THIS WEEK’S REVIEW:  “Line of Serenity”

Lupe Hidalgo says, “Line of Serenity is written with the utmost love and respect that an individual can bring to their family. I was in awe of the nourishment each family member gave to one another. It is my hope that my family will continue in the path we are headed, but it is my dream that all generations in my family nourish each other for many years to come in the way that Joyce Fields’ family continues to do so. Line of Serenity is a tribute to the Nurturer of each family, that embraces each child with love and discipline and teaches us that at times hard-love strengthens our heart and soul. Fabulously written!!!!!”

Teeth of the Dog

~ Author unknown

One saint called San Francisco was walking in the meadows with some kids. It was a wonderful, clear day, with all the flowers blooming, and a nice smell in the air. But gradually the kids started to smell something rotten. It might be a dead animal.

As they walked, the smell became stronger, and they found out it was a dead dog by the side of the path. One of the kids said, “It’s all rotted.” Another kid said, “The intestines are all out.” Still another kid added, “There are ants coming out of the hollows of his eye.”

Then, San Francisco added, “It had nice white teeth.”

The Moral of the Story: Sometimes we focus on the bad things, when everything seems to be bad. But always, bad things have something good. Our days ALWAYS have the teeth of the dog; something nice to wake up for that we must try to find during our day.

Look for your “teeth of the dog” today!


MY TAKE ON THIS PIECE:  It’s easy to get caught up in the negatives that life brings.  In order to stay balanced, we have to look at the positives, too.  If we focus more on the positives, the negatives can’t seem as large.  It’s all about balance and perspective.

What’s YOUR take on this piece?
