Be one

Be one who nurtures and who builds. Be one who has an understanding and a forgiving heart, who looks for the best in people. Leave people better than you found them. If we could look into each other's hearts and understand the unique challenges each of us faces, I think we would treat each other much more gently...
--Marvin J. Ashton

I seen this quote the other day and I could totally relate to it. Life gets so busy that hardly anyone notices one another. Everyone seems to be focused on just getting through the week and they seem kinda grumpy too... where I am anyway. This quote has reminded and guided me this week to try to be the one. I don't want life to be so busy that I don't notice others.

*This morning while I was at work, I had to turn the computer on and the date popped up. I noticed that the date was 9-11. I took a few minutes to quietly sit and silently pray.


  1. What a lovey poem and picture.

    I miss you.

  2. I like this quote, and this thought. Wouldn't the world be so much more understanding, and accepting if this were true?

    Yesterday in class, we took a moment of silence.

  3. Many more of us would benefit from living that quote.

    Great photo.

    Great posting.

    May love and peace be with you always.

  4. I love the poem and I agree with Diandra! also I did as you took a little time to pray and count my blessings

    love you


  5. The pace at which we live our lives seems to be increasing. No wonder there are so many grumpy people about. One can take a leaf out of your book. If everyone made a concerted effort to appreciate the moment and enjoy the simple things in life stress levels would surely drop.
