Welcome Sparklers!

My word for 2021 is Present
The word present has multiple meanings, most of which concern giving (a present is a gift) or time (the present is right now).
The verb present might mean to deliver something like a speech, or perform something like a play.

My word for 2020 — 20/20 Vision
Vision Board - Creating a sacred space that displays what I love.
Vision - Small home with things I love.
**We did move to town - it was a good move!

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.

    Thank You for sending Me the Spark Garden Gnome from Noraspat. How do You know it was meant for Me? I have not contacted Pat in regards to this yet. I Love the Little Gnome. It is very Cute.
    I appreciate You sending it on Her behalf. I wish there was a way that You could send her Note that was meant for Me so I would know what she said. If You can't do worry about it. Thank You Again. God Blessings to You and Everyone. Have a Wonderful Week. Take Care. Hugs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
