Wordless Wednesday -Achievement

VaughnAd_CDF

I am very proud of Steve and Paul,  their achievements with the dogs that they breed, raise and share their home with.  Our whippets come from their “home”.  They are so dedicated to their “family”. “Achievements” such as the ones that they strive for, are met only with hard work, focus and total commitment.  Main ingredient is LOVE.

When we love, truly love, unconditional love… it will reflect in all we do.’

PL Precept #15  All is a mirror

When we experience a negative encounter, it can set us back, set us to thinking, how on earth???  why????? and whatever other question comes up in our minds, try to understand how we walked back into the negative trap.

First accept responsibility, had you not said or done something, the incident might have been avoided.

No, you doing avoid, the issue, you avoid the negativity of it.  Everyone is different and unique, not everyone sees the world through your eyes.

The choice becomes yours, it is your responsibility to remove the negativity from your immediate “moment”.

Some lessons are harder to  learn than others.  We have to recognize what will put the trigger in striking distance, and shift, or walk away.  Life is too short.

Sometimes we like what we see in a mirror and other times, it is best not to look if we are not ready for what we will see.

what to do?

memory candle for Brian

What to do when your day starts with a “bang” (unpleasant one) and then more or less continues on in similar fashion.  During the 10 a.m service today, (Day of Peace) I found myself crying thinking of what happened early before I got to the church.

The dog got his tail chopped off by a closing door.  My precious baby.. yelped,  then I saw the piece of tail on the floor and the trail of blood as he escaped into the house.  Such misery, such helplessness.. I could only react. Meanwhile his sister who is white, was now looking like a red dalmatian and blood was everywhere, on me and on the carpets. Didn’t matter all I wanted to do was pick him up and hold him to me… of course that did wonders for my outfit.  When I finally got to church, I realized that I still had blood on me, and my clothes.  What a sight.

Fortunately the vet made a house call.  I was so relieved.  We are all resting comfortably,  the human will be taking to her bed very early. Oh dear, just remembered have to check on the laundry.  Used cold water. back.. looks like all the stains came out. ahh sigh.

PL Calendar, day 2    Be Forever young and seek new challenges

The world is constantly in motion and never rests.  Keep your senses sharp and be ready to adapt to the ever-changing world.

During all of today’s “activities”, I picked up the memory candle from the Funeral home, isn’t it pretty, there is a small compartment that is sealed under it.  During the service, the candle is lit.  I had never seen these before.  I am comforted that it is home with me now.

Life is what it is.  I need to slow down, and let my journey set the pace for peaceful healing.

club challenge

Once upon a time2

Good morning everyone…

A couple of weeks back I was reminded that the club challenge, or “theme” this year was Once Upon a Time.  As you all know I am rather occupied these days, getting to know first hand living with cancer in my LIFE.  However, the idea was one that stuck with me for a for a few days,  & I found that I was gathering up “pieces”  in my “studio”.

In PL you know there is Precept, # 19, BEGIN ONCE YOU PERCEIVE

I reflected on how once the bathroom was a very “NEW” concept in a lot of homes.  there was a time when people used an “out house”  Some were very primitive, but they were a place where one could have privacy when needed.

When people could afford the indoor plumbing, it was often something that had to be fit into an existing home.  Reinvention of space, closets were repurposed, or a larger room if the family could afford to do so was partitioned for the new plumbing.

Toilet, sink, was for the most part what went in, some homes could accommodate a bath tub, but not often,  Families of 4,5,6 even more, lived in small 1 and 2 bedroom flats. The war-time houses were usually small two,three bedroom bungalows. Kitchen, living room, small bathroom and  two bedrooms.

The bathroom was really the only room where when you went in, you were alone, at least for a short time.

Then came the telephone, it was only available here and there, when you got one in your home, it was attached to a wall, or smack in the living room.. no such thing as  much privacy,.  Then the extensions came along, and you could put a phone in another room, the younger generation would try to pull the cord into the bathroom so they could have   conversations with their friends without being overheard by siblings and/or adults

Dad got to read his newspaper in quiet, till the room was needed by someone else. Once upon a time the bathroom was a very “special” place.  Now in modern homes, in today’s society, everyone wants their own bathroom, and guess what,  it is only used for “immediate” needs (like the outhouses of old) and vacated.  Usually the bathrooms are cold, efficient, sterile and lacking in any “family” character or warmth.  They are functional!

Thus my contribution to “Once Upon a Time” was conceived and put into a visual expression.

Life is ever changing, roll with the changes, all while trying to retain the art of  “caring” (sharing)
