Thank you to my wonderful caring friends who have been helping me while I heal. Friendships are treasures that one can’t find with a credit card, they are priceless.

Today in PL is Appreciation Day (formerly Thanksgiving) it is celebrated on the 21st of each month. We gather for a special ceremony at the church, services are held at 7 pm.

I have much to be thankful for, I have been unable to do to much for myself these past days, i.e a simple glass of water if it was out of my reach, was a total effort to attain if I had to get up out of bed and be mobile. Time heals, and with the help of my friends, I have managed, I am so blessed. I can now move around with the crutches in a much easier fashion, at times, I manage with one if the distance is short and there is furniture I can hold on to. A stool was placed in the kitchen so once I get there I can sit, reach the fridge, micro, toaster etc. and at least manage to get something to eat on my own.

It is easy to take for granted the mobility we have, I will certainly be more aware and remember to give thanks for all of my abilities and not take them for granted from now on. Appreciation is sometimes something we give lip service to, IT IS IMPORTANT.. our abilities, talents and skills are earned and when one is taken away even for a short time, “life” changes. In PL we ask that prayers start our day and end the day.

Service tonight is at 7 pm. if you cannot attend in person, please pray from home, Give thanks for the blessings received the past month, and ask for guidance for the coming weeks.

Express your appreciation with enthusiasm. Appreciation is the driving force for progress and development.

elusive

In the cold gray of the morning light, I got myself ready to find the elusive wild turkeys… Nope, not a one did I see, but I did get some good shots in before the pending rain would start. I used the time to try different settings on this new camera of mine, and to get used to holding it, its big and I have small hands. I like “doing” .. used to enjoy getting up everyday to go to work too. Yup I’m “one of those” It is not “work” when you love what you do ..

What is “normal” is different for each individual. Everyone has a different way of thinking and doing. It’s important to understand others’ feelings.

In PL we learn that it is through living with appreciation for all the blessings we receive in life, positive & or challenging… we will continue to be blessed… the practice of prayer on a daily basis helps us maintain a balance in our lives.

fyi. for all of you who commented on the upside cars in last Thursday’s blog, it was an art installation that is held each year in Quebec City… the 3 cars were put there by artists who filled them with earth and made gardens for the viewers to enjoy. It was one of many displays along selected streets in part of the city.

May your day/week be filled with much happiness and positive productive moments.

Energy springs from your smile. A smile makes you and others cheerful and energetic.

the manse

This manse stands beside the big church in a small town on the way to Cornwall. I’ve seen the church for years, but I’d never gone down the street beside the church. the other day I did. It is amazing what we find when we venture down a side street, turn a corner or simply look in a different direction.

I thought today I would focus just on the one “set” of doors that lead into the manse on the way to Cornwall, it was such a lovely old home, well kept, and very inviting. The church it sits next too is full of character, it stands proud along the highway, and is always a “joy to behold” driving towards it and past it. The corner were the church stands, always feels special. You arrive there, and always there is a welcoming feeling.

A church is but a building, true, it is the community and the people that give it life, and character, but the above architecture and overall lay out of how it is situated and been maintained, was a pleasure to discover and now share with you.

Multitasking reduces your joy by half. When doing something give it your all. There is joy in everything.

Doors of Gananogue

Good morning, took many more, but.. this is a sampling, the charm is everywhere. In our walk, we thoroughly enjoyed the parks, what was especially nice was that there were seating areas everywhere along the way for the “explorer” to sit a spell and simply enjoy.

PL Precept #7

Everything exists in relativity.

May you always walk in sunshine. May you never want for more.

Irish blessing

Let us be grateful to people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom

Marcel Proust

My evening meditation that came in from Japan last night, was something I very much needed to read, and contemplate on. I will share it with you.

It is about Listening. To be honest with others is not to do as they say, but to try to understand their feelings with a blank mind. Don’t listen to the other person’s story on the surface, but listen to the other person’s heart.

PL quote translated from Japanese as sent to me.
