I’ve just realised that I walk past this wooden bench every day and that it fits Jude’s March challenge for her bench series.
“Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen.”
– Winston Churchill
This is very appropriate in my world today!
Jacqueline at http://taoofscrumble.com/ has passed on a challenge called ‘spread the love’ which apparently began on Valentines Day. The idea is that you write ten sentences, each with just four words, about love. She quotes some of the clichés that have become part of our world through pop culture, ‘All you need is love’, ‘Love is in the air’ etc, and I have to agree with her that four word sentences are difficult to come up with. Here are mine.
Love an open heart
Love given out returns
The souls key? Love
A true love endures
Love removes all barriers
Don’t limit your love
Wrapped up in love
Ready? Feel the love
Dancing stars of love
Mind full, mindful love
The other part of the challenge is much easier, except what to choose? We have to post a poem or favourite quote about love, and I’ve chosen one from Rabindranath Tagore. As a mother and mma it sits well with me.
Children are living beings – more living than grown-up people who have built shells of habit around themselves. Therefore it is absolutely necessary for their mental health and development that they should not have mere schools for their lessons, but a world whose guiding spirit is personal love
Like Jacqueline, I’m not going to nominate anyone to take the challenge but if you want to know how visit Meg who started it all! http://megevans.com/2015/02/23/spreading-love
