I have said oh so many times that I am an optimist. I have spent my life thus far being one. I can find the pony buried under the pile of manure. In lieu of a pony, I can find the hoof prints, follow their trail, and find the pony. You see, there is always SOMETHING good that comes of our sorrows. Bare minimum our own sorrows and losses can be shared with someone else going through their own sorrows and losses. Empathy and shared burdens happen as a result. I entitled my blog Believe Anyway for a reason. I need to remind myself every time I write that I am called to Believe Anyway. I am called to do that and more. I believe that we all are called to do more. This quote by Mother Teresa is no doubt familiar to most of you. But I believe that it bears repeating.

I am a perennial optimist
I Am Becoming the Me I Was Born To BeAs I journey through this part of my life I have discovered my next mountain. The key is to be the me I want to be in the world, as my gift back to God.
