Paying Forward

We can see the world as a doomed place, bound for destruction and full of people who only consider the bottom line.

However, if we allow it, we will also notice and experience the many acts of kindness that are extended to us, as gifts.

Sticking our heads in the sand and pretending everything is goodness and light may be refusing to face “reality,” but putting a bag over our heads and denying there is any goodness and light is equally delusional.

Sunshine and shadow. Love and hate. Violence and gentleness. Meanness and kindness. All co-exist around us.

Given the choice, I would much rather tally kindness and generosity. My scoreboard has HAPPY LIFE written on it.

May I receive such gifts graciously and pay them forward.

About CarolWiebe

Art entices, inspires, and delights me. Art is a vehicle for laughter, tears, wonder, enlightenment--taking me on a constant path of discovery. You can't say that about housework (except, perhaps, for the crying part).
