That day we walked back to the car, after being told that we had an aggressive cancer in our lives. I remember looking into the darkness of the floor of the wooded area, near where our truck was parked.
For some reason, this patch of land was a place that I revisited often over the months that followed. No, not physically, but in my mind’s eye. I didn’t see flowers if they were blooming, it was the greenery, the trees, the open spaces between them.
The shadows that danced across the snow-covered floor between the trees, always I saw how nature blended and intermingled. I didn’t know it at the time, but I feel it now. As time passes, I miss my husband’s physical presence more and more, I feel him and hear his words in the strangest of places, or in the landscapes I see that I pass along the way to “wherever”.
The memory of our “togetherness” is intertwined with the nature that I see all around me. Like the seasons, and the changing skies. We are no longer as we were, but always, we will BE… Unconditional love, is happiness, tears, joy and sorrow. What a blessing to have been granted the experience of a love that while of this earth, blossomed into forever.

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.
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….

There will be no more tomorrows
My husband is free
His memory will always be
To all our friends, and to you, each and every one of you who have cared, and shared this path with us/me…. a thousand blessings flow gently in the breeze sending our love and appreciation your way.
looking out across the water on a dull day, and seeing a crystalized tree, thanks to the cold mist.
there is beauty in every day, every moment, and every second, we need only look with our hearts.
I dream, I walk, I talk
snap, crackle, pop
the mind is active taking off in all directions
time, to astral travel and make corrections
pop, crackle snap,
oh dear, earth to outer space
time to chat
I need a face to face
PL Precept # 2 To live is o Express One’s Self
YOUR WORLD WILL CHANGE WHEN YOU LOOK
AT THINGS IN A POSITIVE LIGHT
Everything you encounter is an opportunity for you to express yourself. What you choose to make of the situation is entirely up to you.

HI. =^_^= Wanted to show you a page from one of my art journals. This picture so delighted me at the time, I couldn’t pass along the magazine or get rid of it. Finally I started an Art Journal, or a Junk Journal… in it, I put in the various ” art pieces” that have caught my attention. This is one I wanted to use today, but… didn’t fit. So adding it in a post script.
Life offers us so much that challengers our creativity, it is staggering. I love it.
I accept that life isn’t always “fun” but it is powerful, it is an emotion that transcends words, happiness is LOVE and LOVE is GOD.
Day 30 PL Calendar
USE YOUR RESULTS TO MAKE THE NEXT TIME EVEN BETTER
Whether things turn out perfectly or not, the important thing is to take what you’ve learned and apply it the next time.
Standing under the branches of the towering trees
looking out, to my left and then my right
shades of green everywhere, bright sunlight dancing through
outstretched limbs that reach for the sky, in prayer
how can I cry, it is
so peaceful, so serene
alone with my thoughts, surrounded by nature’s embrace
life is full, it is plentiful, it is full of grace
a child of the Universe, I am, ONE with GOD
