How I truly feel . . .




This is one of the most beautiful paragraphs I have ever read.   It was  written by Jewels,  from "eyes of wonder".  She hasn't posted in quite some time, but when she does, her words are astounding.  This beautiful paragraph touched me to my very soul.   I've saved it for a long time and I read it often, I hold these words close to my heart.  This is how I truly feel:


"I hope your day is beautiful.  Hold your children, your husband, those you love and care for, tenderly, close, kiss them and hug them.  Smile often - - a soft, bright, loving, accepting, approving, smile.  Be thankful for those you love, and be sure and express your pleasure with them, to them - - through words, through your touch, so they know what your heart holds, towards them.  Sincerely praise them for even the smallest things that are praiseworthy, and with eyes open wide, take note of, and be thankful for each kindness shown to you.  Life is fleeting, and the only moments we can be entirely sure of, are those that we're presently in, right here, right now.  Let us live our lives deliberately, purposefully, making every one of those precious fleeting moments matter, for now, and for eternity, in our life and in the lives of those we love."  ~Jewels 


I believe and feel these words right down to my bones - love while you can, tell those that you love how you feel, and never forget who you are.  Have a beautiful day.


Hugs and blessings,
