That day we walked back to the car, after being told that we had an aggressive cancer in our lives. I remember looking into the darkness of the floor of the wooded area, near where our truck was parked.
For some reason, this patch of land was a place that I revisited often over the months that followed. No, not physically, but in my mind’s eye. I didn’t see flowers if they were blooming, it was the greenery, the trees, the open spaces between them.
The shadows that danced across the snow-covered floor between the trees, always I saw how nature blended and intermingled. I didn’t know it at the time, but I feel it now. As time passes, I miss my husband’s physical presence more and more, I feel him and hear his words in the strangest of places, or in the landscapes I see that I pass along the way to “wherever”.
The memory of our “togetherness” is intertwined with the nature that I see all around me. Like the seasons, and the changing skies. We are no longer as we were, but always, we will BE… Unconditional love, is happiness, tears, joy and sorrow. What a blessing to have been granted the experience of a love that while of this earth, blossomed into forever.
Day 21 PL Calendar
A Thankful Person will Grow as an Individual
When you are able to have a thankful attitude, you will be blessed with good intuition and more enthusiasm, which will continue to move things in a positive direction.
Good morning everyone…
Remember my discovery of Avocado on toast, it was wonderful. Now I cheat, I buy the prepared avocado at Costco and use it on my toast. Why! well, because… I found that I would purchase fresh avocados from the grocery store, and then either they would not be ripe enough, I left them too long and yuck. I decided on the lazy way. I saw the packaged avocado dip/spread, looked at the ingredients.. and just like that it was in my basket. Sigh…When there is a will there is a way!
I learned to live (Aprendi a viver)
To practice every day (pra gente pracicar)
To solve many problems, (resolver nossos problemas)
To progress and improve (proredir e melhorar)
And so can you…. we need only to look at what we want, then look at how to resolve what we want so that we can enjoy =^_^=
It is not cheating, it is achieving… an end result that works for YOU.
We are all unique, and how we go about looking after ourselves, well… there is always a way !!!
Happy Father’s Day
to a man who was a blessing and so appreciated by those who really knew him, and shared his space/time/world.
Sometimes I wonder how my brain functions. It was bedtime. need to shut down and rest… The above link will take you to what I decided to watch to wind down. Duh, is this a case of “mixed emotions” or a tiny bit of “silly”
Bruno Mars is an “energy” that encourages me to get up and dance, move, keep fit, he makes it all look so effortless, but of course, we all know that such dexterity and co-ordination comes with hard work and practice.
The lazy me, knows that I won’t retain ease of motion if I sit around all day, and the “smart” me knows that right now… I can use some “slowing down”.. BUT whether I feel like it or not, I need to stay fit. So…. today, I may not get up and dance, but I will do my steps… walk, one foot in front of the other, and step step step.
How about you? Are you making time for YOU. or….. are you letting the world hold you down, and not looking ahead…… come on…. move it!
*********** #15 (Perfect Liberty calendar)

No, not lost where you don’t know where you are, just “lost” when you stand in one place and feel that at that moment, you are in many places. The shadows, the lush vegetation, the multiple shades of green. AND of course the almost hidden old wooden building in the background.
My adventure companion and I had arrived in Merrickville, her for ice cream, and me, for no real reason but to share time with a friend and enjoy the outing. Then I saw this place and was instantly transported to many places at once. I saw New Hampshire, the Laurentians, southern NY state, it was an amazing feeling, it wrapped itself in a hug and vanished,
Such moments are not uncommon, but they are not “ordinary” we have to be tuned in to “receive the frequency”. Be present in your every day life. Live each moment! Live with appreciation .. give thanks!
PL day 11 (calendar)
BE THANKFUL FOR WHO YOU ARE TODAY
You are standing here thanks to your ancestors, your parents and those who have supported you through your life. Show your appreciation by giving back to the world around you.
Not really but the colours appealed to me. I did however resist bringing it home. I have been busy for weeks now cleaning up, doing a major spring cleaning. So much to be done, true I didn’t need to do it right away, but, type AAA that I am, once I know something has to be done. I make it happen. In a way, I got on my own carpet and worked “magic”.. I revved up the old broom and pulled into drive.
Day 9 PL Calendar – Your surroundings are a reflection of YOU.
I believe that to be true. For over a year now, I have been unable to focus on my surroundings, it was no longer a “comfortable” ambiance.
Day 10 PL Calendar – Everyone has their own unique Personality
I have been told “not to do anything major for the next while because, whether I realize it or not, I am going through a “phase of adjustment” So…………..little by little I have been cleaning out… removing “illness” “pain” and “discomfort” Sweeping, cleaning, washing, and making changes, that enhance the “home” ensuring that the “balance” and harmonizing of “energies” comes alive again, and grows with each passing day. A home is where the “heart” is. Always, forever and always.
The next few days will be busy, on Monday the 11th. at 10.am. we will have the Ancestors’ Day ceremony and special prayer and memorial for Brian. Where-ever you are, at 10 a.m. Eastern Standard Time if you are able to, join us in prayer. What a positive VIBE it will be. =^_^=
Blessings dear friends… may the Universe shine down loving rays to warm your days and sprinkle night dreams with enriched star dust.
