Happy Mar..17th

Velcro Guinness 2.14.19

day 17  of  Perfect Liberty calendar

Have clear goals and take appropriate Actions       – Always begin with a clear idea o what your goals are.  Once you have pinpointed the target for your actions, things will move forward much more smoothly.

If you celebrate the wearing of the green, from our home to yours, we wish you a day of rainbows and golden moments to cherish always.

If you are like Velcro, he was patient for the picture, but much happier when his “duty” was over.  Our “babies” are constantly reminding us, that altho’ they don’t always understand our actions… they graciously put up with us.  Trusting that we will get over the moment soon enough.  And we do!    Cheers!

keeper feb.14 Guinness

Keeper did her part too.  They shared the burden of humouring the human.  Yes they were well rewarded. =^_^=

a special tool box

57c7cee1a7d92af8579ff422bed20e57In cleaning up, going through boxes, I came across a file folder from days gone by.  In the file folder I had copies of a paper I had typed and copied to enclose with special little boxes I made to send to friends.

Special Tool Box, for someone important

Rubber band to remind you how wonderful a hug is, to give or receive

Tissue – to remind you to dry someone’s tears, perhaps your own, so you can see the tears of others.

Button – to remind you to “button your lips” to keep from saying mean things about others or talking when it is not appreciated.

Toothpicks – to remind you to “pick ” out the good qualities of everyone including you.

Band-aid –  to remind you of healing hurt feelings, either yours or someone else’s

Candy kiss – to remind you that everyone needs a nice treat occasionally

Gold thread – to remind you that friendship is the golden thread that ties together the hearts of everyone

Eraser – to remind you that everyone makes mistakes sometimes that is all right

Lifesaver candy –  to remind you to think of ne as your lifesaver, whenever you need to talk, feel free to come to me

Mint – to remind you that you are worth a MINT to me!


I can not take credit for this idea, I just remember it making the rounds at the hospital I worked at many years ago.  I sat on many committees and being a teaching hospital, I also had to meet with peers in other hospitals on various matters.  This little “piece” was much talked about at the time.  Everyone thought it to be such a great idea.  Finding it again, has brought back memories of another time and place.  I also think that it very much applies to NOW.  What do you think?

It’s interesting because it’s different

Even if someone totally disagrees with you or does things differently, you may learn something from them.  Avoid getting trapped in the mindset, “this is the way it has to be” and free your mind  consider other possibilities.

 

 

Bom dia to all,  Have a great day!

In Memory

Rocking the Blues -My friend Kira loved the Blues, she built a club so all her friends could share in her passion for the blues.  DJs from all platforms came to share their tunes, and keep us rocking to the many genres of Blues that are played through-out this Universe of ours.  Didn’t matter who you were/are, if you loved the blues, shared in the camaraderie of the Blues Tribe, you were welcome.

I have been away and didn’t know she had taken ill again.  A friend wrote me last night, we will have a memorial played out over the week-end so that all of us that loved her can manage to get in.  All the DJ’s will have a time slot so that you can share in what Kira loved best.. listen to the blues and share and be with friends.

This woman was a rock for me over the many years she has een in my life. Her generosity and loving spirit will always be with me.  Rest in Peace my friend, you were an example to all of us,  This is not farewell, it is … till soon

Today, day 2, PL calendar is    Live each Day filled with hope(this was Kira’s mantra and motto)

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

Hula Hamster JOY

hula hamster xyThis precious handmade hamster, makes my heart sing.  She puts a smile in my heart just by sitting there smiling back at me.

hula hamster xThe last few days have been difficult for me.  I have found myself drifting into a state of “low drive and little interest ”   When I could I retreated to my bed,  the quiet of a darkened room and the desire to sleep.  My sleep mates were only too happy to crawl under cover and enjoy time out from the weather that was raging outside.

Today I had to go out, there were errands that needed doing, so after a lazy start to the day, I took myself off to do what needed doing.  When I arrived at the church I was surprised with JOY, the adorable Hula Hamster.  Oh what a gift.  I melted and was totally taken in by her charm.

Loving caring friendships are priceless.  JOY lifted me out of the shadows , back into the sunshine.  Olinda weaved a magic spell,   I am blown away. Thank you.  I am reminded that in life,  in a split second, the sun can break through the clouds, and all is right again.

hula hamster joyI am so blessed.  The Universe always comes through for me, when I allow myself to stumble, my friends are there reminding me, that LOVE, is always with me.  God is Love, Love is GOD and we are all ONE

Thursday Doors – 9.20

 

Charm of days gone by.  There is so much to take in when you travel a back road. You have to know that you will not get anywhere fast, you simply accept the moments of discovery.  This was the scene that beckoned loud enough for me to stop and actually get out.  It is aged, tired and worn, but yet it is standing proud. Wind, snow, ice, rain, yes they have left their mark, but the place, for me , still had a quiet dignity.  It stood, just off a paved road, but the surrounding land, was rich and bore the remnants of a bountiful crop.

I left today, open to the possibilities, and the Universe  provided  “seek and you shall find”  PL Precept #1   Life is Art

The day was a happy one, and totally productive in a very creative way.  I hope you enjoyed the same.

had a good co-pilot that helped..

shared adventure, doubles the fun!

 

I saw today

visions that danced before my eyes

flowers PA7simple beauty that caused my mind to stray

Every day  we have the chance to see an array of colours, that really do take the breath away.  Yet, somehow we fail to let the quiet impressions of calm, take hold and keep us in a serene state for the rest of the day. Instead we are affected by the sometimes negative incidents that pop up to distract and cause us to stumble or hobble.

It is at such times that I am reminded  how priceless good friends are.  A kind word, a gentle nudge towards a happier experience. little steps can go a long way.  Rain may fall, but the sunshine will always return. Always.

and so, the hours passed the mind tired of wandering down rocky pathways, and returned to wander blissfully towards the captivating land of dreams.  The flowers still smiled and waved from their happy beds, only this time their cheerfulness stayed to lead the way.  Sleep will come and tomorrow will be another day.

PL Precept #16  Each moment is a turning point

 

adrift in time, even when present

sky in norway

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….

PL Precept # 11   Always be with God
