You need some inspiration on a cold winter’s day? I recently read the following in “More Than Just a Thought - Life in a Nutshell,” a monthly newsletter I get from Clay Nelson’s Life Balance. I really liked what he said. It reads like this:
“Life is an awe-inspiring journey that we are meant to savor. We were given eyes, so that we can see the beauty around us, and so we may see when another is in need. We were given ears so we can learn, and so that we may listen to others. We were given voices so that we can share what we have learned along our journey, ask for help when it is needed, and teach and comfort others. We were given the ability to smell so that we may stop and really enjoy the fresh mountain air along our way. We were given the sense of touch so that we may not only love the way the soft fur on a kitty feels when you give them a belly rub, but give them happiness and provide for the needs of others in return.
“We were given this gift of life to enjoy, and in return for this gift, we are called to make a difference in the lives of others.” - Clay S. Nelson.
