There are so many things to explore, be grateful for and love in this world, why are there some who would rather control or bully their way through life? Are these types really comfortable in their own body, or do they get their kicks by making others be at the whim of their ideas, mood, likes, dislikes, and basically try to mold others into their bullying, controlling mold.
It would seem that the divine made us all in his image, however each different, for us to cultivate that difference into a caring compassionate, growing learning about each other, and not a put down, bully, controlling attitude. It would also seem that these bullies are really the issue and not the ones they are trying to control. After all if the bully said jump off a bridge would you do it, absolutely not, then, just walk away and acknowledge that you are better for doing so.

And so it is!

I am in the process of becoming an Associate of the School Sisters of Notre Dame, SSND, who taught me in Saint Paul Minnesota in the 70’s and I now visit Mankato, Minnesota every so often to visit. It is a blessing to go there and have so many sisters in one place, who knew I could have over a 150 grandmothers in one place! They take very good care of me. I sometimes wonder if my path had been slightly different, I would have probably became a Sister working in HealthCare. Being an Associate helps me keep connected with SSND in another way that gives me peace and joy. some of the pictures in the video might look familiar, as I have posted photos I have taken on the Mankato Hill as well.

Truth, the state of being in accord with fact or reality.

I am a facts kind of person. Emotion and feelings are really not something I deal with well. For example tonight while talking to my husband, he gets all emotional about his friend Dan, who has cancer, who I might add is doing well. My husband gets all emotional about it, as I am more practical in my response, or am I? Although I consider myself to be a loving, caring person, I am not going to worry because God is there holding Dan in palm of his hand. I have the general impression that I cannot get all crazy and emotional every time some bad or terrible happens to someone. This may be my reality, but not someone elses. Their true reality is probably very different. I may be trying to hide those bad feelings and teach myself a different truth.

I find that truth is in the reality of the teller and the receiver. There is a choice to be made in believing and going with truth, or challenging it based on our background and beliefs.

In the meantime, I will try to be more in the present to realize that, just like my husband, there are different opinions, feelings and judgements that all can be true in the eye of the beholder.
