Living from the Heart

"The heart is the center of it all."
~Mama Hen
The other day Little Chick asked me if I could set up her paints. She said, "Mommy you can't look because it is a surprise." She was painting for a while and I asked if I could see. She said, "No mommy, you will love this surprise. I will let you know when it is ready." Finally she said, "Mommy you can see it now." When I came around the corner she was still painting. I squealed with delight! She just kept painting as I told her how proud I was of her. When I saw the heart in the middle my own heart just melted. The love that my daughter poured into painting that gift for me is a reminder of what it all is about. Everything we do revolves around the heart - how we use our heart, give from the heart, love from the heart and simply live from the heart.
