The Oxford English Dictionary defines passion as very strong emotion, an intense sexual love, or an intense enthusiasm for something.  Do you have one passion or many?  I don’t know that I have many but, I do have several.  One of my passions is family.  As I’m sure you do too, I believe I have an extraordinary family. We are all over this country but we still stay in touch.  Another passion of mine is music.  I have been around it all my life and have found much peace, comfort and happiness in it.  When I was in the hospital there was a channel on TV that played wonderful music all night.  It had beautiful photographs displayed as it played.  I had it on every night.  The nurses came in every two hours to flush my port that the chemo was going through and this music helped me go back to sleep.  Music is good for my soul.

If you have seen my blog before you know that photography is another passion of mine.  One of my favorite things to photograph is nature.  I never cease to be amazed by it.  Just look at the colors,shapes and detail in nature_DSC0189 copyflamingoEverywhere you look there is wonder and awe.

I also have a passion for living and, to me that means that I truly want to make a difference.  I want to bring a smile to the face of someone who is sad, I want to give hope to someone who is discouraged and I want to give my help to those that need it.

I would like to know what some of your passions are.  You can reply to my blogs whenever you like.  I would love to hear from you.  I hope you have a fantastic weekend and I will leave you with this thought:  Who you are makes a SHINING difference.DSC_0344-1 copy
