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.


A Special Day

Treasures In The Garden


Every day is a special occasion…….

We should not save anything for a special occasion:

Everyday we wake up is a special occasion.

There are things that we have not yet seen.

There are things we have seen and done

and not yet realized they were special.

Savour, not endure. Try to recognize the special moments and cherish them.

We must not take tomorrow for granted ….

see old friends we haven’t seen in ages

Call family,

 Apologize, mend fences,

Write that special letter, 

Tell our family and partner that we LOVE them

.add laughter and lustre to our lives

when we open our eyes and realize “today is SPECIAL!”

Everyday, every hour, every minute, every second is a gift!

Anne Wells (New York Times)

That’s what makes every day so SPECIAL!

……. because we are ALIVE!


My word for today is “SPECIAL!”

Random Acts of Gratitude

Treasures In The Garden

Want to release the lock to the secret of happiness…….

 When did you last pause to contemplate

 how really wonderful your life is right now?

 It’s pretty easy to take our everyday lives for granted.

The busyness of our lives doesn’t leave 

much time for reflection.

 We are much better at focusing in on what we don’t have

instead of appreciating all the good things we have 

and all the things that go right in our lives:


 Count your blessings– there are more of them than you think

Think positive-shift from negative to positive in every

 situation you encounter

Have an attitude of gratitude– practice thankfulness

 until it becomes second nature.

Enjoy the moments 

See the beauty in all that surrounds you

 Enjoy the miracles in all the small things that you do.

Be optimistic.

Live life to the fullest.

Be open-hearted and willing to look at the world with fresh eyes.
