A gentle thought for us all today. To live we all actually need very little. What we want is often what brings the stress and anxiety.
‘Just living is not enough’, said the butterfly –
‘One must have…sunshine, freedom and a little flower.‘
Hans Christian Anderson
Freedom………let your spirit be free – nothing can entrap you.
Sunshine – even on a cloudy day – can be found for humans in the radiance of LOVE – given or received……….
The little flower…..even the tiniest glimpse of beauty….Look for it in your day and your weekend. Be astonished at where you find it.
LIVE! LOVE! You be the radiant Joy in someone else’s day.
I m a wife, mother and grandmother. I have always enjoyed writing even from an early age. My book Beyond the Ashes has been written as a labour of love. All the characters are real to me and their story needed to be told. As a Christian my desire is to write General Fiction stories about real people but Hope and a desire for 'better' will always be part of the journey. I have had several short stories published over the years and moderate success in writing competitions.
I realized as I was thinking today (30/01/15) that perhaps I should add here that I have had life experiences of many valley times but also many mountain top experiences. I can understand and be beside anyone who finds their life in tatters because I have 'been' there. Of course as I have got older as well there have been the added sorrows of losing not only older family members but also one by one finding the dearest of friends and the ones of greatest support and care also dying. On the site of rich mountains has been my certainty of the value of marriage and how grateful I am that after loss and sadness I made a happy and long-lasting marriage commitment. The one who was my best friend back then is still my best friend 45 years later. Beyond the Ashes touches upon the POWER of LOVE when folk can forget about their own personal 'feelings' and reach out in LOVE to a desperate and broken person.
