INTRODUCING A LEAP OF WORDS – by Cami Ann Hofstadter

A story for those of all faiths, Cami Ann Hofstadter’s ‘tale’ affirms the power of simple words at a time when we don’t know what else to do. Enter a non-sectarian Swedish prayer that had comforted many generations of Nordic children before her, to reaffirm her belief in God as the protector of us all.

As she explained to her dying husband, “This is not about organized religion. It’s about soul and believing in something beyond ourselves; that’s all. ”

Cami learned that in time of need, the gentle rhythm of words can take us to the depth of our souls where we find peace and meaning.

PLASTIC SURGERY FOR A PIG? by Lois W. Stern

Boris Gets a Brow Lift

So you think cosmetic surgery is just for humans? Not so! Boris, a 3-year-old Australian pet pig, recently underwent his own brow lift after being carried to the hometown vet on a horse float. But don’t scream “foul play” quite yet. First hear the rest of this story.

When Graeme Cane and his wife Julie bought Boris, they were told he was a miniature breed, the runt of his litter, and would grow to no more than 132 pounds. He was so small in fact that he used to walk under the belly of their family dog, Boof. But as he continued to put on weight, he tipped the scales at 550 pounds. The Kanes put him on a diet. He did lose weight, but with that weight loss came a lot of excess skin, drooping over his eyes until he couldn’t see.

For more about Boris and his family, watch this video.

If you were faced with the options of brow lift or blindness, what choice would you make for your beloved pet?

I look forward to reading your comments in the Comment box below.

DANCING WITH THE STARS – 94 YEARS YOUNG

Talk about beauty within! If you haven’t seen 94 year old Mathilda Klein on stage, you need to watch this unbelievable video.

Can you visualize yourself doing this when you are 94 years of age? Can you envision yourself doing it now?

Her youthful dance partner rocks her gently from side to side. Slowly, ever so sweetly, he helps this butterfly emerge from her cocoon. What happens next is truly inspirational. If you haven’t seen this video yet, take a moment to watch it now. Guaranteed to brighten your day.

Remember: Beauty abounds at all ages, in this case, even on the stage.
