"Mockingbirds don't do one thing but make music for us to enjoy. They don't eat up people's gardens, don't nest in corncribs, they don't do one thing but sing their hearts out for us. That's why it's a sin to kill a mockingbird." Harper Lee
Some things just make me happy. It's like they were born to do what they do.....to bring joy.....and make people feel good. I don't think they even know they're doing it....they just go about doing what they're meant to.....and in the process.....they give tremendous joy and peace. This week I'm thankful for.....
-My oldest daughter. She cares. Really cares about people, animals and the environment. I hear it when she tells me about her day...the kids she's hooked up with....her dreams to make a difference globally....and even when someone comes along and isn't the nicest...she somehow finds something in them worth praising.
-CF....she's been broken...really hurt but you'd never know it. She sees the good in everyone.....it's hard not to feel good around her.
-skunks. I know....everyone runs from them but I love them. Their small quirky bodies.....the way they waddle and even their smell...ok from a distance.
-blueherons - I had never seen one until we moved here. There's something about seeing them in flight with their huge wings that makes my heart soar. I can be having a really yuck day but if one flies by....boom......I'm happy again.
-The best is His presence. It's better than anything. It gives me so much joy that I want to run, dance, sing and just love the world.
