Today is unique. It has never occurred before and it
will never be repeated. At midnight it will end, quietly,
suddenly, totally, forever. But the hours between now
and then are opportunities with eternal possibilities.
There will be good days and there will be bad days and
lately, I have experienced them both. Sometimes I feel
and wish I could turn the time and be be like I was
before but I know I must not call it quits but press on
and trust God that tomorrow will be a better day.
The secret of happiness is to be free of fear. Fear is
the like a toxin that runs through much of our thinking
It feeds on insecurity , feeling of loss, loneliness,
inadequacy and attachment. You are lovable and loving.
Accept this as Truth. Appreciate and care for yourself -
truly, deeply, intensely, in a way that reflects your real
value. Then you will automatically have the same regards
for all other living beings and things - I try to look at the
positive and keep this mind and I trust this helps in
some ways.... it definitely helps to lift my spirits up too.
I will have to face challenges with courage and definitely
some determination. I will try to overcome barriers that
may hinder my quest for a better day tomorrow and I know
it is not going to be easy. I will take one day at a time.
I believe there is hope for a brighter and better future.
I count my blessings that I have friends like you
Giving so much of yourself each time you visit
with your kind thoughts and comments. Oh!
how I look forward to your vists ... as they
surely brighten my days. This is something I love.
It is my dream this very moment for your days to
be most blessed and beautiful. May your days
be so special overflowing with God's love and care.
Have a nice time preparing for a nice .....
"Thanksgiving Day" later. Take care!
Winter is an etching, spring a watercolor, summer an oil
painting and autumn a mosaic of them all. Autumn is the
eternal corrective. It is ripeness and color and a time of
maturity. Let me express my thanks to all the artists here
who have produced such lovely "AUTUMN" graphics - things
of beauty of the season done so well....the colors so well
blended and the pictures ... just beautiful. To all the
artists .... thank you so much for the graphics.
Sometimes things happen to you and at the time they seem
painful and unfair, but in reflection you realize that without
overcoming those obstacles you would have never realised
your potential strength, will power or heart.
Everything happens for a reason. Nothing happens by chance
or by means of good or bad luck. Illness, injury, love, lost
moments of true greatness and sheer stupitidy all occur to
test the limits of your soul. Without these small tests, whether
they be events, illness or relationships life would be like a
smoothly paved straight flat road to nowhere, safe and
comfortable but dull and utterly pointless.
These past few months have been hard for me but I look
forward to a new and better day tomorrow . I believe
things can get only better . I look forward to your visits
very much but please bear with me if I do not respond
immediately. Thank you for your thoughts and kindness.
Take care and have a good day day!
My dear Friend, I have a little message I need to
send your way, It maybe small, but it is sincere
Here from my heart today. You knew just what
to do, You knew just what to say, Thank you for
your thoughtfulness ... you brighten up my day.
Start the day off by saying " thank you" first thing,
to whatever higher power you believe in. Be thankful
and grateful for all that you are, for all that you have,
for all that you have experienced. Decide that today
is going to be a great day and make it one.
Remember it is your choice and always is.
Make every day count. Appreciate every moment
and take from it everything that you possibly can,
for you may never be able to experience it again.
I am grateful for your kindness, I am glad for all you do,
For being there when needed I send my thanks to you.
I pray God's Fragrant Blessings" for you on every day
In every way, this very day, tomorrow and always.
Hi, my friend, how are you? Just want to let you know I am just
dropping by today so I can say "Hello" to you today. How sweet
to have such lovely friends How nice to hear, "I am praying for you,
Thank you my friends, for being so dear For showing love and your
fervent prayers. I pray your days are special and your evenings full
of peace. May happiness envelope you and all your worries cease.
Let me just go ahead and update you on my situation.
What actually happend is that I had a stroke or heart attack in March
as I mentioned in "GG" earlier. The blood pressure keeps going up and
down and the heart has an irregular rythm and doctors say this can cause
another stoke at any time which could be fatal. I was on the machines
again on Tuesday and saw for myself the pressure going up from 148/85
to 187/96 in a matter of minutes and I was not doing anything at all.
Next instance it is down to 130/81. It keeps fluctuating all the time and
this is a real concern. The previous attack has caused some damages
to the heart and it cannot be rectified. There are now some abnormalities
to it. I am also not as agile as I was before. I tire easily and cannot seem
to concentrate too long on anything. I will of course do all I can to be here
as long as I am able to. I am trusting God to heal me. I trust with God's
blessings to get over this and be here for a long, long while ... excuse me
if I am not here as often as I was before but hopefully things change for the
better in due time. To believe this is to find the
strength and courage that lies within me. It is time to
pick up the pieces and begin again with hope. I
believe, wonderful surprises are just waiting to happen.
Do not worry about me and look at the positive. I value each and every
friendship here and of course I look forward to all your visits. I do not want
this condition to control me but I do want to continue the same way as
always. Life is meant to be lived happily and not let set-backs affect us,
but to push us to better days ahead.
