Breaking the Silence …


“I read her eyes like
paragraphs and her tears
like chapters
for she didn’t have much
to say with words, but rather,
silence.

And never let them tell you
that silence, isn’t beautiful.
For silence is what happens
when words fall asleep
and you must carry the belief
that one day they will
wake up inside of you.”
Testy McTesterson

“When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs. When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence.”
Ansel Adams

TOYS IN MY HEAD!


One morning, our daughter Dara woke up very tired: she hadn’t slept much that night! I asked her the reason for her insomnia, she replied: “I do not know mom, I think I had toys in my head” . It was funny, but it was her way, an 8 years old child, to explain all the thoughts that trotted in her little head that kept her from sleeping. So, for her, insomnia = toys in the head!

I also had this week, “toys in my head.” No way to sleep. The reason: a lot of thoughts, feelings, emotions … in my “little” head! 

Can we say we are too blessed? If this is the case, I feel so blessed! I started to count all the blessings of God in my life and dear God, how I am grateful!

If I was these following characters and I was asked: “how do you see every day that God gives you?” my answer would be:

Artist: one day timed to a masterpiece.

Prisoner: another day to repent of my sins.

Scientist: another day for experiments.

president: another precious day to be a good leader.

Doctor: countless moments to save lives.

Romantic: another day to give lots of hugs.

A child: another whole day to play.

After all, I can be any of these characters for real, every day that God gives me !

I have toys in my head because I discover that every day is a new day full of opportunities to be a better person!
