I woke up extra early this morning, aided and abetted by my two cats. Once awake, I began my search.
With freshly brewed cup of coffee in hand, I took myself outdoors and searched there. Amid early dewy grass and glorious sunrise, I took a little time to feed and water (it’s very hot right now) various animals during the process. As far as the search went – no luck.
I came inside the house, walking slowly through each room, searching as I went. Looking at my various accumulated treasures (to me) I found nothing there. Opening my PC, I searched the web, the blogs , all the various multimedia – didn’t find it there either, although I did find a whole bunch of other people searching too.
I turned on the TV and went through channel by never-ending channels (now that was seriously depressing, because of all the worthlessness being displayed).
I checked my smart phone for new texts, contacts, but for the most part everything was repeating what I’d viewed on my PC.
I went for a walk by the river. It was soothing and refreshing, but no luck with finding what I was searching.
Returning home, I sat mulling over all my various searches when it dawned on me I’d overlooked one area. So I looked there – inside me, inside my heart and, of course, I found what I’d been searching for.
…My reason for being.
…My reason for existing.
…My reason for who and how I am.
I found love of life, love of others, and love of self.
And the reason behind all of this love?
Because I care, and I found that even on a bad day, a seemingly empty of “positive things happening sort of day” – that this is reason enough! The health of our human condition depends on the caring of …
We humans are truly one of a kind for not only do we have the ability to care deeply, we also have the very unique ability to communicate/share and give this to others.
And I find this a most excellent reason Why!

Very similar to Dorothy discovering after she went through the land of Oz, that she had the power to go home all that time had she clicked her heels and said, “There’s no place like home.” 🙂
Hi Debby, you’re right of course, although so few of us realize that early on! 🙂
I search & I think I find it.
Then – I wonder & start searching again…
I’m going in circles. Good thing my favorites shape is a circle!

Boy do I get that one RoSy! Love, love, love your new look on your gravatar! 🙂 xo
Thanks fave neighb!
xo 🙂 🙂 xo
Were you’re ears burning last night, RoSy, both Christina and I were enjoying your new picture and wishing (very much) that we could come and visit you and your family! 🙂 xo
Oh – I thought the burning ears were related to my PM hot-flashes.
Well – that would be nice.
And – Fenway would most def enjoy the extra attention too.
xo 🙂 🙂 xo
Ha, Ha! Of course he would, RoSy, and he would not be disappointed. Fenway is a real peach of a dog, and would definitely get his fair share of attention too! 🙂 xo
The treasure is ‘being’ .
How lovely of a post this is, Penny! 🙂
Thank you. It is a truth, I believe, my friend! 🙂 xx
Even I am searching for my reason
Hi Yoshiko. I think we all do search at different times in our life, or perhaps we do a little every day. Some more than others, dear friend! xx
Thanks, Penny, to know I am not alone in this
No you are not alone, ever … dear friend of my heart! xx
You are also a dear friend of my heart 🙂
Looking in the mirror can be a perfect reason for why. We each have our part to play in this world, in this life, and it may seem a minor part, but it is a major one. Each of us is a necessity to other people whether we interact with them or not. Just a smile, (especially if you are a collector of smiles ) can make a difference to someone and that is your reason for being. Someone else’s reason for being could be to make YOU smile.
Have a good day Penny
Hello Alastair. I love your words here, very wise. Well spoken dear friend of mine, you also, a very good evening and better tomorrow! 🙂 xo

I saw something inside a card once “When I heard it was your birthday, I laughed so much, tears started running down my legs” 😀 😆
