    Actually it is from the book-Riding the Wind: Healing the Whole Person by Robin Shapiro. I read that excerpt and liked what it said. Think about it- you & Delaney- you sing each day, laugh each day, surround yourself with each other (loving people) and being with her nourishes your soul-I can’t think of a better way to live.

    Karen- Have you converted to Buddism? Sounds like one of those ancient philosophies. Just kidding, I get the same self help by spending time with my daughter. However, I do need to find some type of exercise, hum. Did you get your pictures yet???

    That was beautiful! It’s funny how much we take for granted in the every day hussle and bussle! I especially liked the one that said to go outside for a few hours every day, no matter what the weather! How great would that be?!

    Thanks for the thoughts… I may have to post those on my site!
