Lessons from mom

Take It Upon Yourself

While my son and I helped dad pack things up, after my dad was mentally and emotionally able to sell the property and mobile home in south Florida where we’d first landed after relocating in 1985 from West Virginia, I found several things that answered some questions I’d had for many years.

Along with several diary pages that mom had written in the 1960s and 1970s, I found an unsigned letter to her that made me question which is more important taking advice from family or from friends.

The statement in the letter that got me was, “I’m disappointed in you that you feel that your friends understand you better than your family (and me).”

I have an idea of who the letter is from, but I am not sure. It was typed, single spaced on one sheet of paper.

The Dalai Lama’s Guide to Happiness

The Purple Almond

First, I’d like to apologize for the lateness of this post. I had a lot going on today and yesterday, preventing me from sitting down and devoting time to my blog, as I do every Sunday and Monday. Instead of skipping this week all together, I wanted to post a quick motivation piece and who better to inspire than His Holiness, The Dalai Lama.
