Counting blessings




Treasures In The Garden

What blessings we’ve already got…….money can’t buy.

STOP………. looking for what

we haven’t got in our life.

And start a gratitude


for what we do have…….

…….love, family, good health, happiness….

The blessings are countless….

Write them down.

Add to them everyday.

 The “wants” will be small by comparison.

My word for today is “BLESSINGS”!

I will live in JOY!




Living Life to the Fullest

Treasures In The Garden

Life is for living, not just existing.

Life is short, live it.

Love is rare, grab it.

Anger is bad, dump it

Fear is awful, face it.

Memories are sweet, cherish them.

We live life for such a short while to be spending it being unhappy.

My word for today is “LIVING!”

Life Is An Echo….

Treasures In The Garden

What we give out in goodness…….

LIFE is an ECHO.

What we SEND out

comes BACK.

What we SOW

we REAP.

What we GIVE

we GET.

What we SEE

in others

EXISTS in us.


LIFE is an ECHO.

 It always gets

back to us.


 chinese proverb


……. will hopefully return!

My word for today is “ECHOES”

Sooner rather than later

Treasures In The Garden


Is it better to take the risk today…….

And a day may arrive

when the risk to remain

 tight and warm in our own little coocoon,

 will be greater than the risk 

we need to take to open our wings and FLY!


…….than to wait that little bit too long…..


My word today is “journey”

Making the most of today

Treasures In The Garden

Cherish the ones you love the most ….


You never know how long your life will be.

We often believe that we and everyone around us 

is invincible – and that we have loads of time. 

But we are NOT invincible

 Our loved ones, or ourselves, could be gone in an instant…..


Will we make the most of the time we have TODAY?

At this moment

How often do we take special people for granted….


How often do we tell the ones we love 

what they mean to us

and how grateful we are that they are part of our lives?

 How often do we willingly forgive 

those who have betrayed us,

 or hurt us sometime through our life?

How often do we remember that the ones we love

 will not remain here on earth with us forever?

We seem to take people in our life for granted.

We may leave it too late to reconcile or apologize.

But…… tomorrow may just be that bit too late!

So while we are alive we must never stop saying “I love you”, “thank you”

to those who bless our lives:

Appreciate people who are in our life,

be grateful for lessons learned,

forgive wrongs,

 rekindle bonds,

enjoy each moment of our life,

remember and value special people before they die.

All we have is this moment to express our love.
