“One song can spark a moment,
One flower can wake the dream,
One tree can start a forest,
One bird can herald spring.
One step must start each journey,
One word must start each prayer,
One hope will raise our spirits,
One touch can show you care.
One voice can speak with wisdom,
One heart can know what’s true,
One life can make the difference…
You see…it’s up to you.”
Let us make every moment count. 💙
“If I were a sunbeam,
I know what I’d do;
I would seek white lilies,
Roaming woodlands through.
I would steal among them,
Softest light I’d shed,
Until every lily
Raised its drooping head.”
Let us all shine a little upon others today. 💙
“My mission in life is not merely to survive,
but to thrive;
and to do so with some passion,
and some style.”
Let us all aim to thrive today. 💙
“If I can stop one heart from breaking,
I shall not live in vain;
If I can ease one life the aching,
Or cool one pain,
Or help one fainting robin
Unto his nest again,
I shall not live in vain.”
This is one of my favorite poems from Emily Dickinson. These words—among others—have helped guide my heart and hand in the care for those suffering.
