Reflective with Perspective

On this chilly spring morning I let the glorious sun kiss my face as I gaze upon the softest green buds of my lilac bushes doing the same. My senses awaken to a melody of sounds that caress me. Feet bare, I feel the cool earth beneath me. A symphony of birds rejoice...such jubilation! A soft hoo hoo coo of another bird preludes a train whistle in the distance.This bothers me not. For I bask, yes bask in an appreciative glow that reaches my soul. A dog barks and I smile, expressing gratitude for these simple pleasures. Why you may ask? Gratitude... Yes...

I'm reflective with a perspective..

In the last week I have spent days in a hospital and in a nursing home/rehabilitation center with my mother.

I make no judgments...I will just say that I see a lack of joy, hope or promise in the faces of many...

I know that the people do the best that can....maybe I just need to look a little bit closer...or take some wild flowers this spring and pass them around...#tsht

For now...I look into their eyes and smile...smile with my eyes...eye to eye, reaching their soul....hoping to touch a place within them to know that they matter...

Thoughts for the day....

Be well, my friends, love, jonnie dee
