My mind still talks to you
my heart still looks for you
My soul knows you are at peace
I thank God for having had you
but I still miss you so much!
My niece knew yesterday that I was in having a difficult time… she sent me this quote she found on all-great quotes.com. I saw it only this morning. and yes, the above is all so true.

Day 8 of the PL calendar
First accept Everything
Life is filled with moments, sometimes happy and at times inconvenient. It is important to first accept every situation as it occurs and try to accept and understand it for what it is.
Bom dia!! Greetings on another bright sunny morning. Mid week already, where doe the time go.
It was fantastic day yesterday to travel the roads, the trees along the highway are starting to bud, I could feel the anticipation in every direction. The water levels were still very high as we approached the West Island (heading into Montreal). We observed that the water was still half way up the trees that would usually be above the water line on dry land.
Please take time to remember that tho’ the weather is currently dry, there are thousands who have suffered severe water damage over the last weeks, and need our prayers. Not just a few, but many people have lost year of memories and accumulated treasures, and are finding themselves in a place of sadness with weeks and months of rebuilding and hard work just to regain a sense of “normal”

Good Morning, Bom dia!
The day is young and really not decided on what it is going to do. The forecast says rain and lots of it. In our area, there has been a lot of flooding already, this newest bit of rain could be a real disaster for many at risk communities. My prayers go out to all of you at this time.
Across the river on the Quebec side, the military has been brought in to help with the filling of sandbags and volunteers from all around are coming around donating their time. It is in such times that we see how community pulls together despite any differences at other times. Oyashikiri.
What you see above is my trying out a new product, seeing what it can do with a variety of molds or embossing/texture plates. The product used (coloured) is by Finnabair, called Icing paste (Prima marketing), It is through trial and error that I will find how it will work with my particular style of “working”. The challenge and opportunity of discovery. I love it.
PL calendar day 26 Put your whole heart into whatever you do, no matter when or where you are.
Don’t try to cut corners or be careless about things. Be fully responsible, completing whatever you set out to do.
April 24, a date to remember, it was my husband’s birthday. 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.

PL calendar day 17
Have clear goals and take appropriate actions.
Always begin with a clear idea of what your goals are. Once you have pinpointed the target for your actions, things will move forward much more smoothly.
With the nicer weather, more and more people are spending time outdoors getting reacquainted with the local parks and trails. Doing inventory in the garden, what is preparing to reappear, what has been lost or not doing so well. Each day truly is a new beginning.

Appreciate the Makoto (sincerity) of the people who came before you. Everything we have today was built upon the hard work of our ancestors and the people who came before us. Always remember to be thankful and humble and continue to build on their past successes.
“Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending”. Mary Robinson.
Nothing can take the place of good friends, they make you smile, save your bxtt when you think there is no end in sight and give comfort just in being who they are. I feel humbled to have such amazing friends.
When we pray for our ancestors and the people in our lives who contribute in our daily living, genuinely infuse each moment, with gratitude, giving thanks with all the makoto you can muster.
