In the Embrace of Kindheartedness

A pleasant companion on a journey is as good as a carriage.

Syrus

Having loving companions on any journey makes any travel lighter and easier to endure. I found so much comfort while viewing this gentle man looking as if his few possessions are probably worth more to him than any precious diamonds and gold.

Whatever struggles, set-backs, health problems or simply sadness we may stumble across in living, may we find contentment not in expensive material goods and activities but purely in the warm embrace of kindheartedness.

~Hugs,

Sunshine xoxo

      When I first saw the gentle man and him hugging the dog (what a priceless expression on the dog!) my heart just melted right there on the spot.
      Glad you took a moment from your busy day Orples! Thanks 🙂

    Sunshine, I love this. The post was short; however, the message is both clear and powerful. People and pets — not things! Thank you for bringing the Light into my morning.

    Blessings,
    Cara

    Another great quote. We always worry about dogs on the street – especially in the extreme heat here – dogs cannot go in the shelters. Their owners seem to share whatever they have with their companion pets, and groups pass out water and dog food along with blanket and sandwiches to the homeless. Companionship has a value and a reward. Devoted to each other. Very touching post
