Sharing a beautiful poem~
Mama raccoon didn’t come home.
She left the wee one all alone.
Mom faced perils night and day.
This sad night one came her way.
Careless driver, dark of night,
A stolen life while in flight.
Racing on to who knows where,
hit the mom without a care.
Little one had lost his mother
fallen victim like the other.
All alone, a baby raccoon,
tiny face lit by the moon.
At my door a lady stood
asking me if I would
help the baby she had found
lying helpless on the ground.
Pleading so with his soft voice,
with a peek I had no choice.
Took one look and what I saw
two frightened eyes and a velvet paw.
Now my heart again would seize
a life to save and fill with ease.
Little boy I’ll stroke your ears.
With me you will have no fears.
Come sweet baby, little sir,
let me smell your precious fur.
Raccoon spirit full of charm,
rest your head upon my arm.
I want you my friend to see
what this babe has done to me.
Forego family time and sleep,
all for his sweet heart to keep.
“I’ve never stopped; I simply forgot that I love you. However, every time I look at you I’m reminded of how I can never stop loving you.” Hafsa Shah
“An all-powerful and sovereign Creator, who wants to have an intimate relationship with His creation, loves mankind beyond measure. God did not create the human race out of boredom or on a whim. No, He made us for His good pleasure and great delight. His attachment to us is so great that He longs for our fellowship and will one day live among us in paradise. He enjoys our company! Although we are corrupt and sinful in nature, He refuses to abandon that which His breath made alive. We are His. We belong to a King! He made a commitment to us…. we are His beloveds. In Him alone we find all hope.” Cheryl Zelenka (www.facingtrials.com)
“Hope is born in the dark. Like a lighthouse calling out to a lost ship at sea, hope will bring you through every personal storm. It is our encouragement and guide to safety. Hope is found in the arms of God.” Cheryl Zelenka
“But he who dares not grasp the thorn
Should never crave the rose.” Anne Bronte
“I suppose illustration tends to live in the streets, rather than in the hermetically sealed atmosphere of the museum, and consequently it has come to be taken less seriously.” Quentin Blake
I am not a fan of football, but I like to watch the ads and the half-time show during the Superbowl. Two ads caught my attention and I want to share them with you, (maybe you also saw them during the game).
The 1st one is regarding empowering women and what is means to be a woman as well as the respect we ALL deserve.
The 2nd ad is regarding life, wisdom and perhaps quality of life.
What comes from God: flowers, the sky, trees, animals, your pets; all of these are Gods gifts to us, to lift our spirit. I hope we all enjoy these little treasures that will never make us feel sad or weary.
“When you take a flower in your hand and really look at it, it’s your world for the moment. I want to give that world to someone else. Most people in the city rush around so, they have no time to look at a flower. I want them to see it whether they want to or not.” Georgia O’keeffe
“Love is the answer, and you know that for sure; Love is a flower, you’ve got to let it grow.” John Lennon
A final thought that I find to be very true.

The year is almost gone! I want to share some of the many positive quotes I collect via Pinterest. I still have so much to learn, improve, and delete from my life like -fear-. Although is good to know our flaws, we must realize all the good things in each of us and be grateful for our daily blessings! I wish you all the very best today and in the New Year! Happy 2015!

Merry Christmas dear friends!

“So it’s not gonna be easy. It’s going to be really hard; we’re gonna have to work at this everyday, but I want to do that because I want you. I want all of you, forever, everyday. You and me… everyday.” Nicholas Sparks, The Notebook
