World Gratitude Day

World Gratitude Day is today (Sept. 21st)
It’s not a well-known or even particularly observed “holiday”

But that’s okay.
Let’s just make every day “Gratitude Day”!
It begins like this: “I am grateful for…”
See how easy?!
Thanks for stopping by – have a wonderful day!

Happy Valentine’s Day

Spending the day with the one who holds my heart…


We all knew I meant him!

Happy Valentine’s Day – have a great weekend!


Dream big dreams.


There is nothing that works faster than for you to cast off your own limitations…

and dream about the wonderful things that you can become, have, and do.


Loving Snow

It’s amazing what you see when you’re not looking…

if you just open your eyes!


Yes, I’m certain that what shows up in this photograph is at least 2 snowflakes, but a heart is a heart!

And I’m amazed by how many hearts have been appearing in my life!

Be open!

‘Tis the season!


Lots of sunshine today made it look a lot warmer outside than it was ~ the snow kind of ruins the illusion of warmth, anyway!

As I was admiring the view, I noticed the shadows on the wall from the sun shining on the plants by the window and saw something wonderfully unforseen in those spots on the wall:


Do you think this is what Friedrich Nietzsche meant when he said “Love is not consolation. It is light.”??

Yeah, probably not.

Regardless, it’s a great reminder that love is everywhere ~ whether you’re actually looking for it or not!

Honoring the memory…


Nelson Mandela

Well, I had something completely different planned for today’s blog, but felt that I didn’t want to let the day go without acknowledging the passing of Nelson Mandela.

I’ll leave the facts and statistics of his life to the people who want to report that.

I merely want to pay my respects.

I can see no better way to do that then to share some of his quotes.

And, as you know, I certainly prefer to share my own photographs and/or posters, but these 3 that I found online seemed perfect to share.




Rest in Peace, Nelson Mandela.

You lived your passion by playing large and truly forged a more gentle, loving, and peaceful world.
