Nothing like the morning sun as it pokes its way “THROUGH” the trees.

Last summer I had the opportunity to travel to Sri Lanka with the Griffin Girls Rugby team for about a month.  While there, I was invited to host three rugby clinics for the local children as we travelled the country.  The coach that arranged the trip told me to plan for about 50 children.  To my surprise, and the surprise of everyone else there, over 300 children showed up for a day of rugby with players from the U.S.  Out of the 300, I would say that less than 30 had cleats.  But, they did NOT slow them down one bit.  When I think about what children in this country complain about, I reflect on the enthusiasm, love, and respect ALL the Sri Lanka children had, it gives me…..HOPE!

No Makeup.  Mother Nature does not need makeup or anything artifical to make our world beautiful.  I saw this little flower on the edge of a freshly plowed field.  I don’t know if it is the only one that survived or spring from the ground after the plowing.  What I did notice is that this flower stood alone showing the world all its beauty.  The lesson?  Nature is beautiful, Nature is simple.  Beautifully Simple!
