A Message For Your Monday... stop for a moment, today, to let Nature heal you...

"As long as this exists, and I may live to see it,
this sunshine, the cloudless skies, while this lasts,
I cannot be unhappy....
as long as this exists, and it certainly always will,
I know that then
 there will always be
comfort for every sorrow,
whatever the circumstances may be.
 And I firmly believe that nature
brings solace in all troubles."
-Anne Frank


  1. Anne Frank was amazing! When I was growing up, I saw a movie dramatization of her diary and it had a profound effect on my sense of the moral universe. I still experience a pit of sadness when I think about her life, her story and her tragic, untimely death at the hands of her Nazi captors.

    1. I know what you mean, Michael. I read today that her diary was first published in English on this day, April 30th, back in 1952 and that Anne died of typhus about 2 weeks before her camp was liberated in 1945. What a story, what a spirit, what a gift she still is to so very many. If she could see the beauty in the little things in the midst of so much horror, then we all can, no? Thanks, Michael:) Wishing you a beautiful week!

  2. She saw better with no sight, than many with perfect vision. Thanks for sharing this! :-)

    1. You know are so right. This could have just as easily been written by Hellen Keller. Do you know you give my heart a smile every time i read you here?!:)

  3. You're right, I didn't think of it that way. Although Anne was sequestered from the sight of others, unable to move about and see the world, she had amazing insight. I could see Hellen Keller writing this also, what a great observation. :-)

    The best thing about smiles, they're never one way.
