Oh May, What A Treat!

What a treat to get up every morning and greet the day ahead!  Don’t you think?  As a glass 1/2 full type of gal, I enjoy mornings and the clean slate on which to etch the day.  As I sip my morning coffee, I begin my day in quiet stillness.  It’s my favorite time of day.

Ode to May’s Treat

I hope that today brings you peace within. 

May the sun shine into your life. 

If you have clouds and rain as I do, know that it is within the darkness that the stars become brighter. 

May gratitude and peace surround you.

May your wishes be fulfilled.

May you revel in God’s love.

Open your heartlight to the Universe and allow love to flow to you, from you and within you. 

May healing encompass you. 

May peace within you germinate and grow. 

May love fill your heart to overflowing and may you extend that love to connect with all whom you meet. 

May forgiveness be yours – to be given and received. 

May mercy follow you and ignite your being. 

May grace and dignity walk beside with you. 

May you take the higher path without stumbling. 

May joy guide you on your path. 

May this day be a new beginning for each of us!

Shine On!

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!

Thanks Mom…

Mother’s Day is around the corner…for many of us, it’s happy day as it’s OUR DAY because we are Mothers…there are those who are not Moms, but have Moms who are living and that makes it special as well…then there are those whose Moms have passed away and for them it’s a bittersweet day…

My friend JAngel recently had her Grandmother and her Mom pass away within months of each other and I find it so sad to think of how this coming holiday will be for her and her lovely family.  As a wonderful Mom herself, I know her family will pay special attention to her and honor her on Mother’s Day…and for that, I am grateful.

I am grateful that my Mom and I had lunch recently and I love how our relationship has evolved over the years.  We’ve all seen the comics of how daughters grow up and grow apart from their Moms and then realize that Mom knew what she was talking about ~ what an amazing journey Mothers and Daughters travel.  I know I am very blessed to enjoy my Mom’s wisdom and company every day and I can’t wait to honor her on her special day!

Moms come in all different forms and they don’t necessarily have to be your own biological Mom to be honored on Mother’s Day!  Many of us are blessed with women who seem to just be so very nurturing that the bond that you have with them is as strong as any Mom’s could be.  Hopefully during your life, you’ve been blessed with a special woman (or even women!)  in your life who love you with all of her heart…

I know it’s early to talk about Mother’s Day, but I don’t want you to forget to thank your Mom, take a moment and be grateful for her patience and love and if you can, give her a heartfelt hug ~ she deserves it!

My gift to you is a card to your Mom for free…no pressure, just spreading love.

Faith…

Faith ~ When you come to the edge of all the light you have known

and are about to step out into the darkness

faith is knowing one of two things will happen…

there will be something to stand on or you will be taught how to fly.

My childhood friend AAngel sent this to me for my birthday this year and I was mesmerized by it’s simplicity and it’s powerful ‘prayer’ which continues to inspire me.  I thought I’d share this one with you today considering it’s the first of May ~ and I always think that the beginning of a month is like a mini New Year’s Day ~ it’s a new start, like a new dawn, but for the month!

Fear plagues me sometimes and I’ve definitely let it get the best of me in the past ~ I’ve not tried to do things, haven’t gone with my gut feeling because I doubted myself and allowed fear to win and I’ve even allowed opportunities to pass me by because I was frightened of what could happen.

But somehow on this stormy May morning, I”m empowered instead of weakened and it’s just what I needed today…so I’m sharing!

May FAITH be with you today and everyday…

Success is Ours!

Let’s learn to FLY Together!
