Most of my days are spent doing the things I love with people I love. Pictured clown noses are a case in point.  Other than the occasional dental cleaning or medical appointment, I spend most of my energy on the people and causes that are near and dear to my heart:

  • Loving on my grandkids
  • Hanging out with family and friends
  • Going to coffee or lunch with girlfriends
  • Teaching and coaching aspiring teachers and administrators
  • Advocating for people living with ALS and veterans
  • Encouraging everyone I meet to be be the best that they can be
  • Spreading a little joy

Now don’t be all jealous that I’ve bowed out of the rat race and you’re stuck on the gerbil wheel. I still have my share of struggles as I find myself in a battle for my life. Yet, that will not define me!

Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. James 1:2-4

I’m Forgiven and Free and not lacking anything
