The Need to Hope: Reflections of One "Ordinary Face" :-)

It has been a challenging week in the United States.   The U.S. Federal Government continues to be shut down as millions are impacted by the political brinkmanship.  I have been assessing it throughout the day and assessing the Worldwide impact.       

It is not easy to be thankful--and it is easy to quit.    This is as I remember the 300  who perished trying to escape the misery of Eritrea.    The need to be thankful is ever so important as I continue onward with the on-going odyssey and take comfort in these thoughts that underscores what is truly within the realm of the possible:

Our journey into consciousness of wealth begins with the realization
that we have already arrived!
- Michael Bernard Beckwith
Many a man curses the rain that falls upon his head,
and knows not that it brings abundance to drive away the hunger.
- Saint Basil
Thank you, God, for this good life
and forgive us if we do not love it enough.
- Garrison Keillor

& Remembering This:

Age wrinkles the body; quitting wrinkles the soul.~ Douglas MacArthur
