Soften Our Walk
A flower is one of the world's most beautiful ornaments . . .
So full of life . . .
Sharing its beauty
in sunshine and rain . . .
It creates with little movement and much growth . . .
It allows the sweetness of honey in our world . . .
It is also fragile . . .
We willingly tiptoe around them to avoid a misstep of damaging consequence . . .
The human spirit is much the same,
fragile, vulnerable, and beautiful . . .
May we soften our walk to preserve the dignity of all . . .
The beauty of all . . .
Because like the flower,
our lives are short in both sunshine and rain . . .
