1. Good writing! I could feel the emotions, which triggered memories in my own childhood. Yes, those experiences taught me lessons that carried into adulthood. Thank you for sharing yours.

    1. Yvonne, thanks for stopping by! Like you, I’m so thankful for the lessons I learned in childhood that carry over to my life today, and Rita’s post refreshed them for me too.

  2. Rita, your story communicates so beautifully (I’m not surprised) and reminds me that in life it’s not about me or any one person, for that matter. It’s community. Together we can accomplish more. Thanks for that nugget of wisdom. I have such fond memories of our time in Hawaii… I’m glad we were both able to be there.

  3. I belong to two women’s groups – church’s Baptist Women and our village’s Valier Women’s Club. The opportunities to serve our community through both of them is so rewarding, and making new lifelong friends gives me a support group that I can rely on too.
