Life is Full of Beauty

December 19, 2012

Life is full of beauty.  Notice it. 
Notice the bumble bee, the small child, and the smiling faces. 
Smell the rain, feel the wind. 
Live your life to the fullest potential and fight for your dreams.

- Ashley Smith

Today, when I look at the news reports and find the evil and darkness in this world, I choose to find the beauty and goodness. Prayers for all those precious children and families effected in this horrible tragedy.

Hoping you find some beauty today, dear friends.

Thank you for all of the beauty today dear friend... I cannot look at any more sadness or news... I too will choose to see the good in the world and not dwell on the evil... blessings to you, xoxo Julie Marie

I also choose to feel this way... when we allow ourselves to wallow in grief the person causing the evil wins and I chose not to allow that... Know ing the terrible tragic event is one thing happening but we must remember there are acts of kindness taking place everywhere also.. acts of kindness on our prt with love ones or ones not known is. wonderful way to combat this evil.... it's our choice...

This is so true...beauty must win over darkness. I love the look of your blog and have just spent the last few (20) minutes taking in your older posts. I have added you to my side bar so that I don't miss a thing. Patty

Sometimes it's hard to see the beauty & goodness behind the pain & sorrow...but it is still there.

Hi Thanks for visiting and leaving kind words... I wanted to leave you a note that I removed yesterdays post... not that I feel any differently just that I seemed to upset a couple people and have decided to keep my emotions off my blog and live my life as I need to for my own well being and that doesn't mean others have to agree... I tend to be more emotional this year with fighting cancer this summer and fall I feel I have been givien a real gift... I wish you a peaceful and holiday filled with joy.... Blessings wished for you...
