Quick Check-In Tuesday April 26, 2011

Thanks Starbear and M for your sweet words and offers of support!  The Universe is so full!

In the last few days, I have had to stand up for myself in the face of a very uncomfortable situation at the emergency shelter where I was living.  The response of support I received from several different crisis lines and case workers was amazing.  No matter what your situation, you do NOT have to accept unacceptable behavior from those in authority positions over you.  Hmm, if only I'd learned this lesson years ago, LOL!

A quote from my favorite zen osho, Sokai of Haku-un Ji Zen Center, "Carry on, little soldier."

Love to all and gratitude for the beauty of life.

Dearest Kathleen,

I admire and applaud the courage and resilience you have! Your strength gives me and others strength. My heart, prayers and positive energy go out to you as you immerse yourself into this incredible journey. Allow my positive spirit fuel yours as you embrace this challenging road. You will prevail and your radiant, sparkling self will rise to the occasion.

With all my love, Angi

Angi and M,

Thank you so very much for your kind words. This journey has some interesing forks in the road. I have a feeling something big is going to come out of all of this.

Angi and I were talking and we think you should write a book! Have you ever thought about it?

There seems to be a consensus about me writing a book. I've connected up with My Sister's House support group here in the Sacramento area and they think the same thing, too. And so does the support group at the Elk Grove Food Bank. Hmmmmmm..... I'm sure that once I've got my disability managed better, I'm going to have to cave to the very positive peer pressure!

Oh, Kathleen, I sure hope you allow a book to flow from your glow and spirit. Sharing your experiences would shine a light on a travesty that is happening in our country. You are in my thoughts and prayers everyday. With all my love, Angi
