If we are quiet and keep our eyes and hearts open we’ll see so many joyfull things amidst all the worries. Amidst all the business we find small things our kids do to tell us how much they mean to us. These are my favorite heart-warming moments:
1. She picks Grass flowers
To put in a vase…
They are not the most stunning flowers but
They are the biggest treasures
Because they were picked from a loving heart for a troubled heart.
Flowers are Gods creation
How wonderfully they are made
How beautiful the colors
How magnificent are their shapes
How interesting are their smells.
But how much more loved when a loved one picks them for you…
To remind you how special you are.
2. A toy ring for Mom
Just because… I love you, Mommy
It’s not gold but plastic
It’s not real, it’s from a bottle
These little gestures
Are the biggest
Because it was given by a sweet heart to a very impatient parent.
Sometimes the worthless thing is worth more than gold…
Sometimes the smallest thing is bigger than the biggest diamond…
Sometimes the ugliest thing is more beautiful than the prettiest flower…
Because it is given with unconditional love from a lovely soul to an impatient soul…
To remind you how precious you are. To remind you that you are loved.
To remind you that you are worth everything.
Look around and you will find beauty everywhere
Trees, big and small
Grass, tall and low
Flowers, different shapes and colors
Sometimes you’ll have to get up and search for it
But you will find it
4. Simple meaningful words
To see your name written on a piece of paper…
Your name in the list of beloved people…
Simple yet with so much meaning:
I think of you
You are important to me
You are special to me
I love you
Words can be of wisdom
Words can be of encouragement
With words we can help each other to live this life to the fullest.
Tiredness, anger, doubt…
We all feel this way
But if we stay like this
We’ll miss the best things in life
The best things.
