Spiritual and Inspirational Sunday - May 27, 2012

My inspiration today has been driven by a single leaf I found yesterday.  That one leaf caught my eye because it stood out with such contrast in the sea of green that was comprised of all its "normal" companions.  One leaf dared to stand in beautiful solitude and donned a bright red cloak that screamed "look at me" and I obeyed.  We can be like these leaves; we can either be lost in the seas of mediocrity or be unafraid to show our true colors and stand out in the crowd. Just think of all the beauty and advances we would have missed if everyone was too ashamed to show that they were unique.  So, here's to those who were not ashamed nor afraid to be themselves and changed our lives or even our world.

Love this post!

Probably Dr. Seuss is my favorite here. I have always respected Bill Cosby. I think he is of strong moral value.

Have a blessed day!
