    Thought for the week: Nine things to remember when you don’t feel supported.

    1. You can’t please everyone, 2. You are your number one priority, 3. You don’t owe anyone anything, 4. Your dreams matter

    5. It’s okay if they don’t understand, 6. Some people are just insecure and don’t believe, 7. No one can predict the future of your life, 8. You don’t need anyone’s permission and 9. You are the only one who has to be okay with the decision you make.

    On Sunday we attended the 2016 Lyons Station Class reunion and I enjoyed seeing everyone.
