Well…Finally! What a great day! What a beautiful celebration of American democracy! Very emotional ….and a long time coming.
I woke up this morning thinking about a good friend of mine. Shermie lives in a cool little “back house” at the beach. It is a welcoming place full of mementos of her life and her very professional photographs. She has a wonderful eye for placement and the walls of her home are something I study every time we visit.
Despite many obstacles in her life, Shermie is tireless in her role of doing good for others. For years she has worked full-time and performed acts of civic kindness and service like: running Bike Ride fundraisers, cooking for the needy, and this year collecting toys and puzzles for families who are home-bound during this endless covid confinement. She thrives with lots of things on her plate. She’s one of my heroes !!
So…back to her home. My favorite thing on her wall is a sign that reads:
I love it. Simple. To the point. I think there are a lot of people—- more than I realized, who are not embarrassed to say, “Nice matters.” I think it is why Joe Biden is our new President. It makes me happy. I feel grateful and my heart is more peaceful tonight.
I hope you feel better, too.
Here’s to a brighter future with more Truth!
Ciao for now…Patty ✌️💕❤️🤗
