Thoughts - November 16, 2016

"Some say we are responsible for those we love. Others know we are responsible for those who love us. " Nikki Giovanni
Be gentle with your loved ones. Speaking for myself, there are times I take people who love me for granted. I put them too far down on the "to do" list. So often we are busy - with survival, taking care of ourselves, putting out figurative fires, stretching ourselves thin. We neglect our nearest and dearest.....those very souls who pray for us, help us out, who love us unconditionally. These folks are our oldest friends, our family members, someone we befriended a time or two and they took our actions seriously....Nikki Giovanni, poet and teacher and wise person, thank you for this reminder. - Beth Almond Ford
