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….

Bonnie Perth 7.04.18

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.  =^_^= *****

A friend took this picture in Norway recently, I asked for permission to use it.  When I saw it, I felt that it mirrored my very BEing.

The reflection of the clouds in the water, the distant shore, the elevation, shadows, and quiet that  presented itself to me, was so hauntingly beautiful.

I felt blanketed by a calm that caressed and descended into every pore of my existence.  This moment of perfection, the harmonizing of captured beauty, visual expression with receptive emotion, translated to a joyous moment with the Universe.

The recognition of a spiritual force, a moment when eternity unfolds, then simply etches the “forever” in your open “heart” then, in the twinkling of an eye, the moment is gone… but always the memory will linger on.

How are you doing, friends, ask… I’m doing fine thank you…  My life is enriched by all the blessings I am so fortunate to have found in YOU.  My thank YOU to each and every one of you, who have let me know you care,  with your caring, my loss is easier to bare, I appreciate each and everyone of you….

marriage

 

Shinzen Japanese Garden, Yosemite_002

Marriage between two individuals, is a sacred bond.  It is a commitment of Oneness in a world of constant change. Like friendships that last, it is a growing of hearts, a learning in understanding, and a blessing of life, lived to its fullest potential.

Partners learn and grow together.  Without knowing it they help shape and form their loved one’s knowledge and wisdom of what “togetherness” is.  No two people are alike, and no two couples are the same.  What is constant in love that stays true, is unconditional faith, trust, caring, and acceptance.  Respect being a key ingredient.

Love is a four letter world, with endless definitions.

I have been overwhelmed with the thoughtful, caring, sharing you have all showered me with.  I know I am not alone, and never will be, you all fill my world with such support, kindness and affection.

For those who have asked, service will be on PL Ancestor’s day (the 11th) we will do the service at the church (10a.m.) for Ancestor’s day,  then Rev. Eugene will do a special prayer for Brian.  Brian took such solace in prayer,  when he was still able to read, he read the Precepts and Principles regularly.  Prayer brought comfort and consolation.

camp fire

Unconditional Love lives on forever

the earthly flame may flicker and die

but we, like the majesty,

of the Universe

will live on, in the mountains, lakes and streams

for all Eternity

PL Calendar day 17

Be Calm, Be Kind without compromising

Hesitating to share our true feelings hurts not only ourselves but others.  While respecting the other person’s feelings say what you need to say.

Life is what we make of it.  Life is full of challenges and opportunities.  Seize the day, make every second count.

Thank you to each and every one of you who has taken the time to write and ask me how my husband is doing.  There is nothing more that can be done to “stall” or “stop” the cancer.. it is doing what it has set its mind to do.

My husband we hope will come home this week for palliative care with a team of health care workers who come to the home, including a palliative care physician. Should it get to be too much to handle in the home environment, we will move on to the next step .

Blessings to each and every one of you.  Your caring, your support, is so appreciated. We hold you near and dear, each ray of energy you send our way is caught up and embraced with love.  We return the love to you a hundred fold. OYASHIKIRI

Unwanted noise

beautiful trees ripped out

hedges disappear

gone

trees that stood for years

home to  the “wild” life

city dwellers gone

no more sunlight

Last year when my Mother was bidding farewell to her years on earth, my sister who was staying with her. Passed the time, drawing and colouring, memories of another time.

Change happen, with “progress” comes destruction, to “make way” for “infill”  buildings that are meant to fill in where older homes , single family homes with laneways, garages that held the cars that used to fit inside them, and usually have pretty front lawns, and backyards, big enough for small patios and gardens, either filled with flowers in season, or vegetables.

Now these homes when their owners pass away, are taken over by builders who tear them down, and put in two homes on a lot that was meant for one.  Usually, architecture that is cold and sterile.  Forget a lawn or garden spaces. Cement, pavement and more cold man-made materials, usually in various shades of grays and blacks.  Garages if there, are usually part of the main floor, still usually too small for the bigger cars of today, so they end up always outside parked on the single space of the paved front of the dwelling.

Sad, but that is progress. If you are near, or can easily get to green space.  Treasure it. Take the time to enjoy it. Listen to the birds when they visit (if they do) enjoy the fresh earthly smells of spring,  and watch as the young flowers unfold to embrace another season of “life”

Life, can be fleeting.  Live in the moment.  Enjoy each and every second of your day.  don’t wait till it fades away.

PL Precept #11    Always be with God.

PL Precept # 16  All things progress and develop.

PL #18  Each Moment is a turning point.
