Happiness is

nature’s natural beauty

It had started to rain, small droplets fell on my windshield, I was prepared for a downpour.. but.. no, the rain stopped.. I looked over to my right and saw the tall grass and the trees with their fall colour, and couldn’t resist.. I pulled over and got out. Traffic be darned. As if on cue, the traffic trickled to zero. I was able to stand there, admire the beauty… and take in the moment without the sound of tires on pavement.

Moodie is a busy road but I was blessed with a quiet few moments, and for that I was truly grateful… it was such a refreshing and rather intoxicating moment. I had been having a busy morning, productive, but busy .. the few moments of solitude, surrounded with natures beauty… was energizing.

Let’s find the joy in everything. Are you looking for things to complain about? Let’s change our perspective and live a cheerful and joyful life.

someone was creative!

Love is…

cherishing all that touches our lives.

In celebrating life today, I give special thanks to all of my friends, family and people I meet everyday for making this world such a unique and wonderful place. Recently said goodbye to a very special woman, altho’ have /had never met her personally, I know her son. Knowing him has brought new dimension into my life. Our friends do this, they bring us face to face with our own vulnerability and our coping mechanisms.

They are there for us when we didn’t even realize that we so needed them. Life would be empty without the “family” of friends and acquaintances that touch our lives regularly. May all the richness and blessings you share with others, return to you 100 million fold.

my babies at the beach yesterday

Had the beach to ourselves, I made time to sit and pray. I reflected on my last year, and my coming year, my friends, how my life has changed, and where life is taking me. I am grateful to each and everyone of you. The interactions differ but the one constant is LOVE.

Love is endless… it is what will unify the world and bring PEACE

Expressions

Always express yourself for the happiness of others as well as yourself. The happiness of those around you can lead to your own happiness. Cultivate a heart to always wish for the happiness of others.

Offer your services instead of expecting from others. Take the initiative to do what you can to help others. Understand their needs and act swiftly.

Rocks

I have a soft spot for rocks. There is something about a rock that seems to be so attractive and mysterious at the same time. I have never come across a rock that I have not enjoyed meeting. They come in all shapes and sizes, for sure some are more valuable than others.. depending on their composition… For me.. they are story tellers. Each one has its very own unique story line. This group with the water as a backdrop appealed to me, I studied it for some time. There was a seating area near by…

is this not inviting?

I dared not sit .. I wanted to badly, but I was not dressed for the brisk freshness of the early morning. It will be my “destination” on another day. the above rocks are just off to the left of this wonderful chair. I picture myself there on one of our famous “indian summer” days lazily allowing the day to wash over me.

Treat today as if it your first time around. Just because you succeeded in the past ti doesn’t guarantee that things will go as smoothly this time around. Every day, each moment, there is a new challenge to face.

I will get to see the rocks in a different light, I will be curious to see if the same images appear. Enjoy the coming week… Sleep sweet dreams this evening, and if it is morning when you read this.. have a stunning day!

hidden gem

play of shadows and sunlight bring natural beauty to light

Having a clear image is the first step towards accomplishing your goals. What do you want to accomplish and by when? The more concrete your thoughts, the easier it is to make it a reality.

stump sculpture.

I love you Babe!

The back of the stump appealed to me the most. I walked around several times, taking my time, wanting to experience every dimension of what I was seeing. It sat on a vacant lot that had been for sale, I saw a sold sign on the real estate sign I hope that doesn’t mean that the stump will disappear.

I hope in clicking on it, you can see how much darker the backside is. Does it look like man had a hand in shaping it.. or was it cut down, and then left for nature to do her thing. ???

There are times in life when I think I feel like that stump. I have no reason for being where I am, except it is where I have ended up… and while life goes on around me.. my physical appearance changes, but inside, I’m like a piece of wood. 1000 stories to tell, and no way to have them heard.

I pulled out a calendar .. like I would the I Ching, closed my eyes and flipped to a page.

Always live with a kind and generous heart. Show love and embrace others’ good points, and be willing to overlook their faults. One who has a generous heart can live a fulfilled life.

Yesterday, the back yard was glorious in bloom with the new buds from the magnolia. This morning I was out raking up all the fallen petals at 5 a.m. before the heat of the day. Nothing ever stays the same. Enjoy every moment of your day, you can only live it once.

BE a person who can recognize the sincerity of others.

When you put your whole heart into things, you will be able to notice the sincere acts of others in the subtle things they do, and appreciate them that much more.

Oyashikiri

I’ve been seeing all the FB avatars popping up .. for a bit I got caught up in it… then realized I have my own avatar(s).. and she has been with me awhile, so.. I’ll just show her off. LOL. I don’t need to do another AV, just because you all have discovered avatars. /P

April 5 – your smile

hide-away

Your smile energizes the people around you. A smile has the ability to put others at ease and give them energy. Strive to be the first to offer a smile each day to those around you.
