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.


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.


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.

At this moment

Treasures In The Garden


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.

How to Know You have Succeeded

Treasures In The Garden

How will you know you have succeed in life?


To laugh often and much;

to be respected by your peers;

when you have received the affection of children;

when you earn and are appreciated by honest critics;

when you can endure betrayal by false friends;

when you can appreciate the beauty that surrounds you;

when are able to find good in other people;

when you can leave the world a better place than when you entered it,

whether it be by a healthy child

a garden patch,,

a changed social condition;

to know that even one life has been made easier

because you have lived and trod upon this earth.

  This is to have succeeded in life.
