PL Calendar day 17

Be Calm, Be Kind without compromising

Hesitating to share our true feelings hurts not only ourselves but others.  While respecting the other person’s feelings say what you need to say.

Life is what we make of it.  Life is full of challenges and opportunities.  Seize the day, make every second count.

Thank you to each and every one of you who has taken the time to write and ask me how my husband is doing.  There is nothing more that can be done to “stall” or “stop” the cancer.. it is doing what it has set its mind to do.

My husband we hope will come home this week for palliative care with a team of health care workers who come to the home, including a palliative care physician. Should it get to be too much to handle in the home environment, we will move on to the next step .

Blessings to each and every one of you.  Your caring, your support, is so appreciated. We hold you near and dear, each ray of energy you send our way is caught up and embraced with love.  We return the love to you a hundred fold. OYASHIKIRI

time moves on

When I visited the rapids the other day, I was telling my friend how it was many years ago, people sitting on the rocks, enjoying picnics on the grounds.  Now access to the water is blocked off for safety reasons.  The water is constantly churning and thunders down the channels between the rocks with a deafening roar.

It was gray and overcast on the day the pictures were taken, and I hadn’t expected the pictures to be almost monotone, shades of black and white.  They just turned out that way.  I find the pictures have a timeless quality to them, I am enjoying them, and allowing the memories to slowly filter into the present.

Today April 14th. the calendar reads..

Be a person who invites happiness

Live your life with good timing and respond quickly to whatever appears in front of you.  By doing so, things will keep getting better and better.

I believe that.  I drive by on the bridge you see there, often, sometimes, once or twice a week.  I travel that way to get to a part of the west end … I don’t even look at the rapids. With the truck windows up… one doesn’t hear the water.  Making time to actually stop and visit the park, was unplanned.  But in doing so, I have created another great memory. a “happy”

“Happy” makes me smile, “Happy” is a feel good.  May your day be filled with lots of “HAPPY”

This particular cancer is hard to treat, it is very aggressive    Think Positive

  1. Let’s try to stop it if we can from growing further            Think Positive
  2. Sorry that didn’t work,  we can try another treatment     Think Positive
  3. Body is so frail, treatments have to be stopped                  Think Positive
  4. A Blood clot has been found                                                    Think Positive
  5.  In looking to see how the cancer may have spread, we have discovered that there I water on the lung, and there is an infection.                       Think Positive

Good evening everyone, the above are words that we have been hearing for the last many months. #5 is what we were told today.  I picked up the PL Calendar for the 29th.

Be Cheerful and Easygoing

Everything has a way of turning out alright in the end.  Relax and always try to Think Positively.

How we deal with challenges that come our way, determines a lot, about how we enjoy our days, and if we are able to Think Positively.

My husband and I both would have liked the scenes we are living to be somewhat different, however, they are not.  They are what they are.  We do our best to encourage others around us, help them find their way in the “stories” that they are living.  We also make time for “us” … and our personal “selves”

The messenger doesn’t  always bring “good news”, but every one is doing their best, and that is really all one can ask. When we get over whelmed, we accept that moment, and rest.  No regrets or misgivings.  Tomorrow is another day. when it arrives, we will deal with it, one step at a time.

Whatever the outcome, knowing we have done all we can do.  When the time comes for the day to come to an end.  We will know we did our best.  Meanwhile, we enjoy each other, and know we’ve come a long way, each being whole, when sharing with the other.

This is VERY POSITIVE.

We are so grateful that you are part of our lives.  You are appreciated, each and every one of YOU.

PL Calendar #23   Appreciate Our Differences

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


Life’s journey is never a super highway, it is full of unexpected stops, and detours along the way.  Remember it is not the destination, but the journey itself that is rewarding.  When we are faced with the unexpected, stop and appreciate the diversion, it is  happening for a reason.  The details might not be clear to you at the time, but if we believe, and have faith, God/Universe will see us through. Love is unconditional.  Love sometimes is having to be different.  Let Go… Let God.

Appreciation

golden-chalice-flower-5s

Yesterday was the 21st, in PL, that is the day we do a special service of “Thanksgiving” and expressing our appreciation for the blessings we have received.

Yesterday my husband was taken to the hospital, I had called 911, and the situation warranted he go into hospital, and he was admitted.  The events started at least 24/48  hours prior to the 911 call.  Come last night I was tired, exhausted, and what I call blotto, I didn’t have the energy to really eat, but knew I had to eat.

In PL, we have a Precept, #7  Everything exists in Relativity, and Precept #11 Always be with God. I believe with all my “Being” that “God” is always with me.  When I prayed the night before on what to do, I was given a sign loud and clear, something happened that everything in me knew, I had to call 911.

When I sat depleted at the end of the day, too drained to do much else but sit and let my mind sort itself out… friends came through for me, my sister gave me a steadying voice and the church sent over   Japanese curry and rice (one of my favourites) this is a meal we all share after service on the 21st. Another friend had made homemade baked beans. The angel that brought the over is a dear and long time friend, who just sat with me and shared the quiet moments with me.  I fell asleep with the joyful love of friendship lulling me into a fitful sleep.

This morning my husband texted me.. his message warming my heart and a new day begins.  In PL we are taught to never lose faith, believe and live every moment of your life.  If there is pain, sadness, it is there because you have known true happiness, and you are feeling the other side of life.. but it reality it is all ONE.

There is no right with out left.  No yin, without yang.  When we live each day, with truth in our hearts.. there are no regrets… memories and lessons yes.. but no regrets.

Time to start another day.  All the best to you, and to all of my wonderful and thoughtful friends, near and far. I love you … each and every one of you.

Be creative, today is a fresh canvas.

O estado de alerta entusiasma       Calendario PL  #15

Being attentive makes life more enjoyable

Seja algo trivial ou grandioso, viva dando atencao a todos os detalhes.  Isso gera bem-estar.

Live life paying careful attention to every detail, be it big or small.  By doing so, you will be able to experience the subtle joy of things.

Some dreams never get completed

others fade into distant memories

when we live in the now

every moment is a dream come true
