It’s been a challenging 12 days, along with a challenging 3 months, for all of us I am sure. Battered with the Corona Virus, the unemployment level, lack of income and now the death of George Floyd and the outcry by people of all color.

My heart goes out to the mother and family of George Floyd. Nobody should have to watch their child’s life ebb away in this manner. This is a tragedy in the US. Many are out there protesting. Some of us may be out there protesting. The US is burning in many cities, looting is happening and tear gas is being sprayed. If you are out in the midst of the protests, please stay safe

Our topic this month is taking the Ordinary and making it Extraordinary. We have the chance to do that with what we do and say. I know that I been shocked with some of what I have seen this past 12 days and I know that I have heard friends of color speak out and their words have resonated with me. I want to do better, I know that I can be better. I have always been one to say All lives matter, I firmly believe that. However, the other day I was hit in the face with truth, only when black lives matter, can all lives matter. Lets take the our Ordinary and make it Extraordinary. Reach out and let your friends of color know you are there for them. Be willing to listen. Treat each other with respect. Help those that need help.

This month the Share Six blog group has share with us their take on {Ordinary to Extraordinary}
