Lord Make me an instrument of your peace

"Lord, make me an instrument of your peace. Where there is hatred, let me sow love; where there is injury, pardon; where there is doubt, faith; where there is despair, hope; where there is darkness, light; where there is sadness, joy. O, Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console; to be understood as to understand; to be loved as to love; For it is in giving that we receive; it is in pardoning that we are pardoned; it is in dying that we are born again to eternal life. Amen."
— Saint Francis of Assisi

Happy Monday everyone.

My son dancing with his son in China
May they always enjoy a beautiful dance of life together.

Enjoy this most sacred and beautiful holy week

As spring blankets earth with its own little miracles
May Easter bless your life
in love.

Holy week

"You hold no sin, my child
Have no fear of what others think
For you hold a candle here tonight
And God will forgive all...

On the night of the Easter Vigil."
~from Easter Vigil, SpottedStar
Words and beautiful art work
from my dear friend Dani
I love you sweet friend

My beloved Mother 
always dressed us with love and pride
How I miss those days with her
with each and everyday more and more

Have a beautiful beginning to this most sacred and Holy week and Happy Palm Sunday

For, lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone;
The flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing of birds is come….”
Song of Solomon 2:11-12

Being HAPPY is good for your heart♥

Spring Dreaming with You

Our joys are doubled times 2

In our journey of life I am so very grateful to those who
have been by my side in good times and in bad
I love you all with all my heart

Spring Dreaming with you

“In the winter you may want the summer; in the summer, you may want the autumn; in the autumn, you may want the winter; but only in the spring you dream and want no other season but the spring!” ~ (Mehmet Murat ildan Words of Wisdom, Aphorisms, Wise Sayings, Quotations)

Happy Friday


There's part of the sun in an apple,
There's part of the moon in a rose;
There's part of the flaming Pleiades
In every leaf that grows.

Out of the vast comes nearness;
For the God whose love we sing
Lends a little of his heaven
To every living thing.

August W. Bornberger

Happy Friday Darlings
Enjoy your weekend

It is really cool outside
Hoping for glorious spring days ahead


Have you ever watched kids
on a merry-go-round?
Or listened to the rain
slapping on the ground?

Ever followed a butterfly's erratic flight?
Or gazed at the sun into the fading night?

You better slow down
Don't dance so fast
Time is short
The music won't last

Do you run through each day
On the fly
When you ask "How are you?"
Do you hear the reply?

When the day is done,
do you lie in your bed
With the next hundred chores
running through your head?

You'd better slow down
Don't dance so fast

Time is short
The music won't last

Ever told a child,
We'll do it tomorrow?
And in your haste,
not see his sorrow?

Ever lost touch, 
Let a good friendship die
'Cause you never had time
To call and say "Hi"?

You'd better slow down
Don't dance so fast

Time is short
The music won't last

When you run so fast to get somewhere
You miss half the fun of getting there.

When you worry and hurry through your day,
It is like an unopened gift....Thrown away...

Life is not a race.
Do take it slower

Hear the music
Before the song is over.

What is spiritual strength?
It's knowing you don't have to compromise yourself 
in any way, with anyone, over anything 
in order to be content, confident, and secure in life.

This beautiful quote as read on my dear friends blog Posted from Home

The Little Things"

It is the little things that count
And give a mother pleasure -

The things her children bring to her
Which they so richly treasure...

The picture that is smudged a bit
With tiny fingerprints,

The colored rock, the lightning bugs,
The sticky peppermints;

The ragged, bright bouquet of flowers
A child brings, roots and all -

These things delight a mother's heart
Although they seem quite small.

A mother can see beauty
In the very smallest thing

For there's a little bit of heaven
In a small child's offering.

~ Katherine Nelson Davis

You are unique in so many beautiful ways and have learned many lessons, navigated through many storms and survived many challenging times. And because of that very specific history, you are now ready for that next small, life changing step towards your calling, your heart’s desire, and your destiny.

Love these songs

"Those who Live passionately 
Teach us how to LOVE, and
Those who Love passionately 
Teach us how to LIVE."
~ Paramahansa Yogananda

“When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives mean the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand. The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing, not curing, not healing and face with us the reality of our powerlessness, that is a friend who cares.”

Music always magic for me

Thanks cousin Cheryl for the wonderful virtual coffee times every mornings always so wonderful
What a great way to start the day
Love you and thanks for all the love and joy you bring into my life

First Day of Spring

First Day of Spring  Take Care.. ツ ツ

No more winter no more snow, time to watch 

the flowers  grow. (✿◠‿◠)

"Spring makes its own statement,
so loud and clear that the gardener
seems to be only one of the 
instruments, not the composer."
~Geoffrey B. Charlesworth

Happy First Day of Spring...
“sweet spring is your
time is my time is our
time for springtime is love time
and viva sweet love

(all the merry little birds are
flying in the floating in the
very spirits singing in
are winging in the blossoming)

lovers go and lovers come
awandering awondering
but any two are perfectly
alone there's nobody else alive

(such a sky and such a sun
i never knew and neither did you
and everybody never breathed
quite so many kinds of yes)

not a tree can count his leaves
each herself by opening
but shining who by thousands mean
only one amazing thing

(secretly adoring shyly
tiny winging darting floating
merry in the blossoming
always joyful selves are singing)

sweet spring is your
time is my time is our
time for springtime is lovetime
and viva sweet love”~ E.E. Cummings

Time for fun in the sun

Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some stay for a while, leave footprints on our hearts, and we are never, ever the same.”

Not only is it the spring equinox but there will be a solar eclipse- very rare indeed.

7 keys to happiness

Hello Spring! 
Today is the Vernal Equinox, or the official beginning of spring.
It'll start at exactly 6:45 p.m. EST today, when the sun shines directly on the equator and day and night are of equal length. 
Tonight, we’ll also have a Black Supermoon! That’s when the new moon is closest to the earth in its orbit - but since it’s a new moon, it won’t be visible; therefore it’s a Black Supermoon.
As read on John Tesh website on Facebook

Happy New Moon. Happy Spring. Happy Happiness Day. Happy Everything!
