A message from my five year old.

I think she was going to write her name, which is Bella.
(Actually, it’s Isabella, but she will be the first to tell you to call her Bella.)
But, I don’t think she finished her work.
And so the message of the day is plain and simple:
I like it.
Mostly, as we work on mastering ourselves.
Sometimes when we get discouraged, we can remember this message.
We can just Be.
Sometimes being is enough.
Being is a great blessing from God.


  1. I love it! A great message for anyone. I think I spend too much time looking at others lives (which is so easy to do these days) and seeing what they are “be-ing” and I get so down on myself for not doing as much. I am going to go BE now.

  2. This is so timely!!!!My 6 year old son can’t read so we’ve been pwrking on phonics cards. One is a whole card of she, he, we, me…etc. Anyway, everytime he gets to BE I start singing ‘Let It Be’ only I make him fill in the blank. “Let it ___….Let it ____…Let it _____…OOOH, Let it ______”We are corny beyond measure. šŸ™‚

  3. Yesterday a neighbor of mine saw me at the post office and said, Sheila were is it that you are working? I quickly responded… oh, I am not. I am just being. Then I also added under my breath… hopefully not being too lazy. Ɯ I love Bella’s art.ToOdLeS,ShEiLA
