Thanksgiving

Bom dia, good morning..

The 21st is drawing near. There is a long week-end coming up.  For those of you celebrating Easter, enjoy your time with family and friends.  It is a special week-end.  In PL we celebrate Thanksgiving on the 21st.

The Thanksgiving service is the 21st of each month.  It is the most important service of the month.  This Sunday will be a very positive and prayer filled day.  Our church here in Ottawa will hold service at 10 a.m. and again at 7 pm.  All are welcome.

Today – PL Calendar day 18

Things have a way of getting more complicated when you procrastinate.  Work on taking immediate action and you will discover many ways to tackle the situation.

spring nick v

My thanks to a dear and wonderful friend, who was out with his camera and came across these new blooms.  Spring blossoms are so welcoming, so darn full of determination .. their crisp green and vibrant yellows peeking out after one of Nature’s last snow flings.

Good Morning, Bom Dia!!

PL calendar day 14

Being considerate of others is just as important as what works for you

Always be mindful of the situation of others, not just your own.  To have a good relationship with those around you, always think of what is important to them too.

Bom dia, What a day it has been.  Problems with my e-mail have been giving me problems for the last couple of days.  After three attempts with the provider to determine why the e-mail was not coming in. and 48 hours later, they try to sell me a plan (  until then it had never been mentioned).  It would only cost me six dollars a month, and they would watch over my PC and mail (they are the provider)  Needless to say I was not a willing player of that game.  When I asked to speak to a Supervisor I was told, there was no Supervisor, they were in a meeting.  A Manager then, no sorry no Manager,  Seems manager and supervisor were one and the same.

PL Precept #4 Being annoyed limits your expression.

PL Precept # 2 To live is to express one’s self

I did get annoyed and I did express myself.

PL Precept #5  One’s self is lost by being emotional

My day started with my leaving home without my phone.  Then discovering, that I couldn’t find my phone at all.  Since I was/ am waiting for the insurance people to get back to me about the car, let us just say, it wasn’t a banner start to the day.

3 – 4 – shut the door

It is almost 8, I can close off and shut down, call it  day.  Tomorrow is another day. I am sorry I missed getting on earlier today, I hope you all had a very productive day

Let’s see what tomorrow brings.

Any one know the rest of this little ditty.

5 – 6  Pick up ??

It is all good, my son called concerned about my phone, that was a big “happy” for me.  and Leon my bbf  (wonderful caring dog) was happy to see me, content to snuggle and cozy up.  What more can a gal ask for. =^_^=

Always count your blessings come end of day.  (yes phone found)

details

Good morning, Bom Dia – Saturday

Making your way through the maze of details that need attending after an accident of a vehicle.

Insurance, claims, adjusters, customer service, sales, research collecting data, processing data, yada yada yada.

It is not a disaster, it is an opportunity for me to review my performance abilities, and use my creativity to unravel and get through the experience, one step at a time. Most important is that I do my best to meditate on what I can do differently, or what I need to work harder on to improve my skills/tools so that it doesn’t happen again.

PL calendar – day 6

Past, present, or future, always remember to be sincere and honest (to one’s self)

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

PL Precept #18  Each moment is a turning point

PL Precept # 17 Grasp what is most essential

Success doesn’t just happen       It is not just by coincidence that things go well.  The results are based on the hard work you have put in up until that moment.  Remember to be thankful and use your current success to reach the next level.

The sun has been shining, the snow is disappearing, the days are longer … been running the roads.  Love it.  Time to get out, get moving, explore, and renew!!!  Q

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

Hula Hamster is handmade and I love her.
