It takes hands to build a house, but only hearts can build a home.

Chapter 4, Page 17, Book 13
I held a moment in my hand, brilliant as a star, fragile as a flower, a tiny sliver of one hour. I dripped it carelessly, Ah! I didn't know, I held opportunity.
WORD FOR TODAY:
Very bright and radiant.
One of my sons said that from now on he is using the word brilliant instead of using the word awesome. The word awesome truly does get over used by a lot of people. On the other hand, we don't hear the word brilliant half as much. Yet it does describe a whole lot of different things and people
People are considered brilliant and so are colors. Stars are thought of as brilliant and so are ideas.
To be kind is more important than to be right. Many times, what people need is not a brilliant mind that speaks but a special heart that listens.
There is a brilliant randomness in every day life. The ordinary can often be the most of extraordinary things in our lives. There are plenty of brilliant things in our lives. Like all the shiny and beautiful new things that happen every day.
It makes you wonder. All the brilliant things we might have done with our lives if only we suspected we knew how.
One of the most brilliant aspects to my life right now is my age. I am no longer young and with that comes the positive thought that right now the future is far less daunting than ever before. I love being able to say, I'm old enough to be your grandmother. In fact, I am a grandmother of many. Grandchildren are just one of the many blessings age brings.
I am thankful for the brilliant moments that each day brings with it and for plenty of time to enjoy the view and relish it all.
