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……..
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.
Thinking about regrets, it is my guess that every person on this Earth could verbalize at least one thing they wished they had or had not done. It is also my belief that having regrets in life is just part of being human. We live, we learn, and if we never had a regret then I am not sure we would be truly living and/or learning. We make the very best decision we can at the time and hope and pray for the best.
Now we know we can’t go back to re-create our past, but we can think about our future selves. So my question for you today is, “What is something you will regret if you do not complete/accomplish/do in your lifetime?”
~ Thank you so very much for taking the time to visit and comment. Your presence here is a blessing to me and so many others.
Wishing all of you who care for others a very blessed Mothers’ Day Weekend.
In the spirit of caring for others, my question for you today is, “Since becoming chronically ill, what is one of the greatest acts of kindness you have been shown?”
~ Thank you very much for taking time to stop by and comment. I deeply appreciate the sharing of ideas that takes place among this communtiy and your interactions are such a joy to participate in.
May today be kind to you. ~
With 2020 just around the corner, I have been thinking about blog posts for next year. One of my goals, besides keeping the Living Our Best Life weekly questions, is to review at least 6 books that are written by an author who is chronically ill.
Not only do I know what it is like to live with multiple chronic illnesses, I also know how much work goes into writing and self-publishing a book and the enormous amount of effort it takes to promote your publications. So next year I would like to help out my fellow spoonies and promote their work.
If you would like me to do a review of your book, that I will purchase, please leave me a message in the comment section. The book does not have to be about illness, but the author must live with at least one chronic ailment.
I look forward to reading your work!

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…………..

Released from their servitude
Sweet, precious freedom

that you experience true love
soaking in the sweetness of being loved for who you are
no matter what your failings, limitations or inabilities that may fill your body
that you feel safe in the arms of another
held when you are unsure or scared
lying closely as your heartbeats create a synchronous rhythm of comfort and respect
that your hand will be held with gentleness and caring to help guide you through life
you are comforted when ill
and protected when you are weak
that you find joy in their presence
your 1,000th kiss will feel like the first
and your day will not be complete without seeing the beauty of your love reflected back in their face
life put you on the coaster
to go for the ride
may there be some happy turns
