~~A beautiful day, and yes, adifferentkindofstorybook.com was there! It was a cool and sunny day here in Kentucky. This festival brings in storytellers from across the nation.
I took my 88-year-old friend and mentor, Dr. Baute and our 87-year-old friend Charlie Eyers with me. We are all storytellers and we had a ball!

~~Over the past few weeks, adifferentkindofstorybook.com has been blessed with 4 very learning and growing opportunities. Each event had its own lessons to be learned. As I look into my rear-view mirror, I see several areas where I have grown AND several that I still need to work on. I believe that ANY day I can learn something new is a good day, so not having all the answers doesn’t discourage me. No, it challenges me!

~~Earlier today four of our church brothers got together to do some clean up around our church. This coming weekend is the Roots and Heritage Festival here in Lexington. The festivities passes by our church, so we will have a display set up for the community to come and visit.
The three men and I are over fifty years old, so we were working hard getting the job done. Slow and steady! The emphasis on SLOW!!!(smile) We got it done though!

~~I had a really great time at this event. I’m so glad I went. I had a good time hanging out with my friend, Dr. Baute and his son David. I met a lot of wonderful people and I do believe that we planted many good seeds towards the future. Something in my spirit tells me that we might have even bridged a few gaps, and to think I almost didn’t go! I’m an optimist, but I’m also a realist, but that’s another story.

~~A few months ago, my friend Danielle asked me if I would be willing to participate in a Drug Court Conference at the end of the summer. I agreed, thinking I had plenty of time to prepare for it.
As she told me about the conference and what my role would be, my heart began to beat a little faster. This was no small thing, but I have been training myself to see things as opportunities instead of obstacles, so I found my spirit racing with anticipation.

~~~~What a day!   August 10th, 2017
My time spent with the Blind Veterans Group on the 10th was beyond words. I had no doubt that these brave men and women had courage. They answered Uncle Sam’s call and served our country with pride.
I must say that when I saw how brave and courageous they are today, with their disability, I was in awe! If you closed your eyes and listened to the group you’d NEVER suspect they were legally blind. They were laughing and “cutting up” with each other and having a good ole time.
