Happiness is not something ready made
It is a result of our actions
~Dalai Lama

What is Love?
Love is . . .
Being happy for the other person when they are happy,
Being sad for the person when they are sad,
Being together in good times, And being together in bad times.
Love is . . .
Being honest with yourself at all times,
Being honest with the other person at all times,
Telling, listening, respecting the truth,
And never pretending.
Love is . . .
An understanding so complete that
you feel as if you are a part of the other person,
Accepting the other person just the way they are,
And not trying to change them to be something else.
Love is . . .
The freedom to pursue your own desires while sharing your experiences with the other person, The growth of one individual alongside of and together with the growth of another individual.
Love is . . .
The excitement of planning things together,
The excitement of doing things together.
Love is . . . The fury of the storm, The calm in the rainbow.
Love is . . .
Giving and taking in a daily situation, Being patient with each other's needs and desires.
Love is . . .
Knowing that the other person
will always be with you regardless of what happens,
Missing the other person when they are away
but remaining near in heart at all times.

I love Spooky Stories

The Little White Dog

There was an old woman who had no family still living. Her only friend was a little white dog who went everywhere with her - with one exception. The dog loved the fireplace in winter, and after the old woman went to bed he would sometimes go and lie in front of the warm coals. Usually though, the dog slept at the very edge of the bed on a throw rug.

The woman wouldn't allow the dog on the bed with her, but if she became frightened or had a nightmare, she would put her hand down to the little white dog and he would lick it reassuringly.

One night the woman was reading her newspaper just before going to sleep. She shivered and pulled the comforter up around her as she read that a mental patient had wandered off from a nearby hospital. No one knew if the patient was dangerous of not; he was a suspect in the murders of several women who had lived alone.

The woman turned out the lights and tried to sleep, but she was frightened, and tossed and turned fitfully. Finally, she reached down to where the little white dog slept. Sure enough, a warm, wet tongue began to lick her hand. The woman felt reassured and safe, and left her hand dangling off the bed as she turned and settled in comfortably. She opened her eyes for a moment and looked through the open door into the living room.

There in front of the fireplace, sat her little white dog, gazing at the coals and wagging his tail.

Down beside the bed, something was still licking her hand.

Everyone is planning Halloween parties and many around our neighborhood are putting festive things out for the Trick or Treat Season

I love Suspense Thriller Movies and spooky stories.

On my very early morning walks it is pitch black outside
The wind was very cool off the lake today and I have on a heavy jacket.........
How it changes so quickly
On the weekend it was like a summer day.

Love and hugs and smiles

Some scenes around our home

Happy is the home where love resides and good friends visit often.

A friend:

A friend is one to whom one may pour out all the contents of one's heart,
chaff and grain together, knowing that the gentlest of hands will take and sift it
keep what is worth keeping and with a breath of kindness blow the rest away.

E. E. Cummings

Many ask me about my son daily
This is his latest update:

I was bombarded by flowers, ice cream cake, lolly cake, chocolate cake, chips, chocolates, presents, cards, hugs and lots of tears at my final day at Yaldhurst. The staff, parents and those lil' munchkins will be missed :'-(
He has been student teaching as you know..........

Thanks for your wishes and enquiries about him always
and about Ahram as well

Happy Birthday today to our lovely niece Michelle
May Heaven hear your every wish.

The Plant on our table is called Magic Bells♥

Lovely butterfly bush attracts all kinds of gorgeous butterflies

The little hummingbirds are still coming to our feeders
They have been keeping me company as I have been watering the plants outdoors.
Ah a slice of Heaven indeed
are all things sent from above♥
Weekend Weekend
Cha Cha Cha♥

The basic sources of happiness are a good heart, compassion, and love. If we have these mental attitudes, even if we are surrounded by hostility we feel little disturbance. On the other hand,
if we lack compassion, and our mental state is filled with anger and hatred
we will not have peace
~Dalai Lama

I love this version of Ave Maria

Thank you

Thank you to each and every one of you who bring so much joy and gladness into my life each and every day in all the ways.
It means more to me than words could ever express.

I love you all

As all my loved ones say
I am spoiled beyond belief with so much love and kindness
and I agree

I will make you brooches and toys for your delight Of bird-song at morning and star-shine at night. I will make a palace fit for you and me, Of green days in forests and blue days at sea.

~ Robert Louis Stevenson

Waiting for the birds to sing their aria to me
and sending you love...........

Peace is the foundation that love turns life into expressions of joy.

It has been a year since I have seen my son and another year yet
until we shall be reunited........
and it is then I will also get to meet Ahram
I don't like to wish my life away but a year cannot come quick enough

Ten Million Bicycles by Katie Melua

Impressed with at least a hundred bicyclists that zoomed by me
on my walk

Lost his mate his love right after they moved into the nursing home
I keep him company every time I visit Grandma

keep a green tree in your heart and perhaps a singing bird will come♥

I love songs sung by Adam Lambert

Adam Lamber~Mad World

All around are me are familiar faces
Worn out places, worn out faces
Bright and early for the daily races
Going nowhere, going nowhere
And their tears are filling up their glasses
No expression, no expression
Hide my head I wanna drown my sorrows
No tomorrow, no tomorrow

And I find it kind of funny
I find it kind of sad
The dreams in which I'm dying
Are the best I ever had
I find it hard to tell you
I find it hard to take
When people run in circles
It's a very very,
Mad world, Mad world

Children waiting for the day they feel good
Happy birthday, happy birthday
May they feel the way that every child should
Sit and listen, sit and listen
Went to school and I was very nervous
No one knew me, no one knew me
Hello teacher tell me what's my lesson
Look right through me, look right through me

And I find it kind of funny,
I find it kind of sad
The dreams in which I'm dying
Are the best I've ever had
I find it hard to tell you
I find it hard to take
When people run in circles
It's a very very
Mad world, Mad world
Mad world, Mad world

A Mother's Prayer"

I pray you'll be my eyes
And watch her where she goes
And help her to be wise
Help me to let go

Every mother's prayer
Every child knows
Lead her to a place
Guide her with your grace
To a place where she'll be safe

I pray she finds your light
And holds it in her heart
As darkness falls each night
Remind her where you are

Every mother's prayer
Every child knows
Need to find a place
Guide her to a place
Give her faith so she'll be safe

Lead her to a place
Guide her with your grace
To a place where she'll be safe

Celine Dion sang this song

Happy Birthday Danielle♥

“May your days be many and your troubles be few
May all God's blessings descend upon you.
May peace be within you may your heart be strong.
May you find what you're seeking wherever you roam.”
~An Irish Blessing

Listen to the Exhortation of the Dawn!
Look to this Day!
For it is Life, the very Life of Life.
In its brief course lie all the
Verities and Realities of your Existence.
The Bliss of Growth,
The Glory of Action,
The Splendor of Beauty;
For Yesterday is but a Dream,
And To-morrow is only a Vision;
But To-day well lived makes
Every Yesterday a Dream of Happiness,
And every Tomorrow a Vision of Hope.
Look well therefore to this Day!
Such is the Salutation of the Dawn!

I love you Danielle
May Heaven hear your every wish♥

Time passes.
Life happens.
Distance separates.
Children grow up.

Jobs come and go.
Love waxes and wanes.
Men don't do what they're supposed to do.

Hearts break.
Parents die.
Colleagues forget favors...
Careers end.

Sisters are there,
no matter how much time and how
many miles are between you.
A girl friend is never farther away
than needing her can reach.

When you have to walk that lonesome valley and you
have to walk it by yourself, the women in your life
will be on the valley's rim, cheering you on,
praying for you, pulling for you, intervening on
your behalf, and waiting with open arms at the
valley's end.

Sometimes, they will even break the rules and walk
beside you...Or come in and carry you out.
Girlfriends, daughters, granddaughters,

daughters-in-law, sisters, sisters-in-law, Mothers,
Grandmothers, aunties, nieces, cousins, and extended
family, all bless our life!

The world wouldn't be the same without women, and
neither would I.... When we began this adventure called
womanhood, we had no idea of the incredible joys or
sorrows that lay ahead. Nor did we know how much we would need each other.
Every day, we need each other still.

Me on my wedding day with my late beloved Mother
I love you and miss you so very very much.♥

Quote by my beloved 94 year old Grandmother

I don't want to curl my hair as I don't want to get married again.
Quote from my beloved 94 year old Grandmother during our latest visit.


Across the Universe

One Flaw In Women

Women have strengths that amaze men.

They bear hardships and they carry burdens,

but they hold happiness, love and joy.

They smile when they want to scream.

They sing when they want to cry.

They cry when they are happy

and laugh when they are nervous.

They fight for what they believe in.

They stand up to injustice.

They don't take "no" for an answer

when they believe there is a better solution.

They go without so their family can have.

They go to the doctor with a frightened friend.

They love unconditionally.

They cry when their children excel

and cheer when their friends get awards.

They are happy when they hear about

a birth or a wedding

Their hearts break when a friend dies.

They grieve at the loss of a family member,

yet they are strong when they

think there is no strength left.

They know that a hug and a kiss

can heal a broken heart.

Women come in all shapes, sizes and colors.

They'll drive, fly, walk, run or e-mail you

to show how much they care about you.

The heart of a woman is what

makes the world keep turning.

They bring joy, hope and love.

They have compassion and ideas.

They give moral support to their

family and friends.

Women have vital things to say

and everything to give.



“We wait all these years to find someone who understands us… someone who accepts us as we are, someone with a wizard's power to melt stone to sunlight, who can bring us happiness in spite of trials, who can face our dragons in the night, who can transform us into the soul we choose to be. Just yesterday I found that magical Someone is the face we see in the mirror. It's us and our homemade masks.” Richard Bach, Running from Safety: An Adventure of the Spirit

Life is made up of a thousand tiny miracles all joined together with love...........

Love is the only magic I belive in..............

We are always on our way to a miracle.............

I loved Smokey Robinson and the Miracles~Motown

I thrive on Love

Love and Kindness are very important to me.............

Love is all you need..........The Beatles

Cannot load images for some reason so far today
will try again later............

I asked God for strength that I might achieve;
I was made weak that I might learn humbly to obey,
I asked for help that I might do greater things;
I was given infirmity that I might do better things.
I asked for riches that I might be happy;
I was given poverty that I might be wise.
I asked for all things that I might enjoy life;
I was given life that I might enjoy all things.
I was given nothing that I asked for;
But everything that I had hoped for.
Despite myself, my prayers were answered;
I am among all people most richly blessed.
~Author Unknown

The greatest thing you will ever learn is just to love and be loved in return.

My Beloved Mother with her daughter as a new bride and new son in law
with my Uncle Lloyd who walked my Sister down the isle.

Love is the only magic I believe in.

One shoe can change a life

Love has no other desire but to fulfill itself
But if your love and must needs have desires,
Let these be your desires:

To melt and be like a running brook
That sings its melody to the night.
To know the pain of too much tenderness.
To be wounded by your own understanding of love;
And to bleed willingly and joyfully.
To wake at dawn with a winged heart
And give thanks for another day of loving;
To rest at the noon hour and meditate love's ecstasy;
To return home at eventide with gratitude;
And then to sleep with a prayer
For the beloved in your heart
And a song of praise upon your lips.

~ by Gibran Kahlil Gibran ~

Lessons Of Love

A ninety-one year old woman died
after living a long dignified life.
When she met God, she asked him something
that had long bothered her.
If Man was created in God's image,
and if all men are created equal,
why do people treat each other so badly?
God replied that each person who
enters our life has a unique
lesson to teach us.
And it is only through these
lessons that we learn about life,
people, relationships and God.
This confused the woman, so God began to explain.
When someone lies to you, it
teaches you that things are not
always as they seem. The truth is often far
beneath the surface. Look beyond the masks
people wear if you want to know their heart.
And remove your own masks to let people know yours.
When someone steals from you,
it teaches you that nothing is forever.
Always appreciate what you have,
for you never know when you might lose it.
And never, ever take your friends
and family for granted because today
is the only guarantee you have.
When someone inflicts an injury upon you,
it teaches you that the human state is a fragile one.
Protect and take care of your body
as best you can, it's the only thing
you are sure to have forever.
When someone mocks you,
it teaches you that no two people are alike.
When you encounter people who are
different from you, don't judge
them by how they look or act;
instead base your opinion on the contents of their heart.
When someone breaks your heart,
it teaches you that loving someone
does not always mean that person
will love you back. But don't turn your back
on love because when you find the right person,
the joy that one person brings will
make up for all the past hurts put together.
Times ten. When someone holds a grudge against you,
it teaches you that everyone makes mistakes.
When you are wronged, the most virtuous
thing you can do is forgive the offender without pretense.
Forgiving those who have hurt us is the most difficult,
the most courageous and the noblest thing man can do.
When a loved one is unfaithful to you,
it teaches you that resisting temptation
is man's greatest challenge.
Be vigilant in your resistance against
all temptation. By doing so you will be
rewarded with an enduring sense
of satisfaction far greater
than the temporary pleasure by which you were tempted.
When someone cheats you,
it teaches you that greed is the root of all evil.
Aspire to make your dreams come true,
no matter how lofty they may be.
Do not feel guilty about your success,
but never let an obsession with achieving
your goals lead you to engage in malevolent activities.
When someone ridicules you,
it teaches you that nobody is perfect.
Accept people for their merits and be
tolerant of their flaws.
Do not ever reject someone for
imperfections over which they have no control.
Upon hearing the Lord's wisdom,
the old woman became concerned
that there were no lessons to be learned
from man's good deeds.
God replied that man's capacity to love
is the greatest gift he has.
At the root of all kindness is love,
and each act of love also teaches us a lesson.
The woman's curiosity deepening,
God once again began to explain.
When someone loves us it teaches us that love,
kindness, charity, honesty,
humility, forgiveness and
acceptance can counteract all the evil in the world.
For every good deed, there is one less evil deed.
Man alone has the power to control
the balance between good and evil,
but because the lessons of love
are not taught often enough,
the power is too often abused.
When you enter someone's life,
whether by plan, chance or coincidence,
consider what your lesson will be.
Will you teach love or a harsh lesson of reality?
When you die, will your life
have resulted in more loving or hurting?
More comfort or pain?
More joy or sadness? Each one of
us has power over the balance
of love in the world. Use it wisely.

September Again

Keen rays of sunshine
Pierce frosty air
As splendid new colours
Are splashed here and there
Crimson on hilltops
Rust on the plain
Copper in valleys
And amber on grain
Our hearts brim with gladness
As all nature proclaims
Behold Autumns Glory
It is September Again
~Author Unknown to me.

Kiss the cook often and season everything with love

I love you SON♥
