May Blessings…

“May flowers always line your path and sunshine light your day.
May songbirds serenade you every step along the way.
May a rainbow run beside you in a sky that’s always blue.
And May happiness fill your heart each day your whole life through.”
~Irish Blessing

I saw this lovely blessing recently and thought I’d pass it along to you today.  Seeing that it’s the first Friday of May, I thought a little bit of blessings, love and rainbows might do the trick to end the work week on a high note.  No matter that it may have been a long week for you (because it certainly has been for me), the weekend is on its way and that’s always a good thing in my book!

Family time, a bit of relaxation and some time to recoup before Monday starts the week again.  It’s funny, on our calendars, we start the week with Sunday, but I have never felt that the week begins on Sunday.  Instead, I’ve always thought of Sunday as the day of rest, my favorite day of the week before the hustle and bustle begins again.  Perhaps it’s the Spanish life that beats inside of me or my Mother’s mantra that Sunday is a day of rest.  For whatever reason, Friday is the winding down day and Monday revs up the week for me.  Am I alone is this way of thinking?  What’s your first day of the week in your head?

Take a moment today to look around you ~ recently we’ve had a lot of rain and nature has blossomed everywhere it seems…a lush green has settled in my yard and the surrounding areas and it looks so beautiful.  I believe Spring has Sprung…

‘May the month of May bring you beauty to surround you,

love to protect you and hope to ignite your soul!’ ~ Misifusa’s Blessing

Happy Friday!


The Future is not ours to know…

The future is not ours to know,

and it may never be.

So let us live and give our best and give it lavishly!

I love this card because it’s great for a Friday ~ the start of the weekend where we give ourselves permission to relax, to enjoy, to let off steam and love our lives.  As refreshing as a crystal clear pool feels on a hot summer day, the weekend is lived lavishly…and we can give our best to all.  Now, fast forward to Monday and the magic fades…my challenge to you is that you keep that joie de vivre all week long!

You can, you know.  Just carve out 10 minutes minimum to just enjoy ~ think happy thoughts, think of something fun you can plan to do in the future ~ use your imagination to feel that sun on your face, and just ‘be’ for a bit ~ no guilt, just enjoy your life…take those few minutes to make someone else’s life happier ~ I don’t need to tell you that what you GIVE out lavishly comes back to you!  Just be your giving self…and give of yourself to someone else whether it be listening, smiling, patience, kindness or even a hug.  No expectations ~ just send out peace and happiness to yourself and all who come into your world.

I am hoping that the above will be good advice for you as well as for me.  I love my FB page The Presents of Presence because everyday it reminds me that we only have the GIFT OF TODAY!  If today was your last day, did you spend it happily?  Will someone look back on this day and remember you in a positive way?  It’s never too late to make someone’s day special…you can do it in so many different ways.

Here’s my PRESENT to you today…
