Boneyard Beach - Florida

Good Tuesday Morning -

The older I get, the more I realize that you can't do for other people what they won't do for themselves.  If they don't see the "good" around them in their life, you won't convince them of it.  If they don't see their own value, their own strength, you won't convince them of it.  I'm not a "pollyanna", in the sense that I don't think that all problems are solved by positive thinking - eventually, you have to do. 

Why do I bring this up?  Because in many ways, to be able to "do" for others, you have to have your own well to draw from.  If you don't see good in your life, it's going to be hard to do good for others.  If you don't have the energy, you can't give energy to others. 

To those who say "they give it all to (insert here)", does that mean you are giving them your best?  Because if you aren't taking good care of yourself, how well are you taking care of others?

This image is a milestone on my time in Florida - this was the first day my daughter was out of the hospital and able to be "out" on her own power.
