Sandpiper to bring you Joy

"The price of hating other human beings is loving oneself less."

Love Everyone

 She was six years old when I first met her on the beach near where I live. I drive to this beach, a distance of three or four miles, whenever the world begins to close in on me.
She was building a sandcastle or something and looked up, her eyes as blue as the sea.

"Hello," she said. 
I answered with a nod, not really in the mood to bother with a small child.
"I'm building," she said.
"I see that. What is it?" I asked, not caring.
"Oh, I don't know, I just like the feel of sand."

And I will tell you who you are."

John Blanchard stood up from the bench, straightened his Army uniform, and studied the crowd of people making their way through Grand Central Station. He looked for the girl whose heart he knew, but whose face he didn't, the girl with the rose.

The Magic of LOVE

Love is the most powerful, magical force in the universe. There is no greater beauty and wonder than the intimate relationship of two people. Love deeply touches and opens hearts if one has ever been on love, is in love or hopes to be in love.

Sometimes love endures for a lifetime between two people. Others are only destined to experience it only for a while. But one thing is true : No matter what the outcome of the relationship is, when love enters our life, it never leaves without transforming us at the very depth of our being.

Sometimes love reveals itself in the unmatched level of understanding and friendship we share with our mate and no one else. Sometimes it is in what is said, and sometimes what is not said but deeply felt. Sometimes it is in the obstacles we must face together. Sometimes it is in how the joy we feel with our partner and it spills over to our family members. And sometimes it is in where the relationship takes us inside ourselves - places we would never go willingly; but for love, we will do anything.

Love teaches us to be compassionate, caring and forgiving. It teaches us when to hold on more tightly, and when let go. Love shows us all the ways we need to grow as a person.

There is no miracle greater than love. It is the God's most precious gift to us.

May Love open your heart, uplift your mind, inspire your spirit, and be a sweet companion on your own heart's journey. And may your life always be blessed with love.
