Today I am participating in The Simple Things
that is being hosted by Christina at Soul Aperture
Please check out the other blogs that are participating
by going over to Christina's blog.
Some things on my list would be,
an uttered I love you, an unspoken word, a comfortable quiet,
a smile, a hug, a pat on the back, a thumbs up!
a pair of shoes, a pair of glasses, a comb, a toothbrush, a bar of Olay soap.
It is sad to know that some have none of these.
The ability to read, to feel warm, to feel safe,
to be a child with no worries,
to experience no hunger. no sorrow, no pain
to have hope,
to have friends
to have a family,
to have a pet,
to go to school,
to play sports,
to dream of college,
to have a house.
to live today,
and want a tomorrow.
to have clean water to drink,
to have water to bath,
to have a change of clothes,
the sound of laughter,
to see children playing,
to see their eyes twinkle,
to make someone feel special,
to hear a thank you and a your welcome.
to take not knowing and turning it into understanding,
to have no fear to fall asleep,
to have no fear to wake up,
to understand,to have no more worries.
to not have to be afraid,
to have medicines.
Last time I wrote the simple things that I love,
Today I wrote this list thinking of the children and people of Haiti!
A simple thing would be respect given to those who have endured such hardship.
A simple thing to feel strong and proud as a community!
strength to have faith and to rebuild!
Everything should be done to help anyone in trouble...
It really is just that Simple!
Thank you for Christina from Soul Apperture
