In the eyes of my most loved book characters the world seems so simple and sweet. Every smell, every touch and every word is thoughtof and cherished. As i sit here writing this, i start to see the world around me as she does. The sweet sound of silence surrounds me with a wave of beauty. With every day that passes i start to believe in what she says. The world we live in has so much to give but isn't always seen. All of the small things are then lost and are hard to find again. But it is in all of us, the special gift to be able to find ones simple joys. So that life doesn't seem so unforgivable and unkind. If each one of us could do that, the world we live in could become a place, people only thought possible in their dreams. The character I was thinking ofwas Anne from Anne of Green gables. She saw life with such grace that she inspires me do to the same each day.
Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. ~Leo Buscaglia
