Sometimes I just have to share with you some of my finds.
Sometimes I find a photograph that leaves me without words to express what I am thinking, or the wonder that fills my mind, Is it real, how did it happen or come to be… It was posted on Pinterest by a Nathan Eames. (Poole,UK)
Every day I have such moments in my life. Moments where I am simply overcome with an emotion that carries me away. It could be something as simple as walking outside with one of the dogs and seeing a squirrel run across the hydro or telephone line as easily as I walk along a sidewalk. The other day I noticed a small purple violet peaking out from a small clump of freshly unfurled moss green leaves. There are crumbling pieces of broken concrete from a weather worn bird bath that somehow seem to give character to the sprawling juniper. If I look even harder I see the faces of long forgotten art dolls looking out at me wondering if I’ve forgotten them. I have. There is just so much to see, explore and experience right here at home, yet when I see the finds of others. like the picture above. I truly am amazed. Isn’t technology wonderful. How blessed we are to live in an age of “social media” where artists can share their works, visual and otherwise by simply posting it for others to see.
Value your time here, actually see the world around you, listen to the sounds of life that fill your day. Most of all, appreciate the true worth of those around you. Family, friends, tell someone you care, don’t assume they know. We all need to know we matter in someone else’s world.
No matter how big or small the part we play, we are all ONE under the moon/stars/sun. Blessings… Oyashikiri

Good Morning Everyone! Ahhhh what a day, what a day… kicked out of bed very early this morning by a whippet…a surprise wake up call! What can one do, standing over me with great concern on her face was the Porti (Portuguese Water Dog).. what else to do but smile.. No matter what rude awakening starts your day, S M I L E.
A nice big hug to go along with the smile is bonus! It isn’t always the easiest thing to do, but a smile that reaches the eyes can melt a heart, change a mood and just be gall darn enchanting. Not only does it make you feel better, it helps those around you have a better day themselves. Happiness is contagious. Now pucker up!
Hope I got a smile out of you today…… thank you for sharing this moment with me….. love, today and always…… Oyashikiri
After watching the news last night and seeing the snow storms that hit parts of the States and Canada leaving behind a mess to be cleaned up and dealt with for days to come, went searching for a picture that showed green vegetation and new growth. Wow my prayers and positive energy is being sent out to all of you who need that extra boost.
The PL lesson for today was > Begin each Day with a Renewed Sense of Appreciation < Are you living each day and getting into a rut? By making small changes in the things you do, your day to day life can become fresh and exciting. We are here today , by the grace of God. Let’s make each day meaningful, by starting out with a feeling of gratitude for a brand new day. In being genuinely happy about life, we will be blessed with a deeper sense of happiness.
Smile, you are loved each and every day, sometimes we may not feel very loved, but you are. Know and believe, you are loved.
I love this picture.. Warm HUGS everyone! Blessings – Oyashikiri.
Part of healing is being vulnerable. It is through life’s lessons that we learn, our imperfections are exposed. In sharing it is not so other’s can fix us or rescue us, but so we can love and accept ourselves. Sharing is a catalyst in healing and change. Our value and worth is not determined by how hard we struggle. Learn to let things happen easily and naturally. Allow the “Universe” to ease us into where we need to be. Be open to the circumstances in your life. The love and light of God/Tao surrounds us.
Put sincerity into everything you do.
My thank you to each and everyone of you for sharing this part of my life with me.
HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE- the Chinese new year begins.. It is the year of the Horse (4712). much happiness, prosperity and good health, today, now and always. Oyashikiri

On the right is Rev. Tokuo Itagaki, this man was tireless in his encouragement and hosting of all events! The “go to” man for everything. This picture came to me from a PL member from California (thanks Harry) in it you can see more of the entertainers who came by to share time with us.
(Kappa-Za children’s Theatre Group) The key figure that you saw yesterday and is also in this picture is Kimaru. When you chant his name, he comes out to play =^_^=
Well dear reader, here we are half way through the week, amazing eh. Has it been a good week so far?
Today’s teaching on the PL calendar is
“Letting Go of Your Ego Will Make You a Stronger Person”
If you are always caught up with power,status or appearances, you will have a hard time accomplishing anything of worth.
Let go and express yourself fully
Yesterday I am pleased to say that I managed very nicely to avoid any of the above “traps”, kept to myself, got what I wanted and needed to be done accomplished, all with a smile .. A smile works wonders. Granted I was one tired puppy by the time I got home, but I slept like a lamb.
Life isn’t always full of joy filled moments, but if we (me, myself and I) keep a smile and a happy disposition, the day usually works out to be ok, laughter does win the day.
Enjoy the day, if you live far away, enjoy what is left of the day and have a wonderful night of carefree dreams.
May healing energies bless those of you needing the healing “hug”, If you have extra energy to give, pray that those needing our love feel it in their lives today.
Blessings to each and everyone of you.
My morning mantra. Since yesterday, I have heard myself whisper, Let Go, Let God.
Skies are a bright blue, the sun is streaming down through the trees throwing a lovely dappled pattern of shade on the patio. May today be a day filled with richness and blessings to you all. Smile and the world smiles with you! Blessings
