a special tool box

57c7cee1a7d92af8579ff422bed20e57In cleaning up, going through boxes, I came across a file folder from days gone by.  In the file folder I had copies of a paper I had typed and copied to enclose with special little boxes I made to send to friends.

Special Tool Box, for someone important

Rubber band to remind you how wonderful a hug is, to give or receive

Tissue – to remind you to dry someone’s tears, perhaps your own, so you can see the tears of others.

Button – to remind you to “button your lips” to keep from saying mean things about others or talking when it is not appreciated.

Toothpicks – to remind you to “pick ” out the good qualities of everyone including you.

Band-aid –  to remind you of healing hurt feelings, either yours or someone else’s

Candy kiss – to remind you that everyone needs a nice treat occasionally

Gold thread – to remind you that friendship is the golden thread that ties together the hearts of everyone

Eraser – to remind you that everyone makes mistakes sometimes that is all right

Lifesaver candy –  to remind you to think of ne as your lifesaver, whenever you need to talk, feel free to come to me

Mint – to remind you that you are worth a MINT to me!


I can not take credit for this idea, I just remember it making the rounds at the hospital I worked at many years ago.  I sat on many committees and being a teaching hospital, I also had to meet with peers in other hospitals on various matters.  This little “piece” was much talked about at the time.  Everyone thought it to be such a great idea.  Finding it again, has brought back memories of another time and place.  I also think that it very much applies to NOW.  What do you think?

It’s interesting because it’s different

Even if someone totally disagrees with you or does things differently, you may learn something from them.  Avoid getting trapped in the mindset, “this is the way it has to be” and free your mind  consider other possibilities.

 

 

Bom dia to all,  Have a great day!

Hula Hamster JOY

hula hamster xyThis precious handmade hamster, makes my heart sing.  She puts a smile in my heart just by sitting there smiling back at me.

hula hamster xThe last few days have been difficult for me.  I have found myself drifting into a state of “low drive and little interest ”   When I could I retreated to my bed,  the quiet of a darkened room and the desire to sleep.  My sleep mates were only too happy to crawl under cover and enjoy time out from the weather that was raging outside.

Today I had to go out, there were errands that needed doing, so after a lazy start to the day, I took myself off to do what needed doing.  When I arrived at the church I was surprised with JOY, the adorable Hula Hamster.  Oh what a gift.  I melted and was totally taken in by her charm.

Loving caring friendships are priceless.  JOY lifted me out of the shadows , back into the sunshine.  Olinda weaved a magic spell,   I am blown away. Thank you.  I am reminded that in life,  in a split second, the sun can break through the clouds, and all is right again.

hula hamster joyI am so blessed.  The Universe always comes through for me, when I allow myself to stumble, my friends are there reminding me, that LOVE, is always with me.  God is Love, Love is GOD and we are all ONE

PL Calendar day 6 (2019)

Past, present or future, always remember to be sincere and honest

At any time, the place where you are standing at that moment is the stage upon which you must express yourself in relation to your position or status.


In any form of expression, there are often many components that come together to get a desired effect, or to form the base for which you are about to elaborate on.  Even then, the presentation can take so many forms depending on the direction you are going at that point in time.

That is what makes life so darn interesting.  That is what makes getting up each morning so fun, yes fun.  Means everyday brings new experiences, new endings, beginnings, with each step we take, we mature, we grow. Our ability to navigate the world around us gets that much experiences.

Hey yesterday, I actually went through a car wash on my own,  I know. Most of you have done it a zillion times.  It was new for me.  I was so chuffed. =^_^=

Have a good day everyone, bom dia a todos.

Appreciation -Gratitude

PTSD Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, we have all heard of it, many of us deal with it in our lives in some way, friends, family, neighbours, work mates.  Usually someone somewhere, in your sphere, knows of, or has someone who has had to cope through a crises.  We know the weather patterns are changing too.

So many voices, so many schools of thought, everyone has a different reality. Why are some worlds lived in monochrome, and others vary in degree of colour. Life simply IS.

Same planet, different longitude and latitude perhaps, sometimes it is the same place in time and space, yet the people  involved are scrambling for harmony and balance in a world that can be chaotic at times, there is order in the Universe, but we, the human species, is often out of step.

This time of year can be very hard for those who are coping with a bout of December dis”ease”.

PL Calendar day 23   Appreciate our differences

Appreciate the colourful personalities of the people around you and enjoy their uniqueness to the fullest.

PL Principle  #2  I will not have complaints about others, matters, nor the weather.  Rather I will always be creative and will look for short comings in my own thinking and actions.

Oyahsikiri

Everything is possible when we believe!

Please add to your prayers all those who need special help.  In prayer we offer healing and positive thoughts to all, for in our life on earth we are bound to one another by the air we breathe.

PL Principle #3  I will live with a mind of appreciation towards others and things.

Peaceful moment

Sydney Australiaa quote by Khalil Gibran

Yesterday is but today’s memory and tomorrow is today’s dream

pause pushed

DSC00030.JPG

I stepped out of the car the other day, without moving, I was lost

Sometimes it happens, without knowing it, I somehow pushed pause

so while the rest if the world drives by, children play, and daylight fades away

meanwhile, I am in pause mode, and here I will stay

Till reality and memories catch up, to my odyssey in space

no mistake, what is, is.

Zen moments

image2Looking out at animals calmly enjoying their time in the pasture.

Their only thought is to BE.

Not feeling 100% I took to my bed early, I thought I would listen to my body, and simply lie down.

Life has a way of getting in the way.

PL calendar day 27

Put all of your effort into the NOW.

You can only do your absolute best right this moment; not in the past, not in the future, but NOW
