With This Ring

A painting we have in our bedroom given to us as a wedding gift
from my dear friend Bev♥

Why we wear our wedding ring on the 4th finger

I love this explanation.

Some people come into our lives and quickly go.
Some people move our souls to dance
They awaken us to understanding
with teh passing whisper of their wisdom.

Some people make the sky
More beautiful to gave upon
They stay in our lives for awhile
Leave footprints on our hearts
And we are never ever the same............

To my darling cousin who came yesterday for a visit
I love you
You made my day♥

I believe each human being has the potential to change
to transform one's own attitude, no matter how difficult
the situation. We are human beings and we have this marvelous
brain and marvelous heart, so there is potential to develop a proper
mental attitude through which we can have a happy more peaceful life.
Insight from the Dalai Lama

from my dear friend Dani's blog

thank you Dani

for this beautiful verse

Blessed are you who take time to listen to difficult speech:
For you help us to know that if we persevere,
We can be understood.
Blessed are you who walk with us in public places,
And ignore the stares of strangers,
For in your companionship,
We find havens of peace.
Blessed are you who never bid us to “hurry up”,
And more blessed are you
Who do not snatch tasks from our hands to do them for us,
For often we need time rather than help.
Blessed are you who stand beside us
As we enter new and untried ventures,
For our failures will be outweighed
By the times we surprise ourselves and you.
Blessed are you who ask for our help,
For our greatest need is to be needed.
Blessed are you when you assure us,
That the one thing that makes us individuals
Is not in our peculiar muscles,
Nor in our wounded nervous systems,
Nor in our difficulties in learning,
Nor any exterior difference.
But is in our inner, personal, individual self
Which no infirmity can diminish or erase.
