Just some thoughts...

Every day, as I write Poetiquejustis, I pray it will be a blessing to someone.
Today, I hope it is you.

It's So Becoming!

What is genius-but the power of expressing a new individuality?

Elizabeth Barrett Browning

Being a grandmother has its perks.

You have an excuse to play Barbies again without people wondering if it might be time to start shopping for an adult daycare center for you.

Hot fudge sundaes become a “bonding experience” instead of a lack of willpower.

And there is absolutely no reason to try to conjure up bright and charming small talk because grandkids are happy to carry the conversation- and carry it they do from unicorns to the universe if you just sit quietly and listen.

Some people like going to planetariums and watching the stars through a giant telescope.

Me? I like watching people grow- getting brighter and stronger and more in focus each passing day.

I like watching them becoming who they will be, no matter what age or who they are now.

We are all “becoming”.

And part of "becoming" is being willing to help others become.

Clearing the rocks out of the path so people can move ahead

Being the bridge between places they are and they places they want to go.

Not a bad job, right?

Good news: there are vacancies!

Wanted: people who will encourage, listen, and praise. Immediate openings in a hurt and troubled world. No travel necessary. You can work from home or your present job.

Now go! You are ready to do that job and you are needed!

And that’s poetiquejustis.
