Candid Cameron: "A Bit More"

A Bit More
by Cameron Sullivan

Smile a bit more broadly.
Hug a bit longer.
Respect a bit more openly.
Laugh a bit louder.
Say thank-you a bit oftener.
Make love a bit slower.
Help out a bit better.
Walk a bit lighter.
Move a bit more gracefully.
Give a bit more.
Forgive, and forget, a bit sooner.
Wish a little.
And pray even more.

Please forgive my waxing poetic. But this reflection came to me tonight as I was quietly thinking about the people of Japan,  how their lives are turned upside down, and how all the world will surely be affected in some way by this disaster. I was reminded that we ought to stick together - a bit more. And that I should remember, a bit more, how grateful I am for all I have, all the people I love, all that I am, and all that is beautiful in this world. Simply, for life.

Thank you so much for reminding us all to be grateful... always grateful.

Positive energy, thoughts, love and prayers to our brothers and sisters and to Mother Earth.. I pray that the suffering stops... so that healing can begin.

Peace and love. Brenda Dronkers
