With Every Breath

With the Winter Holidays approaching, I thought I'd share a small Buddhist prayer:

With Every Breath
With every breath I take today,
I vow to be awake;

And every step I take,
I vow to take with a grateful heart--

So I may see with eyes of love
into the hearts of all I meet,

To ease their burden when I can
And touch them with a smile of peace.

Tears are running down my face as I type this. I LOVE the homecoming photos. The joy!

The ones of the dads meeting their children for the first time~whooo boy! They get me right in the heart!! Esp. picture #29. I just couldn't stop looking at the face of that soldier. His smile just lights up his face.

Thanks for sharing these!!
