We begin our journeys with such innocence
so many dreams, hopes, genuine happiness
we find ourselves discovering something new every day.
Why do some of us stop discovering, and allow routine to take over..
These dolls I found the other day
Have been around, the top one probably more so than the other one
Where have they been, what stories could they tell.
These little treasures will come with me to the next Doll meeting
hopefully I will learn more there.
For the moment they have a new place to stay and experiences to acquire.
Every day is a new opportunity to live another story line, every day is a new beginning.
Look down, look up, look around, pleasures abound, waiting to be found.
PL Calendar day 15
Being Attentive Makes Life More Enjoyable
Live life paying careful attention to every detail, be it big or small. By doing so, you will be able to experience the subtle joy in things.
Happy Ancestors’ Day everyone. A month ago today, we had the service for Brian, it will be another couple of days, before he will have been “gone” two months. Somehow, time has lost a place with me at the moment. I am in a “temporary/holding” zone. It is thanks to my wonderful friends, and thoughtful neighbours that I get through each day.
I never know if I will be overwhelmed with an emotion, or find myself wrapped in a cloak of silence.
My friends seem to know just when to call or be present, for this I am truly grateful. On the surface years of wearing a “public” persona, has stood me well. At times I feel like I am cast in stone, and watching the world go by, while other times…. the sunlight just quietly misses me, letting me hide in the shade.
I am thankful for who I am today, my world is evolving and changing, I am so appreciative of you my friends, who stand by me, help me in this time of such overwhelming emotions, uncertainty and uncharted tomorrows. Thank you.
PL day 11
Be thankful for who you are today.
You are standing here thanks to your ancestors, your parents and those who have supported you throughout your life. Show your appreciation, by giving back to the world around you.
This is a piece of pie (she said)
let me explain,
it is my second piece of pie (she said)
fresh baked, rhubarb & strawberry crumble
a dab of whipped cream
teamed with a fresh pot of tea
not a dream, no
I really intend to eat the whole thing
Yes, that is what she said….
I did it! I did it!
So pleased was she, not a crumb was to be seen
that was one dessert
that made an impact
for now it is a fact
she willingly ate
a second piece of pie
that is no lie
you know who you are!!!!!
you ate 2 pieces of pie.
PL Calendar day 6
Your joy will increase, Once you make up your mind
If you’re going to do it. Do it with determination. your resolve will create good rhythm.
*** my friend made up her mind, she would have a second piece of pie. She did it. We had a jolly time, the calorie count was of no mind. They will be counted another time. =^_^= *****
Perth Tea Room on the main street.
I say hooks because that is how they were advertised. The display was way up high, the store might have had problems with them disappearing, they are so cute. (Ikea)
Miniature buffs, they are metal.
Have a great day everyone! Be enthusiastic, step outside the box, turn left instead of right, you might just discover something new and interesting.
Wisdom is a divine endowment – not a human acquisition
Happiness is not the absence of conflict, but the ability to deal with it
Found this quote in one of my profiles. I for some reason, did not note where I got it from, but the words aren’t mine, however, at the time, I must have connected with the sentiment.
There are days when I feel like “ I am” on a stage … that I am rehearsing or going through a chapter that is “in progress”. For sure, what I am living is my personal experience. Today while in meditation, I revisited, or tried to, my interpretation of an event that is yet to happen. Then the spotlight shone down on me, and I knew I had to be in the present. To succeed I have to be present.
Every frame of the “scenes” being lived, needed my focus on the present if I was to even “live” to experience the pending “event”
Ah life, it is a beautiful exhilarating happening, isn’t it.
Enjoy the first day of a new month.
Happy Canada day everyone!
PL Precept # 11 Allways be with GOD
That day we walked back to the car, after being told that we had an aggressive cancer in our lives. I remember looking into the darkness of the floor of the wooded area, near where our truck was parked.
For some reason, this patch of land was a place that I revisited often over the months that followed. No, not physically, but in my mind’s eye. I didn’t see flowers if they were blooming, it was the greenery, the trees, the open spaces between them.
The shadows that danced across the snow-covered floor between the trees, always I saw how nature blended and intermingled. I didn’t know it at the time, but I feel it now. As time passes, I miss my husband’s physical presence more and more, I feel him and hear his words in the strangest of places, or in the landscapes I see that I pass along the way to “wherever”.
The memory of our “togetherness” is intertwined with the nature that I see all around me. Like the seasons, and the changing skies. We are no longer as we were, but always, we will BE… Unconditional love, is happiness, tears, joy and sorrow. What a blessing to have been granted the experience of a love that while of this earth, blossomed into forever.
Day 21 PL Calendar
A Thankful Person will Grow as an Individual
When you are able to have a thankful attitude, you will be blessed with good intuition and more enthusiasm, which will continue to move things in a positive direction.
Not really but the colours appealed to me. I did however resist bringing it home. I have been busy for weeks now cleaning up, doing a major spring cleaning. So much to be done, true I didn’t need to do it right away, but, type AAA that I am, once I know something has to be done. I make it happen. In a way, I got on my own carpet and worked “magic”.. I revved up the old broom and pulled into drive.
Day 9 PL Calendar – Your surroundings are a reflection of YOU.
I believe that to be true. For over a year now, I have been unable to focus on my surroundings, it was no longer a “comfortable” ambiance.
Day 10 PL Calendar – Everyone has their own unique Personality
I have been told “not to do anything major for the next while because, whether I realize it or not, I am going through a “phase of adjustment” So…………..little by little I have been cleaning out… removing “illness” “pain” and “discomfort” Sweeping, cleaning, washing, and making changes, that enhance the “home” ensuring that the “balance” and harmonizing of “energies” comes alive again, and grows with each passing day. A home is where the “heart” is. Always, forever and always.
The next few days will be busy, on Monday the 11th. at 10.am. we will have the Ancestors’ Day ceremony and special prayer and memorial for Brian. Where-ever you are, at 10 a.m. Eastern Standard Time if you are able to, join us in prayer. What a positive VIBE it will be. =^_^=
Blessings dear friends… may the Universe shine down loving rays to warm your days and sprinkle night dreams with enriched star dust.
