On Fridays She Writes

~ ~ ~
When the rain stopped, it was quiet.
Just a moment of it.
The nothingness of nothing.
Then a few birds started to talk.
Where had they been ?
Perhaps shaking off the drops on their wings.
Don't we all do that ?
Stop for a time.
Listen to our hearts beat.
The flap of a few wings.
Then on we go.
Until the next time.
~ JC ~

It's good to stop and take a breath occasionally - we miss so many lovely things because of our too busy lives.

Lovely poem and a great quotation about living. Yes. Surround yourself with people who love living and are kind. Life is too short to spend time with the ones that look down instead of up at the birds in the sky!

That sums up my world this week...

There comes a time in your life when you walk away from all of the drama and the people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right and pray for those who don’t. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of life, getting back up is living.
