Fight for your future


Ciao! I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend! Today was a nice and productive day. I went early to read to the children in the peds unit. It is funny, I tried to figure out hat books to bring to give away. I found this book on giving among others, and as I was reading that one, a little boy got up, went to his room, and came back with a tiny glass angel. And you know? He gave it to me! He said, "I want to be a giver. I like you a whole lot." Oh my gosh, it was absolutely sweet. I hugged him so tight. :)

Then another followed me everywhere. I finally had to tell him I would be leaving, and he made me promise to come back. I will, of course! The thing is, I am hoping he will be released by then. His fever is gone, and he is getting so much better!

I brought him some homemade tea I made. I like to boil the water, add vanilla bean, and a touch of sugar. (The sugar will dissolve better if put in the boiling water first, instead of after it has cooled.) Anyway, he likes it, so I make him some when I have time, and bring it to him. He is 8, and such a nice boy. :)

Then I ran some errands, after giving my Christmas gifts of candies, to others there. (I did have some Ghirdardelli chocolate, but gave it away later in the day.) I just had a wonderful Saturday. It started perfectly, and now? Well, I feel complete inside. Living, vibrant, loved. I am going to work on images for a while, because I feel like being creative. I hope to catch up to email sometime tomorrow. :)

Love is patient; love is kind
and envies no one.
Love is never boastful, nor conceited, nor rude;
never selfish, not quick to take offense.
There is nothing love cannot face;
there is no limit to its faith,
its hope, and endurance.
In a word, there are three things
that last forever: faith, hope, and love;
but the greatest of them all is love.

You know,...

... this is my year. And I am going to live each day to its fullest, with a smile. In fact, this year has already started to be the best year of my life. From my well wishes at midnight in Spain, to the fact Michael has caught the mouse, to the huge smile on my face at the moment!! :D

If moments seem hard, just redirect your mind to something warm in your heart. Withing minutes, you will begin to shine. You have to fight for what you truly want. It means sacrifice, love, selflessness, giving, faith, plenty of smiles, warmth, respect, and living life with open arms. You will have the security in knowing, everything will always be okay. You just have to believe. :)
