cupcakes are kind
I made cupcakes for my Mundo Lindo kids. Just because.
...and with 4 cupcakes left over, I walked out into the park and found 2 young moms with 4 small children, and offered them the cupcakes. They were thrilled and surprised.++++++++++++++
Why I Wake Early
by Mary Oliver
Hello, sun in my face.
Hello, you who make the morning
and spread it over the fields
and into the faces of the tulips
and the nodding morning glories,
and into the windows of, even, the
miserable and the crotchety--
best preacher that ever was,
dear star, that just happens
to be where you are in the universe
to keep us from ever-darkness,
to ease us with warm touching,
to hold us in the great hands of light--
good morning, good morning, good morning.
Watch, now, how I start the day
in happiness, in kindness.
My friend, Fred Jacobsen, made these "Be Kind, pass it on" cards to distribute. A lovely little reminder.
