Cheering each other on

"I only went out for a walk and finally concluded to stay out till sundown, for going out, I found, was really going in." ~John Muir

We have the most exquisite blue sky where I live.  I read of research which indicates that SADS (Seasonal Affective Disorder) is more likely caused by lack of blue sky than by lack of sun.  Regardless, the blue sky background for the dark green of the evergreen trees is just breathtaking.  I had a long walk today.  Dwane was involved in an activity I deemed to be safe, so I went longer than usual.  I had the thrill of hearing geese honking, as they travel south for the winter.  What a lovely, haunting sound.  I wondered at the effort of honking while also flying, and my daughter told me of a lovely thought:  the geese are cheering each other on!  I choose to believe this is true, and that is what I would like from this blog -- that we who are caregivers or anyone dealing with a  life difficulty are cheering each other on:  by reading and sharing good ideas, by caring, and by supporting each other.  Let us follow the good example of the geese and cheer each other on.
