Jane Love Back

Everyone who knows me gets to know and feel my goal for unconditional love. I have so much to give and am greatful for every person and relationship I encounter. There is so much to learn and entertainment from one another.


This past week I encountered a mirror of love, and will be forever greatful to my dear friends, my new friends, my peers, my fellow team members, and my family.


Personally, I have retreated to the cave. I am in search for truth, and the beauty in this outcome. I have nothing but love for my family and only want the best. Know that mother and cub are doing well and are resting. I will not be here as often, but will update weekly.

Love, Jane

Autumn Morning and Updates



Maxx and I went on a walk this autumn morning and enjoyed the crisp cold air. We played in the leaves and found 4 new rocks and one of the biggest leaves we have gathered yet. Then came home to our home made turkey chili and cornbread we had started before we headed out.

Quick updates: These weeks have been full and fast. We had our first Parent/Teacher conference with Miss Donkel. Maxx had raving reviews...and it was very beautiful to hear her describe our lover and how his days go at school. So proud. Playdate with a friend. Crafting our fingers away helping with things that will be for sale at the holiday fair. This past Friday evening we joined several classes for the autumn martinmas lantern walk. We watched a beautiful puppet play and then walked and sang songs arround the school. That was fun. Maxx has been helping me prepare many soups (potato, rainbow soup, pinto bean soup, lentil and garbanzo bean soup, and chili is what we have so far) that we are storing in the freezer for the upcoming cold days. Thanksgiving is just around the bend and I am in the deepths of food retail preperations for the big eating holidays that are on there way. School, work, and Miss Shannon...we are enjoying this autumn and packing it full. Today the signs of a new season... old man winter sprinkled snow on us, with more to come this week.

Happy Birthday, Sister!!!


Hey, Happy Birthday, Sister...
As we observe your birthday today,
Your yummy cake and gifts don't matter much.
These common things aren't really you,
Ribbons, paper hats and such.

We celebrate a Beauty who
Brings love & happiness to everyone,
Someone who gives more than she gets,
And fills our lives with joy and fun.
So Happy Birthday, Deana, and maanny moooore!

We hope you make it to three hundred and two,
Because we cannot even dream
What life would be like without you.

I hope you have one magnificent day, dear sister!!!

Hope


I have heard so much about hope and change for the past 2 years...and then in the past few days it has heightened. Not to be negative...but how sad that so many have to see this in a politician's campaign-it was great marketing. How beautifully spoken and what amazing words this politician has.

Personally not a political fan...right nor left are the answer...and would be surprised if through policy there would truly be change.

One thing I have noticed is you would think it is the winter holiday season already...with how nice my fellows have been. How amazing it would be if everyone could keep this spirit...no matter where you got your spark.
I still have hope in humanity.
In this uplifting spirit, I see...
...is what gives me hope.

Hope
**by Emily Dickinson

Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul,
And sings the tune--without the words,
And never stops at all,

And sweetest in the gale is heard;
And sore must be the storm
That could abash the little bird
That kept so many warm.

I've heard it in the chillest land,
And on the strangest sea;
Yet, never, in extremity,
It asked a crumb of me.
