Where Hearts Grow

A L O H A From Honolulu!

Greed are the handcuffs
and gratitude is the key.
Sadly, sometimes we prefer
wearing the cuffs to
finding the keys. Craig D. Lounsbrough

We are more accustomed
to seeing pink ginger
from the side like this.

Everything that slows us down
and forces patience, everything
that sets us back into the
slow circles of nature, is a help.
       May Sarton

It takes real heart
to make beauty
out of the stuff that
makes us weep.
      Clive Barker

When we give cheerfully
and accept gratefully,
everyone is blessed.
   Maya Angelou

It doesn’t matter how
strong or capable you are;
if you don’t have a big heart,
you will not succeed.
    Li Ka-shing

Love You,
     Cloudia & Pixie
