How do you stay determined in the face of so much loss?
I accept that life isn’t easy. I have my faith…but I have a will to live, and that will comes from loving people.
If you have followed this blog, you know that Aunt Ruth’s answer to my question changed how I viewed my life. Loving people was Aunt Ruth’s anchor and her fuel. Love energized her, gave her purpose, and got her into the kitchen to test recipes she’d share with family and friends. Love was behind the wheel for her perpetual visits to the cemetery to manicure our family’s graves. Love got her out of bed to answer the phone to offer support and unconditional love.
Love was behind every single thing Aunt Ruth thought about doing or did. She inspired YOU too!
The ♥'s on the map are from EVERY place this blog has had a “hit” since it has been launched. Love has NO BOUNDARIES. Thank you for loving Aunt Ruth! More exciting news:
As the book gets closer to becoming available, we are thrilled to announce that we will be donating from our sales to The Intergenerational School, a free, high-performing public charter school with locations in Cleveland, Ohio, that has been nationally recognized for their innovative, intergenerational approach to learning. Their mission is to connect, create, and guide multigenerational communities of lifelong learners and spirited citizens. Aunt Ruth’s commitment to education and loving all people has found a wonderful partnership in www.TISonline.org
Here’s to Love and Aunt Ruth’s ingredients for a life well-lived!
