Keep it Real Wednesday

Presidents Day, sort of
In honor of President’s Day this week, I wanted to share a story.
A few years back, I asked Rosemary who her favorite President of the United States was.
I never did get a direct answer but in typical Rosemary fashion, there was a story that followed.
I thought it appropriate to share this week.
These are Rosemary’s words…
“I have lived through 17 Presidents, a hand full of wars in which American lives were lost, the civil rights movement, the assassination of a president, and our country being attacked on our soil. I have given birth to 3 children and miscarried 3 children.
I have let many people in my life and allowed others to leave when it was time. Through all the ups and downs and pains and hardships, there are some things that remain constant in my life.
You may live to be as old as me one day but make sure you are wise with your time and be good to others.
Love each other and don’t be afraid to need each other. Needing someone is not a source of weakness, it is a source of strength to know our limits, and to reach out for help.
Stop judging others if their story is different from yours. Don’t be afraid of people different than you, instead learn from them.
We all have battles we fight such as loss, illnesses, and ailments but we all have the strength to get through if we nurture our bodies physically, keep our moral character strong, and remember to love.
Being kind, loving, and good – that’s what it is all about.
God loves you no matter what. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise”
