We are all inventors,
each sailing out on a voyage of discovery,
guided each by a private chart,
of which there is no duplicate.
The world is all gates, all opportunities.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson

As each day comes to us refreshed and anew,
so does my gratitude renew itself daily.
The breaking of the sun over the horizon
is my grateful heart dawning upon a blessed world.
~Terri Guillemets~

The steadfast love of the Lord never 
ceases, his mercies never come to an 
end; they are new every morning.
~Lamentations 3:22-23~

Butterfly populations have been decreasing due to habitat loss, climate change and pesticide use. Butterflies are very important for pollination.
Many species of butterfly require overripe fruit to supplement their diets. Decaying fruits have carbohydrates and minerals that most butterflies need. Help butterflies thrive by doing the following:
Place a large plate or dish outside with another smaller dish within it. Fill the outer larger dish with enough water to keep ants from the smaller dish. Place overripe fruit on the smaller plate cut in sections so they are easy to feed upon. Don't smash the fruit so the butterflies do not become stuck accidentally. Instead simply slice fruit pieces you would otherwise throw out and place them on the smaller plate. It will help the butterflies thrive! It is best to replace the fruit pieces either daily or when the fruit has begun to rot. No longer than a couple of days at a time however.
We posted this a year ago - let us know if any of you have had success with this method.

"You may not be able to help everyone who needs help, but at least have compassion for another human who is suffering."

"The woman who follows the crowd 
will usually go no further than the crowd. 
The woman who walks alone is likely to 
find herself in places no one has ever 
been before.”

- Albert Einstein.

Sleep on your right side.

Why it works: It will influence your dreams. Turkish researchers found that people who tend to sleep on their right side have mellower dreams, with themes of relief, joy, peace and love. They also report feeling better rested and less dysfunctional during waking hours. 

Strange, true thing that might convince you: Sleeping exclusively on the left side can put pressure on the organs on that side of the body, 

Today we are remembering Linda McCartney. Linda passed away on April 17, 1998.
Its is rare that two people will find a true "soul mate" in each other. We have heard that Linda and her husband, Paul McCartney only spent 9 nights apart while they were together.
Paul bought us so much joy and happiness through his music and Linda did the same for him.

Linda was only 56 when she passed after a long battle with cancer.
RIP Linda.

17th April 1998 (16 Years ago today)
Lady Linda McCartney sadly passed away at the age of 56 after a three year battle with cancer.
Of their last few days together: 
On the afternoon of Weds 15 April 1998, Paul and Linda went for a last desert ride. Paul had to put a hay bale down for Linda to step up on as she climbed carefully into her saddle. As they rode gently along the trails a rattlesnake crossed their path. The sun was setting as they arrived home, just before 7pm, smouldering red over distant Tucson, its last rays streaming through the sentinal cacti. The desert night has a timeless stillness, the stars very bright. When the sun rose on Thursday 16 April, Linda felt too unwell to get up and spent the day in her bed, a gentle breeze blowing through the house. She slipped into a coma. Night again, the last night. The darkest hours come before the dawn. The children told their mother they loved her. She became restless around 3am. Paul got into bed with Linda and told her she was on Blankit; they were riding through the Sussex woods; 'the bluebells are all out, and the sky is clear blue'. By the time he'd finished the story his wife was dead.
