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.

In Appreciation


 

Treasures In The Garden

Have an appreciation for what we have….

The smile on my face

doesn’t mean my life is perfect.

It means I appreciate

what I have and what I

have been blessed with.

I choose to be happy.

My word for today is “APPRECIATION!”

choose to live each day with joy in my heart.

 

At The End


Treasures In The Garden

At life’s end:

What is really important

Is NOT what we BOUGHT

But what we BUILT!

Not what we GOT

But what we SHARED!

Not our COMPETENCE

But our CHARACTER

And not our SUCCESS

But our SIGNIFICANCE!

                            Sun Gazing

We occupied a special place

  in the scheme of things.

Every end is a new beginning:

My word for today is “SIGNIFICANCE!”

I choose to live every day with JOY in my heart.

Inner beautiful

Focus on awesomeness …….

 When you see something 

beautiful in someone,

TELL them.

It may only take a 

second to say,

but for them, the compliment may

last a lifetime.

I choose to live every day with joy in my heart.

 

My word for today is “COMPLIMENT!”

Being Ourselves


 

 

Treasures In The Garden

Don’t ever let someone else’s

bitterness change who we are.

When we are treated
badly by others….
walk away,
smile,
and keep on being ourselves.

     Change the way we look at things and things we look at CHANGE ……

 

Don’t our mix bad words

with our bad mood.

We have many

 opportunities to change a

mood, but …….we never get

the opportunity to replace

the words we have spoken in anger.

I am sorry if you have ever been the victim of my bad moods and anger.

I wish could change what I’ve done, but i can’t take it back.

I can only ask that you accept me for who I am now.

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

My word for today is “SORRY!” 

The Best Gifts to Give


Treasures In The Garden

Life has many treasures but a gift of ourselves is the best treasure of all.

Very often we will find that

 

the gifts which are the

most appreciated, and mean

 

the most are gifts of our time

 

and our love.

I will spend each day with a a heart full of joy and love.

My word for today is “GIFTS!”

Time and love are our life and cannot be bought- the most precious gifts to receive.
