lego hero

Bom dia, good morning

Lego, Lego, it has been around for years. I never played with it in years gone by, and had no intentions of playing with Lego now. One should never say never. Lately I have been introduced to the many “wonders” of the  Lego world of activities, I thought for the younger generation, however, I have since learned that Lego is played with by the young and old, and that collectors are hugely abundant.

In my travels I came across this set. #75951 Fantastic Beasts. I thought to give it a try. It was not in the cards. My fingers lacked the coordination and my aging gray matter rebelled unkindly to my intentions.  A friends grandson, I was told was a super whiz at building Lego, and that my little 100 some blocks would be sneeze.   His accomplishments are in sets that have thousands of pieces.  I shudder at the thought, what patience he must have.  I surrendered my little horse and carriage.

And look dear friends, I have it back and it is a beauty. I am thrilled. The young man is now my  Lego hero my knight in shining armor.  I will never think of Lego in the same way again.  btw notice that the heroes are younger now.. or is it I am getting older.

How are you

 

IMG_0885While out driving the other day. I reflected on that question myself.  We are asked, at least I am, on a fairly regular basis.  I was out driving the back roads, and needed to find my way, or get my bearings.  After a while, the farm land was starting to all look the same. In other words I was getting weary, and needed a change.  Searching the skies I saw a steeple off in the distance, in the countryside here, both in Quebec and Ontario, you can always count on a church steeple to guide you towards “civilization”

It was a peaceful day for me, and certainly the quiet appeal of the church sitting, basking in the sun, added to my “mood”.  The manicured lawn and large paved entrance was a huge contrast to the visions I had been enjoying on the back roads. Another visual of the differences in life.

I am fine, thank you to all who have asked. Life IS different, my personal space has been reconfigured.  To that end, all my past experiences, adventures, and lessons have served me well.  Possibly the enormity of the change has not quiet fully dawned on me, but it is present.  I feel it, and I do intellectually “know” it.  So yes I am fine, but am I REALLY fine,I think it is too soon to tell.  No one can predict the future. And, every day is NEW.

No two friendships are alike, therefore, how I am although influenced at times by my immediate circle of friends, changes, why, because at the core of it all is ME.  And the secret I am sharing, is that Me, myself and I is constantly being kept busy with the help of the Universe, with reminders that I am never alone.  Service yesterday at the church, where the ceremony of appreciation to our Ancestors and those who have helped us become who we are, was performed.  For me was very calming and spiritually refreshing.

For that is a focused prayer of appreciation and thanks to all my family. friends, past and present who make me the person I am today. I like me, and I really and truly do appreciate each and every one of you, for you touch me in ways that transcend mortal definitions.  Love is PEACE.

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

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.
