In loving Memory of Linda Ouellette


Always in our hearts and thoughts and prayers.

Your eternal life has now begun.

Love always to you all

The Next Place
By Warren Hanson
The next place that I go 
Will be as peaceful and familiar
As a sleepy summer Sunday
And a sweet, untroubled mind.
And yet . . .
It won't be anything like any place I've ever been. . . 

Or seen. . . or even dreamed of
In the place I leave behind.
I won't know where I'm going,
And I won't know where I've been
As I tumble through the always
And look back toward the when.
I'll glide beyond the rainbows.
I'll drift above the sky.
I'll fly into the wonder, without ever wondering why.
I won't remember getting there.

Somehow I'll just arrive.
But I'll know that I belong there
And will feel much more alive
Than I have ever felt before.
I will be absolutely free of the things that I held onto
That were holding onto me.
The next place that I go
Will be so quiet and so still
That the whispered song of sweet belonging will rise up to fill
The listening sky with joyful silence,
And with unheard harmonies
Of music made by no one playing,
Like a hush upon breeze.
There will be no room for darkness in that place of living light,
Where an ever-dawning morning pushes back the dying night.
The very air will fill with brilliance, as the brightly shining sun
And the moon and half a million stars are married into one.
The next place that I go Won't really be a place at all.
There won't be any seasons --
Winter, summer, spring or fall --
Nor a Monday, Nor a Friday,
Nor December, Nor July.
And the seconds will be standing still. . .
While hours hurry by.
I will not be a boy or girl,
A woman or man.
I'll simply be just, simply, me.
No worse or better than.
My skin will not be dark or light.
I won't be fat or tall.
The body I once lived in
Won't be part of me at all.
I will finally be perfect.
I will be without a flaw.
I will never make one more mistake,
Or break the smallest law.
And the me that was impatient,
Or was angry, or unkind,
Will simply be a memory.
The me I left behind.
I will travel empty-handed.
There is not a single thing
I have collected in my life
That I would ever want to bring Except. . .
The love of those who loved me,
And the warmth of those who cared.
The happiness and memories
And magic that we shared.
Though I will know the joy of solitude. . .
I'll never be alone. I'll be embraced
By all the family and friends I've ever known.
Although I might not see their faces,
All our hearts will beat as one,
And the circle of our spirits
Will shine brighter than the sun.
I will cherish all the friendship I was fortunate to find,
All love and all the laughter in the place I leave behind.
All these good things will go with me.
They will make my spirit glow.
And that light will shine forever In the next place that I go.


Also in our thoughts and prayers my sweet friend Karen's Mom
Evelyn Palmer who went to Heaven July 24, 2012.

Our love and prayers to you all

You are just too good to be true
I cannot take my eyes off of you

With memories of those we love outlined in golden thread.

Happy Saturday.....................

The only way to conquer all the hate and violence in this world is to spread love, love and yet more love.

I was shown how fragile life was on Saturday. I saw the terror on bystanders’ faces. I saw the victims of a senseless crime. I saw lives change. I was reminded that we don’t know when or where our time on Earth will end. When or where we will breathe our last breath. For one man, it was in the middle of a busy food court on a Saturday evening.
I say all the time that every moment we have to live our life is a blessing. So often I have found myself taking it for granted. Every hug from a family member. Every laugh we share with friends. Even the times of solitude are all blessings. Every second of every day is a gift. After Saturday evening, I know I truly understand how blessed I am for each second I am given.
I feel like I am overreacting about what I experienced. But I can’t help but be thankful for whatever caused me to make the choices that I made that day. My mind keeps replaying what I saw over in my head. I hope the victims make a full recovery. I wish I could shake this odd feeling from my chest. The feeling that’s reminding me how blessed I am. The same feeling that made me leave the Eaton Center. The feeling that may have potentially saved my life.

and so well loved and cared for.

I love you all so very much♥

For those who feel that being nice, and saying Hello, smiling, leaving special messages for people got you no where but rejection and hurt. Do not let that change the person that you are. If you are a kind, thoughtful person who does nice things, don't stop just because these people didn't appreciate the goodness inside you. It's their reaction or lack of response that is the problem, not you! Dont change you. They need to change, they need to work on themselves. Keep being the wonderful kind you.

Law of the Garbage Truck

Law of the Garbage Truck

One day I hopped in a taxi and we took off for the airport.
We were driving in the right lane when suddenly a black car jumped out of a parking space 
right in front of us.
 My taxi driver slammed on his brakes, skidded, and missed the other car by just inches! 
The driver of the other car whipped his head around and started yelling at us.
 My taxi driver just smiled and waved at the guy. And I mean, he was really friendly.
So I asked, 'Why did you just do that? 
This guy almost ruined your car and sent us to the hospital!'

This is when my taxi driver taught me what I now call, 
'The Law of the Garbage Truck.'

He explained that many people are like garbage trucks. They run around full of garbage, full of frustration, full of anger, and full of disappointment.
As their garbage piles up, they need a place to dump it and sometimes they'll dump it on you. Don't take it personally.

Just smile, wave, wish them well, and move on. 
Don't take their garbage and spread it to other people at work, at home, or on the streets.

The bottom line is that successful people do not let garbage trucks take over their day.
 Life's too short to wake up in the morning with regrets, 
 ... Love the people who treat you right.
 Pray for the ones who don't.
 Life is ten percent what you make it and  ninety percent how you take it!
 Have a blessed, garbage-free day!

Enjoy your Saturday
Keep cool everyone

Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass on a summer day listening to the murmur of water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is hardly a waste of time. ~John Lubbock

Love and laughter on this Friday

This photograph as seen on Pinterest


Flowers are food for our souls.

Laughter is one of the greatest and most powerful forms of courage available to you… Laughing at difficult circumstances allows you to face the situation, see it as a molehill instead of a mountain and step anyway… Laughter expands your attitude and your perception as well as your ability to grow and experience new things… Give yourself the incredible gift of laughter today…

Thank you God

Thank you for the world so sweet
Thank you for the food we eat
Thank you for the birds that sing
Thank you GOD for EVERYTHING.

I hope everyone is well.
We had quite a storm last night
with huge hail stones pelting everywhere.
Keep safe everyone...........

Summer storms are here.

Your thoughts

Your thoughts, like roadways, serve you for only so long before they need to be repaired, rebuilt or re-routed all together… You only know how well they are serving you by being aware of and questioning every thought that runs through your mind… Tune in and make sure the thoughts in your mind are taking you where you want to go; if not, create new roadways…

Summer's Peak

Summer's Peak
Hilda Sanderson

June lets summer softly in
With warm and sunny skies,
While hotter days beg for release
To which July replies.
And as the season slowly heats
With blazing searing passion,
The days grow long and lazy too,
In summer's special fashion.
And at its peak the world seems to
Relax just for a while
To bathe in nature's glow
And summer's sultry smile.

On a bulletin for July at Grandma's home
where she resides Riverside Place.

Me and my precious Grandmother
I love you Grandmother
more than you will ever know.

Canada Day in the finest way

Logan and his Daddy all dressed up for Canada day.
I sent Logan that little outfit
How precious are these.
All photographs are courtesy of his loving parents.
Thanks so very much for taking all of these photographs all the time
and for your love.

“Let us always meet each other with a smile, for the smile is the beginning of love.”
― Mother Teresa 

Family where new life begins 
and love never ends.

Though miles may lie between us
we are never far apart
For love does not count miles
It is measured in the heart.

We shall always be next door neighbors of the heart♥


Have a safe and wonderful Canada Day Weekend♥
