Another beautiful experience in my local hangout, Barnes and Noble.  I have been sitting here with earbuds in listening to beautiful music and reading.  Suddenly a little boy with blond hair came up to my table.  Cute as can be.  His mom smiled and walked him away.  I smiled at him.

Finally I had to go to the restroom.  When I came out and heading into the main part of the store I saw him and his mom again, several feet away, but facing me.  He started walking toward me.  I smiled and held my arms out. Immediately he held his arms out and ran into mine and let me pick him up!!!

What a joy.  His mom smiled.  He is 2 and a half years old with wispy blond hair.  His name is Brody.

Brody made my Heart Smile.  And now when I think of him my heart has the biggest, warmest smile.

Thank you Brody.  Heart Smile

Reedy River, Greenville SC by Ann Marquette

Years later I still remember
Standing in your kitchen
I was tired from a long drive
And visit with friend in nursing home

You took me in your arms
You held me close
A strange thing happened
I felt completely at home
There in your arms

Years later I found the place
Where I really feel at home
And then I remembered
This city is where you lived

I remembered the strangeness
Of feeling at home in your arms
Then I smiled, realizing
It was only a sign
Of something wonderful to come

I thought it was you
I never felt that with anyone
So, I thought it was you

It wasn’t you that was home
It’s the city you lived
Where I feel at home

Thank you anyway.
