Praise Spring

Praise Spring

"The more you praise and celebrate your life,
the more there is in life to celebrate."
- Oprah Winfrey

There are so many places on earth to practice the art of finding joy... walk into a shop where unseen hands have created a spring fest for the eyes (look how the tulips bend as if in prayer, and the books just wait to be discovered); listen for the cheerfulness packaged in a child's laughter; step your foot on the softened ground that is saying good bye to a tired winter and hello to a new-born crocus; stop for a moment to praise the love the finds its way into your life in all forms... perhaps today you will practice more praise and celebration in your life... and will find it bloom for you in ways you never imagined.

"What lies before us and what lies behind us are small matters compared to what lies within us. And when we bring what is within us out into the world, miracles happen." Henry David Thoreau

I have loved this saying for a very long time and never have I known a better time than now to see these words in action. Your blog is a true example of what lies within you and it has been dormant too long!

With all that the world stuggles with right now we, throughout the world, deserve your wisdom of words, grace of sight and beam of light.

Thank you for giving my dawn a lift upward and invading my hopes and dreams with inspiration. Xoxo

About Me

My photo
I have always been inspired by my Grandfather's particular generosity and encouragement, along with his love for others and nature. His spirit lives on, and the influence is quietly with me as I write and share. This is my small offering that I pray will bless others and allow them to become Simply Inspired. warmly, karen -xok.
Each day provides its own gifts.

- Marcus Aurelius
