Little things that make you smile
"Today was good, today was fun, tomorrow is another one." Dr. Seuss
Dr. Seuss had it right in so many ways. He saw the world with through the eyes of a child, with wonder and joy for everyday things. We all need to remember the wonder of the world and take time to see life's little joys. As the world spins out of control, these little things are wondrous and free.
"There are two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle." Albert Einstein
Life is full of miracles. Spring is coming into full bloom where I live and every day I see the miracle of new life. New green shoots appearing out of the dull brown soil. Cherry blossoms, pink and white, adorning the trees. Color returning after the dead of winter. I know scientifically why this is happening, but it is still a miracle. What is dead lives again, what was gone has returned.
"To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all." Oscar Wilde
To live is to love, to appreciate, to have joy! We need to live our lives, not just perform the day to day functions. Appreciate all the beauty of nature and each other. Love and be loved. Spread joy and receive joy. Live!
"If you don't think every day is a great day, try going without one." Jim Evans
Life cannot be complete with out the small, seemingly meaningless, things that occur in our days. Take the time to rejoice in the small victories of life and nature. Smell the roses, watch the sunsets, kiss your children. Never take these seemingly small things for granted. Today will never occur again, do not miss out on it.
caressing my face
a delicate dewiness
of gentle drizzle
leaves drip vanished rain
colorful chimera glows
bitter, bleak, benumbed
morph to peaceful refreshment
in a friend's presence
gleeful mirth, exuberance,
a kitten and string
whirling round and round
tangled messy thing
playful mirth drives
white pearls bursting through red walls
ruptured with laughter
ablaze with carmine
florid twilight falls
