Be present, not tense.
-written & submitted by Betsy Frank, Marshfield WI
May today there be peace within.
May you trust that you are exactly where you are meant to be.
May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith in
yourself and others.
May you use the gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has
been given to you.
May you be content with yourself just the way you are.
Let this knowledge settle into your bones and allow your soul the freedom
to sing, dance, praise and love.
It is there for each and every one of us.

Sorry for the delay in sending this out. The fact that this issue was not
in your inbox earlier today is now in the past. In the present, Ripples has
arrived and all is back to normal. Whew.
p.s. Whether you believe in the power of prayer, positive energy, or just
well wishes, I need you direct some towards UW Hosptial here in Madison.
Aaron O. is one of our original Ripplers who has also been a key advisor for
The Ripples Project. Last week Aaron suddenly contracted an unknown serious
illness and remains in ICU. I believe he will find the right combination of
resting and resisting to come out of this just fine AND I believe he could
use some support.
