Remember

We can choose at any moment, in any situation, to see life as a gift or something to be endured.

You might be wondering what this flower has to do with that. It’s simply a reminder that nature doesn’t see life as something to endure. It has no perception of such things.

In a recent lesson from A Course in Miracles, it says that there really are no problems…it’s only our perception of life that makes us see problems.

Let’s remember that we are all children of a loving Creator and, as such, we are all entitled to miracles.

Be good to yourself and each other. Namaste’

What Does That Mean Exactly?

At the end of my posts, I write a simple phrase – Be good to yourself and each other. Namaste’

It’s a simple reminder that we are all walking each other home. It’s about the journey and the souls we meet along the way. Nothing happens by chance. Everyone in our lives is there to be a lesson or a blessing. Some will be there briefly. Some will stay for a long time. Pay attention to the lesson or the blessing. We’re in this thing called Life together.

So what does Namaste’ mean exactly?  (Hint: it’s about love).

Circle of Friends

My circle of friends is small but tight. I value their love, their wit, their charm, their brutal honesty, their opinions, and so much more.

Acquaintances come and go and there’s value in that as well. But true friends are so rare. You know. The ones you see after time has passed and yet it feels like you haven’t missed a beat at all when you reunite.

My circle became smaller today and my heart is breaking. My only, and I mean only, consolation is that I know she is now a Guardian Angel. Keeping watch over us. Cheering us on. Laughing with us. Dancing with us. Singing with us.

We are not promised tomorrow. Live today.

Be good to yourself and each other. Namaste’

Interview with God

In lieu of doing another Throwback Thursday, I wanted to share this video that I received from a friend this morning. I had seen it before but today with all that’s going on with hurricanes, fires, politics, and the world at large, it was such a profound reminder.

I believe in synchronicity … there are no accidents. This was given to me again for a reason. Enough said.

Be good to yourself and each other. Namaste’

Throwback Thursday – This Redhead

When my daughter was born, I remember one of the nurses saying “look at that red hair!” Her grandmother on her father’s side was a redhead so I wasn’t too surprised.

As the doctor laid her on my belly, I looked at her and something told me it was going to be a wild ride. And it has been … in a good way.

We had our moments though, as mothers and daughters do. What mother hasn’t enforced a curfew and been told “I hate you!” Haha! Been there – done that. But I wouldn’t trade my life as her Mom for anything.

This image is one I took when she was fifteen. The year she thought she knew everything. It shows on her face, doesn’t it?

I know for sure that God is the one who got us through THOSE days. He has such a sense of humor!

She’s a lovely woman now with a sense of adventure that continues to inspire me and all who are lucky enough to know her.

TBT – I Love You

My daughter made me this card for my birthday last year. I’ll cherish it forever!

We worked together for the summer and absolutely had a blast. I came into the office on my birthday to find this on my desk. Made me cry ❤️

You’re the best, Michele! With love from a grateful Mom.

Good Times

This image came up today on my FB timeline and it took me right back to my years of being a single Mom. Wow!

There were some lean and lonely times but, looking back, I wouldn’t change anything.

I had a tribe of friends, family members and work associates who were all there when I needed them. We all grew together, supporting each other in every way we could. I truly believe there was divine guidance in play for all of us.

Many times there was too much month at the end of our money, so we would call each other and ask “what do you have in your pantry?” Then we would pool our food and get together for a meal with all the kids. Some of our meals were certainly creative, but it was a blast!

I’m very blessed to have these two children, Michele and Steve, who have grown into two fine adults. Even if they weren’t my children, I would choose them as my friends.
