Soulful Sunday

“If you are going to achieve excellence in big things, you 

develop the habit in little matters. Excellence is not an 

exception, it is a prevailing attitude.”–Charles R. Swindoll

“Sunday is the golden clasp that binds together the volume of the week.”

― Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

"Strength does not come from winning. Your struggles develop your strengths. When you go through hardships and decide not to surrender, that is strength.”–Arnold Schwarzenegger

“With everything that has happened to you, 
you can either feel sorry for yourself 
or treat what has happened as a gift.
Everything is either an opportunity to grow
or an obstacle to keep you from growing.
You get to choose.”
~Wayne W. Dyer

So deeply moved by all your beautiful words and tributes.

Aunt Margaret will live on forever in our hearts♥

“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...”

― William Wordsworth

"The Soul would have no rainbow if the eyes had no tears."
~ Native American Proverb

Tears are a sacred cleansing, allowing us to open deeper, revealing the gift within ♥

In one of the stars I shall be living
In one of them I shall be laughing
And so it shall be as if all the stars were laughing
when you look a the night sky.
The Little Prince

I will write peace on your wings 
and you will fly all over the world" 
~Sadako Sasaki

“Perhaps they are not stars, but rather openings in heaven where the love of our lost ones pours through and shines down upon us to let us know they are happy.”

Weekend Weekend Cha Cha Cha

Would love to see this movie.

I love Morgan Freeman and suspense filled movies....................

Weekend Weekend Cha Cha Cha

It's a long weekend here in Canada

There's a colour for the thing that everyone wants most.  Maybe it's ruby, as in slippers and three clicks and the feeling there is no place like it.  It's the colour of the heart's deepest desires: to be where you truly belong, and it is everything that matters.  There is a deep, rich, enduring colour.  It's the colour of being gone a little too long, then finally coming home.

From a Benjamin Moore ad

 in the LCBO Food and Drink Magazine

Beautiful ruby red flower found on this page on Flickr

I love the Ruby Red Colour

The happiness of your life, depends on the quality of your thoughts !! ♥ :)

Have a great long weekend  Happy Canada Day♥

To be rich in admiration and free from envy, to rejoice greatly in the good of others, to love with such generosity of heart that your love is still a dear possession in absence or unkindness - these are the gifts which money cannot buy.~Robert Louis Stevenson

A New Week Begins

All that is eternal in me
Welcomes the wonder of this day,
The field of brightness it creates
Offering time for each thing
To arise and illuminate.
~ John O'Donohue ~

Has anyone seen that gorgeous Super Moon in the night sky?


We are hoping to catch the fireworks in the distance from our balcony tonight on the Detroit River.

With any luck we will be able to catch some glimpses and enjoy.

Have a fabulous Monday.

Staying indoors as it is very hot and humid outside.

I do much better in central air.


I go for my walks very very very early in the mornings.

While it is still cool outside.

I love beautiful umbrellas from Asia...............

All of these photographs are courtesy of Flickr I believe

Always always always say something nice.

May the Universe grant me

The power of water to accept with ease and grace that which
I cannot change
The power of fire to change with energy and courage those things which  I can
The power of air to know
with intuition and wisdom which is which 
The power of Earth to continue with strength
and steadfastness on my journey

I love John Legend
I love this song so very much

´´¯`•.¸¸. ི♥ྀ.
The child whispered, "God, speak to me"
And a meadow lark sang.
The child did not hear.

So the child yelled, "God, speak to me!"
And the thunder rolled across the sky
But the child did not listen.

The child looked around and said,
"God let me see you" and a star shone brightly
But the child did not notice

And the child shouted,
"God show me a miracle!"
And a life was born but the child did not know.

So the child cried out in despair,
"Touch me God, and let me know you are here!"
Whereupon God reached down
And touched the child.
But the child brushed the butterfly away
And walked away unknowingly.

(¸.❀⁀⋱‿✿“The true way to live 
is to enjoy every moment as it passes, 
and surely it is in the everyday things around us
that the beauty of life lies.”
~Laura Ingalls Wilder~

The verse below as read on the gorgeous blog The Dutchess:

Dawning of amber and amethyst eves;
Soft in the south wind the laughter of leaves;
Breath of the poppy and death of the rose,
-- Midsummer comes and Midsummer goes! 

Dapple on cheek of the apple and plum;
Honey bees droning a die-away hum; 
Swales in shimmer and dales in a doze,
-- Midsummer comes and Midsummer goes! 

Darting of dragon fly, flutter of moth;
Barley in window and wheat in the swath;
Hush song and thrush song!--the mother bird knows!
-- Midsummer comes and Midsummer goes! 

Moonlight and noonlight all glamour and glean; 
Hillside and rillside a thrall to a dream;
Capture the rapture before the days close
,-- Midsummer comes and Midsummer goes!

--Clinton Scollard (1860-1932)

I have never met a person 
whose greatest need was anything other than real, 
unconditional love.
You can find it in a simple act of kindness
toward someone who needs help.
There is no mistaking love.
You feel it in your heart.
It is the common fiber of life,
the flame that heals our soul,
energizes our spirit and supplies passion to our lives.
It is our connection to God
and to each other.
~Elizabeth Kubler-Ross~
