As I have visited your blogs,
Many times I have been amazed at what I see or read.
I am amazed by the many talented individuals,
creating, crafting,dedicated to their choice of art.
I have seen the most beautiful photography
capturing moments making cherished memories.
I am able to recognize certain photographers
instantly by a jumping shot, or softness in their work,
or minimalist design.
Through my eyes I have been able to read poetry
that has made me gasp with an unsuspected ending,
surprised at the stories one can tell in 55 words.
Through these eyes I have read stories of
individual struggles with cancer and I am in awe
at how they fight their battles with such grace and dignity.
At times I have sometimes felt as if any words I could
say were insufficient. Through these eyes I have learned
that somehow most of us are very similar,
kind, caring, and loving individuals,
Most of us know the real meaning of life,
and that it is the little things in life that are most important,
family, friends, loving, kindness, understanding and gratitude.
Through these eyes I have been blessed
to learn from every one of you.
I have seen and read of places I have never been,
of people I may never meet but yet I feel I know them.
Through these eyes, through your blogs
I am reminded every day of the goodness in the world,
and all the opportunities we have,
I have learned that no two of us are the same,
and that even in our differences there is knowledge
and compassion and above all else regardless
of religion, cultures, different countries,
friendship knows no boundaries.
I started blogging at a time in my life
when I was very very isolated
due to an illness,
and whether you know
it or not
I believe we all have a little angel in us,
and some of us unknowingly
don't realize how we can affect others around us.
Trust me you do,
most of us want to really make a difference in the world,
and some of us think when will that happen.
There is a very good chance
you already have!
Sometimes what does not seem like a big thing to us
may be the biggest thing to someone else!
life is amazing.
Through these eyes
nothing is impossible,
not now, not ever!
So here's looking at you.
Until next time,
