In Loving Memory of Dear Aunt Margaret

Your eternal life has now begun dear Aunt Margaret and now you are dancing to
Perhaps Love with your precious husband John and reunited with our loved ones in Heaven.

There are things that we don’t want to happen but have to accept, things we don’t want to know but have to learn, and people we can’t live without but have to let go. – Author Unknown
.`•.¸¸.•´♥ "Aunt Margaret You are Now In His Hands"

"You will lose someone you can’t live without,
and your heart will be badly broken,
and the bad news is that you never completely get over the loss of your beloved. But this is also the good news. They live forever in your broken heart that doesn’t seal back up. And you come through. It’s like having a broken leg that never heals perfectly—that still hurts when the weather gets cold, but you learn to dance with the limp." 

— Anne Lamott

Though nothing can bring back the hour
Of splendor in the grass, of glory in the flower;
We will grieve not, rather find
Strength in what remains behind;
In the primal sympathy
Which having been must ever be...”

God touched her with His Fingers and she slept

What the caterpillar calls the end of the world
God calls a Butterfly

This has always been a favorite of mine

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.

Love and prayers for my dear cousin Cheryl and husband all the family.
Our deepest sympathy to you all

The Mansion of Heaven

This world, however beautiful, was never meant to be
The place that we would call our home for all eternity.
And though we would not choose to leave, a loving
God knows best, and in His time,
He lifts us to a place of peace and rest,
For He has built a mansion where
His children will abide, free from pain and sorrow,
Forever at His side.
He said He’d never leave us to face our trials alone,
And though sometimes we fail Him, He never fails His own.
And even when our choices are less than He would ask,
He knows when human courage is unequal to the task.
We cannot judge what happens,
Though tears and questions start –
We only see what’s visible – God sees into the heart…..
And though there may be many things that we cannot explain,
We can be sure it breaks His heart to see His children’s pain.
In loving arms, He bears us to a quiet place apart
Where He mends the wounded spirit
And heals the broken heart.
And though these one we love so much
Have left our present sight, and passed into a
Better world of majesty and light,
Someday we’ll be together in our Father’s home above,
Where we’ll thank Him for His mercy
And praise Him for His love.

❥Wishing you a soul inspiring day, 
dear ones ♥.¸¸.•´¯`»✿

One of the keys to happiness is gratitude. Although we all go through tough times, we all have things that we can be thankful for. There is a reason for the phrase:
"Gratitude determines our Attitude" : )
~Love your life every single moment of it 
This moment in time will never come again
Value and cherish it for the gift that it is. 

It's a gorgeous May day out there and I am dreaming of my eternal springtime and sunshine

"Be faithful in small things: 
it is in them that your strength lies."
~ Mother Teresa ~

You are the pieces of gold that travel
through my soul. (Seoul)

There have been many celebrations already.
He is an enriched and enchanted and very lucky little boy.
He is a shining star just like his fabulous parents♥

A good laugh and a long night's sleep
are the two best cures for anything

Each morning when we awake, 
we have an opportunity to 
create our day with what inspires us the most.
Keep your thoughts focused on the positives, and bring

joy into your heart...
Beautiful cherry blossoms and calming music

Home Sweet Home

Home is where the heart can laugh without shyness. 
Home is where the heart's tears can dry at their own pace." 

~Vernon Baker

From our home sweet home to yours with love
Our home is a work of heart♥

Happy is the home where love resides and good friends visit often.

I plan to watch the world go by on the patio this summer
read, rest, relax and rejuvinate.
Summer time and the living is easy.

Upon awakening,
let the words "Thank You"
flow from your lips,
for this will remind you to begin your day
with gratitude and compassion.
~Neale Donald Walsch~

Today Kim graduates from the University of British Columbia
We plan to watch it online

So proud of all of our children and all of their glorious accomplishments in life♥

╰ღ╮❤╭ღ╯ Our family is a work of heart♥

Kisses sweet Prince I am told he looks just like his Daddy
Congratulations and much love to you all

Be in love with your life
every ounce of it
each and every day
in every way

Balzac and the Little Chinese Seamstress
would love to see this movie or read the book

There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement, and acceptance. We need to learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and our imperfections. If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love others or our potential to create. Evolution and all hopes for a better world rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of people who embrace life. ~John Lennon

"One Hundred Years From Now"

Author Unknown
One hundred years from now
It won't matter
What kind of car I drove
What kind of house I lived in
How much money I had in the bank
Nor what my cloths looked like
The world may be a little better
Because, I was important
In the life of a child.

A dear and cherished grandson is one year old today, (officially May 31st)  so an extra special birthday wish is sent with love to say, you bring such joy and sunshine with each single happy smile, and to watch you grow and thrive has been a pleasure, so worthwhile. As a grandparent, it's such a day to treasure and recall, as one of the most memorable and precious of them all. Happy 1st birthday.
I love you your Halmeoni♥

Need a Pep Talk

Need a pep talk?

Have a wonderful Saturday

Love to you all
An article written by our family member Chantelle so very proud indeed.

Also Michelle our niece has her book signing coming up and her book has been recommended
by Indigo for young readers.

“When you wish someone joy, 
you wish them peace,
love, prosperity, happiness... 
all the good things.”
~ Maya Angelou~

The reunion has been absolutely wonderful
all good things must come to an end.
It is with heavy hearts we say see you again soon
tomorrow as they leave for BC for 5 days for Kim's 
Graduation from UBC
How proud and happy we are for both Kim and Drew and all our children

Many fabulous gatherings while Kim and Drew are here.
they leave tomorrow and as always with heavy hearts we say
until we meet again.
Never can say good-bye
Good bye means I shall never see you again

ღ¸..¸ Some people walk around everyday lost on their journey in life... Some others hear a calling from above but just don't have the courage to follow... But the most blessed of all will listen to that calling... They will follow with their whole heart and soul and the life they once lived will never be the same again..

Great times shared with fabulous family, friends exquisite food
and festivities love and laughter and memories made for happily ever after.
