Ordinary Sparkling Moments

From the great book my sister lent to me titled 
Ordinary Sparkling Moments: Reflections on Success & Contentment
By Christine Mason Miller
(Forward by Keri Smith)
A few of my favorite quotes:

" I believe it is about being GENTLE with MYSELF and those around me,
about RECOGNIZING all the tender places we SHARE as human beings,
comfort, love, shelter and maybe
even the PERFECT SUNSET"
 

I realize its an older book by this author but I was in grad school and just catching up on many books I didnt get a chanc eto re3ad while my face was stuck in textbooks! :)
  
"Being Creative feeds a well that, ALL HUMANS,
we are all born with. To watch the level of abandonment with which
CHILDREN create and not recognize this deep need
WITHIN OURSELVES is a bit like trying to stay
cold in front of a FIRE.
WE CAN'T HELP BUT WANT TO CREATE.
We are human, after all.
And we all have unique creative GIFTS"
