ho ho hope!

Good morning everyone… the season is on us. Songs on the radio, a special channel devoted to the music of the season. On the telly we have the Hallmark channel already showing their “feel good” movies. What about us, you and me, the marketing departments, the promotions, adverts, they are all prepared. In the States I guess it will happen real quick like once their Thanksgiving is over. No I don’t usually speak this way, (real quick like) but I liked the sound. The keys flowed with a rhythm.

It is early, but the snow machines are out, I can hear them rolling down the sidewalk. In some way, form or another, we have started to think of how we will portion ourselves up to be with friends, family and loved ones. On a personal level, we are not companies that can delegate and assign different tasks to various departments to reach a goal, we have to do it for ourselves.

In a conversation recently it was suggest that I be the adult and this meant in the situation we were discussing, that I should be more responsible myself. and take action accordingly. Had me wondering just what it means to be an adult. We (as parents) were the ones rushing around getting gifts, hiding them all to make “others” (we hoped) happy an surprised on Xmas day. But……………………. what about us, the individual, what is it about being an adult that sets us apart, from the ones who have dreams and wishes. Why are we responsible for making others happy.

In PL we believe that each and everyone of us, is responsible for US. If I cannot make myself happy, how can I expect someone else to make me happy. Be true to one’s SELF. We live a moment and we move on. Also we want others to be happy and we do our best to open our hearts to them. That is why we pray for the guidance to enable us to be a “good person” and to do our best for others and society. Adult or otherwise*, these are the teachings of PL.

giving Thanks

This past week I have had wonderful Thanksgiving dinners with friends, too many, in fact… now that the actual week-end is here, I am “stuffed”, Not with the blessing of friendships, but with poultry, dressing and cranberry sauces. One can never have enough friends. I love my friends.

As I drifted off into a peaceful sleep. I counted my blessings, family, friends I absolutely delight in, the country I live in, its beauty, it changing seasons, and of course, life itself.

People, human beings, from wherever in the world all share the same skies, the same day to day challenges, what makes it different, is that each culture has its own way, and celebrate life with different holidays, and have different heroes and folklore. My father taught me that to be accepted, I had to first accept myself, AND, the ways of others. It wasn’t always about ME, but how I accepted life, lived it, and made my way, was indeed mine, and I needed to own my actions. RESPECT played a big part, if I didn’t understand, it was alright to ask, always with respect and an open heart.

Granted often food was involved, we considered it an honour to eat with friends, guests welcomed to our table, were always shown the utmost respect, and when out, there was always the reminder to be considerate of others.

Now we sit in restaurants, each at our table, or booth, the place can be packed with other diners, but not a glance is given, or a smile offered.

How is it in your “world” are you someone who is open to smiling and greeting a total stranger, if only briefly, with a sign of recognition that they are another “person” just like you….

lost day

Where did the 18th go? I looked down to record my sugar levels and found that I had already entered the 19th. Checking my screen, no, today was the 19th. not was, IS… stumble stumble grumble.

However I know better than to let this little blimp start my day off in a direction I do not want to take, so I took my pen and made a messy line and began again. This is something in my younger years I would not have done, I would have torn out the page and rewritten it all so that it was tidy and neat. Isn’t being another year wiser great! What is a messy page when I am the only one to see it, and I am busy lady preparing for a fun filled day.

This is THURSDAY DOORS and I have the door I want to share with you. It was given to me by a friend who just returned from a trip, she saw it, and said “dymoon”… =^_^= I wonder do friends relate doors to me because I sometimes show my hard head….oh what the heck, rofl is that how it is said these days.. Rolling on floor laughing. You know when you pass the mid century mark, you can be a little slower at catching on.

Here is my attempt at showing you this door, it is pewter, and it opens, I am wondering if it will go with the pewter door I showed you earlier that was a brooch.

To the doll club members, this witch is not finished yet.. and no, the little door will not be part of her outfit. Just saying.

PL calendar day 19 If you are going to do it, put your whole heart into it. Your degree of seriousness will affect the outcome. Your daily accumulation of effort towards your goals shows just how serious you are.

Happy day everyone.

PL calendar day 10

When you are not having fun, could it be because you re being lazy?  Sometimes you feel blue or can’t seem to find  the joy in doing anything.  At times like this, just get up and move your body or work your mind to the fullest extent.

If sadness and lack of hope knock I your heart – try to do something positive for someone else.

PL calendar day 2

Live each day filled with hope

Even in those situations when you feel trapped with no way out, face every challenge with purpose and enthusiasm and you will find a way.


Nick, Mel and Craig rang the partially hidden little bell

Nick and Mel, sat down to wait a spell

While Craig wandered off to find the well

“oh look”, said Mel

both doors are open, front and back

“for sure” said Nick, “let us explore

Craig will find us when he gets back”

Inside they went to look around

Meanwhile Craig having found a  fast running stream

decided to explore a little more .. will the 3 friends,

end up back where they began? Although they started in one location,  each had his/her own story to tell when ….

April 24.

April 24, a date to remember, it was my husband’s birthday.Brian collage A day that celebrated his life. Now it is a reminder that I am a “widow”  In May it will be a year since he passed away.  His last birthday was one he so bravely wanted to celebrate.  His courage and determination saw him make that date and live to say he had achieved his goal.  He had his 70th. at home we toasted his achievements and his life, knowing there would be no more.

Over his years of  being successful at his chosen vocation – broadcasting, and the written media, he thrived at being a reporter of his many journeys and many observations as he travelled the world in search of stories, and new experiences. He never tired of sharing with others his enjoyment of the many interests he had acquired through his travels and his career.  History, geography, world affairs he could converse and debate at large.

PL calendar day 24

Things that happen to us all have a meaning.

Everything that happens to us happens for a reason.  Each and every occurrence is a chance for you to improve yourself.

We married late in life, he was determined that his wife would be  alright when and if he was not around.  That meant, he wanted me to have and maintain an independence that would serve me in good stead should he not be around.  He was so kind, considerate and caring, that I can say in all sincerity, he completed my life in a way that was so loving and dedicated to our togetherness that even though physically he is not here, he will always be MY husband, MY one and only … You were and are a blessing Brian, you are celebrated every day. R.I.P.
