I Like Your Courage

**THROWBACK POST**

April 23, 2013

This young lady right here, the one holding the Sun ….

In my “Compliment” note tonight she wrote, “I like your courage to not give up.” WOW! Both of these little people in my life are so full of wisdom and are so intuitive …. They are part of my purpose and I part of their purpose … We are a Team indeed.

I’ve been sick with some kinda crud since last Thursday and these two have been awesome … Made my eyes sweat ….

Brand New Shirt and Rosey

June 19 2017:

I have a favorite shirt from 2013. It’s falling apart in the front. The nylon is disintegrating and now it’s a see-through shirt! Oops!

I had this great idea to wear it backward and it’d be like a brand new shirt. Once I did that, I realized I’ve been wearing it backwards for four years.

But, hey!! I’ve got a “new” shirt now!!! 😳😂

June 22 2017:

Today’s adventure! Rosey the car says “Thank You” Team TLC! I say, “Thank You” Surf Thru for the free Ultimate!! We ultimately enjoyed it!!!

Sweet Aroma and Savor Each Bite and Powerful Drum Circle

June 4 2017:

No utensils needed once cut into wedges. Breathe in the pure and sweet aroma. Use fingers and slowly savor each bite. Lick fingers when done. Mindful eating is like the bliss of a good, long soak in a warm bath. Ahhhhhhhh!! xoxo

Thomas and I are incredibly grateful for this amazing dinner, the wonderfully kind volunteers, Reno Buddhist Center, and Moon Rabbit Cafe!

We so very much enjoyed Shanghai Summer Moon Rabbit Cafe Dinner June 3rd 5 to 8 pm … A love infused Pay-What-You-Can Cafe.

For me, vegetable wontons, veggie and tofu kabob, roasted corn, sesame/ginger Asian slaw, enjoyed with a refreshing watermelon spritzer and finished with an amazing scoop of pistachio ice cream. Yum!!

For Thomas, all of the same except he had crab artichoke rangoon, teriyaki chicken kabob and mango sorbet to finish.

Grateful, grateful. Thank you! xoxo
