Dance the Miracle

Dancing Toes
Photograph by: Karen Holmes

"Think of the magic of that foot, comparatively small,
upon which your whole weight rests.
It's a miracle, and the dance...
is a celebration of that miracle."

- Martha Washington, American First Lady

Oh, how I love to see a child dance with abandon... the steps and music belong to them alone...no one has taught them...they just know... pure and simple expression....indeed, it is a celebration of the miracle of being.

Today, may you celebrate the miracle of your life...and dance your own unique dance with joyful abandon!

Blessings to you...

Karen,
Such beautiful toes!! Can't wait to see pictures of a dancing little girl later.
This makes me think of my grandson dancing on webcam with his mom to an exercise tape--hands in the air and joy on his face as he moved his body to the music.
Have a lovely day of joy! xo Pam

OOh those toes are so needing to be kissed and touched.

What a glorious sight, and joyful to imagine the little girl that will balance her life upon those toes.

I know those toes are loved dearly by your grace.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.
