The World Is Still a Beautiful Place




"Be soft. Do not let the world make you hard. Do not let pain make you hate. Do not let the bitterness steal your sweetness. Take pride that even though the rest of the world may disagree, you still believe it to be a beautiful place.​​​​​​​" Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.
My dog Bounce wearing his new Hawaiian shirt at our family July 4 celebration which was at my house on July 2. The shirt is a gift from Julie and her two dogs. Four people and three dogs and one cat gathered together. You see, the world IS still a beautiful place. 
Ha ha, a couple days after I posted the photo, I cropped it and added it above.

Yes, it is, Terra. Sometimes we have to look, but it usually is within a hands reach. We should never give up hope and always find a reason to laugh and days will always be brighter.

Love the shirt on the pup! We just had our immediate family (the 5 of us) here for the holiday, and the 4 dogs. Unfortunately, one dog, our biggest boy, is terrified of fireworks and thunderstorms. That's made it a bit stressful this past week, with both fireworks and major storms in the area.

Some days this is easier said than done. I will definitely keep it in mind though. I like the sentiment. :)

I will settle for that, Terra!! God gave us the ability to enjoy the smaller things and Ignatius tells us in his teachings to add every ray of light that comes our way, to the daily life. That dog really was a blessing, I keep saying it!! Little fine boy! What a lovely quote too, I am no good with poems and quotes, I often use the Scripture for quotes but you need quotes from people who actually enjoy and interpret what God gives. The world is still a beautiful place, amen to that!

Great quote.....finally catching up as I catch my breath here in Lancaster PA while attending a conference with my husband. Traveling from "there" to "here", I agree -- the world IS a beautiful place ♥
