Recently, I was working in our 30x40 foot shed which contains more treasures than anyone could possibly imagine. My family seems to call it junk, but what do they know.
As a teacher, I never threw out anything. "I will be able to use that someday," were frequently spoken words from me. Many of those items are still in the shed. Whoever would have thought one of those items would be perfect for today's blog. Well, I knew it should be saved.
This treasure is a laminated poster. (Obviously, meant to last)
A Time to Believe
To believe is to know that every day is a new beginning. It is the trust that miracles happen, and dreams really do come true.
To believe is to see angels dancing among the clouds, to know the wonder of a stardust sky and the wisdom of the man in the moon.
To believe is to embrace the value of a nurturing heart, the innocence of a child's eyes and the beauty of an aging hand, for it is through their teachings we learn how to love.
To believe is to find the strength and courage that lives within us when it is time to pick up the pieces and begin again.
To believe is to know we are never alone, that life is a gift and this is our time to cherish it.
To believe is to know that wonderful surprises are just waiting to happen, and all our hopes and dreams are within reach...if only we believe.
So, as the old song goes. Let's just pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off and start all over again.
For all my cousins (and family) in a difficult year.
