Ohhhh....what a poem! Especially meaninful to me was her phrase,"What you do is as great as what warriors do". I read it to my daughter. We discount ourselves sometimes, and this was a reminder. I really needed such a thought today. Sam, you're a gem! NOW I can go and git to work! I'm ENERGIZED from the words of my friend! Thank you and have a fabulous day, yourself!

Elyse!
Happy to report that Lou is now happily in her beloved Minnesota with her children and a new love interest...! Letting go really benefitted. Now she's ready for the next chapter; and I'll bet it will be a good one. This 'transitioning' is a joy to be able to share with others. Your comments spur me on. THANK YOU, a hundred times, thank you!

You've got a point, there. I've never thought of that story like that....he was too burdened with 'things', perhaps? Hmmmm.

I think I know what you mean. I have a drawing of 'Kenya' from Kayla on our fridge. She and her family are there for the month and I miss them terribly. That drawing is precious. I'll keep it forever.

You are turning me on to his Wopila - (did I spell it right?) --- I mean I can understand the practice.  When my MIL died, her daughter and I met up in Florida at her condo and we simply boxed and called a Church that was having a huge garage sale.  We donated just about 80% of her items; the rest we split.  I mean there were pieces of furniture that were as brand new - there were clothes that we donated to a Women's workforce (gifting to those coming back into society from having a bad choice perse in life or fallen on bad times period and allowing them to dress professionally to attain a better position in life) I so believe in this Wopila - Lakota teaching.  I really do in many ways.  is why I resale in my little shoppe - and for a good price (better than those around me in that mall) - I believe in gifting.  Yes, it is a good thing - it is what I believe this world needs.  I'm so cheerful after reading your heartwarming account here today Darson ~ you light up my life with such Hope - I am moved by this --- okay one day, I may join in with this FlyLady but, for now, my life is too transitional so I will follow your good choices - you're a fine example of Grace and virtue before us.  Elyse  (and I grab a tissue for the memory here of your friend...that was a blessing you offered her)

That's what Jordan thought, too. He thought we were really lame for waiting two months...and, he was right! But we got it done. He had a fun time and now he can't be TOO much of a victim.
