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’

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’

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.

Throwback Thursday

I almost didn’t make it under the wire for throwback Thursday. Lol!

This image is one I took at a flower show several years ago.

All of the orchids were beautiful but this one kept me coming back to look at it over and over again.

Two of my favorite colors…purple and white. Yummy.

Have a blessed and beautiful day!

Parrot Head

Many years ago my son took me to a Jimmy Buffett concert. He and I are both big fans. Jimmy’s fans are called Parrot heads. Yep, that’s me!

When I need a mood lifter, I listen to one of his songs. One of my favorites is Creola from his Floridays album: 

Be good to yourself and each other. Namaste’

 

 

750 Words

wordsIt’s been what seems like a long time since I’ve posted anything here. There are several reasons for that, but that was then and this is now. I was posting on my other blog for a while and it was pretty fun, but now I’m back here. It’s not to say that I won’t be posting over there, too, so if you’re so inclined, I’d be honored if you’d follow that one as well.

My Mom passed away in late September and even though she was 92 (and I was so blessed to have her for so long), her passing has left a huge hole in my heart. She loved me unconditionally.

The subject of this post is WORDS. Why? Because I found a site that I really love and have started the practice of writing 750 words a day; a very healing exercise. Many years ago, I started the practice of writing “morning pages” what Julia Cameron refers to in her book, The Artist’s Way. She recommends doing them in long-hand but I seem to have a hard time staying with that practice, so the 750 words site is my answer to doing them because I can type my pages. And for me, it doesn’t matter what time of day that I do them; all that matters is that I do them. It’s the perfect brain dump for me. (One of the added benefits is that I sleep better). Yay!

Take good care of yourself and each other. Namaste’
