  1. It’s a tough pill to swallow. Every situation (challenge), properly perceived, is an opportunity. Patty, was there one particular life lesson, or top three?

  2. I have three examples:
    Two which are positive – Jesus, (for we see Him in others everyday) and
    Gurumayi Chidvilasananda, who lives and speaks a wisdom for us all.

    Negative — Won’t name on a public forum, but was left with this impression: Madonna does not sleep in a cone bra.

  3. Patty, often, it’s the people far from life’s spotlight that are the everyday heroes and good examples. I often wonder if “balance” is impossible.
