“ it was not until we saw the picture of the earth, from the moon, that we realized how small and how helpless this planet is – something that we must hold in our arms and care for”. Margaret Mead
Appreciation can make a day, even change a life. Your willingness to put it into words is all that is necessary..

A fellow blogger reminded me recently of the writing and wisdom of Robert Fulghum. I particularly like this quote taken from his work “All I ever really needed to know I learned in kindergarten”. I was really pleased to learn that he has written several books and I plan to track them down at my local public library.
Robert says: “Think of what a better world it would be if we all – the whole world – had cookies and milk about 3 o’clock every afternoon and then lay down with our blankets for a nap. Or if we had a basic policy in our nations to always put things back where we found them and cleaned up our own messes. And it is still true, no matter how old you are, when you go out into the world, it is better to hold hands and stick together.”
Everybody can be great. Because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and your verb agree to serve…You don’t have to know the second theory of thermodynamics in physics to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.

The world is full of people looking for spectacular happiness while they snub contentment.
