Favorite Quote:
Wisdom begins in wonder.

When you wake up in the morning, what do you hear?
Do you hear the
birds singing their
sweet songs to gently awaken you, as if to make
sure you don't miss
something special?
What do you see?
Do you see the sunlight peeping through the shades of your windows as you slowly
open your eyes to it,
as if to make
sure you don't miss
something important?
What do you feel?
Do you feel the
cocoon of warmth that
you created when you
wrapped your blankets
around yourself in your sleep,
as if to be
sure that the
something special,
and the something important will
sink all the way into
you when they
I do.
