a special tool box

57c7cee1a7d92af8579ff422bed20e57In cleaning up, going through boxes, I came across a file folder from days gone by.  In the file folder I had copies of a paper I had typed and copied to enclose with special little boxes I made to send to friends.

Special Tool Box, for someone important

Rubber band to remind you how wonderful a hug is, to give or receive

Tissue – to remind you to dry someone’s tears, perhaps your own, so you can see the tears of others.

Button – to remind you to “button your lips” to keep from saying mean things about others or talking when it is not appreciated.

Toothpicks – to remind you to “pick ” out the good qualities of everyone including you.

Band-aid –  to remind you of healing hurt feelings, either yours or someone else’s

Candy kiss – to remind you that everyone needs a nice treat occasionally

Gold thread – to remind you that friendship is the golden thread that ties together the hearts of everyone

Eraser – to remind you that everyone makes mistakes sometimes that is all right

Lifesaver candy –  to remind you to think of ne as your lifesaver, whenever you need to talk, feel free to come to me

Mint – to remind you that you are worth a MINT to me!


I can not take credit for this idea, I just remember it making the rounds at the hospital I worked at many years ago.  I sat on many committees and being a teaching hospital, I also had to meet with peers in other hospitals on various matters.  This little “piece” was much talked about at the time.  Everyone thought it to be such a great idea.  Finding it again, has brought back memories of another time and place.  I also think that it very much applies to NOW.  What do you think?

It’s interesting because it’s different

Even if someone totally disagrees with you or does things differently, you may learn something from them.  Avoid getting trapped in the mindset, “this is the way it has to be” and free your mind  consider other possibilities.

 

 

Bom dia to all,  Have a great day!

Hula Hamster JOY

hula hamster xyThis precious handmade hamster, makes my heart sing.  She puts a smile in my heart just by sitting there smiling back at me.

hula hamster xThe last few days have been difficult for me.  I have found myself drifting into a state of “low drive and little interest ”   When I could I retreated to my bed,  the quiet of a darkened room and the desire to sleep.  My sleep mates were only too happy to crawl under cover and enjoy time out from the weather that was raging outside.

Today I had to go out, there were errands that needed doing, so after a lazy start to the day, I took myself off to do what needed doing.  When I arrived at the church I was surprised with JOY, the adorable Hula Hamster.  Oh what a gift.  I melted and was totally taken in by her charm.

Loving caring friendships are priceless.  JOY lifted me out of the shadows , back into the sunshine.  Olinda weaved a magic spell,   I am blown away. Thank you.  I am reminded that in life,  in a split second, the sun can break through the clouds, and all is right again.

Finding a balance between past and the present. – Find a good balance between your present and past experiences.

Appreciate the strengths as well as the shortcoming in others.

and today’s thought.. PL. day 23rd.  Once you’ve set out to do something, it is your job.  If you accept a task, made the choice, took the option, whatever, own it.

In PL we believe that when things happen to us, always there is a meaning, or a reason, our actions, behaviours brought us to the/that moment.

buddha waits 2We are not cast in stone, we are not without feelings, nor are we unaffected by the world around us.  Change is the only constant in life, each day, each day, brings a new NOW.

Bom dia everyone, here we are mid-week, how joyful is that.  Happy Wednesday !  Share a smile it is your gift to the world

” Every time you smile at someone, it is an action of love, a gift to that person, a beautiful thing ”  Mother Teresa

flashback 2006

back yard a2006The last few days, maybe even weeks, I have found myself thinking of a different time and what was.  How a young garden, took shape, and grew till it no longer resembled what was.

back yard 2006

Life mirrors nature, the link between the two has been established since way before I was born.  I am only now pulling the fragments of the past into what I have been living and what is to come.  I can feel the stirring of new beginnings, I know that I am already well into discovery mode.

Today, day 15 of the PL Calendar – Live with firm determination, thinking that “this will turn out for the best”

Everything in this world progresses an develops.  Always be positive, knowing that everything will turn out for the best.

Yesterday I drove to Montreal, the day was bright, balmy and welcoming.  Each mile was a new beginning.  Even though I have travelled this route many times, it was like a first visit.  The landscape along the way, simply would not be still.  The shades of late autumn strutted their charms against the blankets of pristine snow.  I felt their happy waves, and delighted in the variety of picture postcards they flashed my eager eyes as I drove by. Mother Nature, stayed with me all the way, the best tour guide ever.

2006aLife is a blessing, I am filled with appreciation and gratitude.  Thank you all for sharing my world,  Life is love, and love is YOU and the world we are in.

Kejimkujik National Park, NS

Kejimkujik National Park, Nova Scotia, a very large and lovely area, with many hiking trails, rivers and falls.  Included are areas sacred to the indigenous MiKmaw people of Nova Scotia.  (photo M. Lewis)

I saw the picture on social media, and was totally blown away, especially after I found the face that was looking out from behind the trees.  I just loved the picture… so was taking a closer look, and et voila, beautiful isn’t it.  The photographer, often has breath-taking photos… this one, begged a second look.  I am so thankful, that my request to use the picture was greeted with an affirmative answer.  Another reason for considering visiting Nova Scotia again.  It has been too long since my last visit.

PL Calendar, day 12   Be cheerful and Carefree

Without putting on airs or trying to be someone you aren’t just be yourself.  This will give people a good impression of you and things will move forward in the right direction.

This world is filled with wonders still to be discovered.   Let’s go forward into 2019, with peace in our hearts, and the desire to  be in, and share more of the natural wonders in this great land of ours.

void or

gimme bling

A black void.  As an artist, I had a moment the other day, where I wanted to express that very moment,  not think about anything but saying, Blah. Snap, and so what. Followed by many exclamation marks.

My eyes searched my workroom… till they fell on a big bottle of black glue.  Ah Ha! I took an old canvas and began to just vent with the glue on the canvas.  It was black and shiny that I dug out a bottle of cut glass pieces I had for dear knows what reason… and some gold cording.  Then gave way to.. come what may.

Voila… t’is a black void.   my sometime co-pilot, when she saw it, said it looked like “inside a sparkling cave filled with shiny somethings. enchanting”  =^_^= I have been blessed with wonderful kind friends.

In the sunlight or under a light, it is true it has bling.  Bling  that winks and shines in a very cheerful way.  This is an example of, starting out with a blank – need to just vent/express…. letting go, and then seeing the results.

PL Calendar day 9 (2019)   It’s interesting because it’s different

Even if someone totally disagrees with you or does things differently, you may learn something from them.  Avoid getting trapped in the mindset, “This is the way it has to be” and free your mind to consider other possibilities.

PL Calendar day 6 (2019)

Past, present or future, always remember to be sincere and honest

At any time, the place where you are standing at that moment is the stage upon which you must express yourself in relation to your position or status.


In any form of expression, there are often many components that come together to get a desired effect, or to form the base for which you are about to elaborate on.  Even then, the presentation can take so many forms depending on the direction you are going at that point in time.

That is what makes life so darn interesting.  That is what makes getting up each morning so fun, yes fun.  Means everyday brings new experiences, new endings, beginnings, with each step we take, we mature, we grow. Our ability to navigate the world around us gets that much experiences.

Hey yesterday, I actually went through a car wash on my own,  I know. Most of you have done it a zillion times.  It was new for me.  I was so chuffed. =^_^=

Have a good day everyone, bom dia a todos.
