sabai sabai

thailand“Sabai sabai”

“A ubiquitous Thai phrase.  it is a greeting, ” like hey man, be cool,” or “take it easy” In Thailand where the people and their customs, are gentle, and a smile is always the way to greet someone, hands  in special position, like a prayer, with a slight low bow.  It seemed like a fitting way to start my greeting to you today.

We have the sunshine today, however, temperatures are in the zero range.  So imagining the sunshine  in Thailand where the weather is “warmer”.. feels good.

I am reading a nook by David Casarett,M.D.  = Murder at the house of Rooster Happiness = the main character is Ladarat Patalung, a nurse who is slowly adding detective to her “talents”   It is a debut book,  one gets to enjoy the sights and sounds of Thailand.  How it ended up in my reading, I don’t remember.  I actually didn’t think I would even be able to still my mind with all that is going on these days, but… wonder..of wonders, it is written in a way that I am drawn to know more about a country I know little about, and learning about customs, and traditions that are interesting.  What a way to travel and enjoy a mystery at the same time.

Seeing life from the perspective of a Thai person, regarding time spent in the USA ..let’s just say.. it made me smile, a lot!!!!

Isn’t that what life is all about, finding moments and ways to bring heart-felt smiles into our daily lives.  When we smile, we pass along our happiness.

The Elephant found in Thailand, is the one also found in India….   an elephant is an elephant to me,  this is a picture I have in my inventory of an elephant, forgive me if there is a distinct difference.

I am feeling an elephant size load of happy today, and want to share it with you.  Being happy is important.. even if it is a struggle to smile, curve those lips and take a nice deep breath.. say to yourself happy happy happy, sabai, sabai… and you will be blessed with a big inner smile.

Till next visit.   sabai, sabai…

February in South Africa and the Jackass Penguins are enjoying a day on the beach.  Isn’t that always the way, someone is enjoying sunshine while we are experiencing gray skies and rain.  No matter, what is important that in our day-to-day living, no matter the weather, or situation, we do our best.

Good Tuesday morning to one and all.  I have used this picture before, I don’t recall where I got it, but it is one I’ve obviously kept.  It still has an appeal.

I believe in balance.  There is no wrong without there being a right.  Everything seems so subjective, it is not always easy to find objectivity. We try.  At times it is like walking a tight rope with no safety net.  Even when we see and intellectually know the safety net is there, We doubt.

Today, no matter what, I want a happy day.  So… I found Pippa’s post on Instagram… come on… doesn’t she make you smile.  She gets my smile every time.

Happy Saturday

pig dish 9.29.17

This little piggy was at the market

but was not brought home

This little piggy stayed on the shelf

where passers by, looked and smiled

Rest assured, this little piggy

will not be travelling for miles

to visit you soon

But the smiles and happy chuckles  he

passed on to people who passed by

I hope will stay with you

way past noon

Happy Saturday all !

smiles a  mile long….  and pass them on

                                                                                  Q

for the love of shoes!

Shoes from China, to fit a Tonner 16″ doll.  Finally a shoe collection I don’t have to wear. simply enjoy.  It takes almost a month for them to get here from China, but well worth the wait.

Patience is one of the virtues, that I am continually working on. =^_^=

Happiness is!!!!

I know I am not alone in my “enjoyment” of shoes.  These are manageable, and I don’t have to wear them….
