Hello to you – I hope this finds you well. Keeping it really simple today as I’m tired and adjusting to a morning without the sounds of my sweet Kyle’s voice and presence! Today is his first day at work. Much love and hugs to you reader(s) and I hope you will find a way, your special way, to make this World a better place. Even if you can just manage a smile and a heartfelt “hello” to a stranger – that’s a start!

What Would You Give?
What would you give for a day in Spring,
With bright green grass and windy hills,
Sapphire skies and cotton clouds,
And the fairy gold of daffodils?
What would you give for a Summer day,
with your own rainbow overhead,
Butterflies and hummingbirds,
Hovering over each flower bed?
What would you give for an Autum day,
With leaves of orange and brown and gold,
The smell of wood smoke in the air,
And all of the love your heart could hold?
What would you give for a Winter day,
Whole landscapes glisten white with snow,
A blazing fire and af riend to share
Sweet memories of long ago?
Is there among us anyone,
With wealth enough to purchase all
This loveliness, no human hand
Can duplicate, however small?
What do you suppose the price
And value of such things would be?
No man who lives is rich enough,
….To buy what God gives us for free!
Creator of heaven and earth,
You are me,
I am you.
prayer of a navajo girl – early 20th century
Sometimes we need to stop and smell the roses….take a moment to appreciate the gifts of Nature going on all around us each and every day.
