A Morning Walk

I walk at dawn and take in the great gifts of life, such as song birds, fresh dew, green grass, spring rain, brisk air, sun, blue sky, clouds, plants, deer, a pond with frogs, scents, sounds, and my good health. It is soul food. Peace comes like soft wind on my face. Love stirs. Hope calls. Will this day give me true joy, grief, smiles, tears, strength, friends, bad news, luck? Be glad, not sad. Let us all work hard, play, trust, learn, teach, laugh, sing, have faith, pray, and give praise for that which warms our hearts. Thank you life!

  1. Hello, Rose; Thank you for sending me a copy of your book. I read it in two sessions, and liked it very much. Thank you for sharing your compelling story with us. I like the look of your book, too; and am glad to know of the publishing house that created it for you. I had a nightmare (including being censored!) with the first publisher I worked with (Xlibris); so for my second book, I worked with CreateSpace (part of Amazon). I will follow you, now that I know of you, and look forward to reading more of your work. Thank you again for writing your amazing story of all seven of you! What an accomplishment all of you reached in your lives! I love all of the Wisconsin authors who have experienced such diversification. I’m proud to say that I am also a Wisconsinite, even though I live in Illinois now. My heart is still up there.
