Yesterday’s Nursery Rhymes

If London bridges is always falling down and three blind mice are running with a carving knife and there is a big bad wolf huffing and puffing about to blow your house down, Meanwhile Hansel and Gretel are lost in the woods and if your not a duck,duck,duck then you are goosed…and what’s up with Humpty Dumpty his name alone is calling him fat which isn’t politically correct and he has a great fall, not to mention he is broken and can’t be put back together again!!! Even Georgie Porgie made the girls cry!
I could go on and on… But you get the negative picture…

Well, all these nursery rhymes got me wondering this morning…
What in the world were we taught as children? No wonder the majority of my generation are on anti-depressants, see therapists and keep looking for some purpose in their life …

It’s time to change all that…
Being a new grandmother keeps me wondering… Maybe teaching children how to live life filled with Love, Awe and Wonder would give them a sense of creating a positive acceptance of others and themselves!

So how’s this for a new little nursery rhyme…

A little boy dressed in blue
Saw a sweet girl named Sue.

As she played looking around she heard laughter and all different sounds…

She wondered about the little boy in blue and want up to him and asked if he wanted to play too,  she said “my name is Sue…”
They became friends that day
running around, enjoying their stay.

They played and played and they knew,

A feeling of love from making a new friend can do….

The moral…
Reach out  and smile at someone new, you may make a new friend too!

Just One More Hug…

Just One More Hug, has been the cry of my heart. Today it’s been two years since my dad has passed away. A day, a memory I will never forget. If only I could have one more hug… if only I was there to hold his hand, makes me wonder if his passing would hurt any less… I left the night I should have stayed, and I left many nights I didn’t need to stay…. and yet the pain within overwhelms my heart. Those words of comfort from others, don’t quite comfort my heart at this point, I know time will ease my pain. The connection of this little girl to her daddy was beyond words… and for that connection I am so very blessed and thankful to have had something so special with a man I called dad…. He is missed everyday… and today it’s been two years since I heard those dreaded words over the car phone as I was almost to St Ann’s… I just didn’t make it in time… if only I had stayed, if only I had one more hug… I miss you daddy, I miss hugging you….

Thank you dad for all your love and all the precious memories you’ve left behind… you’ve given this little girl a mind filled with love, awe and wonder…. ❤️

A Different Kind of Beautiful…

I heard the words “a different kind of beautiful” last night and for some reason those five words put me in a state of wonder…I couldn’t help but wonder about the beauty that surrounds us and the different perception others see. 

“They say” beauty is in the eye of the beholder…  So true…  Although, beautiful is something we see with our eyes and is recieved by our consciousness, True Beauty lives in our hearts and is embraced by our souls no matter how beautiful someone may think something  is or isn’t…

“A different kind of beautiful”…

How Much is Enough?

How much is enough? A question my dad would ask… He would laugh and say           “how much is enough anyway?” I remember it well, wondering the answer… How much is truly enough? 

Recently “enough” continues to come up. Wondering about myself, and where I am in life, I’ve heard these three little words over and over… “You are enough” 

A conformation of being still and knowing “I am enough” in all areas of my life! There have been doubts and struggles along the way, wondering about personal growth, accomplishments, and my own self image.  The message of “I am enough” has come through loud and clear recently.  A moment of accepting my life, the stage I am in and the season of wonder where life went, has been all too real.  Watching family pass, wondering about the existence of my life’s purpose and realizing the “next generation” is several generations ago… And all while knowing, no matter the wondering,  it’s all been enough! 

Life and its lessons, no matter the challenge, personal growth is its sweetest gift… When in doubt, remember this…    “You are enough!”

Teachers All Around…

Wondering when and if… Knowing Gods perfect timing and the energy of the universe is always at work… I couldn’t help but be in awe when this picture and comment popped up on FB this morning. A reminder of my love and passion of a posting 2 years ago today.

That same room today is a bedroom for my 90 year old dad… A unexpected situation, part of my story to be told as my lessons unfold! A teacher…. Who continues to teach me quietly.

A posting from a very special friend…
“Just like “Frosty” sings, “Put one foot in front of the other…soon you’ll be walking out that door” — as a published author! Another analogy I use (yes, I really quote Frost to my clients, friends, anyone who’ll listen — Hey, the best stuff can come from a cartoon — like Dory (you!), who says, “Just keep swimming. Just keep swimming”) is a skiing reference: “Don’t look too far down the hill”…but don’t stare at your skiis, either. You got all those? They’re what I tell myself, as I embark on this journey beside you, m’sister. Keeps the need for breathing into a brown paper bag at bay. :D”

Her downhill analogy caught my attention this morning and there I was Sunday skiing for the first time in 37 years… And my ski instructor said to me “don’t stare at your skies”… Reading her comment this morning from 2 years ago made me realize the forces of nature and all her energy has my back… God puts teachers in my life. Those who I am highly aware of and others I never saw as teachers until now!


An aha moment of unconditional Love knowing those who bring on the most stress in your life are the same ones who teach you the most profound lessons!
