time goes so quickly
love fiercely laugh frequently
make your moments count
Bless you for stopping by today, I always appreciate your visits. I have decided to take a summer break from blogging as my oldest daughter will be leaving for college in 6 weeks and I want to spend a lot more time away from my computer. Time flies………don’t let it pass you by.
See you in September……..
When hatred wins, we all lose.
Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate:
only love can do that.
In this world Hate never yet dispelled hate. Only love dispels hate. This is the law,
Ancient and inexhaustible.
– Gautama Buddha
We love because God first loved us. Whoever says, “I love God,” but hates his brother is a
liar. The one who does not love his brother whom he has seen cannot love the God whom
he has not seen.
The best among you is the one who doesn’t harm others with his tongue and hands.
– Prophet Muhammad
Retaliation is counter-poison and poison breeds more poison. The nectar of Love alone
can destroy the poison of hate.
– Mahatma Gandhi
It is easy to hate and it is difficult to love. This is how the whole scheme of things works.
All good things are difficult to achieve; and bad things are very easy to get.
Kindness in words creates confidence. Kindness in thinking creates profoundness.
Kindness in giving creates love.
– Lao Tzu
I believe much trouble would be saved if we opened our hearts more.
– Chief Joseph
Racial prejudice, anti-Semitism, or hatred of anyone with different beliefs has no place in
the human mind or heart.
– Billy Graham
And where love ends, hate begins.
– Leo Tolstoy

Spreading love to all

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.
seeps into your mind like an early morning fog,
slowly expanding into all the open trenches
finding places in the mind you didn’t know existed
enlarging to leave no room for productive thoughts
protecting its position like a vicious dog guarding it’s home
settling in like the dust in the carpet
seemingly unnoticed and determined to anchor down for the long haul
I am ready to clean house
sweeping it out, not under the rug
searching for all the hiding places
wanting to turn this into a childhood game i no longer want to play
i will find you
searching, one-by-one, the hidden rooms of my mind,
evicting the fear and pain
refilling the room with light and love and hope
slamming the door shut with a vengence
securing the deadbolt and allowing the love to expand to fill each and every room.
