This got my attention this fine sunny morning.......

"Life is like having a cup of tea. You sit by the side of the window, Lift the cup and take a careless sip only to realize, Somebody forgot to put the sugar. Too lazy to go for it, you somehow struggle through the sugarless cup. Till you discover undissolved sugar crystal sitting at the bottom... That's LIFE... So move on and stir up your Life ......."
- (Unknown)

So I hope that wonderful quote will turn your attention to all the undissolved dreams sitting there in your heart. It's never too late to get it out up front of your life, begin even with tiny steps. Make it matter whatever it is you may think would feed those dreams. Little is big when the heart is in it.

Don't put up fences yourself; instead break down all those walls keeping you back from realizing your dream. If you have to do one painful task at a time, do it. Because nobody else will do it for you. And if you truly want it very much, nothing can ever stop you. Don't worry about time... Time is always there for anyone who knows how to handle it. Don't think that youth is enough excuse for not starting now. Neither should you think that old is. Grandma Moses did her famous paintings in her seventies. Age is just a number, as many have said, and it is. And even if perchance you don't get there to where you want to be... be comforted with the thought that you have worked towards a dream... for a dream... because of a dream. That you are luckier than some of us who don't even have a dream... or know what it is.

And when you enlist the help of the Big Guy up there, you can never lose. Don't count the days with time; count it with the beatings of your heart with your eyes on your dream. I am :-)

Blessings to you all! :-)

  3. Hi KP,

  5. Ellen,

    Caught up with all pending posts. I am going to give consolidated comment. The last paragraph in one about Dog & Cat summed it up so rightly. One should keep fond memories and not disturb departed soul by remembering sad times. That song is so right even today. We always feel others are just as what we are. You are right that we can know a person how he or she talks about others. One should write as one wishes to without any fear and let the reader decide to read or not. No matter how low a person is placed if he or she has dreams of reaching sky, it will happen. Nobody can stop it. A prayer said in silence by heart is heard by God as all the din makes God shut ears to stop that noise getting in. So true about light removing dark and not vice versa. One should keep that in mind always. This one is so true. Unless we stir up our life how do we hope to achieve what we wish to?

    Take care
