For more information, go to: https://www.facebook.com/VictoriaWilsonSchultz/.To honor Victoria, her family asks that you pursue one or more of the following:1. Give to an animal rescue in your town with one big caveat: do your research as Victoria so meticulously did. Don't just click-and-give. Research (or better yet, visit) the facility. Meet the people running it and the animals. Get involved. Then give time, money, items for auction, toys, feed, or any combination of these.2. Shop at your local farmer's market and/or organic farmer's stand. The quality of the food is amazing and you'll be supporting a hard-working family.3. Support education of the arts in your local schools, even if you don't have kids or your kids are older. Donate materials and/or your time. Attend plays, concerts, and art exhibits. And vote.4. Support your local community arts community theater, art guilds, orchestras, symphonies, chorales, and more. 5. And finally, spend some time each day making the world a little better than it was when you awoke.Here are some things that Victoria tried to live each day:Be kind. Always. Especially when others make it difficult.Laugh. A lot.Cry. A little.Wag more, bark less.Pray for those who cause you to lose sleep, regardless of the reason.Support your friends.Buy a meal for someone who really needs it.Be the light in the room, especially when things are not going your way.In friends, colleagues, mentors, and leaders, follow actions more than words. Many people say the right thing. Far fewer do the right thing.Treat relationships like a good wine. Give them time to mature. Let them breathe. Don't judge simply by the first sip. Stay for the finish. Savor the complexities.When you reach the next rung of the ladder, turn around and help the person behind you reach their next rung.Be humble. Never believe you have learned all there is to learn in your chosen field.Try something new. Learn from someone who is good at doing something you've always wanted to do.Teach others what you know sharing your knowledge doesn't give away your secrets, it opens new possibilities.Help and encourage those just getting started.Do something that will cause someone to talk about you at dinner tonight.And finallyLove.
