You are such a gift to our team, she said.
and the words touched my heart
and nourished my soul.

At some level I know others words
should not matter,
but sometimes they are
what I need to hear.

Sometimes it does help
to hear those affirming words,
those compliments from others,
those answers to hidden prayers.

We forget that compliments
nourish our soul and the souls of others.

We forget to feed others
with words which
nourish their self esteem,
remind them they are of value,
and they too are creators of the Ultimate.

May we remember that compliments
are a way to feed God’s sheep,
to demonstrate love for one another,
and to heal wounded souls.

Goodness begets goodness.
kindness begets kindness.
Gratitude begets gratitude.
Love begets love.
What we put into the world
spreads out and touches others.

If I want to be surrounded by goodness,
I have to radiate it.
If I want to be surrounded by kindness,
I have to practice it.
if I want to be grateful, I have to have an
attitude of gratitude.
If I want to be loved,
I have to offer love.

I have to be the glue
to which goodness,
and love

I have to remember to beget
that which I want to birth
in this world.
What I beget is
what will continue to beget
long after I am gone.

Let your kindness radiate to others

I was reminded of a video
about a young boy and an older man
who created a space
to let each other in.

That is what hospitality is about.
its about taking people
into our worlds.
Its about letting them into
our hearts, mind, souls
and saying you are welcome.

Its about breaking down barriers,
tearing down walls,
overcoming obstacles.
its about building bridges which connect us,
not walls which separate us.
its about connecting people
and hearts
one at a time.

You left the light on.
The water is still dripping.
Are you going to throw that away?
How often do we forget
to be mindful
about our environment
and our resources.

I am one who gets distracted
and forgets to shut the light off
I leave the water running
from time to time.
I do not always treat the environment
with kindness, dignity, and respect.

Being mindful means
I have to be present
when eating and
experience the aroma,
and taste
of my food.
It means I am mindful
of my utilities and when
and why I am using them
it means I honor that which
is in my home and
regift it when I no longer
appreciate its value

Being mindful brings me
closer to a place of that
amazing peace,
because I am seeing and
honoring the Divine in all.

Because of this,
I am going to work on
being mindful
and honoring all.

New Poem! Be the Change

They glide
They slide
They look so graceful
They always make each other
Look good.
They skate
They jump
They leap
They make it look so effortless
They always make each other
Look good

As a dancer in life
I hold my wife
We glide
We slide
We jump
We leap
We make it look so easy
And we focus on making each other
Look good
