Cherish the Ordinary


We take "our normal" for granted. Here are some moments that happened that were simple gifts. 

One of the professors that's in the Student Engagement Committee asked me if the Starbucks cup worked in the Keurig machine. I said, "I don't know". "Hannah, I'm going to try; I'm sure it will be fine". When the meeting started, it started raining coffee on the counter. After some heckling from fellow professors, he cleaned up the counter and successfully made a cup of coffee. It's an ordinary and funny moment but why not bask in the ordinary? 

When I have down time at Loyola or online classes, a fellow grad student helps set up my computer, so I can use my adaptive keyboard. At first, it was awkward but now she and I chat for a good twenty minutes while she helps me. She's so sweet and graduated from University of Kentucky like my brother will. Small world. 

My charm bracelet got caught in my sweater and three people ended up helping me be able to get unstuck. My peers feed me like it's no big deal (which it isn't) but I appreciate the humanity shown.

I've been thinking, and I believe I have the privilege of seeing the very best of humanity. I think we crave community and connection. We are made to be interdependent. Cherish relationships. We don't know what tomorrow holds. 

Love,
Hannah!

  2. ALL THANKS TO DR WILLIAMS FOR THE GREAT DEED HE HAVE DONE FOR MY DAUGHTER?
    My daughter suffered from dystonia for more than 7 years which we started experiencing in her when she turned 4 year and 5 months we all thought it will end but got even worse as days went by. We tried all several treatments and therapy prescribed by various doctors we met but to no avail, she lost total concentration and always complain of neck discomfort . She usually tells me she haves jerky head movements . This were steady disorder that disrupted her entire life, even at night she slept less because of this.It was during a casual conversation with a friend that i learned about Dr Williams herbal medicine I was able to contact him on his email address. and give him all the necessary information that he needed,few day later he sent me the herbal portion and his medicine was able to restore her back to normal and she is very okay now without any side effects whatsoever. If you have dystonia , do not hesitate to contact him on drwilliams098675@gmail.com for advice and for his product. I hope this also helps someone out there.
