Do you see? I know I do !

In today's world so evident is cruelty, anger, pain and grief ; I have often wondered and also heard others ask "What sort of world are we bringing our children into?"

A very good question I think ,but let us stop and think for a moment and also take note of all the good things in our lives and here I mean really think!!!

To turn negativity into a positivity is so heart lifting !! It doesn't matter how small or trivial your actions may be because there is no such word as trivial when you connect it with good deeds.

As very many of you already know that my dear friend Bill Holland has set up a brilliant Facebook page 'Humanity One World' . This group has grown from strength to strength and please take a few moments to stop by;I can assure you will not be disappointed.

After the tragic loss of my beautiful youngest daughter Erin in 2009 I set up a trust fund in her name in honour of her love of little children.This trust fund is connected with Ty hafan our only children's hospice her in Wales .

If you'd like to read further then follow the link below:-

'Erin Jones Friend Of Ty hafan.'


I know for sure that she is so proud to have her nameconnected with such a precious and worthy charity .

My sweet baby is in my heart and by my side each and every day.

I have always felt at one with Mother Nature's kingdom having spent many years of my childhood exploring the countryside around my home. I found solace and learnt so much through her magical charm. I learnt of a mother bird's unconditional love for her chicks and also of the love and respect that the many members of her kingdom had for each other.

A few months ago we rescued Tabatha and Megan a mother cat and kitten. How wonderful it was to rescue these two abandoned and very thin cats. They have now blossomed into beautiful sweeties and are our treasured babies. They have filled a gap in our hearts and home and are loved to bits.

This morning I have published this hub to share a little of the beauty I find surrounding me daily and I hope you all enjoy.

From each sweet vision

Some great lessons I have learnt

How I do treasure.

A bird's sweet love song

To climb each snow capped mountain

To reach for the clouds.

In meadows I've played

Each stream's magical trickling

Flowing right on by.

Source

To write a brand new love song

from the words of a child

to sing along with love

such tones richly enlightening.

Do you see?

I know I do.

Each breeze sighs

seasons so golden

sailboats bobbing

with each

ebb and flow.

Do you see?

I know I do.

Each wind carries

an infant's

innocent words of love

wishing wells awaiting

magic moments flow.

Do you see?

I know I do.

Flowers of summer

blooms of winter

red golds of autumn

the awakening spring too

will carry a love

each happy heart to sing

so much magic

which each dawn

she'll bring.

Do you see?

I know I do.

Source

Sweet Visions

When I awake

Eternal bliss

Every moment to cherish

To believe .

x

Vocal moments shine

I share with you all

Such wonders arise

I share with you all

Oh my heart sings

Never-ending passions

Sweet visions to treasure.


Source

Visions

Cascading gems

This wondrous heart of mine

To share each new path in my life

Each wondrous new magical dawn shining

Inhaled into the depth of being

To cherish such wisdom

Now in my heart's

Visions.


Source

Do you see

all life's wonders?

Do you see

each golden sun?

Do you see

sweet devotion?

Do you see

each brand new dawn?

I Know I do !!!!

Here I give each and everyone of you a great big thank you for following me so loyally and also for the new members of my hubfamily. Here's to wishing you all a wonderful day and lots of love from my little corner of Wales.

Hi Beautiful Eddy,

Thanks for taking us on a journey of many loves---one of words that touches the hearts of all who reads them and of the loves of all living things.

You have the same Angel heart for taking in animals that needs love and care as I do. I cannot help it---I remember the first little life I tried to save as a child was a worm that looked sick. And by some miracle it lived for a long time with my Grandmother's help. I was about three at the time.

You have a nice week and keep sharing your wonderful work with us,

Your Friend,

Bobbi Purvis

We, here in America, will be celebrating Thanksgiving Day, this Thursday. How appropriate your words for our day of thanks.

Eddy, you have a wonderful way of celebrating life. I am repeatedly

amazed at your 'grace'. You have the wisdom of a very old soul and the heart of a young believer. Together, you have a sweet and charming spirit capable of giving a world of love. We need many more Eddys

in our world, today.

Thank you, and God bless you,

DJ.

We have to stay positive and try to give those values to our children so they can give them to their own children! We also have to teach respect. With respect and love, we shouldn't have any violence. Let's hope, one child at a time!

Thanks for sharing your beautiful poetry, Eddy!

Have a great day!

Hi DJ as always thank you for stopping by and leaving such a wonderful comment. Your words 'You have the wisdom of a very old soul and the heart of a young believer ' have been told before and I am so glad that this is how you perceive me ;I think that my wise old soul comes from finding my way through abuse to the happiness I have found today but I am also proud that my heart is young as this is what I see and feel from deep within. Thank you so much DJ my treasured friend.

Love form Wales.
