I am passionate about:
palliative care, grief, dogs, serving God
A little known fact about me is:
I walked the equivalent distance of around the world with my dog, Ollie.
Show my name on the attendees list for events I am attending:
OSU, The James, Grant Medical Center
"I hope for the best, but prepare for the worst."
Love to walk my current dog, Opie, to the park every AM and PM.
Enjoy teaching adult Sunday School class.
Love walking on new paths, especially in forests like the great Sequoias.
Enjoy emailing and computing while sitting on my screened-in back porch with Opie hanging out near by.
Looking forward to discovering the next challenge that God has in store for me.
I think "little" losses should be included, examined, celebrated, too - like when a fellow student or a teacher moves out of town. What did they mean to us? How will we remember them? Will we keep in touch and how often?
I think drawing would be fun for some, but I would not make it mandatory as some kids don't like to draw. Also, maybe adult or high school teen volunteers could be present that day at school and could audio record the stories and then type them up and the kids could take them home to parents and/or they could be kept in a book at school? Perhaps some high school arts class teens could draw a picture on the typed up story along with the child who told the story? Just thinking off the top of my head.
