TRULY A GIFT TO BE TREASURED FOREVER

BACK HOME from a historical and memorable family trip to Germany with all our children, their partners and grandchildren. Everyone is grateful for the opportunity and the experience, truly a gift to be treasured forever. We are blessed to have a family where we all respect each other and tolerate our differences, making it possible to enjoy each others company in peace and share all sorts of adventures. I wish, this would be the norm for everyone …

SONG OF THE FLOWER

I am a kind word uttered and repeated 
By the voice of Nature; 
I am a star fallen from the 
Blue tent upon the green carpet. 
I am the daughter of the elements 
With whom Winter conceived; 
To whom Spring gave birth; I was 
Reared in the lap of Summer and I 
Slept in the bed of Autumn. 

At dawn I unite with the breeze 
To announce the coming of light; 
At eventide I join the birds 
In bidding the light farewell. 

The plains are decorated with 
My beautiful colors, and the air 
Is scented with my fragrance. 

As I embrace Slumber the eyes of 
Night watch over me, and as I 
Awaken I stare at the sun, which is 
The only eye of the day. 

I drink dew for wine, and hearken to 
The voices of the birds, and dance 
To the rhythmic swaying of the grass. 

I am the lover’s gift; I am the wedding wreath; 
I am the memory of a moment of happiness; 
I am the last gift of the living to the dead; 
I am a part of joy and a part of sorrow. 

But I look up high to see only the light, 
And never look down to see my shadow. 
This is wisdom which man must learn. 

Kahlil Gibran

Today’s Words to Ponder

Just a reminder in case your mind is playing tricks on you today:
 
You matter
You are loved
Your laughter is beautiful
And your presence on this Earth makes a difference whether you see it or not.

Thought for today…

Just a reminder in case your mind is playing tricks on you today:

You matter
You are loved
Your laughter is beautiful
And your presence on this Earth makes a difference whether you see it or not.

THOUGHT OF THE DAY

“Age is a quality of mind:
If you have left your dreams behind
If hope is cold,
If you no longer look ahead,
If your ambition-fires are dead,
Then you are old.

But if from life you take the best,
And if in life you keep the jest,
If love you hold,
No matter how the years go by,
No matter how the birthdays fly,
You are not old. ”
