Experience the joy of Christmas through the eyes of a child…then immerse yourself in the peace and inner fire found in nature.
“See how nature – trees, flowers, grass – grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence…We need silence to be able to touch souls.” – Mother Teresa

Gratitude 365

Posted in Thoughts with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 23, 2012 by allisonlabine
I’m thankful everyday for the people that make my life meaningful, for beauty in all forms on this Earth, for inspiration, for compassion, for smiles that come from the soul, for the opportunity to always learn and grow, for touch, for sight, for hearing, for smell, for taste, for shelter, for clothes, for food, for water, and for a measure of inner peace. – Allison LaBine

Through it all

“Come o’er the sea,
Maiden with me,
Mine through the sunshine, storms and snows;
Seasons may roll,
But the true soul
Burns the same, where’er it goes.”
– Thomas Moore

“I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you simply, without problems or pride: I love you in this way because I do not know any other way of loving but this, in which there is no I or you, so intimate that your hand upon my chest is my hand, so intimate that when I fall asleep your eyes close.” – Pablo Neruda
