yes…….childlike wonder i still have in my soul

despite the years i have behind me, i still see the would through the eyes of a child

it may seem silly for one of such age to get so excited by a butterfly, a flower, a happy dog with his head out a window, a poem, a sunset, or a friendly comment

but………my heart still skips a beat when i see small tokens of joy present itself

it is as if God is telling me…….i am here……and……i never left……..

in the darkness of night………they flash with passion

their brilliance shining…….lighting up their little part of the world

others looking on with amazement, joy and splendor


I dream of a world where small lights of kindness continually illuminate the darkness

bringing hope and happiness to others

“Spread love everywhere you go.  Let no one ever come to you without leaving happier.”     –  Mother Teresa


Really, is there any bigger gift then to make another person feel better?  Isn’t that what we were created for………to take care for, to love, to be kind, and to respect one another?

Mother Teresa and many individuals like her have done just that.  She made people happy just to be in her presence by providing her undivided attention, basic human needs of unconditional love, acceptance, food, clothing, shelter and medical care in their most simple forms………….what a blessing to those who received it…………….what a person to emulate.



ok…………I am going to break the rules here, please forgive me…………but, I am going to nominate bloggers on my 3rd day.  Thank you for understanding!
