Have you ever stopped and listened, to all of life's great sounds...
The buzzing bees, the rustling leaves, childrens laughter all around?
Have you ever noticed beauty, in something grand or small...
Like the melody from a morning bird, or the colors of the fall?
I used to overlook these things, I saw but didn't see...
Now these little joys of life, are comforting to me.
They keep me smiling when all else seems too hard for me to bear...
like wondering what, who, when and why, while trying to reach the where.

Some of those questions in my head are answered in His time...
Now that my sight is blurry free, I'm noticing the signs.
A flower here, the flock of birds, that just flew overhead...
a passing strangers kindness with the words that they just said.
They may never know or realize, just what they've given me...
Which is why I urge the lost and blind to seek their own beauty.
Just take a moment, let go the doubt, that lessons taught of things...
And may you feel and see and even hear the joy that life can bring.

Nice post and someday I hope you find the peace in your heart that it crys out for. Stop in the Florida chatroom and say Hello sometime. That is where I hang my hat so to speak.

Feel yourself breathing. Feel your own heartbeat. Write poems about what you would like to do with your kids when they are old. Accept the fact men aren't equal. Accept the good fact that we, as 'not being equal', are unique and special. Don't feel ashamed for others not seeing this special being, feel pity for them instead!

Thanks JuicyBBW...this may sound a little sad to some butmy happiness is insignificant. With all I desire yet can no longer do, I don't see myself as being happy in the future...but that is MY happiness. Now, I do find happiness in others, such as my children. Knowing they have a whole life ahead of them and being a part of helping them prepare for it is what makes me happy. Seeing and making others smile makes me happy. Being that one thing that others know they can count on for a hug or laugh despite how I may feel makes me happy. The list goes on and on because as I said...I see beauty now in everything that I missed before. I guess it took me becoming disabled to be able to be happy and content with life's pleasures...even if from the outside looking in. Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment and I'll try to stop by the chatroom.

affbreak...I feel sorry for those too close-minded to recognize what's around them. I don't pity anyone because I don't want pity for myself.

GOTD...thank you...I had to return the favor. Again, I want to thank you for being who you are and allowing me the contentment of knowing the human spirit isn't totally corrupted or lost. The beauty of your words is one of those joys I used to miss before.

CC, I am goint to address this subject in a future blog, I'v e been thinking about it for a while but it's difficult because there is so much I want to say.
In the meantime, two things-
I DO see you being happy
something I notice and appreciate are smells.
honeysuckle, freshly mown grass, rain, and even cow poop

I look forward to reading what you have to say JayR...I also like the smell of freshly mown lawns...and I love that just after a rain smell.

Awww thanks Katey and a big hug back to you. Another thing that brings happiness is seeing others find love...so I'm praying that you and your new beau find all you seek! May this unexpected collision of lives bring two souls togethr forever...best of luck!

Ahh, to stop and smell the roses as we say sometimes. I do this often and have for as long as I can remember. Sunsets, flowers, cloud shadows on mountaintops. Smells register on a different level but oh! the memories they can generate....

Hey Papy...I was just watching some little birds defend their territory against a hawk. It was amazing to see knowing one on one these little fella's were through, but together they had no fear.

Keithcancook...thank you for stopping by. I agree about smells and memeories...you being able to cook well must have some great memories! Preparing dinners for that special lady before an evening of passion...mmm mmm Good! (and the food wasn't bad either)...hehehe

You have every right to feel pity for some. Not for the things they can't reach, but for the things they can reach but don't try to reach hard enough or don't even try at all.

I would feel pity for you, If your mind wouldn't try Your Ego to stand upright.

Btw.: Where's that 'when my kids are grown up' blog of yours?
