1: Life brings simple pleasures to us every day. It is up to us to make them wonderful memories. CathyAllen
3: Flowers and the Moon, | Comes Smiles and Joy | With Love, the Sun,
4: It is not how much we have but how much we enjoy, that makes happiness
6: All things grow better with love.
7: When I asked Vilma how many brothers and sisters she had, she said "too many to count!" What a gift to know the hearts of the children of Hogares Santa Maria de Guatalupe orphanage. I was truly honoured to attend Vilma's college graduation.
8: The simple touch is the most healing act. One soul sharing its light with another, can restore the soul.
9: If a child cries in the orphanage, a child comforts them. They have been brought up in compassion, caring and unconditional love.
10: Touch is such a natural part of life in Guatemala. It's so heart warming to see.
11: No human interaction is ever neutral, It is either healing or wounding. T
12: The children work hard picking coffee at the plantation. The whole family comes to work and live together until the season is done. They do this for the betterment of their family!
13: Our choice everyday is our attitude | Choose how you will embrace each day | We cannot change the inevitable
14: Many Guatemalan Children start working early in life, and often take part in the family earnings.
17: They all have something very special to sell, and they work very hard. Once you have shared your name, you are befriended. Listen for your name to be called from across the park.
18: A bird does not sing because it has an answer, it sings because it has a song.
19: Children share their pride in their culture through clothing, dance and song.
20: The "Day of The Dead" is a festival of culture, colour, and love for ones who have passed. Kites are created to carry messages from earth to loved ones in Heaven.
21: This is the place to journal, relax, enjoy the culture and meet people from all walks of life. | Central Park, Antigua Guatemala
