One book I have been reading is, “The Doctor Wore Petticoats; Women Physicians of the Old West,” by Chris Enss.  Those ladies had to be strong and resilient!

So here’s a question:  What qualities do you value about yourself and others?

Published by lifehelps

I am like a rich tapestry, full of texture and color. I'm a musician, composer, poet, gardener, homemaker and friend. I worked as anLCSW for 22 years; as a socialworker for 26 years all told. Before that, I was a rehabilitation teacher. My passion is to come alongside others; to empower and bless them. That is why you will find plenty of variety in my blog. Two very important things to know about me is that I am a life-long learner - An explorer and sojourner. I also belong to the Lord Jesus...now, before you get tweeked out: I am not saying I am "religious." There is a huge difference between all of the rules and empty practice that often gets associated with Christianity and the kind of life that comes from being in a relationship with the loving God. May you find encouragement, inspiration, insight, good ideas and a laugh or two as you read my posts and comments.

  1. I really like your blog! The stories about your animals are great, as is your poetry.
    A couple things I really value about myself and others is compassion for others and a sense of humor.

    1. Hello and welcome. Compassion and humor truly are good qualities. A couple I would add are integrity and hospitality in its true sense: The ability to create a space where people can be authentic; a gift for honoring each person. I also admire excellence. One thing about the women in “The Doctor
      Wore Petticoats” that caught my attention was that so many of them turn tragedy into success. One, for example, lost her whole family to Typhoid, so was determined to care for people who were ill.
