I'm glad those words poked you in the ribs Ann ( in a good way) because sometimes we need to listen to what our body is trying to tell us. I'm the same, if I rest or take time out I feel terribly guilty, yet in order to be able to look after somebody else well, we need first of all to look after ourselves.

Sending a pillow of happy thoughts to create wonderful dreams,
A blanket of care to keep you blessed in life, and a prayer to protect you always.
Good night, God bless. xx

Good morning to you all.

Never underestimate the healing power of a long, deep breath.
Not only does it create inner calm, it gives you space to acknowledge and appreciate that this breath is not your last one.

The OTHER serenity prayer.

God, grant me the serenity to stop beating myself up for not doing things perfectly,
the courage to forgive myself because I am working on doing better,
and the wisdom to know that you already love me just the way I am.

Goodnight, sleep well. xxx

Thank you Ann and I love your early morning prayer. It's a prayer that fills me with hope and peace.

Sorry if I've posted this one before. x

Life is too short.
Grudges are a waste of perfect happiness.
Laugh when you can.
Apologize when you should and let go of what you can.
Take chances.
Give everything and have no regrets.
Life is too short to be unhappy.
You have to take the good with the bad.
Smile when you’re sad.
Love what you got and always remember what you had.
Always forgive but never forget.
Learn from your mistakes but never regret.
People change and things go wrong, but always remember, life goes on.


Much love to you all. xx

Very soon, the forest floor around here will be covered with trillium, a lovely sight that always makes me smile. Perhaps they are smiling at me too.


"Did you know...that when you walk past a flower, whether it be in
somebody's garden or on a vacant hillside, the flower will always smile at you.

The most polite way to respond, I've been told, is to cheerfully return the smile."

Me too, exzim.

Ann - Aren't some species of Trillium endangered? So pretty.
I know they were smiling back at you.

I love that too Ann and I love the pic too. The Trillium is very pretty, it's known here as 'wake robin.'

It was endangered here at one time and it is still against the law to pick it or transplant it.

It is the provincial flower of Ontario too, most appropriately.

I'm glad it's growing again Ann, I believe it takes a long time to establish.

Life isn’t always fair.
Some people are born into better environments.
Some people have better genetics.
Some are in the right place at the right time.
If you’re trying to change your life, all of this is irrelevant.
All that matters is that you accept where you are, figure out where you want to be, and then do what you can, today and every day, to hold your head high and keep moving forward.

This is part of another reading I posted this morning, I liked it so much I brought it here. Love, kindness and respect are the trinity of a good heart.

“The base of all things is love and respect.”
–Vickie Downey, TEWA/Tesuque Pueblo

The greatest weapon of any Spiritual Warrior is love. Love will change minds; love will forgive; love will let go; love will cause good luck; love will heal; love will cry; love will get rid of resentments; love will overcome fear. Love loves love. Any human who is loving will be guaranteed respect. Respect loves love. We need to love and respect ourselves.

Love conquers everything Ann. xx

Each day, accept everything that comes to you as a gift.
At night, mentally give it all back.
In this way, you become free.


Goodnight, sweet dreams. x

You are strong for getting out of bed in the morning when it feels like hell.
You are brave for doing things even though they scare you or make you anxious.
And you are amazing for trying and holding on no matter how hard life gets.

Your words this morning inspire me, Daisy.


It can be heard in the doleful cry
Of a lonely whippoorwill . . .
In zephyr winds that softly touch
The nodding daffodil.

It can be seen in myriad reflections
On a moonlit lake . . .
In candles gleaming happily
Upon a birthday cake.

It can be felt in soothing warmth
Of summer's shining sun . . .
In rhythmic throbbing when two hearts
Beat metrically as one.

It can be smelled in sun-parched planting's
Gratitude for shower . . .
In the scent when soft wind kisses
Spring's first fragrant flower.

It can be savored only in
Undying thirst for Thee . . .
In lonely man imploring God
In meek humility.

It can be sensed while treading in
The paths where saints have trod . . .
In living, talking, loving, walking
Hand-in-hand with God.

~the six senses of prayer - anne shannon demarest


It can be seen in myriad reflections
On a moonlit lake . . .
One of my most spiritual moments when I was on Vancouver Island a few weeks back, was the moon shining on the passage. There was something that held me there, it was early in my visit and perhaps God telling me to just enjoy the beauty and it is one of my photos that I look at most often.
