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.

Focus on Powerful Vibes


Treasures In The Garden

Our mind is a powerful thing.

When we fill it with powerful thoughts

our Life will begin to change…..

I will no longer allow negative

thoughts or feelings to drain me

of my energy. Instead I will only

focus on all that is good in my life.

I will think it, feel it, speak it….

by doing this I will send out vibes

of positive energy into the world,

and I will be grateful for all the

 wonderful things that it will bring

                  into my life.

An Optimistic View


Treasures In The Garden


Let there be peace on earth…

and let it begin with me.

How different life would be

if we stopped making negative

judgmental  assumptions about

people that we meet on life’s pathway.

Let us begin today looking 

for the good in everyone 

who touches our life,

and respect the journey

that they too are making upon this earth.

                                               Steve Maraboli (American Inspirational Author)

My word for today is “RESPECT!

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

Life Plans


Treasures In The Garden

What we plan for our day ahead may never occur…….

Those who died yesterday

had planned for today.

And those who have died 

today had plans

for tonight.

We must not take our life for granted.

In the blink of an eye

everything can change.

So we need to forgive often

and love with all our heart.

We may never know

when we may not have

the chance to forgive again.

                        Fb/hugs and kisses.

……. we wont always know when our time will be up!

My word for today is “FORGIVE!”

I plan  to live each day with my heart filled with joy.

Holy Cow !


Treasures In The Garden

Living the best life possible…….

Life’s journey is not about

arriving at our grave

in a body that is well preserved….

But rather it is to skid in

sideways, totally worn out

shouting: ” Holy Cow….

what a journey that was!”

I have lived a total and full life.

Thank you, God!

…. I hope I have done what you asked.

I will live my life with a heart filled with joy and gratitude!

My word for today is “JOURNEY!”

The Power of Positivity


 

Treasures In The Garden

 

Choose to be happy:

Happiness is a choice,

not a result.

Nothing can make us happy

until we choose to be happy.

No person will make us happy

unless we decide to BE happy.

Our happiness will not come to us.

                                           

It will only come from us.

                          Ralf Masterton

I choose to live with joy in my heart.

Today’s word is “CHOICE!”

Only we can make that choice.

A New Year Resolution


Treasures In The Garden

Here we are in the brand new year of 2017. 

Most of us will be thinking of New Year resolutions. Then, by the end of January we will have broken them and tried again a couple more times. It’s so frustrating because our good intentions have gotten lost in the craziness of just living our normal day.

So I thought that maybe as we are experiencing our normal day we could count the physical luxuries we take for granted, that other people would love to experience, but do not have these luxuries on hand.

Think about how many small luxuries we may have experienced today……. Count them up!

Did you wake this morning in a comfortable bed?

Did you have clean water to drink?

Was there hot water to shower in?

Did your bus or train run on time?

Did your car start? Did it run well?

  Did you eat a nourishinghealthy lunch?

Was there a  hot drink to have when you arrived home?

 Was there someone or a pet to welcome you home?

These are all things we so often take for granted.

Take a moment to appreciate each one of these things to the fullest.

Think about how fortunate we are in so many different ways. Let these little luxuries create a sense of  richness and wellbeing in your life.

And feel glad and grateful and fantastic.

Take notice and have gratitude for the smallest pleasures to make a huge contribution to our everyday happiness.

So many people don’t have these fortunate that most of us view as mundane things that are part of daily living. 

And we can have this wonderful happiness everyday.

My word for today is “APPRECIATE!”

I choose to live everyday with my heart filled with joy.
