“For now we see through a glass, darkly...”
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
Today is White Cane Safety Day, a day which receives too little recognition, so by all means, do your homework.

|Remembering Our Babies: This special day of
Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance is October 15th of every year.
This site was created to provide support, education, and awareness for
those who are suffering or may know someone who suffered a miscarriage,
an ectopic pregnancy, a still birth, or the loss of an infant.
Hmm. My first and last pregnancies ended in miscarriage, plus I had two more sandwiched between the births of my seven children. After all these years I continue to mourn all four losses. How is it possible that I never heard of this day??
From Me ('65) of NC - 10/15/16:

From My Friend, Susan, of NC - 10/14/15:
|“In ancient Greece,
runners competed in a relay race called a lampadedromia.1 In the race,
runners held a torch in their hand and passed it on to the next runner
until the final member of the team crossed the finish line. The prize
wasn’t awarded to the team that ran fastest—it was awarded to the first
team to reach the finish line with its torch still lit. There is a
profound lesson here, one taught by prophets ancient and modern: while
it is important to start the race, it is even more important that we
finish with our torch still lit.”
Dieter F. Uchtdorf
Thanks so much, Susan!
From Brenda Shepard McCoy ('67) of VA - 10/14/16 - "Pumpkin Caramel Cream Cheese Poke Cake":
Cream Cheese Poke Cake Is The Perfect Dessert For Fall!
Criticize it all you want,
but pumpkin spice is still delicious. This cake takes the best of
pumpkin spice and mixes it with caramel and cream cheese to make the
ultimate dessert for fall.
OOH! Thank you, Brenda!
From Me ('65) of NC - 10/14/16:
|INDEED! That's why we love it so! Unless, of course, we're trying to learn it as a second language. Then, not so much!|
six locks on my door all in a row. When I go out, I lock every
other one. I figure no matter how long somebody stands there
picking the locks, they are always locking three.”
