on a hill far away

Driving along one day, I spied a happy face. It meant a bit of a climb, but I wanted a close up. Happy under the sun, we shared several of moments in contemplation, the stones, the surroundings and I. Happiness is being alive, to take in and bask in the wonder of the world around us. Where ever you may be. Day or night, you are never alone.

Make every moment count!

lessons – PEACE

Growing up, I remember my Mother collecting the tools she would need when she retired.  She was determined she would weave.  She also sewed, growing up in the early years before Father passed away, Mother made our clothes, pretty dresses, frocks with smocking, we were little charmers.

Upstairs she stowed her treasures, materials for sewing, wool for knitting, and the materials she would weave with.  We had boxes and boxes stored for that time when she would retire and spend her time lazily doing the things she loved.  Did I tell you she painted too.   Was a creative lady my Mother was.

When she finally did retire from her years in a Government office, away from her officer, desk and responsibilities there, guess what, she dove into her volunteering with a non profit group managing their business affairs.  She was part of a group of ladies who felt more needed to be done for seniors on low income,  They did what needed doing to have an apartment built to meet their goals.

Mother managed the building, did all that needed doing to keep it afloat. Went to meetings, volunteered with other groups, for other needs she felt were not being fully addressed.  Drove seniors for appointments, opened a tuck shop in the building she and the others in her group had now enlarged on ….She was part of Meals on Wheels.

All this to say, she never did her weaving, her sewing interested faded away, She did knit and crochet at night while she rested in front of the telly, but that was for babies in the home for unwed Mothers, blankets for the hospitals, you name it.. Mother had her hand in it.  If it was to help others, she was there with a helping hand.

She outlived most of her friends, (close ones) and others who she had know  over the years, were now, like her, too frail, age had slowed them all down.

We all do our best to live each day as best we can. If my Mother had any regrets, she never spoke of them.  My Mother and her friends were of a generation that grow up with World wars 1 and 2, they knew about scrimping, saving, and making do.  They also knew how fragile a life can be.

PL calendar day 31    Someone who is mentally prepared is strong.

Even when things look grim, if you take on the situation with determination, you will be able to make a fresh start with a positive outlook.

World peace is essential if we are to give hope to the next generation.  Love, caring, and understanding, begin within ourSelves.

visiting

Piglet and I were out wandering, I felt I needed to check in on my friend from a few weeks ago.

This time he had a few friends with him.  He looked no better tended to, even though the zoo was open for business, and there were cars in the parking lot.  But never mind his appearance, he made me smile, and coming over, he began to mooo? bray? Funny how animal can be so friendly in their own way.  There was what looked like a reindeer type of maybe moose in with them.  He looked like he had faded out, dried and withered Xmas garland hanging from his beautiful antlers.  However he wasn’t ready to come say hello … we had to admire from afar.

Thankfully they can’t read the sign on that storage container that is on ground in their enclosure.

PL calendar day 29   You gain strength through your hardships

Whatever you learn easily or master effortlessly tends to be forgotten.  The lessons you gain through repeated mistakes are what gives you genuine strength.

It was hot, the heat was a steady blanket of relentless “ugh” for me.  Not for everyone, but me, myself and I, tend to wilt in the hot sun of summer.  I feel an affection/love for these creatures, even the short visit with them will be a happy memory.

Wishing you all a great start to a brand new week.

The forbidden finger making its way to share a personal moment.  Yesterday I gave him some fresh taller green leaves from my side of the fence… but did not touch, only with my voice, did I whisper my love.  Every living being needs to know love!

what happens when

pl parking lot

you are being careless or overconfident ..

Even though you may have put your best effort into doing something you still may have made mistakes.  that is why it is important to always work with a prayerful mind.

Good morning dear friends,

Our surroundings play such an important part in our lives, yet, too often we put off what needs attention, or doing, till ????

I admit to having done just that thee past months, and now.. guess what.. aaaghghgh I have to clean up.  It would have been so much simpler had I done it as the days went along, but no…. aghhhhhh hands to the heavens…. “will I ever get this right”

Have a grand day my lovelies, rain or shine, we are ONE.  You and me… travelers on this road of life.  You make it much more interesting. You do!

Life is to be lived, life is to be shared.  Never fear saying, you care. Your smile is worth barrels of sunshine that will last for miles.

Quiet Sunday

Good morning, bom Domingo   I’ve pulled up this picture again, because when I look at it, I feel a calm. It reminds me of something that I just can’t put  my finger on. *magic*  I imagine small dainty  like figures in white flowing chiffon gowns, garlands in their hair, twinkling laughter floating through the air, while they whirl and twirl to some imaginary music, that is unheard with my earth-bound hearing.  Is it an enchanted circle, could be,.

I will be doing special prayers today, for members, their families and you my friends, near and far.  When sharing with you, the enchanted circle is within reach,  we will bid farewell to the summer that was, and fly happily into the next chapter of our lives.

Love, appreciation & gratitude that is shared, is a true blessing indeed.

Go in peace today, feel the spirits of the Universe carry you forward in a halo of light.

How are you

 

IMG_0885While 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 15

PL Precept #15  All is a mirror

When we experience a negative encounter, it can set us back, set us to thinking, how on earth???  why????? and whatever other question comes up in our minds, try to understand how we walked back into the negative trap.

First accept responsibility, had you not said or done something, the incident might have been avoided.

No, you doing avoid, the issue, you avoid the negativity of it.  Everyone is different and unique, not everyone sees the world through your eyes.

The choice becomes yours, it is your responsibility to remove the negativity from your immediate “moment”.

Some lessons are harder to  learn than others.  We have to recognize what will put the trigger in striking distance, and shift, or walk away.  Life is too short.

Sometimes we like what we see in a mirror and other times, it is best not to look if we are not ready for what we will see.
