I maintain / I insist

“One thing I have learned about love and life:  don’t try to love the big things. You can find your way there only by loving the smallest of things– warm coffee or tea in your hands, a wildflower, the way the light falls, someone’s laugh, a song, a breeze, cooking smells, a touch…”  ~Matthew Dowd …

In this excerpt from Wunnerful, Wunnerful! the Autobiography of Lawrence Welk, © 1971, he talks about how hard it was for him to express his emotions verbally: I had always thought my mother was beautiful, but she looked especially so to me as she held (my newborn daughter) Shirley for the first time.

Soulmates

  John Lydon/Johnny Rotten and Nora Forster have been married for forty years now (via): “Now there’s a saucy girl.  It’s love, you know. I’ve always loved that woman. And she knows it. When we met we didn’t expect to get on. We’d both been told the other was a bad ‘un. But blimey. Sparks …

Abundance in your life, blessings in your days, dreams that come true, and hopes that stay. A rainbow on the horizon, an angel by your side, and everything that could ever bring …
