“We can’t heal the world today.
But we can begin
with a voice of compassion,
a heart of love,
an act of kindness.”
– Mary Davis
Wishing you all a wonderful week. 💙
When you start each day with a grateful heart, light illuminates from within.
I am thankful for so much, but at the same time…for not enough. Even in the darkest of nights, there is beauty to be appreciated. Today, I want to appreciate more.
What are you grateful for?
“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. 💙
“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. 💙
Good afternoon friends!
Today, I just wanted to say hello…and to tell you all that I think you are amazingly wonderful. Why? Because each of you are so talented, unique, and beautiful in your own ways…and on top of that….you are definitely the coolest group of bloggers in the blogosphere.
With that said, I will leave you with a well-known but still one of my favorite Helen Keller quotes…
“The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched—
they must be felt with the heart.”
“My life laid before me… my treasons my troth
Wrapped with transcendence in fine sacred cloth
My breath must surrender to cold mortal brew
As wildflowers bend neath pure morning dew.
And then there were angels
Filling the sky
Lifting me upward…
And then I could fly.“
These are the words of a fellow blogger and poet.
Words that affect me more than one can know.
So I would like to use this post to thank him today
for being a glimmer in the night…and an inspirer of hope.
Because in our own way, we are all physicians.
He is Steven Michael Sanders,
I am asking you to visit him,
because his poetry will enliven you,
and his story will inspire you.

Tidbits about William Carlos Williams (1883-1963):
♦ A renowned writer, he was said to be a “doctor by day, poet by night.”
♦ He attended medical school at the University of Pennsylvania, was trained in family medicine and pediatrics, and served as the chief of pediatrics for 40 years at what is now St. Mary’s General Hospital in New Jersey.
♦ He painted during his early years, similar to his mother, who was a Paris-trained artist.
♦ As one closely associated with modernest poetry and imagism, he also had marked influence on the American literary movements of the 1950’s including the San Francisco Renaissance, the Beat movement, and the New York School.
♦ He is an inspiration to PuppyDoc.
