4. From my LIFE EXPERIENCES so far....mixed racial marriage, living outside the U.S.A., being homeless, getting a divorce, having a child die, being rejected by immediate family members, loving someone dearly who didn't love me...and that was ok, not being respected and/or not respecting others, learning where I end and you begin, choosing an unpopular spiritual view, have homosexial friends and close family members, being married more than once, living with a so-called incurable disease, having a parent die, having a close family member violently attacted and injured by respected authorities, having to stand up and speak out for what was the noble virtues of life all alone, being ignored when needing help, being old, being different physically, being poor, being wealthy, understasnding the confusion, stigma and
cruelty of mental illness and suicide of a family member. AND, There are even more.......'goodies'. I bless them all, all my life experiences...Thank you Life. Jan----------
