The Business of Life

Woman farmer plants rice seedlings in a rice paddy field in Ghaemshahr, Mazandaran, April 27, 2008.
Isn't she just beautiful? Isn't that smile worth a million dollars? Doesn't it just bring hope to you when you see someone who works hard and is also enjoying herself? She was my reminder of hope and joy of life today. Sometimes all we have to do is to look. I looked for joy and hope today and I found this woman across the oceans and continents and through the internet lines, whispering, telling, and shouting that hope to me. Does she know she touched my heart today? Does she know her smile moved me and shook me and embraced me today, willing me to work harder and to enjoy my life more and with more hope? She doesn't know, but she does know what she's doing, I believe, enjoying it to the fullest. This woman is in the business of life, and I want to be just like her when I grow up.

سلام نازی خانم

Life is my business.
اگر اشتباه نکنم روبر مرل کتابی دارد با عنوان :مرگ کسب و کار من است.این در عوض آن.اما آنچه این زن می کارد بذر لبخند است با سرمایه امید. من چه سبزم امروز
سبز باشی همیشه

Beautiful smile! If she can do all the hard work she probably does on a daily basis and still smile this bright, we have no business ever frowning!

مشغله ی راستین زندگی بخشش است و بخشیدن. من این نوشته و این تصویر را خیلی دوست دارم و فراموش نمی کنم روزی را که برای نخستین بار آن را دیدم. خداوند بر نگارنده اش ببخشاید. آمین.ء

My Dear and Thoughtful Alef Shin:

I am so glad I was online when you wrote your kind comment, so that I could see it right away!

Thank you for reminding me of a beautiful day of my life on a day when I didn't feel the happiest! Heeh, your reminder made me read that post again and it cheered me up! Isn't that strange?

"Sometimes all you have to do is to look for hope and you will find it!" Thank you kind Alef Shin, and thank you for the prayer.
