Words in the Wild

Neither one of my sons will be home for Thanksgiving, which is what happens when they grow up, have jobs, begin to live their own lives, and move far, far away. That is okay and as it should be, but that doesn't mean I don't miss them (very much).

On Saturday morning I made a batch of chocolate chip cookies and packed care packages for both Ryan and Justin with the cookies, some candy corn, new flannel shirts, and a few other goodies I thought they would like. I taped them up, printed postage, and headed to the post office before they closed.

On my walk through the park I was brought up short by some words in the wild.

This is a small park in the middle of  a tiny town, but it has lots of pathways. I wish I could show you a big picture of how many times (probably hundreds) peace and love had been written on the bricks of the walkways. It was a lovely and uplifting sight.

Maybe, just maybe, after footsteps and rain begin to wear away some of these words, someone might possibly see how the words
peace, equality, fairness, and kindness fit on the bricks ...


  1. Little bits of good . . . for sure!

  2. Perfect. And, the best answers ever.

  3. What a wonderful thing to come upon...we certainly need more of it!

  4. An important message, I'm glad you shared it with us.

  5. All perfect words to think and share at this time. Your action speaks loudly.

  6. OK. Now I want to go do that in the small park in the middle of my tiny town!! How lovely and uplifting.

  7. you live in a hopeful area and I love the messages that you found on your walk. Your boys are lucky to be receiving some love packages!!

  8. Amazing! Our world needs more of these messages,to absorb into our consciousness. I'm going to bring a piece of white chalk with me today when I walk in the lake, forest park ♡

    Peace everyone. Btw, and certainly not the least, I just listened to the beautiful "Dona Nobis Pacem" video. It's now stored in my smartphone & I will pause & listen for a peaceful break every morning.

    Ty ♡
