  1. Barb, I love every one of these! One that really struck me, though, was "V is for valuing the ordinary". That describes me! I love my "ordinary" life! Thanks for sharing your wisdom!

  2. What a surprise, Barb...A poem! (ha) I especially liked the line, "Allowing others to share in our lives." Most of us need to let more people "in."

  3. Simply loved it!! Is it OK if I share it with my colleagues and students - of course I'll give credit to you.

  4. So true! Happy Thanksgiving to you. I especially like "N".

  5. Hi Barb,
    How inspiring! Like Linda, I especially like "N," noticing the good in others. You have an exceptional gift for doing that!
    Happy Thanksgiving,
