Be Still…

In keeping with the Hawaiian theme, these photos remind me that there is always a way, even when life is really hard! There are days that can be extremely challenging!  Over the past 48 hours, I have been faced with many “1st world problems”…  The wheel bearings broke on our trailer, loaded with 400 lbs of chickens, on the way to the processor.  The kitchen remodel is still not complete.  The evil fox killed my dear, sweet Big White.  The brand new dishwasher has an electronic screen that says, “leak detected” and will not turn on.  The weather is cold and my seedlings are unhappy.    I think I need to call the “WHAAAAAAAmbulance”!    Continue reading “Be Still…”

I wish you nothing but love and joy today, as you celebrate the amazing women in your life!  May they teach you, build you up and fill your heart with love!    Find gratitude in the thought that they have guided you, loved you and many times, put your own happiness and well-being ahead of their own.  These women have given you a seed of love that will bloom for all eternity.  Tend to that love, allowing it to flourish for a lifetime…

Love Yourself…Embrace Yourself…Just Be You…

One of my favorite places to visit, in West Michigan, is The Frederick Meijer Botanical Gardens and Sculpture Park. Each Spring, hundreds of butterflies and moths, from around the world, are hatched and released in the large tropical greenhouse.  There is something so breathtaking about these “Flutterbys”.  Being surrounded by “butterflies”, which we all know are fairies in disguise, is truly a magical experience!  Continue reading “Be Still…”

We have so much to learn from the lotus flower…

This flowering plant grows from the bottom of steams and murky ponds.  When ready, it rises above the water and blooms, sharing its beauty for all the world to see.  When darkness blankets the Earth, the Lotus closes its petals and descends back into the depths of the water, only to resurface the next day.  This blooming miracle is fully grounded in the muddy earth, yet reaches for the heavens, daily. 

How amazing is it that this stunning flower resides in such muddy waters, yet remains unsoiled…

Regardless of your life’s struggles, remember the lesson of the Lotus flower.

Live in Full Bloom!

As the time change leaves us feeling dazed and confused, we must remember one thing…life is about balance.  It is ok to stop, relax and Just Be.  Clear your mind, knowing everything will be there waiting tomorrow.  For today, Just Be and experience all of the joy life has to offer.
