RIP Helen Reddy, she cowrote I am Woman with Ray Burton. Inspired by her involvement in the women’s movement, the song gained popularity climbing the charts, she was the first Australia singer to hit number 1 in the US and earned her a Grammy for Female Pop Vocal Performance.
We also said goodbye today to Mac Davis, American singer-songwriter, who was from Lubbock Texas. Mac was known for his easy laid back songs, he also wrote for Elvis Presley (In the ghetto)… https://youtu.be/Ll8BBZCNoqk
How often in our life time will we say goodbye.. How often will we say, “its for the best”..
Like a fine wine we age, then the day comes when we simply know its time to enter another phase.. the journey we will embark on is all our own, family and friends are left behind. It has to be that way, for we all reach our journey’s end in our own way, and in our own time.
When we live each day to the best of our abilities, give thanks, and appreciate all that we have lived and learned along the way…. The final journey is a blessing well earned.
Appreciate your ancestors and their virtues. We are here today thanks to our ancestors. Let’s pay our respects and give sincere thanks to those who came before us.

Begin your day with appreciation. Welcome each new day with renewed appreciation, and step forward with a feeling of World Peace in your heart.
Yuppers today I woke up with a maudlin mind. My thoughts travelled down roads, through valleys and dales that well…just brought tears that needed to be expressed. Crying doesn’t mean I’m unhappy, it means I am reliving a series of events that tugged at my heart strings.
I talk to you all about love all the time. Love is forever moments that live on in the energy field that is me, myself and I. Crying is cleansing, to allow a tear drop to fall is to allow the sunshine in on a sunny day.
There will always be a way. If you persist and be creative without giving up, you will find solutions that you had not considered before.

Now I’m off to exercise, walk my many steps, and move. How about you! step, step, step, exercise your brain, your body, your everything. Life is for living.
Is there a sound to grief. When a loved one dies.. leaves our world leaving us to adjust to continuing on the journey on our own. No one told me of “grief attacks”or the immediate excruciating pain that can be triggered by a “memory”
I was not told to expect exhaustion and disruption, I was told that early grieving is perhaps the hardest work you will ever do.
Without your former companion, you no longer have a “mirror” to reflect back to you who you are and what you want in life. Now only you can furnish the answers by getting to know yourself.
-Dorothy Edgerton, ( learningto live alone)
We experience so many emotions after a loved one passes,when we think surely life is leveling … we are hit with an ongoing echo.. of loss, pain, and a fresh waves of grief.
Grieving requires an enormous energy, but pretending that you are not grieving requires even more.
It is important to say “Thank you” Everything that appears in front of you is all material for you to improve yourself whether it i’s food, people or things. Learn to accept everything, whether it is something you like or not.

UNCONDITIONAL LOVE NEVER GOES AWAY -it transforms from season to season. You may not always see or hear it. But like the steady beating of your heart, it lives within you and permeates all of you, forever and always
A big thank you to my friends/family and love ones, who are reaching out to me. I love you.This moment of tears will pass.. Love heals.
Trekking through an area of land that until very recently was unknown to me, it is only some 15 minutes from me.. Yes I’ve been driving by for years, and never knew his gem existed. Took a serious world ” happening” to get me to actually get out of my car and explore the area. Also.. to give credit where it is due, it took my dog taking off on me out of the car .. and heading down one of the trails with an urgent need to explore.
I took him back there today, but on a leash. He was not impressed. The little missy, balked at going out, so .. guess what.. she got left at home. Too bad so sad, was not going to insist. When Velcro and I came home, we were both full of the most wonderful tantalizing smells. Don’t know how they communicate, but they certainly seemed to be having a good exchange of information ..
About the birds, I saw flashes of colour here and there, and birds darting from one tree to another.. but was unable to get one to light long enough for me to grab a picture. What I can tell you is that right now the woods are filled with the chirping and singing of the many species that are taking temporary accommodation in the area as they migrate through Ontario.
Life is really an adventure, some chapters are easy reading, and others are jam packed with excitement, tension, and the unknown.. Whatever chapter you are in, you have to know.. that the next page will bring something new into your awareness, it will be forever unfolding.
There will always be a way. if you persist and be creative without giving up, you will find solutions that you had not considered before.
Good morning =^_^= if you have been with me along this journey for some time, you may recall this photo. It was taken around the time my husband passed away. The car was totaled. Ask me today, anything about that time, if I was hurt, what happened.. it will be two years in the spring, yet I can only give you a vague recollection. I would have to stop, and think back, focus on that time. I won’t do it. Why, because the Universe saw me through that time period. Now, I am living the experiences and adventures of today. “be in the now” (PL)
What I hold dear is the memory of the many years we had, the blessings that our togetherness was strong, that we held on to the Oneness that was US.
Are you running or standing still, are you dreaming or living your precious moments here on earth. ?? When you are faced with the turmoil and challenges of outside elements that want nothing better but to cause destruction. Are you able to say.. I have my quiet place. There is genuine love in this world, and step by step, inch by inch, those who believe in love and the UNIVERSE in and around us… will live in PEACE .
If not for the little touch of red on the latch, I would have missed this door. I did include this door in another blog it was among other doors, and thought it deserved a feature of its own.
There are days when I want to blend in and disappear. Yes it happens to me, and I suspect each one of us at some time has had that feeling.. Where you just want the world to keep rolling along, so you can catch your breath, or simply veg.
Instead of worrying do something about it. It doesn’t help to over think situations such as “what if this happens?” or “Things might up that way” Instead be proactive and change how you see and do things in each situation.

Sine my husband’s passing have found it very difficult to do some of the things that need doing. example. Going upstairs to his offices and going through paperwork. Clearing out furniture and objects has not been a problem, yet for some reason, the filing cabinets have been like the door above, I don’t seem them. If I do, I walk right by.
There are times in life, when we have to “see” the issue, and then do something about it. In my case I have asked for help. And today, I will go to church and pray, giving thanks for my blessings, and express my gratitude that I have friends to turn to, and of course, I KNOW that PL Precept # 11 Always be with God. God is always with me.
A friend passed on the other day, massive stroke, one day he was walking in the sunshine between tall trees on one of his favourite walking trails with a friend, the next day he was gone. He was liked by his friends because he always said, he was poor in material things, but had an abundance of riches spiritually and in his friendships. Caring, gentle and understanding, he will be missed by all who knew him.
Appreciate the Makoto (sincerity) of the people who came before you
Everything we have today was built upon the hard work of our ancestors and the people who came before us. Always remember to be thankful and humble and continue to build on their past successes
Church is a spiritual home away from home, and a place to find your inner=self.
Service today is at 10 a.m
Reminder, At church you can have a state of mind where you are able to open up yourself to God and candidly share what is bothering your minister(s)
ps..when you share your life with people you love, don’t forget to let them know you value them, that you love them. We only live once, when a moment passes, it does not come back for a replay (rerun) Love is powerful and enduring, be aware/respectful. Always. forever is a long time,
