May peace be with you always
May peace be with you always
Yes there were better pictures, but I wanted to share my special friends (family) from yesterday. These two little girls, are such a joy and Eartha, well she and I have been friends for years.. we are like simply “sisters” from start to finish.
I can’t recall the last time I did a siss boom bah and a chika latta, chika latta chika latta Boom, cheer in a public parking lot before. It was great fun, I didn’t even remember that I knew the cheer. But here I was out in the parking lot showing little A, the footwork, jump and cheer in the parking lot. My older niece is grade A gymnast, she had gone on with her Mother to another location, or she would have outshone our jumps for sure.
Letting go, enjoying the day, and today still enjoying the glow. there is something very special about sharing time with those we love. don’t squander your days, include your family and friends when you can.. Thanksgiving is for everyday.
Good morning everyone… the season is on us. Songs on the radio, a special channel devoted to the music of the season. On the telly we have the Hallmark channel already showing their “feel good” movies. What about us, you and me, the marketing departments, the promotions, adverts, they are all prepared. In the States I guess it will happen real quick like once their Thanksgiving is over. No I don’t usually speak this way, (real quick like) but I liked the sound. The keys flowed with a rhythm.
It is early, but the snow machines are out, I can hear them rolling down the sidewalk. In some way, form or another, we have started to think of how we will portion ourselves up to be with friends, family and loved ones. On a personal level, we are not companies that can delegate and assign different tasks to various departments to reach a goal, we have to do it for ourselves.
In a conversation recently it was suggest that I be the adult and this meant in the situation we were discussing, that I should be more responsible myself. and take action accordingly. Had me wondering just what it means to be an adult. We (as parents) were the ones rushing around getting gifts, hiding them all to make “others” (we hoped) happy an surprised on Xmas day. But……………………. what about us, the individual, what is it about being an adult that sets us apart, from the ones who have dreams and wishes. Why are we responsible for making others happy.
In PL we believe that each and everyone of us, is responsible for US. If I cannot make myself happy, how can I expect someone else to make me happy. Be true to one’s SELF. We live a moment and we move on. Also we want others to be happy and we do our best to open our hearts to them. That is why we pray for the guidance to enable us to be a “good person” and to do our best for others and society. Adult or otherwise*, these are the teachings of PL.

Sometimes I save a picture from somewhere, usually I will note were I found it, this time I did not. Finding it in my folder, I thought it we a good visual for today.
Friendships are so varied, if we look at our list of friends, each is so different, with his/her own personality, and characteristics, yet when we are with them, there is that glow of friendship that happens, making whatever event or activity you are doing together.. a celebration of that friendship.
Some we see often, and some, seldom. Yet we know them and find comfort in that friendship. When you connect with another human being, keep it honest and sincere. The friendship circle will widen.
Life without friends can be very empty.
On the 1st of the month, in Perfect Liberty we celebrate and pray for World Peace.
World Peace starts from Peace at Home. Your life is part of the bigger world beyond you. Start with your surroundings and spread peace to the world around you.Perfect Liberty 2012.1.
Sometimes we see the changes we are experiencing … and sometimes, we are so caught up in living the moment, we actually see only the frame we are in.
Note to self.. focus on present, but also, expand your awareness to include more than just your SELF.
The shortcut to progress is to listen with a humble mind. If you are stuck in your own ways, you will eventually become bogged down. Let’s remember to be humble, learning what we can from the knowledge, advice and suggestions of others.Perfect Liberty 2016.4.

I awoke and still you were gone
no more we, just me
there are days when the fog is so dense
so enveloping, I remind myself you are at rest
then do what I can, to do my best – Q
Live each day filled with hope, Even in those situations when you feel trapped with no way out, face every challenge with purpose and enthusiasm and you will always find a way.Perfect Liberty 2, 2019
How many Saturdays can one have in a week. Obviously I can. When you are retired anything is possible.
Look at the marvelous day we had. The colour palette was subtle and vibrant at the same time. Truly amazing to be out in the majesty of the day.
Today being the 21st of the month we will be celebrating Thanksgiving with our PL service at 7 PM. Today’s calendar message..
Let’s be thankful for everything we have right now “Now” is an accumulation of every moment leading up to it, and everything that continues to progress and develop to become”now”. Be Thankful for everything.
Please take a moment in silent prayer today for loved ones who have done their time on earth, and are now going “home”…. Thank you.
