Appreciation -Gratitude

Luna -Porti 9.5.17

Meet Luna, my feel good therapist from the USA.  She is a Portuguese Water Dog with an extraordinary ability to make people smile.  She has an amazing number of followers who enjoy her daily antics, and her vibrant personality.  Of course her human “Mom” does the talking for her, but her eyes and body language I can assure you let us know who the “real” boss is.  She is so “darling” that she has an almost full time job modeling canine attire for different companies.

Her full-time job of course is her daily attitude of “Life is good!  Let me show you just how good it is”  She will patiently sit, and looking directly at the camera will dare you to not smile for her.  I would show you her full face, but don’t know if you can stand her cuteness.  She is a personality on Instagram tho’…. if you are on Instagram, check her out. lunatheportie     🐱

I appreciate her nature, her being there in living colour, because she always makes me smile.  Thank you to “human” mom too….

The other day while driving home, I noticed that a postal van had slowed down going in the opposite direction.  I looked over since I was stopped for a red light, and found a face looking back at me.. when our eyes connected, he smiled, no more, no less… I smiled back, and just like that.. it was a brighter day.

Everyday, I look for happiness,  I like to share happy moments with friends, and people I meet, or come across in my daily travels.  In PL we have 21 Principles we use as guidelines to help us live a better and happier life.

PL Principle #3   I will live with a mind of appreciation towards others and things, is a favourite of mine.

PL Principle #12 I will get up pleasantly in the morning  This one I find very important, if I start my day with a happy heart, I am more likely to have a much more effective and productive day.  Why… because I choose to be happy and enjoy whatever the day brings my way.

PL Precept #1   Life is Art   – you hear me say this over and over… every day is a brand new canvas..  own it…

PL Precept #1 Life is  Art

things

What is it that attracts us to something, in this case, was it the bird emerging from the tall grass, perhaps it was the grass itself, wait, could it be the unknown at the bottom of the picture, lying in wait to be discovered.  who knows what it is that draws us to an area, an object, or a landscape.  I have a house full of “things” that have found their way home with me.  Some I just had to have, and they fit perfectly where I thought I wanted them…………………….. and then……………………they were forgotten.

Meet Chester, he is not a thing, he is a dog I met in the park.  Rather taken with him, he was so like my Canaille (Porti).. I sat down and had a good chin wag with him.  I enjoyed my conversation with him immensely, he nodded at the right times, acknowledged my banter… it was a fun meeting… and then we each went about our business.  I did take his picture though, so i could remember my visit with him.

garden geisha

This geisha is in our garden, bet you can’t find her, unless you just really wander all the grounds and look under bushes and overgrown vines.  You can see when she got home with me, she was given a place from where she could view and be viewed.  Time moves along, our moments change, our lives keep moving forward and the “things” we so “wanted”, “enjoyed” their moments passed too.  If they were left outside, nature welcomed them into its fold. If inside, they were likely soon coated in a mantle of dust and neglect.  Or see, when daily chores were being done, but no longer recognized as a “treasure”

PL Precept # 16  All things progress and develop

PL Precept #18   Each Moment is a turning point

I now try harder every day, to simplify my life.  I’m rediscovering treasures, and letting them go. I enjoyed and lived my “happy”, when we live in the moment, that is what life is like…. we live each moment, treasuring what we find, there is a saying, for each moment you spend being sad, you are missing a moment of “happy” that might not be it, word for word, but you get the idea,

Have a sun filled day!

Sometimes we want to rest

we do our best to make the time

only you find yourself

being watched with expectation

IMG_1689

just to make sure you understand

that your taking a break, is NOT

what you should be doing

I did my best to ignore the pair

however their persistence

was not to be ignored

dog noses are very cold

being stared at is not really

a soothing lullaby

beaver maple leaf_edited-2

all is not lost

I did find two cars for my

“play car” collection =^_^=

I started a card

the beaver has a chewed ear,

I did find two maple leaves

then suffered a kind of writer’s block

so except for hello

that’s it for the day

my Mother is 95, legally blind  and hard of hearing

yet here she is doing what she does best,

living each day, getting the best out of whatever opportunity

comes her way

In this case she is looking at a smart phone to catch up

on recent pictures.

my sister who is trying to catch a glimpse is now in Iceland

where she will be surrounded by

happy people, celebrating the win today against England (soccer)

IMG_1519

 here .. my addiction…

cold, very cold, ice coffee with a side glass

of ice water..

the perfect mix.

all this to say

life is good everyday

someone sent me a smile today

let me share it with you

saying

take your pick

the caption on this one was… take your pick…
