Closeness

“There will come a day when you find someone who makes your burdens lighter.  The person who takes all your concerns, pressures, and heartaches and makes them somehow smaller and more insignificant.  They make you feel happier and more hopeful, encouraged.  Hold onto that person — that is a true and worthy love.”

Tails!

When you need to make a hard decision, flip a coin. Why? Because when that coin is in the air you suddenly know what your hoping for.:

Wait and Hope

“There is neither happiness nor misery in the world; there is only the comparison of one state with another, nothing more. He who has felt the deepest grief is best able to experience supreme happiness. We must have felt what it is to die, Morrel, that we may appreciate the enjoyments of life.

” Live, then, and be happy, beloved children of my heart, and never forget, that until the day God will deign to reveal the future to man, all human wisdom is contained in these two words, ‘Wait and Hope.”

~ Alexander Dumas

Why I Still Travel

Walk

“Walk in the Park” by Olivia Blessing Photography

Still round the corner there may wait,

A new road or a secret gate.

Dreams are Future Realities

“You see things; and you say, ‘Why?’ But I dream things that never were; and I say, “Why not?””

Renew Your Spirit

Celestial spirit that doth roll
The heart’s sepulchral stone away,
Be this our resurrection day,
The singing Easter of the soul –
O gentle Master of the Wise,
Teach us to say: “I will arise.”
~Richard Le Gallienne
