Celine Dion

You were my strength when I was weak
You were my voice when I couldn’t speak
You were my eyes when I couldn’t see
You saw the best there was in me
Lifted me up when I couldn’t reach
You gave me faith ‘coz you believed
I’m everything I am
Because you loved me

You were always there for me
The tender wind that carried me
A light in the dark shining your love into my life
You’ve been my inspiration
Through the lies you were the truth
My world is a better place because of you

You were my strength when I was weak
You were my voice when I couldn’t speak
You were my eyes when I couldn’t see
You saw the best there was in me
Lifted me up when I couldn’t reach
You gave me faith ‘coz you believed
I’m everything I am
Because you loved me

I’m everything I am
Because you loved me

For me, this song relates to a difficult time in my life and  my children were my inspiration, saw the truth, and though I was fragile as glass, didn’t judge me but loved me unconditionally.

This song brings tears every time I hear it. I owe much to the love of my children.  I love them always and forever.

When I contemplated the word “generous”, I struggled.  Admittedly, some have become jaded as they witness the extent of greed in our society as well as the horrendous misuse of funds.  Perhaps having observing the extent of what some consider acceptable theft, or observing people stepping on others to obtain a promotion. Indeed the news is full of such examples resulting in a cloud of suspicion and negativity as we shake our heads in disgust and shame at where some have allowed themselves to go.

During particular occasions, christmas being one of them, or perhaps a special birthday or anniversary, we are compelled by generosity to make the occasion as special as possible and it gladdens our hearts to do so.

Conversely there are many who epitomize generosity in spirit and it’s a part of who they are.  I thought I’d share just one example of a moment of unexpected generosity that touched my heart.

While sitting in the car not far from the mall entrance, I watched a frail gentleman struggle, his gait unsure, as he made his way to the door.  Many hustled by him accidentally bumping and nudging him and he nearly toppled over.  A younger man walking nearby, witnessed the incident.  He walked closer to the older man, held out a hand and I watched him introduce himself.  The older man seemed startled at first.  They shook hands after which, he took the older man’s arm and guided him the rest of the way to the door.  He didn’t stop there.  He opened the door and cleared a path for the gentleman, holding  the door until the dotteringly slow gentleman entered.  Another conversation resulted.  He didn’t walk away but assisted the man on, into the mall and out of sight.   I was overcome with emotion at the tenderness of the moment which moved me to tears.  The generous display, unsolicited, and obviously heartfelt all the more valuable as a result.

We often hear of huge events arranged on a massive scale, and while I certainly don’t negate the momentousness of what was accomplished as a result, I find I’m far more touched as a result of the daily moments of generosity available to all of us.  That helping hand, the kind word, a moment in which to uplift or assist another in meaningful ways that has a profound and lasting affect on the recipient.

I’ve experienced generosity of nature here, among this delightful community of bloggers, who constantly offer uplifting and thoughtful words of encouragement.  Generosity of nature is not lost here.  I want to take this opportunity to thank all of you who offer that spirit freely and willingly and although on the surface, we may not see the affect, it is felt and appreciated.

 

 

 

Luxury

Luxury

Luxury means different things to different people.  To some, it relates to things such as fine dining, cars, homes, furniture.  To others it is comprised of vacations, warm, welcoming, pampered.  While some luxuriate in a great read or perhaps music that invigorates the soul.  Then there’s the luxury of time and the ability to use it freely for whatever we wish.  What of the luxury of thought?  Or the luxury of freedom? Freedom to be who you want to be, do what you want to do, when you want to do it, with whom you wish to enjoy it!

Luxury whatever the ideal, brings relaxation, happiness, peacefulness to the body and the spirit like a summit reached, or a dream fulfilled.  No matter how large or small the scale, it is attainable, refreshing, and pleasurable.

Some would turn up their nose and yell it is selfish and meager and unimportant and lasts momentarily scoffing at the idea.  To those who reach out for the luxury of a pair of shoes, their next meal or a roof over their head, or a warm winter coat, or that last breath, or freedom of speech, it is meaningful and filled with relief, a luxury incomparable.

Most important of all is the luxury of good health with which we are able to partake in life, in simply breathing.
