A Moment Of Gratitude





Our days filled with chaotic wonder,
magical moments,
and moments of despair,
happiness a balance of sorrow.
Flower petals open,
the earth is kissed by the rain,
unlock your heart.
Live with gratitude,
the sun will whisper in your ear,
the evening stars will guide you home.
Plant seeds of kindness,
and your soul will dance.
Follow your bliss,
but don't abandon others.
Breathe,
feel the unity with the universe,
live your truth.
Live with gratitude each day.

  22. a beautiful sentiment, and lovely imagery. :) the picture at the top reminds me of places I've seen in Italy where lovers would symbolize their togetherness by putting a lock on a fence or a bridge, until there would be just locks and locks and locks... :) Have a warm & love-filled Thanksgiving!
