Learn from the Animals

Kindness and gentleness are always the best options. Surely, I can put aside petty grievances and try to find common ground. 
This week I'll focus on sharing kindness and finding grace in others. 

Denver Zoo, March 2012

    Good photos by the way. Did you and the kids do the zoo on spring break?

  15. I've never been to the Denver zoo, but I've heard such good things! The tigers are so handsome.

    You asked about my twins - they share equally when they want to. But they also have their days ;-)

  16. We can certainly learn so much from the animals. We can learn discipline and hard work from ants.
    Wonderful pics and post. Have a nice day Barb:)

  17. Such beautiful animals -- and a lovely reminder of a universal truth!

    Hope the snow is all gone and you have some Spring for the weekend. Happy Easter.

  18. Hi Barb,I think I want to just soak up the sun just like these beautiful creatures, just lay down and nap all day and go into my den once in a while....but just imagine, they are actually people watching...one of my favorite things to do when at the zoo. LOL another favorite thing to do is go to a restaurant and make up stories about others. Just like in the movie First Date. Hubby and I find it entertaining (we do it in a very nice way of course), and I wonder how many people do it????and what stories they are thinking about me and hubby...OHHH if they only knew LOL........
