My favorite word in the whole vocabulary of all the languages on our planet is Love. It means the same thing no matter where you are. Love is universal. It sums everything up. Just this one word!
It brightens the day, makes the impossible seem possible. The bad – not so bad and is the very foundation that hope rests upon … the one word … LOVE!
I send love to everyone today. It is an especially hard Monday/Tuesday today for many many millions of people on our planet, Both nationally and abroad.
Perhaps, today, we can point a few less fingers, blame a few less people, think not so many petty, selfish or greedy thoughts and instead think about love and loving! I guess news “talk show hosts” are getting paid (now, when they voice their opinions) to say and broadcast petty and mean things and …
Politically speaking (USA), my message to all of you politicians out there is … GROW UP, you are all acting like spoiled children (all parties) instead of responsible, polite and well-mannered individuals. Our government will always have those with varying agendas but NO ONE has to be mean (nasty) during discussions and the manner in which they conduct their public activities.
The three main political parties in this country are Republicans, Independents and Democrats and since acronyms have become so popular please note that the acronym for these three parties is R.I.D., which is how many Americans are starting to feel about you and how you’ve been governing in Congress. so STOP IT!
Do you job. Get it done, but with the dignity and honor that your position deserves. And another thing, Our President is the duly elected President of our United (all of them) States and as such Dignity and Honor should be extended to him as well, or our current political parties are really of no value to us Americans any more. And getting rid of the current political parties (R.I.D.) might be the best way to change things!
Life is too short (yours included) for the behavior I and millions of others witness daily (while nothing is getting done) and ALL AMERICANS ARE SICK OF IT!)
Most especially when now we should be seeing what we can accomplish together as a UNITED States of America (and yes there are 50 states, not one or two or 13) and not the horrible nastiness that we’ve been exposed to.
We need jobs, an improved infrastructure, fairness and equality but mostly we need a HUGE change in attitude and how we conduct ourselves.
We are all of various ethnic, genders and backgrounds (every single one of us) and we are all citizens but when bad weather hits anywhere, then we are reminded that which we should be ALL THE TIME! Human beings in need of love and support and each other – and nothing else is more important than that! Nothing!

Very well said Penny. I have been saying for a long time that if we would all strip aside labels that we place on any manner of things, especially politics (Republicans, Democrats, Independents), how different the world might be. If politicians voted with their hearts and minds instead of along party lines, would we as a nation be in a different place? I have to believe that we would.
You and I think alike when it comes to this subject (well many subjects, now that I think about it) but so true – what a much better place it would be.
Hope everything is okay. Sending love your way Penny
All’s well Alastair, dear sweet friend of mine. Busy with some offline things and a bit of “thinking” in the process too. Hope all is well with you and your family! 🙂 xo
I thought you may be. Was just worried about my friend 🙂
Keep spreading the word Penny! Eventually your writings will fall on appropriate ears! 🙂
Hi Debby, thank you. I was offline for a little over a week so doing the catch-up thing here. Always happy to spread the word when it’s “Love”! Hope you have an excellent Thanksgiving! 🙂 xx
Same to you my friend 🙂
Tell them, Penny. Your love arrows have arrived in the UK 🙂
It sounds as if your politicians are clones of ours.
Hi Sarah, hope you are doing well, I was offline for about a week so doing a little bit of catch up. I think politician are clones as you say, In fact, sadly predictably so! 🙂 xo
Thank you so much. I was offline for about a week so just reading this now. Again my thanks for your reading and commenting, very much appreciated by me! 🙂
wow, I have never thought about it. That LOVE sum up verything 🙂 While I was reading this I tryed to find another word that sum up as much as LOVE , but no.. I didn’t find a word..
Beatiful post and go Penny! 🙂
Hi Tina, thank you dear friend. I was offline this past week so just now reading this here. You sweetie you – thanks again Tina! 🙂 xo
Well said indeed! We’ve been out of touch with the news visiting Grandchildren. There isn’t another shutdown is there? Our politicians are driving us crazy too, so mean spirited, looking out for themselves and not for those less fortunate. They sicken me.
I do like the BF quote above.
I wish we could all live by the Golden Rule which I have blogged about several times – and will continue so to do! 🙂
Hi, no just the usual idiocy that goes on and on! I’ve been gone myself for over a week, so like you I’m playing catchup online! The Golden Rule, such a simple thing – one would think! 🙂
No consolation, AnElephant is sure, but politicians in UK and France are just the same bampots as you have over there.
And he is sure that you understand his word even if you have not heard it for a while.
Bampot, what an excellent word. Love it, even after you wrote and explained it to me, although I pretty much had a hunch of what it was, as you mentioned. Many hugs to you, xxxxx
Perfectly stated. R.I.D, indeed
Thanks Valentine, I was offline a week, so just now reading this and of course am glad you agree! 🙂
I guess politicians are the same everywhere. I only read the obituary page of the newspapers and for job adverts!!
Very wise of you Celestine. I was offline for a little over a week so sorry for this delay in responding my dear friend! xo
very well said !!!
Thank you Stephie, and I apologize for the delay I have been offline for a week. Thank you for stopping by and commenting, very much appreciated! xx
!!!!!!! absolutely !!!!!!!!!!!
🙂 Total Agreement! xoxo
xo 🙂 🙂 xo
Word! 🙂 xo
Excellent post my dear Penny. I pretty much quit watching television and reading newspapers months ago because it was making me ill watching and reading about all the blaming, mud-slinging, and garbage that is in the media anymore. I like the following quote… in a few words, it says a lot.
“Either write something worth reading or do something worth writing. ”
– Benjamin Franklin
Hello dearest friend, I’ve been offline for a bit, but agree completely, dearest and special friend of mine! xo
I feel the same way about politicians, but I’m afraid we level-headed voices are being drowned in the sea of extremism.
Hi Alejandro, been offline for about a week, but I agree with you. A sea of extremism is totally accurate here!
I agree most politicians are like spoiled child, getting the wealth they want, the power they wish for, and the livers from others…but it is not USA alone…Have a nice day, wish our wish come true, a world of love and humble.
We shall keep wishing and thinking positive, Yes! A very good thing. Thank you for your wise words! xo
Sending truckloads of love and hugz to you! ♥
Hi Patty, thank you, wow, truckloads, too cool, thank you and whole bunches back at you – with love and hugs! xo
I only needed to read the title and I pressed like. Well I did read it though too. but I so agree with it, you know me Penny! Love you!
Love to you Ute, Always, of course! 🙂 xo
Excellent post. I;m already sick and tired of the nastiness going around here.
Thanks Ren, I couldn’t agree more! I hope your past week has been a good one for you. 🙂
Great message regarding love PH…
Yes understand the political issue here too… That shutdown is getting pretty stodgy & tough, eh?…
But well you know politics is always involved with economical interests, unbridled ambition, corruption…
And well then… sometimes it is absolutely hard to find out balance and/or harmony.
Common sense should prevail… Hope it does…
Sending many hugs & LOVE. ❤
Thank you dear Aquleana, I quite adore you!
Hugs and Love,
Good to see you are back …
Love to you too , XXOO PH!!! Aquileana 🙂
You go girl 🙂
Well said Penny. We are hearing about it over here as well, and some of the talk shows are condemning the parties asking why they will not listen to the elected person, when things went through the senate anyway. If something didn’t get passed, it wouldn’t be put into play. If it was put into play, it was passed and therefore the majority voted for it. It isn’t the time throw toys out of the pram.
Thanks Alastair. Your words are well expressed and I of course completely agree with you! But politicians would never throw out their “toys”, as they would then not know what to do with themselves! ha,ha! 🙂 xo
LOL Very true. Well, they would kiss a baby and steal their toys instead 😉
