Maybe it is just me, but when I am experiencing a bad moment, I like to shut my eyes and visualize another place, doing my best to transport myself to another, more pleasant location.
If you do this too, do you have a favorite place you like to think about and if so, I would love to read about it, if you care to share. As always, thank you for taking time to be here, I always appreciate your visit.
The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of those depths.
Over the past several weeks I have read about ways that this global situation has brought out the very best and the very worst in people. But it is comforting to know that all of you amazingly kind, loving, and generous people here on WP go out of your way to help others as you are able.
So my question for you this week is, “If you were given $100, or the equivalent, and you had to give it away, what would you do with it?”
I look forward to reading your awesome responses, and I thank you in advance for your comments.

In light of all that is going on in the world, I decided to change directions with my question of the week. My heart and soul are craving uplifing words and I am sure I am not alone.
So, my question for all of you amazingly awesome people out there is, “What is one of your favorite quotes, sayings, verses, poems, or mantras that lifts your heart and mind when you are feeling overwhelmed?”
~ Thank you so much for visiting and commenting, please take care of yourself, and each other.
On the day that many associate with love, I would like to send a HUGE thank you to those of you who help care for others. Chronic illness puts an enormous strain on relationships and too many people who are stricken are eventually abandoned to continue their fight on their own. When I read about situations like these, it literally breaks my heart. No one ever wants to rely on someone else to take care of them, but life has a way of putting us in situations that we do not deserve or desire.
So to all you caregivers out there, Thank You again for giving of yourself so unshelfishly, for staying, for loving, for listening, for assisting, for praying, for loving and for encouraging healing. You have no idea what a huge blessing you are for those of us lucky enough to have you in our lives.
During the holiday season, we tend to spend time reflecting on upon our past. There is something about the music, the lights, the gathering of friends and family and religous services that can send our minds straight back to when we were a child or those special moments shared with a significant other.
Despite the societal push to buy, buy, buy, when I think about past holidays I rarely remember the gifts, but instead the emotions I felt during the celebrations.
I have always found it much more enjoyable to give gifts and watch a person’s face light up as the package is unwrapped. As the old saying goes, it is much better to give then to receive and I have always believed this to be true.
So my question for all you amazing people this week is, What gift have you given that still makes you smile when you think about it?
Thank you for taking the time to comment…..
” I will honour Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all year.”
The Holidays, even if you budget for them, have a way of putting a strain on your wallet. While my kids were younger, I worked very hard to make sure they didn’t notice our limited budget by keeping Christmas a fun and active time while remaining focused on the true meaning of this holy season.
