orange tree

orange tree xI loved this little orange tree.  Every year I would prune it back and bring it inside so it could survive our Canadian winters.  Circumstances were that it grew very big, and we simply were unable to bring it back in.

Fortunately, our niece knew of just the right home and the little, now larger orange tree, went to live somewhere new.  Happiness is letting go, knowing when it is time to say good-bye so that life can continue to grow and bring joy to someone else.

For months now we have been trying to declutter.  We have been finding things we forgot we had.  They are leaving to begin their lives again. Going where they can be rediscovered, and enjoyed and used in the light of day.  Not stored away and forgotten.

When I see piles of this and that.. I’m heartened knowing it is temporary, every day a  bag or box leaves for somewhere else.  It is a work in process.

What are you working on today? Strive towards a positive outcome.  Life is good!!!

Love a Donkey

 

“Hey, come on closer, I can’t hear what you are saying”… dutifully I found my way into the ditch and up to the fence.  I knew darn well they heard what I was saying, but clever darlings, wanted me closer so I could feed them the taller greens on my side of the fence.

I learned some time ago how devious they can be.  As full of mischief, they are also softies if you are deemed a friend. Get on their bad side tho’ and I would stay way clear. If they are working, and taking care of their flock… be warned, security checks can be quick and purposeful.

My visit was obviously on their lunch break. =^_^=    I’ve been known to chatter away, wax poetically and find myself rewarded with big sloppy kisses.  Of course a carrot or two in my pocket helped.

Lately I have found myself on back roads, where I have had the pleasure of a few encounters.  Have you visited with a donkey lately?  Aren’t they a wonderful audience. You know they are listening even when they turn their backs.. scratch an ear, if you are lucky, you’ll hear the donkey sigh, =^_*=  (wink)

Enjoy every day, today, will lead you to tomorrow.

Blessings be… Oyashikiri

communication …… remember, it is not always what we say, but HOW we say it. after we speak, it is important to LISTEN

 

Zen Friday

be thankful

This little flag was brought back a year ago, it was to fly happily at the church reminding one and all, that we should be thankful at all times.  Somehow, it just never got put up, and it was  only discovered recently again, when I picked up several boxes of goodies I had to be recycled to the House of Lazarus, Community Outreach Mission, in Mountain, Ontario. *

Seeing it again, was uplifting and reminded me that I do have so much to be thankful for.  I kept it, and it hangs where I can see it everyday.  Actually it sits where both my husband and I can see it and rejoice at the blessing we have been given.  An illness is an opportunity to revisit  the purpose of life, and why we are here.

A reminder not to squander your days and nights doing things you don’t enjoy, or with people who are possibly toxic in your world.  Rather than peace, love and caring, they can only offer, negatives.  They project hate, greed and selfishness.

This is the Canadian Thanksgiving week-end.  Families will gather, with friends and family to share the bounty in their lives.

Be sincere, be honest love with an open heart.

PL Precept #1 Life is Art

Sydney Australia

A beautiful capture by Hillwalker (Darren Su)(Sydney Australia)

Life is about sharing, not able to see the vistas that Darren does in his travels, I enjoy his view of the world he visits and lives in. No two people will view the same sunset or sunrise the same way. It is always fascinating to see the world through the eyes of another.

Be open to new discoveries, as bloggers we are blessed with this opportunity many days in one given day.  I have discovered worlds and pieces of it, in so many ways, by sharing with fellow bloggers and readers.  You all participate in my world.  Thank you!!!

Give thanks and appreciation to all those that come your way today.

birthdays =^_^=

hwy 43 9.16.17b

LOL.. no getting away from you is there. You are all so super fantastic.. No way you gonna let me forget it is my birthday. I wasn’t running away from it, really I wasn’t. I woke up and found that I’d lots of visits overnight. It was actually really pleasant to wake up and see that so many of you had dropped in.

hwy 43 9.16.17e

So many of you have traveled through the years with me, always there with your smiles and friendships.  How many times have I hollered out.. HELP  I’m stuck… it could be late in the night for you, and mid afternoon for me.. Always, if you are around, help is to be had.   I am so truly blessed.

hwy 43 Alexandria 9.16.17b

The colours of fall have started to appear as you see in one of the pictures.  Friends, are blessings I believe that. Even tho’ with the technology today (internet) we are able to reach out almost anytime… We don’t always get the chance, or think to do it, our day to day passes by on us too quickly.

Like the seasons, I am changing, my life takes new directions, doors open that I wasn’t expecting, opportunities that I hadn’t expected, drop in, and like nature, I accept and find creative ways to deal with the landscapes before me.

Hwy 43 Alexandria 9.16.17d

Always precious friends, I know that along the shorelines of my life, a friend is there.  Thank you .. thank you, thank you…. each one of you helps me, live a life that is more complete, because you share this world with me.

Another year to mark off on the calendar…  sigh… means I’m wiser, yes!

Friday smile

lemur from 1994 magazine

Whenever you need a smile, you can always count on someone to pop up and say – Hey!

Hi!  I’m thinking of you…  Makes me smile every time.

Everyone gets busy in their own day-to-day living.  When someone takes the time to drop in and say hello…  appreciate the moment…  this is one way the electronic world has changed over the years..  Where before we waited by the mailbox for word from a friend, now… with the internet, a few clicks and the smile is on its way.

This little guy I’ve been dragging around with me for years, I mean YEARS.  He was on some magazine cover that someone had thrown out.   I rescued him, every so often he pops up,  I find him amongst papers, or stacks of magazines.. we share the familiar (by now) hello… and…. puff…. he’s gone till next time.

We need to tidy up and clean house  in the fall, I prepare for nesting come the days when it is so cold outside.. we know we will be enjoying it from inside.  For all the crafters and collectors out there, check your stash.  Time to stock up.

Blessings to you all.  Share a smile today.  Love with all your heart, what goes out, comes back… Always.
