This week officially ends 2016–which is kind of a daunting thought!
I don’t know about you, but I have lots of thoughts, ideas, and plans for the New Year.
I’m making lists, sorting through stuff, and trying to decide….just what do I want to plan for the New Year? What do I want to accomplish, what do I want to change? Continue reading
I pulled out a box of mine yesterday. It contained a whole bunch of stuff from years ago, colored pictures, birthday cards, encouraging letters from friends.
It was a large box full. Since I’m sorting out my life and getting rid of excess, I thought maybe I would see if there was anything I could part with.

But what about the days you just feel like strangling anyone who crosses your path?
We get caught up in little things.
And we forget that the most important thing, in this life, is the people around us.
I’ve seen this artist before, if you’ve watched the Lego Brickumentary you’ll get a preview of his wonderful work (plus other amazing lego information!).
This video shows his great work, a true artist.
Legos are SOOOO cool. My geeky side loves them 🙂 The only thing is I don’t handle them much, because our family only has a few sets.
Be inspired to create art in whatever form you choose!
What would happen if each of us, if all of us opened our hearts to the people we came in contact with in a day?
What if we didn’t even pay attention to the fact that that person seemed to have slept outside on a bench, that they didn’t have a home or possessions, and just talked to them as a person?
Because deep inside, we are all special, we are all the same, we all share this gift called life, and we all have the potential to make the world beautiful.
We have to pay attention to the “invisible”.
