Today, I offer two stories about two men working together:
1. After many years at war, the leaders of North and South Korea met in person for the first time on April 27th and agreed to work together for peace! No matter what happens, this gives me hope that the hardest hearts can become open to peace and healing.
2. After the accident, Willie Burnman was told he would never never walk or even move his limbs again. But he got a little feeling in his toes. Then he met Jeff, the YMCA intern. Watch what happened:
In personal good news, I’m having the bathroom in my parents’ house redone – new tub, new sink, new toilet, new floor! The not so good news is I’ll have limited internet access there, so I won’t be on WP much this week. But the good news in that is, I’m going to work on de-cluttering and writing.
I hope the week brings you good news and sweet surprises!

Nice to see some optimism about Korea, and the video is amazing

It sure is nice. Proof that it’s possible for long time enemies to make peace.

Korea was something I found hard to believe; hopefully it’s not a short term thing. Enjoy the time; renovating is fun and it is remarkable to see the place transform.

I know what you mean about Korea. When I get a chance I’m going to research what influenced the change. I hope it’s lasting.

Great stories, Joanna!
And how funny…you are working on your father’s bathroom…and I am in the middle of working on my mother’s bathroom! (Not as extensively…just removing wallpaper…painting…fixing the floor and putting the moulding back in)
Hope it all goes really well and that you feel your muse and write, write, write!!

Thanks, Lorrie. I didn’t write as much as I’d planned, but it’s okay. Sounds like you were working hard! But the finished product will be worth the effort. ❤
