Show Love


 "The good deed you do today may benefit you or someone you love at the least expected time. If you never see the deed again at least you will have made the world a better place."
Doing a good deed and showing love doesn't have to always be extravagant. Good can be in the details.


 love can be a pie

 or even cupcakes ;)



love because you were shown love...
even if that means baking someone a pie.

Awwww....so true. Sometimes a good deed can also be as simple as a smile. When I'm having a super tough day, a simple smile is all it takes to help me lighten up. =)

Oh sweet one,

Thank you for stopping by and leaving encouraging words. The only thing anyone of us can do is CHIP AWAY at our goals. I am learning that these things do not happen over night and the more obstacles you have then the more opportunities you have to build your art or poetry AROUND those things that you think may slow you down. Our current U.S. poet laureate, Philip Levine did just that. While working 9-5 in car factories in Detroit, he started to write his poetry about the common worker. His poetry today is now considered almost a genre of its own. So maybe there is hope for a teacher like me to find her wings....

AND AN ARTIST LIKE YOU AS WELL!!! Have a splendid day my sweet friend! Anita

A lot of people like to focus on the bigger picture when it comes to love and relationships. I on the other hand paid close attention to the little things that make the now bigger picture wonderful.

Love is everything... and anything :)

This is so beautiful. It made me smile.
I'm glad your days are lovely. What kind of job will you get? I hope you get a new job. You'll do fine. You are always so positive.
I'm done with my exams. They went well. I went riding with Floyd on Thursday night. I think it is absolutely unfair that I like him so much! :) It's been only 4 months since we started going on dates. What shall I do if he asks me to be his gf?..I'll die in happiness.


LOVE!

Thats lovely & it makes me think & reflect on things sometimes its the little things you do that mean the whole world to someone else just because youhahve been kind

photohogger said...

Or love could be NOT baking someone a pie; if you're like me and aren't very good at pies haha :)

Great post; beautiful images.

StephieB said...

How I love that last image - such gorgeous colours all together. Such a lovely message too. For me, nothing says love more than a surprise cupcake - except maybe if it is accompanied by a glass of bubbles?!

Hugs, Stephie x

simply_kc said...

That's what I kept telling my friends. Love is in the littlest of things, that eventually becomes an essential part of the big picture. And let's not forget they often make anyone smile.
