I recall it was Abraham Lincoln
"We are about as happy as we make
up our minds to be."
Beginning each day with hope is
a gift I wish to share with my daughter,
...even on days when it is feels extremely
Personal responsibility includes
accepting the joys,
and sometimes the bitter sweet in completing the creation
of our life and
all we can affect.
The persistent will power of a spiritual warrior is needed to choose grace
and awareness of Spirit, in all things, big and small.
We all can't rescue strangers from burning buildings.
Courage is more likely seen in the consistency
that the presence of your love makes in small actions.
Like James Stewart in the movie "It's
a Wonderful Life",
not value the power that these small acts make
to better the world. Like the angel showed
Jimmy in the story,
whether you realize it or not, you have
the power to create
great change. The power to heal a hurt.
The power to renew hope.
The power to find joy again after hitting
the depths of sorrow.
We are the difference that love makes.
