Day of appreciation

There was a time when life was simpler – when all we did was get up and go to bed our days were filled with learning about life, what was, what would be, Dad was the breadwinner the philosopher, photographer, gardner, Mother was the person who grounded our realities, dressed us, prepared our meals and when Dad passed away at a very early age, had to learn about being a single parent and bring up 3 daughters on her own. Humble beginnings… life was .. and will alway be, the moments we live, learn and experience the start of a new day.

Today is Thanksgiving (Day of Appreciation) in Perfect Liberty, but to each and everyone reading this, I ask you to take a moment while you read this, and just remember a happy moment in your past….who was in your life then, where were you, close your eyes just for a second, and smile at the memory, whisper thank you… it is such rewarding moment. Thank you for sharing it with me …

I live everyday with gratitude in my heart. Dad was a believer in family and community, he instilled in me a life long habit of always reaching out with a smile to strangers, I was the eldest and got to go with him almost everywhere .. he didn’t hold to I was not a boy, I was his daughter and he wanted me to grow up being proud of who I was, and to accept that others would find me “different” but that was their loss and not mine if they couldn’t accept that I “looked” different than they did. He taught me to be proud of my heritage, and to love the country I was born in. I am Canadian, born and raised, I love the many blessings I have had, in some cases “earned”…

Today in all PL churches internationally, service will be at 7 pm. whether you are in Japan, Brazil, Europe, USA, or here in Canada, we will gather at 7 pm and offer our gratitude to our ancestors and those who have shared in (been a part of) our lives.

Be grateful for everything. If you see everything as material to express gratitude, you can encounter a number of opportunities you are grateful for.

Caught between two worlds.

Frozen in Time

The turning Point is Now. Life is a sequence of moments called now. you have the key to turn yourself around.

Good Morning ?Hola!

“Don’t worry, I’ll come to you”, as he/she makes its way towards me, there is a huge puddle (maybe two and a half car lengths and maybe a good 4 -10 inches deep in places) between where I was getting the feed out of the back of my car. I did wade the water and he/she followed me back to the upper area where the other birds were all feeding.. The water could be a problem I heard grumbling that recommendation could be made to shut the parking lot down while it is so “wet”. This morning while it is still on the “cold” side, I’ll brave the darkness and head out soon. The water may still be ice.

BTW, am not a big telly fan, but while I waited last night to meet up with friends, I sat and watched a taped segment of The Masked Singer… I missed the performance but at the unmasking .. I was delighted to see Dick Vandyke, he is 93 now.. wow.. he was still so vibrant and full of energy. His voice was still holding up, he did a few bars of the Mary Poppins song, superfragilistic superallydocious. Inspiration for sure.

We all, no matter our age, have noticed how with each passing year, our bodies show signs of wear and tear. 93 .. yes he looked fragile, but he was never a heavy or big man, he was always tall and lean. Kudos to him for doing such a high energy show and allowing us to enjoy him once more.

That is what life is about isn’t it. Taking each day and doing our best to live it in the most memorable way we can.

Be mindful with Prayer. If you work on things with a prayerful heart, there will be many things you can be taught.

Have a wonderful day dear friend, wherever you are, whatever you are doing, know that someone cares and is wanting only the best for you, today and always.


The path to achievement is “to start with what you can do” Try to find out what you can do towards challenges in your own situation. This will pave the way for achievement.

A friend sent me a picture of sign taken somewhere.. I actually thought.. hmmm this is cute.. so here it is..

Ok.. how about this one…

It’s Friday… what can I say… Have a great start to the week-end!

Thursday doors

The Hull Armories, I had to pass by this building and grounds every day as I made my way to school and in later times to work. Early evenings and week-ends we would see cadets parading or being put to some kind of “task” or “routine”. Now except for the odd event, we see little activity there on a regular basis.

Time has a way of changing circumstances and the world around us.

So we learn from our past. Does history not provide us with valuable lessons, so many of us have lived through times where in some parts of the world, human beings are not always kind to one another, yet under different skies and circumstances, these same people would walk side by side in peace .. even indifference. A door opens both ways, we have a choice, to enter, leave, or walk by. A door is a reminder that we have a choice. Choose wisely.

Good morning world. I didn’t jump out of bed this morning, but at least I was motivated to get up .. yesterdays “happy moment” with my turkey friends.. has given me the nudge needed to leave my warm bed and sleeping companions (whippets) to get ready for an early departure for the woods.

We’ve had a bit of a return of a cold snap. When I got to the area yesterday, I again was a shade late, they were on their way back into the wooded area, I could see their tail ends sauntering through the trees, picking their way over the snow. (the picture above is from last fall). There were at lest 5 of them, I reacted, I called out to them like I did last year.. a beckoning call I used… (sweet talk) with coaxing and air kisses.. darned if two of them didn’t stop in their tracks.. to listen. I was encouraged, my heart may have even sped up a bit…

“Come to me, come on… look what I have for you…” (bribery pure and simple) the two that had stopped, actually began to run back towards me… they had to have been from the group that I fed last fall. The happiness and joy they gave me by responding to me and coming right up close .. after months of being away from me… tugged at my heart…. I couldn’t have loved them more…

I will always marvel at how Nature has a way of showing us that we are all part of the Universe and kindness and pure intent (sincerity) (makoto) are what will bring about positive results/moments in our lives.

Make the best use of materials and money. You can do different things as materials and money play t heir roles. How to make them work is important.

Do everything willingly and joyfully. Your upbeat attitude will make things more cheerful and enjoyable.

today 15th.

Good morning everyone, this time change is not happening smoothly – my darn body just doesn’t want to go along with it this time. I don’t recall having this problem before. I simply do not want to be out driving in the dark, and at this time of the morning it is D A R K .

LOL.. the calendar is supporting me on this….

Express your feelings straight away. It will be good if you could express your feelings as they are to people around you, when you are happy or when you are troubled. Also it will be a good chance for you to get to know others.

‘m late..

What happens when you are late for an important date.. and there is absolutely nothing you can do about it. With the time change the body just doesn’t want to wake up any other time but when it is used to doing so. it woke on time, it is the clocks that are wrong. bah humbug!

“Respect the existence of each other… the world consists of people with different circumstances and different lifestyles. Respect and understand each other.” PL 2023.14

bom dia! good morning.

Imagination. where would we be without it?

Free yourself from being overly attached. Overthinking hinders ideas and actions.
