As John Muir Says "The sun shines not upon us but in us." Couldn't have said it better myself. My daughter's smile out shines the sun. I love the pure joy. The innocence they have and their resiliency.  It's important to recognize the beautiful souls around you. Quietly thank those that inspire you. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
