Quiet, blue skies, puffy clouds, shadows, the dignity of dying, allowing for the next season to begin. Gratitude and Acceptance.
Some stay behind, some go on to reclaim their freedom, their work on earth is done.
Creativity is seeing things everyone else has seen, and thinking what no one else has ever thought
PL thought for today – 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.
Original expression done shortly after my Mother passed away. Could I do it again, no. Once we express something to the world it is done, there is no going back. We move forward. In anger once I spoke angry words about someone. My Mother quickly and quietly told me that I should think before I spoke. Words spoken, actions of unkindness, are negative not only to the person you are directing your anger to, but to your self. If you have nothing kind to say, say nothing. Deal with the moment, you can do it.. tomorrow will be another day.
While out driving the other day. I reflected on that question myself. We are asked, at least I am, on a fairly regular basis. I was out driving the back roads, and needed to find my way, or get my bearings. After a while, the farm land was starting to all look the same. In other words I was getting weary, and needed a change. Searching the skies I saw a steeple off in the distance, in the countryside here, both in Quebec and Ontario, you can always count on a church steeple to guide you towards “civilization”
It was a peaceful day for me, and certainly the quiet appeal of the church sitting, basking in the sun, added to my “mood”. The manicured lawn and large paved entrance was a huge contrast to the visions I had been enjoying on the back roads. Another visual of the differences in life.
I am fine, thank you to all who have asked. Life IS different, my personal space has been reconfigured. To that end, all my past experiences, adventures, and lessons have served me well. Possibly the enormity of the change has not quiet fully dawned on me, but it is present. I feel it, and I do intellectually “know” it. So yes I am fine, but am I REALLY fine,I think it is too soon to tell. No one can predict the future. And, every day is NEW.
No two friendships are alike, therefore, how I am although influenced at times by my immediate circle of friends, changes, why, because at the core of it all is ME. And the secret I am sharing, is that Me, myself and I is constantly being kept busy with the help of the Universe, with reminders that I am never alone. Service yesterday at the church, where the ceremony of appreciation to our Ancestors and those who have helped us become who we are, was performed. For me was very calming and spiritually refreshing.
For that is a focused prayer of appreciation and thanks to all my family. friends, past and present who make me the person I am today. I like me, and I really and truly do appreciate each and every one of you, for you touch me in ways that transcend mortal definitions. Love is PEACE.
PL Precept #19 Begin once you perceive
The other day, I drove by a work site, and saw the mounds of earth, with their new growth. It rocked with me I loved it. So much so, that I went back and drove into the construction site, to take pictures.
My very own treasure chest, the dry earth, the cracks, loved it all. I really do marvel at the way nature provides me with such wonders. actually it is for everyone, but some how I don’t think everyone gets as chuffed up as I do about such things.
To have had a macro lens I would have been up there trying to catch every nook and cranny that took my fancy.
We are all different, we all take in the world around us in our own way. That is what makes the environment and the populations in it, so intriguing and inspiring.

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.
Happiness is meant to be shared
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.
