Remember when the calling card was the way we introduced ourselves to people we met. Especially when making our way in the business world, your calling card was a way of saying, hi, this is who I am.
Tonight, I have been cleaning out again, this led me to opening a box that had an old card holder in it. Wow, each and every card held a memory or story of an encounter made years ago. Some contacts, I remember very clearly, and others not so much, yet each were part of that particular phase of my adventure here on earth.
The bass singer Tim Duncan was an amazing singer. The quartet was always upbeat and made music in a way that to me was toe tapping and joyful. They made their performances so “fun”, to do that they had to apply a dedicated talent to their craft.
This reminds me that so much of what we do, daily, is live our lives as best we can, PL calendar day 15 – A cheerful Smile and expression makes everyone around you happy.
When you do everything with a smile, not only you but the the people around you will feel good. Always remember to put on a happy face.
Even though you may have put your best effort into doing something you still may have made mistakes. that is why it is important to always work with a prayerful mind.
Good morning dear friends,
Our surroundings play such an important part in our lives, yet, too often we put off what needs attention, or doing, till ????
I admit to having done just that thee past months, and now.. guess what.. aaaghghgh I have to clean up. It would have been so much simpler had I done it as the days went along, but no…. aghhhhhh hands to the heavens…. “will I ever get this right”
Have a grand day my lovelies, rain or shine, we are ONE. You and me… travelers on this road of life. You make it much more interesting. You do!
Life is to be lived, life is to be shared. Never fear saying, you care. Your smile is worth barrels of sunshine that will last for miles.
The day is young and really not decided on what it is going to do. The forecast says rain and lots of it. In our area, there has been a lot of flooding already, this newest bit of rain could be a real disaster for many at risk communities. My prayers go out to all of you at this time.
Across the river on the Quebec side, the military has been brought in to help with the filling of sandbags and volunteers from all around are coming around donating their time. It is in such times that we see how community pulls together despite any differences at other times. Oyashikiri.
What you see above is my trying out a new product, seeing what it can do with a variety of molds or embossing/texture plates. The product used (coloured) is by Finnabair, called Icing paste (Prima marketing), It is through trial and error that I will find how it will work with my particular style of “working”. The challenge and opportunity of discovery. I love it.
PL calendar day 26 Put your whole heart into whatever you do, no matter when or where you are.
Don’t try to cut corners or be careless about things. Be fully responsible, completing whatever you set out to do.
What goes around, comes around.... over the years, at one time or another, we have heard this little phrase .. usually it is said and then forgotten. The Universe is infinite, we never know when, or where, but the time will come when there is “pay back”
PL calendar day 17
Have clear goals and take appropriate actions.
Always begin with a clear idea of what your goals are. Once you have pinpointed the target for your actions, things will move forward much more smoothly.
With the nicer weather, more and more people are spending time outdoors getting reacquainted with the local parks and trails. Doing inventory in the garden, what is preparing to reappear, what has been lost or not doing so well. Each day truly is a new beginning.
Happy Ancestors’ Day everyone. A month ago today, we had the service for Brian, it will be another couple of days, before he will have been “gone” two months. Somehow, time has lost a place with me at the moment. I am in a “temporary/holding” zone. It is thanks to my wonderful friends, and thoughtful neighbours that I get through each day.
I never know if I will be overwhelmed with an emotion, or find myself wrapped in a cloak of silence.
My friends seem to know just when to call or be present, for this I am truly grateful. On the surface years of wearing a “public” persona, has stood me well. At times I feel like I am cast in stone, and watching the world go by, while other times…. the sunlight just quietly misses me, letting me hide in the shade.
I am thankful for who I am today, my world is evolving and changing, I am so appreciative of you my friends, who stand by me, help me in this time of such overwhelming emotions, uncertainty and uncharted tomorrows. Thank you.
PL day 11
Be thankful for who you are today.
You are standing here thanks to your ancestors, your parents and those who have supported you throughout your life. Show your appreciation, by giving back to the world around you.
