Spring Blossoms

The beauty and peace of Heavenly Rest grounds and gardens
Canada geese babies venture into the pond ducks near and a beautiful 
white crane

Beautiful white crane I love at the pond

Everyone was leaving flowers for their Mother's for 
Mother's day at Heavenly rest and sending prayers
up to Heaven

“But there's a story behind everything. How a picture got on a wall. How a scar got on your face. Sometimes the stories are simple, and sometimes they are hard and heartbreaking. But behind all your stories is always your mother's story, because hers is where yours begin.”

Mitch Albom, For One More Day

Beautiful flowering trees at Heavenly Rest

Blossoms of spring

These trees our in our condo grounds

So beautiful

An Angel in the woods at Heavenly Rest

Lots of flowers for Mothers Day

China's outer lands

She dreamed impossible dreams, followed her heart & created her own little fairytale.

Trilliums in bloom along Normandy road

I love how this lilac bush and snowball bush
have merged

Thanks Cheryl for always putting a song in my heart

As I stand by my window and breath the fresh air,
I notice Spring's signature penned everywhere:

The snow's disappearing beneath greening grass,
While buds and green sprouts are emerging at last.
New plumage embellishes birds on the wing,
And a fresh note of joy sparks each song that they sing.
An early Spring shower pours droplets of white,
As a wintering cloud slowly makes it's last flight.
In wakening woods I can hear peepers sing;
Redundant their song, yet as new as each Spring.
As I stand by my window and breath God's fresh air,
I rejoice in Spring's signature penned everywhere.

This fairy sampler is so beautiful
Brenda this one is calling out your name

Follow your dreams they know the way
and when your heart speaks take good notes
Love to you all
Have a day full of peace and love

From the sight Spotted on Facebook

Spotted : A few weeks ago I was walking with my dog on riverside and I noticed an older gentleman who was having trouble collecting papers that went flying around because of the wind. I helped him gather what I could and once we were done I walked over to him. I gave him what I had from what looked like very old letters. I asked him if he noticed anymore missing. I took a closer look and I noticed watery eyes. He said he accidently dropped his book that had all these letters in it, letters that him and his wife wrote each other throughout the years. I told him I would help him. Every letter had a number in the top right corner and he had a total of 195. He was missing page 17 and 77, so we started looking. A few others joined in after about 10 minutes of searching. At one point we almost had 15+ people looking for he last missing page 77. While looking he told me his wife had passed away 5 years ago and every now and then he pulls out these letters that they wrote to each other while he was away from her(before texting and emails). I broke down into tears just listening to him tell me the story. Suddenly we hear a scream from a distance. This middle age man was trying to run as fast as he could to us screaming "I FOUND IT" this old man was so anxious to see the last page to make sure it was the right one. I was so happy to see that page 77 was now in his hands again. I helped him count the papers one more time to make sure they were all there. To all those people who walked by and stopped to help, you are amazing. To that old man, I hope one day I find exactly what you found with your wife. It was so beautiful to sit and talk to him for that little while.
I just thought I would share this story, hoping it makes someone's day!
Look at the size of my friends roses
from her garden in Las Vegas
This day is a rose

“The mind can go in a thousand directions,
but on this beautiful path, I walk in peace. 
With each step, the wind blows. 
With each step, a flower blooms.” ~ Thich Nhat Hanh

“The pale stars were sliding into their places. 
The whispering of the leaves was almost hushed. 
All about them it was still and shadowy and sweet. 
It was that wonderful moment when, for lack of a visible horizon, 
the not yet darkened world seems infinitely greater
—a moment when anything can happen,
anything be believed in.” ~ Olivia Howard Dunbar
