Giant Boy In Paris

Love help us rise above anything. It make us feel like a giant with arms so long it can stretch towards heaven and reach for precious treasures like happiness, peace and contentment. It fuels us to be bigger than what the world expect us to become. It gives us the heart to jump and travel to places we once only dreamed about.

As my son stand almost as tall as this building in Paris, he reminded me of the many times I felt like a giant because of the love and happiness he generously gives. He helps me rise above the many challenges of life. He help me see past the skies of negativity. He helped me open my heart to goodness and optimism. He taught me to once again believe in myself and the many dreams I used to make. To open my eyes to new beginnings. To hope, to forgive, to have more faith.

As my son stand almost as tall as this building in Paris, he reminded me of the many times I felt like a giant because of the love and happiness he generously gives. He helps me rise above the many challenges of life. He inspired me to create so many Summers that I will never forget. He help me see past the skies of negativity. He helped me open my heart to goodness and optimism. He taught me to once again believe in myself and the many dreams I used to make. To open my eyes to new beginnings. To hope, to forgive, to have more faith.

Friends, keep loving no matter what. There are days when it seems hard to do so but when we look back to all the journeys we made, we realize how much love we received. A love that gave us the strength to pick up ourselves and start all over again. Time to give back that love and help someone get up on their feet again. Time to make someone feel like a giant so they too can reach above the clouds and find their very own treasures.

Island Traveler/ Giant Boy In Paris

This week’s Image Of Life is anything or anyone that made you feel like a giant from within. Someone or something that made you rise passed mountains of fears, apprehensions and obstacles.

Today, we pay special tribute to those that made us laugh to our heart’s content and run as swift as the wind. No tears. No worries. Carefree.

Thank you for sharing your day with me. Each visit motivates me to take giant leaps every time.  I wish to thank Hardik, The Guat, Doris and Dawn for their beautiful versions of red, white and blue.

What made you rise and stand tall like a giant lately?
