“Words expressed in kindness from one human to another,
is a sharing of affection … touching others with an essence of grace and love …
a needed nourishment for one’s soul.” ~ Plh
Animals have no words to use to express their affection. Humans do. With just a few well spoken words each and every single one of us has the ability to make a positive or negative difference in another person’s day.
Using our words wisely, with affection, is a happy thing to do.
“If there were truly an easy way to get from here … to where each of us want to be in our lives
… we would all go that way.” ~ Plh
There is no easy way. There are however the following rules of the road (which I believe is the stuff of miracles):
- A belief of self – worth, values & capabilities, coupled with determination & commitment.
- Knowledge – never stop learning!
- Wisdom – listen to, learn from & pass on.
- Hope – a neverending belief in possibilities & potentials
- Faith – spiritually, emotionally, and/or mentally. A belief that there is more to life than what you think you understand.
- Charity – Gracefully accepting help (as needs be) but also reaching out an extended hand to others. A basic foundation of unconditional love.
- Gratitude – Should really come first. Never stop being grateful for what you do have.
- Love – I’d like to think no explanation is necessary. We all need love.
So what are you searching for?
All or perhaps most of the above? The only “Way” I can recommend is to learn and follow the above “rules of the road” faithfully, with great self determination. Seek out the wise. Acquire knowledge thru experience and remain open to change. Reach out to others with love in your heart. Believe you can. Have faith in miracles, they do happen!
I wish you well on your journey. Take care of you.
“For me, rain brings a feeling of renewal. A cleansing, a scrubbing away of yesterday’s woes.
For a child, its one more thing of joy and wonder!” ~ Plh
Today, take some time to renew, refresh, enjoy and above all, wonder – at the mysteries of life!
Hope your week is going well, take care of you.
Today the citizens of U.S.A. celebrate their country’s independence day.
I am proud to be an American. I’m proud of my fellow Americans, even if I disagree with some of them on various issues and actions.
One of the things that I hold dear is that we can agree to disagree (for the most part) in a democratic government, even with all the problems currently being faced, when adversity strikes, we band together, unified, to make the positive difference.
Today in Richland, Washington, my home, there may not be many fireworks. With unusually ongoing hot weather (100°-110°F) and the outbreak of fires nearby, it is not safe.
So today is a quieter day of celebration and introspection. It has become a good day to reflect on the direction
our country is headed and how …We The People … can help make a positive difference for the good of ALL Americans.
Freedom is a two sided coin, the other side of freedom is accepting responsibility, by making tough choices that insures our right to remain independent. This includes voting, so our free voices get heard and count.
I have faith in us … we Americans. I believe in the awesome diversity of our great country and our people and in our ability to make a positive difference going forward.
“…one nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all!”
Happy 4th of July! 🎉🎆☺
“Be careful not to get lost in your own life by trying to follow ‘too closely‘ the lives of others.” ~Plh
So very easy to get caught up in events, situations and circumstances of those around us.
It is important to care and be involved. It’s equally important to recognize when you’ve become so involved that you are neglecting yourself and your own well-being.
Stay balanced and healthy my friend!
Have a happy week and as always … take care of you!
“When we hold onto beauty of life
… with our eyes
… with thoughts & actions
and our hearts …
We light up our lives & our souls!” ~ Plh
Have a most wonderful weekend, my global friends, take care of you!
with much affection,
… Pass it on!
No secret elixir, no magic formula, no chemical compound cures as well as loving & being loved … nothing!
(This reminder brought to you by those living things who need love – that’s all of life … hint hint – including those who are currently giving love, those who are currently receiving love and those – good for you – who are doing both!)
Thank you! (Absolutely nothing was harmed in the making of this message … only loved!)
wishing you all well this day,
~ Penny ❤
