Teach your children that they need nothing exterior
to themselves to be happy - no person, place, or thing
and that true happiness is found within.
Teach them that they are sufficient unto themselves.
~Neale Donald Walsch~


Your living is determined not so much by what life brings to you 

as by the attitude you bring to life;

not so much by what happens to you

as by the way your mind looks at what happens."
~Kahlil Gibran~

Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some
people move our souls to dance. They awaken us to a
new understanding with the passing whisper of their wisdom.
Some people make the sky more beautiful to gaze upon.
They stay in our lives for awhile, leave footprints on our hearts,
and we are never, ever the same.

I love all the beautiful things Susan Branch puts out

It is a Crow

An 80 year old man was sitting on the sofa in his house along with his 45 years old highly educated son. Suddenly a crow perched on their window.

The Father asked his Son, "What is this?"

The Son replied "It is a crow".

After a few minutes, the Father asked his Son the 2nd time, "What is this?"

The Son said "Father, I have just now told you "It's a crow".

After a little while, the old Father again asked his Son the 3rd time, "What is this?"

At this time some expression of irritation was felt in the Son's tone when he said to his Father with a rebuff. "It's a crow, a crow".

A little after, the Father again asked his Son t he 4th time, "What is

This time the Son shouted at his Father, "Why do you keep asking me the same question again and again, although I have told you so many times 'IT IS A CROW'. Are you not able to understand this?"

A little later the Father went to his room and came back with an old
tattered diary, which he had maintained since his Son was born. On opening a page, he asked his Son to read that page. When the son read it, the following words were written in the diary :-

"Today my little son aged three was sitting with me on the sofa, when a crow was sitting on the window. My Son asked me 23 times what it was, and I replied to him all 23 times that it was a Crow. I hugged him lovingly each time he asked me the same question again and again for 23 times. I did not at all feel irritated I rather felt affection for my innocent child".

While the little child asked him 23 times "What is this", the Father had felt no irritation in replying to the same question all 23 times and when today the Father asked his Son the same question just 4 times, the Son felt irritated and annoyed.


If your parents attain old age, do not repulse them or look at them as a burden, but speak to them a gracious word, be cool, obedient, humble and kind to them. Be considerate to your parents.From today say this aloud, "I want to see my parents happy forever. They have cared for me ever since I was a little child. They have always showered their selfless love on me.

They crossed all mountains and valleys without seeing the storm and heat to make me a person presentable in the society today".

Say a prayer to God, "I will serve my old parents in the best way. I will say all good and kind words to my dear parents, no matter how they behave.

Live your life from your heart. 
Share from your heart. 
And your story will touch 
and heal people's souls.

One day in August
Thanks for always putting a song in my heart.
Song found on the beautiful blog The Dutchess

Build this day on a foundation of pleasant thoughts. 
Never fret at any imperfections
that you fear may impede your progress.
Remind yourself, as often as necessary, 
that you are a creature of God 
and have the power to achieve any dream
by lifting up your thoughts.
You can fly when you decide that you can.
Never consider yourself defeated again.
Let the vision in your heart be in your life's blueprint.
Smile!” (✿◠‿◠)❀
