“Life is full of beauty. Notice it. Notice the bumble bee, the small child, and the smiling faces. Smell the rain, and feel the wind. Live your life to the fullest potential, and fight for your dreams.”

Have you ever had one of those days where everything goes great, no problems, no interruptions, and everything just seems so easy? Did you ever think to sit back and Thank God for those kind of days? We go through life so blind to what we should be thankful for, such as family, second chances, love, friendship, our health and so much more.

Meet Zoe, my inspiration :)

Today i had to opportunity to meet Zoe. Zoe is Handicapped and cannot function on her own. The wonderful caretakers who are diligently involved in the Children's Hospital, care for Zoe on a day to day basis. It was an amazing experience interacting with such a beautiful girl, she couldn't say much but the smile on her face said it all. Children have always been close to my heart and i love them all equally but for some reason today, my attention kept turning back to Zoe. Just the slightest touch from hand to hand lit her face up like you wouldn't imagine. 

These children maintain a pretty stable life from what they can, in a hospital. Have you ever stopped and actually thought about how blessed you truly are? These children don't chose to live these kind of lives, unfortunately this is how it has to be for them. But any opportunity they get to smile, they smile. And you should too. Instead of complaining everyday about what could be better, what you don't have, what you want and what isn't going the way YOU want.. why don't you replace those complaints with thanks. Thanks that your life is a gift, and you should treasure every second of it. Zoe was my inspiration.. whose yours? :)
