I am here because others have given me hope, love and kindness. I can never say I got to this point without the assistance and support of others. My life has been beautiful mosaic of tiles of experience put together by people who have taught me through love, pain, tears, joys and kindness. It is with gratitude that I offer this blog to the people and lessons they have taught me how to live the journey with love, kindness and hope. One memory that always comes back to me is in a song that I sang as a child that basically sums it all up "No man is an Island, No man walks alone". My hope is that through this blog I can pass along some of the wisdom I was taught and tried to integrate into my life. My hope is that you write back and share your wisdom so that we can all learn to live life with hope, love, kindness and a spoonful of forgiveness. Wishing you the best. Rita

I was always told that I came from a good stock. I always thought that this meant I came from strong people who came before me. It is with the passing of time that we look at things differently. I now think of it like " soup" they lied the foundation or made the stock and what I have chosen through the years to add to that stock has added the flavor to the "soup" or stock.

I think in my most difficult times in my life what carried me through was thee thought that tomorrow will be a better day. Hope,

On the days that I felt sorry for myself and was sitting in my own self pity, the kindness of other is what pulled me out of my own world. Kindness.

Love is what I always hope to give to others through kindness. Some days I am better at it than others days.

I was raised by three women. All three women were sisters. Like all sisters they were alike in many ways, but Yet were so different in many ways. From each I learned about life.Each one of these women are the spirit that lives within me. All of them are gone now, but they live on through the lesson they taught me by loving example how to life this life with love, hope and kindness. They are the good stock I refer to in my earlier post. These three women were my stock or my soup!! They names were Rita ( my mother who died when I was 7), Frances ( the mother who raised me), Evelyn ( my mother who I never lived with but Loved me as her own). I devote this blog to these women who taught me how to live the lessons of love, hope and kindness. }
