Thoughts - August 17, 2016

"The magic in this world seems to work in whispers and small kindnesses.”
― Charles de Lint
I think those of us with a furry friend or two know how true this to be. The whisper of a cat "kiss" or the love in a pup's eyes can lift our spirits like magic. And our friends do this, too. A small gift on our desk at work, a message sent with words of concern, a raising of eyebrows and other body language that unites us with another. And our families are often attuned to our needs and reach out to do that one small thing that might have broken the camel's back. I like to think that magic works in whispers - those moments when we stop to watch the cawing crows on the tree branch, the frog on the back deck who comes back each day to entertain, the determined spider who drapes her art on the porch post. Listen and watch with your heart as the day unfolds. Magic, indeed! - Beth Almond Ford
