What should have been a day of celebration turned into some that made all of us sad, mad and confused.
I wandered onto a bookstore and I picked up a book. 'An Awesome Book' by Dallas Clayton. It didn't make it all better but it made me smile. And, It appealed to me. A LOT. What does it say about me that I a grown woman, with no children, loves children's books. Especially ones colourful and lovely as this one.
I looked him up when I got home. He made my heart a littler lighter. And, I thought I would share with you, my few readers. I hope he speaks to you in some way...
Be kind to the wishers who haven’t got wishes.
Be kind to the fishers who haven’t got fishes.
Be kind to the beginners who haven’t got ends.
Be kind to the strangers who haven’t got friends.
Be kind to the walkers who haven’t a shoe.
Be kind to the talkers who haven’t a clue.
Be kind to the outsiders and insiders too.
Be kind to the kind kept confined in the zoo.
Be kind in your mind and in all that you do
And you’ll find that mankind can be kind to you too!
