Painting Reality

Real world only shows so much
Forming what is to be seen
Highlights painted in words and pictures
Expressing views of ideals some see
Convincing others only views of reality
Are these given changing our perception
Putting those rosy glasses for now
But peaks of reality and truth
Prevail giving chances to open eyes
Seeing and believing love wins all

Spreading Joy Letter story

[One day…one, wonderful day. I was walking in a store and came across this envelope in an unlikely spot. The envelope had writing on it. I picked it up and began to read. “For You. Yes, you!” Turning the envelope over it said, “If you found this letter, it is intended for you to open it, read it, and keep the joy carry on.” Having previously been having a trying day, there was a new sense of excitement filling my insides with hope and joy. Opening the letter, I saw more writing. It said “For Someone Special, Yes, You. This letter is written as a expression of love and joy. Know you are amazing. You are unique. You make the world shine with your smile. Your kind words and actions send ripples of joy carried by the wind reaching around the world. Hugs to you. Know you are not alone. You are loved. Enjoy your day. Joy is contagious~~~Pass Joy Along. Thank you.” As I read the words, my whole outlook on the day changed. I felt an overwhelming sense of joy spread throughout my body and further out into the world. My smile spread to others and deep down I knew I would spread the Joy through letters of my own. Enjoy.] This story was inspired by The Giving Group- Paying It Forward, Sharing Global Love Letters, and many others throughout the years. Thank you and carry the Joy on. ~PHarris
