Baby Smiles

Wednesday, July 30, 2014

Baby smiles are the most honest smiles

Either a child likes you, or not.

When you open your heart up to a child, you are often rewarded with love in return.

Take the time to smile at someone today, then watch for the smile to come back to you!

    It's so true - a baby either likes you or they don't. And when they like you, it is simply emoticon

Take your TIME!!

Monday, July 28, 2014

Don't rush through the mountains~
Life is a journey, not a race!

Notice the flowers and the fields,
Trees and shrubs.

Feel the soft breeze, and
the bitter cold rain.

Hike and run,
but do not rush

Past the mountain experiences of life.

    Very nice!

And hiking is so much more than reaching the top! I think it's more like the Ralph Waldo Emerson quote: "Life is a journey, not a destination."

    Sounds nice, but I always go up a mountain with people who want to hurry and get to the top! Plus I always have to be looking at my feet on that way up, and the way down, of course. I'm so glad for the view at the top when it's time to stop and eat a bite though!

    Photos from our hike up to Mizpah Hut in Bretton Woods, NH. We volunteered at the hut, and also hiked Mt Pierce and Mt. Jackson.
I wrote this poem while helping people at the front desk at Mizpah.

Hiking boots

Sunday, July 27, 2014


I just got home from a 4 day vacation with lots of hiking in the White Mountains. I volunteered as the Information Volunteer at Mizpah Hut on the Appalachian Trail.
What fun!

    Nice. And it's very true- hiking boots let you have a longer stride and protect your feet much nicer than other footwear! :)

Choice, Chance, Change

Thursday, July 24, 2014

It all starts with making a choice.
Decide what has to change.
Take the chance!
Put forth the effort to become something better!
Change will come based on our decisions and our effort to commit to them.
