So today, I finally said what was bothering me to someone. And it feels so much better. The thing is though, I knew all along that it would make me feel better if I got it off my chest. But I could never bring myself to it. What I want to know is, is how do others face confrontation? Do they cower away like i so often do? I'm sure its not just me out there that feels this way.
Speaking of relief, there is one thing I am not so relieved about. The upcoming elections. Is anyone else fearful of where/how our nation could end up? My hand is raised. There is so much information out right now. It's crazy. And the more I read, the more fearful I become. One thing is for sure though, EVERYONE SHOULD VOTE! Don't waste your chance to speak up this election year.
Tomorrow, I have to be up super early to be at the Alzheimer's Walk. Carlyle was/is one of the top sponsors this year thanks to all the staff and residents hard work. There is one resident in particular that helped with many of our trivia fundraisers. I found out today at lunch that she passed away this morning. She was always (up until her final day!) so involved in things in our community. Even yesterday I saw her up in our offices and I said hello, never knowing that would be the last time I saw her. My prayers and thoughts are with her family. I was blessed to know her and be around her influence in our community. She will be missed.
