Whaddya Say Friends

The North American Black Bear sayin:
to Dr Lynn Rogers,
"Thanks For Working To Get Legislature To Listen"

for information on how you can
take a STAND and effect change
Let your voices be heard
for these magnificent bears
that this brilliant researcher has spent his life
walking with and researching
and educating these
North American Black Bears
and will continue!
We will benefit now
generations to come!
visit today,
click on the live cam and be entertained by
Lily and her tribe of babes
Faith and Jason
as they tumble and cry and holler
in the den
then click on the links to see how you
can add your name to the petition for
of those bears that are brightly ribboned
to alert hunters to
and then
click on the links for those
who have the power
to make it against the law
to shoot.

So, it's morning and the suitcase is at the door
the coffee is poured
soon I am headed to Tampa International Airport
on my way to MN
where the weather is a bit chilly
according to friends there.
It is the kind of weather that
a bear enjoys,
and snowy
I hear.
So I will bundle up
with an attitude of great gratitude
fly the friendly skies
HOPING to see a
North American Black Bear
to let them know
some powerful warriors
taking a stand for them.
Faith, patience, kindness and compassion
are all things we need when trying to get things done
I think.
When trying to get along, when trying to get things done
folks get excited, they get stressed.
Even in the best of times
stress works on people who want the same things.
Feelings get hurt, words get said that later wish they could be taken back, misunderstandings
lack of understanding.
Knee-jerk reactions and overall chaos can break out.
We often do best when we are mindful,
mindful that each is walking a unique road
that can only be partially understood by another
and only then if we are walking alongside the person
traveling that road.
So when walking today,
on whatever journey or mission you are on;
keep in mind
that each of us
in our own way are walking a path
that is sometimes new and different;
sometimes flat land and sometimes hilly and uncertain.
We would do well to take a deep breath
before each step
and try to be mindful
that the person we speak to might have 3,000
things running through their brain
and one heavy thing sitting on their heart.
Just sayin,
we don't know what we don't know.
One thing I do know is this:
There are blessings all around us
I sometimes am amazed that we do not give the good moments as much attention and praise and time
as we give the rotten or bad moments
in the re-telling ...
I also know
that Dr Seuss was just outright brilliant!

"Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, Nothing is going to get better. It's not." — Dr. Seuss

So you see, sometimes we must look to the brilliance that resides within and if we can't find it right away,
it is perfectly ok to look to others to light the way!


So as I head out the door for places unknown,
I wish you enough to have the best day,
and I leave you this quote to move you through the path of your day>>>

"Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter, and those who matter don't mind." Dr Seuss

The fire is burning, the sage is filling the air, with thoughts on the wind to all, and HOPE for all who enter here and those who know who they are!
I HOPE you will fill the emails and desks with your letters to

Walk In Beauty,
author of
Healing Heartaches, Stories of Loss and Life

Hello Dr. SES and all of the bloggers. Guess some are at work, sleeping or just doing their thang. Words of wisdom today to live by. In other words dont hit that send button until you reread what you just wrote and be sure it is what you want regret. I have received several emails from people who I am sure regrets they sent it and if they could read it again I often wonder if they would still stand by the first one. Oh well, hope the weather clears up and you have a safe, friendly journey and a great success. We wish you the best. Stay true to you and go for it. Best wishes to you, the policemen and women, the soldiers every day who are protecting us so we can live in the beautiful country we live in. God Bless all.
