    Walking my border collie,

    Cass,and feeding bread to the wild birds,especially crows,is so precious a time for me to spend. Not that I wander with a rapt expression on my face stuck permanently in place,but I have built a relationship with the birds I feed,and they give me a tiny show of trust,more than I...

    Spending the weekend with 2 little ones really

    is good for the soul. They are hysterical, loving, naughty, bundles of joy. Pure joy! They make you appreciate kisses, hugs, sitting in the grass, spinning in circles to fall down, looking in awe at a grasshopper, and reading a book on zoo animals. They have recharged my...

    Life is this world can be really beautiful.

    We don't stop and appreciate things very often. We are always rushing around. Not mindful of our surroundings and things. One morning I was off to a funeral far away from my home. My bro was driving thru North London when I saw a man fishing in a mini local lake. It was a...

    Having my 4 yr old tell me I made a delicious

    dinner. Makes my day. Even when it's a simple grilled cheese sandwich. He puts life in perspective for me and helps me see beauty and joy in everyday, simple things.

    Its funny how an hour spent reading in the park

    can improve your day. While reading boring french articles that you can't even comprehend makes you wish to knock your head to the wall.

    He called me outside asking me to close the

    door behind me. I have something to show you, he says. He takes my hand and walks me around the back porch. We sit and look up. The stars are so vibrant tonight. We share a glass of wine and talk about how beautiful the stars are. It was so dark and the only thing I could hear...

    We come here time and again (yes,

    incarnation) to learn, but really to remember. We each choose our parents, our best teachers to give us experiences that grow and evolve us. We choose painful experiences because this is how we remember compassion. And by the way, our patents choose us, too. It's called a soul...

    Every morning when my husband kisses me goodbye

    before he leaves for work, we tell each other, "Be safe and be happy. I love you and I like you." It makes me smile every time. All the simple wishes we have for one another wrapped up in a tiny phrase.

    Times passes. When I open my eyes from sleeping,

    I want to just accept this moment and be present in it. And for my thoughts to just slow down, making room for my surroundings to process and to actually feel focused. When I lay my head at night, I want to always realize and thank for my blessings, be happy with the choices I...
