My Most Beautiful Thing
There's something in the water today, a splash of love felt throughout the World Wide Web. Do you feel it? Would you like a bit? Please take a seat and let me explain.
Fiona Robyn, creator of "small stones" and co-founder (with her husband Kaspalita) of the Writing Our Way Home writing community, has written a novel The Most Beautiful Thing. It is free for the Kindle on Amazon today and tomorrow. I loved it and I'm sure you will, too.
So the splash is actually a wave of blogs spreading the news and sharing with the world their most beautiful things. Read more about it here.
I've been thinking for weeks about my most beautiful thing. The key word here is MOST, which means ONE. There are many things dear and beautiful to me; how could I choose just one?
Of course my family was tops on the list. I decided to ask them what their most beautiful things were in hopes that I could weasel my way out of this debacle. Here are the answers I received.
Andrew: A sunset
It was getting down to the wire and I was starting to have a panic attack. My children are so very precious, as is Pete. My present life is very dear to me because without it I would have nothing. Cardinals (you know how much they mean to me) and other birds are so gorgeous. I love the beach, nature, writing, reading, blah blah blah-ing.
That's when it hit me. I knew what my most favorite thing was. It's LOVE.
Love is my most beautiful thing! Without it, where would we be? Love is in the air we breath, the mountains we climb, the trickle of a river on a quiet wooded path, the sound of laughter in the park. It's childbirth and death; the circle of life. Love is being at peace and knowing all will be okay. It's trust, hope, forgiveness, acceptance. Love is God. God is love.
Now I've told you my favorite thing. What's yours?
