"Life"






Life - the condition that distinguishes animals and plants from inorganic matter, including the capacity for growth, reproduction, functional activity, and continual change preceding death.


For only having four letters -- this is a HUGE word. When I looked it up in my dictionary there were 14 definitions. The one shown here is always shown first -- and although it does describe' life' I was more interested in definition #11- 'that which makes or keeps alive; the vivifying principle'. #13 also spoke to me - ' 'one who or that which enlivens'. 



I suspect our little 'Life' Whisperer is whispering awareness of life. Reminding me that in terms of a whole universe of time how small my little part is. 



Perhaps a Whisperer's definition could be made up.  One that glorifies each and every minute, reminding us to greet this day, hour, minute, second with peace and joy. 

"Life is a mirror and will reflect back to the thinker what he thinks into it." - Ernest Holmes

  1. Maybe your Whisperer is pointing out things to notice, times to stop and give thanks...

  4. OMGosh...There is so much to think about when you think about "Life". At the moment we have been talking about the PURPOSE of life, quality of life and then there is sustenance as not pertaining to food. So your wonderful "LIFE" doll is a perfect reminder that every minute culminates to a day, a week, a year. Life is here for us to enjoy and look forward to so "find your beach!"

  5. Is anyone else having Debbie's problem? I'm not sure what would cause that or how to fix it if I have to.

  7. Profound word isn't it? and so much more than those 4 little letters..like love - almost impossible to define and so we just keep adding more words to try to understand. Love the quote. I'm writing that one down :)
