Box of Love

There’s a lot of Love in that box. It’s filled with cookies, and cards, hot chocolate, a movie,personal notes, bath salts for mom, itunes cards for the children, and special nuts for the man of the house. The box is overflowing, not just with gifts, but with love. You can feel the love pouring out of it. You can feel the presence of the sender. It’s not the gifts, it the whole.
That’s the intention we should put into everything we do – Love. You can feel, see, and hear the difference between a blank hug, gift, or word, and those filled with Love. You feel it in places too; in your home, business, and even in your being. Be mindful of what energy you carry, and bring with you, wherever you go. Bring love, happiness, and joy. Do everything with love.

Found but Lost

It once was found, but now is lost

But, lost by someone else you see 

For in the finding you may lose something else

Its all a gift you see

We never really own anything. Sometimes we have things for a moment, sometimes we keep things for a lifetime, but that’s limited too isn’t it. It’s all fluid. Whatever we have at this moment with objects, people in our lives, jobs, activities, etc. It’s a gift, and here for enjoyment now. Our never ever ending eternity of now.

Last summer we traveled to visit my step daughter as she opened up her new photography studio. While visiting, my stepson found Ray Ban sun glasses. They had scratches on one lens, but we had them repaired and my husband enjoyed them until ironically our step daughters next visit here, when they were lost, for someone else to find and enjoy.

When you own a home and land and you move, change jobs, or end a relationship, slowly acquaintances from those association become more and more distant, and new people in your life emerge. You miss and want you’re old friends, and property, but you also welcome the addition of the new.

You get older, your children grow up, your parents need you more, and everything changes, all of our bodies, minds, interest, and surrounding.

We’re continually changing, adapting, and this flow that’s continually going is always bringing, and always taking.

Life goes on, and so shall we. Let’s enjoy our gifts of today, and whatever comes our way.

Love The One Your With!

Someone once said to me that Love is a choice, and being a woman with so much feeling and emotion, I disagreed with him. Years have gone by since then, busy running through my life, and now that I am trying to be still more, and have taken a step back to observe and listen, I think that he is right.  I watch and listen to my married friends, and friends in relationships, and I see that with just a change in perception, a choice, that things including feelings would be so much better. 


I listen to men and women complain about their spouse or significant other, about what they do or don’t do and how it makes them feel.  But what about what they do…  It is very easy a single person to see this, because we do not have anyone doing anything for us.  So women and men appreciate all that your spouse or significant other does for you.  If they bring you so much as a glass of water, or carry your dishes to the sink, or if they have a job that helps support your household, then love them, appreciate them.  If they stay home with children, clean your home, do your laundry, pay your bills, love them, appreciate them. If they are sick or unable to do anything but love you, love them, and appreciate them.  If you’re unhappy still, do not blame your partner, make changes to do things that will bring joy to your life.  Choose happiness, choose to focus and appreciate what you do have. 


If you are still not getting it, think about it this way… imagine for a moment that you are alone, homeless, and wondering where your next meal was coming from, really think about how you would feel.  Wouldn’t you appreciate all that you have now?  Wouldn’t you really appreciate all that the other person is giving you now, as a great gift?  Don’t worry about the little things.  They are just that, little things.  If you have a roof over your head, food in the pantry, and someone who cares if you make it home at night… you are blessed!  It is your perception that needs to change.  So choose to appreciate and love the one your with!
