“Smile Hugs Kind Words”


Description from Frida: Humans are able to do so much destruction, hate and voilence ending up in suffering. Take a look over the world, humans, animals and plant are suffering.
We want to belive that children are innoncent but even they commits horrifying actions. Sometimes I feels overwhelmed by everything, it feels like I can't breath.
So what can we do? I think firstly that we have to take a look at ourselfs. Our heart, soul and mind. Then we have to turn to our surroundings, family, friends and moreover the stranger.
I want to belive that a smile, hug or kind words can change. It might be a help for just a second but then that second was worth our efforts.
Teach the children to love life and living beings! Even if a child seems to be and are kind (most of the time), they can be so mean when adults not around. Know I was. Yes most of the time is was kind...

So I send you cyberspace, love, hugs and my smile you have to imagine. Remember that u are all unique!!

This pick came to me today when I was out in the stable taking care of the horses, thinking of the last horrifying happenings in USA. The hummingbird represent how fragile life is, the cat to take care of living beings (though that cat makes me sad since I have used it in my cat memorial picks).
Hope you understand what I have written since english is not my first language, even if I nowadays sometimes both think and dreams in english. I also had to rewrite it because I accedently deleted it when almost finished. Ohhh now I starts to rambling...
This is just thoughts, they are not new, just a note for remembrance.

    Oh, Frida, that is so wise and kind! Group hug! I have found it is so easy to make someone’s day a little brighter. All you have to do is smile yourself and say hello or just one kind word. It takes no effort at all. We do all need to remember that we do have the power to bring change even if it is just in our own little corner of the universe. It is so worthwhile! You guys all make my day every day!

    Hi Frida, I’m not able to get on here often, because I work such long hours. I just had to write you a note about your beautiful writing. It helps me a lot to know there are people like you in the world. I also work with some of them.
    We work with children and teens, many of whom have been greatly traumatized, but can’t deal with it easily. Art seems to help them. Now the state is cutting back and many of the best and long time dedicated people left because they couldn’t deal with the new administration that has a different agenda. There are many dedicated workers forced to work double shifts up to 3 times a week, yet they are still there. They suffer injuries and verbal abuse from these angry (justifiably so) children they want to help. Yet they stay and accept the ones that hurt them. They are an inspiration to me, although I find it more difficult now that there is a lack of quality leadership. I would like to share what you wrote with some of these children and my fellow employees. It would be inspiring to them.
    Battycat aka Marilyn — P.S. (yes I feel the same as you about the animals and plants, but this is long enough for now) : ) THANK YOU
