We all have something wonderful to appreciate every day! A lot of us take it for granted you see. We run around being so busy that some of us fail to slow down and enjoy what the good lord blesses us with. It is called “LIFE.” It is precious, it can be short or long, it can be happy or sad. It is what you make of it! Our time on earth is not guaranteed to any of us. If there is a loved one that you have not spoken to in a long time…call them. If you have put off that dream vacation for the right time…do it now.

Time waits for no one and that is a fact. We cannot keep putting off until tomorrow because tomorrow may never come. Find what makes you happy and live, laugh and enjoy every single moment. Don’t have regrets because in life we all are going to make mistakes and that just makes us smarter and stronger.

Take a minute out of your busy day look around and enjoy the beauty that is “LIFE.” It is in the innocence of your child! It is the sun coming out in the morning, the birds chirping, the flowers blooming, the first snow. It is the fact that you are healthy and can see these amazing things and hear them with your ears. Some are not as fortunate! Cherish and be thankful for every single second that you have here on earth.

Every single day before your feet touch the floor in the morning give thanks for something beautiful…..I know I do! I came up with words that Identify life for me they are; love, children, blessed, educational, memorable, adventurous, journey, faith, humorous, challenging, breathtaking and wonderful. It would be interesting to see what others come up with. You can choose as many words as you like. May you all have a wonderful, joyous and blessed life!

Quote for today……. “There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.”

This is a re-blog from Aatma Namaste ॐ Spiritual Bliss ॐ! I found it very spiritual and enlightening and hope you will too!

Walk your path one step at a time .

Life’s circumstances are not always what you may wish them to be. The pattern of life does not necessarily go as you plan. Beyond any understanding, you may at times be led in different directions that you never imagined, dreamed, or designed.

Yet if you had never put any effort into choosing a path, or try to carry out your dream, then perhaps you would no direction at all.

Rather than wondering about or questioning the direction your life has taken, accept the fact that there is a path before you now.

Shake off the ”why’s” and ”what if’s”, and rid yourself of confusion. Whatever was – is in the past. Whatever is – is what’s important. The past is a brief reflection. The future is yet to be realized. Today is here.

Walk your path one step at a time – with courage, faith and determination. Keep your head up, and cast your dreams to the stars. Soon your steps will become firm and your footing will be solid again. A path that you never imagined will become the most comfortable direction you could ever hope to follow.

Keep your belief in yourself and walk into your new journey. You will find it magnificent, spectacular, and beyond your wildest imaginings.

Today’s Quote……No one else can speak the words on your lips. Drench yourself in words unspoken. Live your life with arms wide open. Today is where your book begins. The rest is still unwritten.
Natasha Bedingfield

My Family-1!

As I sit here thinking of so many memories of my children it brings home that I haven’t seen them in a while. Actually the last time I saw most of them was last year New Years Eve! You wouldn’t believe that My husband and I live in Carson City Nevada and they live in San Jose CA, Gilroy CA, and Union City CA. Let’s not forget Maryland!

I have 4 Daughters and 1 Son and 11 Grandchildren they are my world! Unfortunately life gets in the way! I should really rephrase that because by no means should unfortunately and life be in the same sentence. I am 58 years old! I am happy, healthy and have a wealth of blessings. I have friends that I have known for years real friends. You know the ones that you can count on one hand! So really life is good. I just miss my beautiful wonderful kids and Grand kids!

Sometimes circumstances get in the way and time moves entirely to fast. This is what I am feeling today. Time is moving to me at the speed of light.
Don’t get me wrong I know that I am blessed and complaining doesn’t help but in this case it does. My husband got a promotion which is awesome.
He is the new kid on the block which means no time off. All the timing just did not fit in to us getting to CA. We all have made arrangements to see each other New Year’s Eve of 2013! So here I am today missing them like crazy and anticipating for the year’s end to arrive.

I know that I am so lucky and blessed because I am married to my best friend and I love all of my children with all of my heart. Some people don’t know what that is. So today I am missing them and remembering all the good times we had together and anticipating new and fun memories.

There is nothing like family!

Quote for today….Having a place to go – is a home. Having someone to love – is a family. Having both – is a blessing. ~Donna Hedges
