Weekly Inspiration :: Every Day Miracles

"Every day we are engaged in a miracle which we don't even 
recognize: A blue sky, white clouds, 
green leaves, the curious eyes of a child, 
our own two eyes.
All is a miracle."
~ Thich Nhat Hanh

Sometimes we find it difficult to recognize the beautiful, wonderful, 
and miraculous things happening around us every day.
We get easily distracted by work, social obligations, technology, and life's routine, so much so
that we forget about life's true pleasures. 
A beautiful blue sky, a soft breeze carrying the scent of spring flowers, the gentle warmth 
of the sun, a smile from a stranger....these are everyday miracles that touch
us on a deeper level than we might recognize.
Take the time and make a promise to yourself
to stop and appreciate life's every day miracles.
Take a deep breath, exhale, and recognize that you yourself are a miracle.

Weekly Inspiration :: Happy Mother's Day!

“As mothers and daughters, we are connected with one another. 
My mother is the bones of my spine, keeping me straight and true. 
She is my blood, making sure it runs rich and strong. 
She is the beating of my heart."
~  Kristen Hannah

There is no love greater than that of a mother for her child. 
She is the woman that shapes who you will become. She is a confidante, a teacher, 
a partner in crime, a life giver, a best friend, the queen of our universe, giving herself wholeheartedly to the people that depend on her.
Our mothers lead us down the path of life, guiding us with love, care, and tenderness.
This mother's day, remember all of the wonderful amazing things the number one woman in your life
has done for you.
Remember her smile, her soft voice singing you to sleep as a child, the love that only she can give.
To all of the mother's out there...thank you for making this world a better, more beautiful place.

Happy Mother's Day!
