erma Bombeck

    If these jokes have given you a headache, take two aspirin, and text me in the morning.

    Enjoy your weekend!
