Come to your edge-reach outside your comfort zone 🤗🙄

“COME TO THE EDGE, he said. 

WE CAN’T, WE’RE AFRAID! They responded. 

COME TO THE EDGE, he said. 

WE CAN’T, WE WILL FALL! They responded. 

COME TO THE EDGE, he said. 

AND SO THEY CAME.  And he pushed them AND THEY FLEW!

People. People important to you, people unimportant to you cross your life, touch it with love or carelessness and move on. There are people who leave you and you breathe a sigh of relief and wonder why you ever came into contact with them. There are people who leave you and you breathe a sigh of remorse and wonder why they had to go away and leave such a gaping hole. Children leave parents, parent leave friends. Acquaintances move on. Friends love and move on. You think of the many who have moved into your hazy memory. You look on those present and wonder. I believe this is all part of a master plan. People move in and out of our lives, and each leaves his mark on the other. You find you are made up of bits and pieces of all who ever touched your life, and you are more because of it, and you would be less if they had not touched you. So far this is who I know that I am... PS I am a Spanish teacher (lucky enough to teach grade K-8!) living in the Chicago area, married to a handsome, intelligent and loving man, and I enjoy exercising and any thing that makes me laugh or smile!
