I asked on Instagram on January 29th:
Look what I got! Collecting beautiful quotes, clean jokes, and positive musings to put a smile faces. Send me a suggestion. I’ll share it on my board.

Today, I heard of an at-risk teenager lost too soon. A friend from college posted that she lost her dad to a year long disease. More trauma from the shootings in Florida and heard from another grieving gal just a few years older than me. This world aches with loss and reels in the after-math of things outside our control or understanding.
Today daffodils also bloomed on my kitchen table. A baby was born. The third one this week from my friends and family. New, fresh, tiny humans waiting to make this world a more beautiful place. Babies keep being born. Life continues to sprout through the dirt and petals unfold to the sun.
We exist in both of these spaces. In the dark and the light and the shadows and glitter in between.
Think on that and read these quotes reflecting on beauty. We need it in this aching, hurting, blooming world.
