Dona Nobis Pacem - Grant Us Peace

Dona Nobis Pacem - Globe

Today's post is dedicated to Peace. Not only to world peace but also to finding peace within our own busy, hectic lives.

Within busy lives
And times of suffering
May you find peace

~ Savvyology

Inspired by a bowl of handcrafted marbles & the gentle nudge of someone she loved and lost Mimi, of Mimi Writes, started the Peace Globe Movement. I encourage you to visit her blog and create your own Peace Globe. Get involved and join the movement.

Here is a copy of the letter I wrote to Mimi when I created my peace globe, which I've dedicated to my son.

Hello Mimi,

I'm sending you a copy of the Peace Globe I put on the sidebar of my blog. Your story & the movement are touching. I've placed a photo of my son on mine and a line from a haiku I wrote, which also happens to be part of my blog title. My son was born with a life threatening condition, defied the odds (we were told he had a 5% chance of survival), and is here with us today. In spite of the multiple challenges he lives with, he's a happy guy. Over the years, he has taught me some of the toughest life lessons I've faced and worked through. It's because of him that I learned "moments matter most", to let go of yesterday, and not worry about tomorrow. It seemed most fitting for me to place him and those three words on my Peace Globe.

I remember that letter and how it touched me. I visit here as often as I can and am always impressed with the level of quality blogging and commitment to art.
