( First, I’ve gotta tell you that I’m finding so much joy in my Journey with you).
However we have failed ourselves and those we care about; wherever our fears have knocked us to our knees; whatever searing loss has tempted us to give up on our dreams, our story doesn’t end there!
It’s time to leave 2019 and move into the New Year.
It’s time to leave what’s past and embrace what’s possible.
Every ending brings a new beginning.
As we are making our way into our new beginning, we are constructing a world where people make room for each other, provide for each other, and take care of each other.
A world where people refuse to judge a child by her scars.
This is our 20/20 vision at Ryan Shines, even if that’s not the world we live in.
We live in a world where terrible things happen, and not just to other people.
We have had our share of tragic accidents, and dreaded diagnoses.
The question is: “how will we respond when these things happen to us?”
By facing what’s terrible in our lives and our world, we create the possibility that something beautiful will emerge in its wake.
What’s terrible doesn’t have the final word.
As long as we are alive, something always happens next. And if we work for it, ‘the something that happens next’ can be beautiful.
Why don’t you join us?
It’s never too late to embrace our Vision.

I attended World Burn Conference this last October in Anaheim Ca. I went there as broken Grandmother of an amazing burn survivor but left a woman with appreciation of the gifts that we are given in this life. I am so grateful for the opportunities and experiences that we as a family have been able to take part in. There are always new and old struggles. But so comforting not to be alone.
I must tell you this morning that your strength is a comfort to me, and
many others. You are an inspiration.
Dawn you are an inspiration. Just seeing the love and energy you radiate made me appreciate my blessings. Thank you for sharing.
