A Rainy Day


A Rainy Day

Today is the first day of the rest of my life.
My life gets more fabulous each day as
I look forward to what new experiences
each new day brings.
Today we have rain- glorious rain. It is falling steadily and constant. We see so little rain in our area of the country. It is always a Godsend whenever it arrives. This downfall began as we went to bed at about 9.45 pm last night and  has not stopped since then. Eventhough I water the garden, it does not respond the way it does when  rain falls.

We had a conversation with our son and his wife who are this week in Calgary in Canada. Our son is in Canada for work but he is also catching up with a school friend and his wife while they have the opportunity to be in Canada and so close. It’s so wonderful to have skype that enables us to keep in touch no matter where he is in the world

So the good thing from today is that our son spoke to us today. We got our grocery shopping done. I had a an enjoyable half hour at gym this morning.

What I am grateful for today is that rain is falling on my garden –  and skype.

God in my life today is the rain that is falling, cool weather, money to buy food, good and plenty food to eat, my little white book I read for 6 minutes each night and my prayers I say each day.

“God of peace, bring your peace to our violent world. ” Pope Benedict XVI when he visited Ground Zero on April 20 2008 –  where 2,750 beautiful people needlessly lost their life September 11 2001.
He also said: ” Peace in the hearts of all men and women and peace among all nations of the earth.”
Peace be with you.

The pleasure of giving can outweigh always receiving…….

Receiving makes giving

last longer.

Giving makes receiving

last even longer.

The smile on the face of someone receiving is 

what we receive for our gift of giving.

My word for today is “POSITIVITY


Each day I choose to live with my heart filled with joy and love.

Being the Difference

To be the difference

In someone’s life we

Don’t have to be brilliant,

Rich, beautiful, or Perfect.

We just have to care.

                                             -Mandy Hale

 To see the difference we want happening in our world.  We need

to become  the difference. WE need to be the difference.

My word for today is “CARE!”

I choose to live each day with love and joy in my heart.

Learning, solving, growing are all parts of living.

Every problem is a gift.

Without problems we

would not grow.

Sharing Our Joy

How about adding some joy to life,embracing the 

little things we sometimes forget to find enjoyment in…..


Make a life that sizzles and pops and makes us laugh

out loud. We don’t want to get to the end, or even to 

tomorrow, and realise that our life is a collection of

meetings, washing clothes, errands, receipts, dirty dishes,

and making beds.

We need to savour everything we eat, sing out loud in the car 

with the windows down, wear colourful shoes, stay up all night 

laughing, and paint the walls the exact same colour as 

the sky on nice clear day.

Sleep on nice clean sheets,

Throw parties and share our joy,

Read books that are so good they make us sad when they end.

Make everyday a day, such, that it makes God belly laugh,

Glad that He gave life to us and we love

 the wondrous gift He has given us,SO much.  

My word for today is “JOY!”

I choose to live each with a heart filled with joy and love.

Not All of the Story


Treasures In The Garden

Don’t be fooled by that happy smile.

The smile on my face does not mean my life is perfect.

It means that I appreciate what I have been blessed with.


I choose to be happy.

We can appreciate life even if it’s 

not perfect.  Happiness is

not fulfillment of what

we wish for, but an

an appreciation of what we have.

Once we start appreciating our life,

that is when we realise

how much we truly have to be thankful for.

My word for today is “APPRECIATION!”

I choose to live each day with love and joy in my heart.

You be the Judge

Life’s Judgments

Of all the judgments we pass in life
none is more important
than the judgment we pass on ourselves.
Nathaniel Brandon

We are our own biggest critics .

Today I chose to live with love and joy in my heart.

My word for today is ” JUDGMENTAL.”

A Senior Moment…….

It must be borne in mind that the

tragedy of life doesn’t lie in not

reaching your goal. The tragedy

lies in having no goal to reach.

                              Benjamin E. Mays

The people who grow and make the most impact…….

are those people who have goals. Seth Godin

 My word for today is “GOALS.”

I choose to live my life with joy in my heart.
