Reading

Do you love to read? It loves you back...
• Reading fights stress. A University of Sussex study found that reading was the most effective way to overcome stress. It beats listening to music or sipping a cup of tea. In fact, heart rate and muscle tension tests showed it took volunteers just 6 minutes to relax once they started reading. Researchers say it doesn't matter what you read – getting caught up in a story gives your mind a chance to forget about the stress in your life.
• That stress relief can also help readers fall asleep faster. That’s because it calms an anxious mind, which is a main contributor to insomnia. And if you regularly read before bed, you prime your mind and body to associate reading with relaxation and falling asleep.

The Beauty of Trees

Let go of the past and go for the future.
Go confidently in the direction of your dreams.
Live the life you imagined.”

Trees I adore them

We had a very special tree from childhood
that me, my Sister and cousin Cheryl would spend
time at for hours enchanted in our own little world.

It's the sweet simple things in life that are the very best
after all.
I love the book
The Giving Tree
I sent Justin's copy from Childhood to Logan 
when he was born.

Things I've Learned . . . .
I've learned....
that the best classroom in the world
is at the feet of an elderly person.
I've learned....
that when you're in love, it shows.
I've learned....
that just one person saying to me,
"You've made my day!" makes my day.
I've learned....
that I feel better about myself when
I make others feel better about themselves.
I've learned....
that having a child fall asleep in your
arms is one of the most peaceful
feelings in the world.
I've learned....
that what we have done for ourselves
alone dies with us. What we have done
for others and the world remains and
is immortal.
I've learned....
that one sincere apology is worth more
than all the roses money can buy.
I've learned....
that words harshly spoken are as difficult
to retrieve as feathers in a gale.
I've learned....
that being kind is more important than
being right.
I've learned....
that you should never say no to a
gift from a child.
I've learned....
that I can always pray for someone when
I don't have the strength to help him
in some other way.
I've learned....
that no matter how serious your life
requires you to be, everyone needs a
friend to act goofy with.
I've learned....
that sometimes all a person needs is a
hand to hold and a heart to understand.

Song for today

Who will tell whether one happy moment of love or the joy of breathing or walking on a bright morning and smelling the fresh air, is not worth all the suffering and effort which life implies. ~Erich Fromm

~Maori Proverb

Let's celebrate
with champagne wishes and caviar dreams

A FRIENDSHIP SO SPECIAL
My cousin my loving friend
We don't always realize
That many things we do
Affect not only our own lives

But many others too



Just a single happy smile

can brighten up a day

For others who happens
To be passing by your way

A little bit of thoughtfulness
Letting others know you care
Expels a ray of sunshine
For everyone to share

And each time that you offer
Others a helping hand
And each time you show a friend
That you understand

Each time you have a kind
And gentle word to give
Helps others find the beauty
In this precious life we live

Happiness brings about happiness
Loving ways can bring about love
Giving is the wonderful treasure
That special friendships ARE made of

Written By : Ginny Bryant



Cheers my darling and a toast
to a very happy birthday
and a year full of only the very very best
