Just like in a fairytale, a genie pops out of a bottle and you are instantly granted three wishes………..what would they be?
- The rules: you can’t ask for more wishes, and you can’t ask anything for yourself.
~ May you experience and display kindness and compassion today.
When the sun begins to stream down on you, please don’t hide. Fill yourself with gratefulness and allow the healing rays to soak deep into your being……
~ I hope today is treating you well, this is my prayer for you.
Kindness reigns from high
May humans follow in suit
Spreading love to all
` wishing all a blessed Earth Day
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.
` “You have not lived today until you have done something for someone who can never repay you.”
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.
Te quiero me amor!
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 wanted to take a moment today to thank each of you who bless me with your presence here on simplychronicallyill.
Every one of you have enriched my life with your kindness, comments, knowledge and encouragement and I am thankful for every visit.
Wishing all you a day of peace, love, laughter, smiles and kindness.
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.
In my latest book, Frugal Seeds Christmas Edition: 101 Ways to Celebrate the Holidays on a Budget, I share many of the ways we celebrated the Christmas season while keeping our focus on the reason for the season.
I would be greatly humbled if you would take a moment to check it out. It is now available on Amazon in paperback and e-book and can be read FREE on KindleUnlimited. Thank you.
“I will honour Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all year.”
the rustling of leaves holding tightly to their branches
the crunching sounds of fallen leaves under your feet
the whirling of the leaves dancing in the wind
and geese honking their good-byes overhead
the lonely cry of an owl
the cool rains that fall down from heaven
the music of this magical season…………..
