for the bright blue sky and the soft fog and the gentle rain,
for the tree veiled in the season's first frost,
for the baby's laugh,
for the touch of a hand and the whispered "I love you."
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Miracles are the natural way of the Universe -
our only job is to move our doubting minds aside
and let the miracles flow.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Life is NOT "Supposed to be Fair."

Our only path to happiness lies in being open
to receiving whatever life throws at us -
with Gratitude. Have NO Expectations of life.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Our loyalties must transcend our race, our tribe,
our class, and our nation;

Our loved ones -
whether by blood, by marriage, or by choice -
are delicate treasures.

the beautiful butterflies of your life
will return - or not - as life intends.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie
