Horse Therapy With Peyo

Above is a moving video of a special horse who brings healing to those in France.  Take a moment and feel the peace within spreading the smile on your face – especially when the patient and horse touch their heads together.

This is how I feel when I ride – an incredible peace and healing washes over me – especially when after riding, my horse and I snuggle similarly.  It’s a precious shared moment of connection!  It ignites my heartlight!

Shine On!

A Giggle Before Thanksgiving

agigglebeforethanksgiving

If you’re anything like me, you’re stressed out now with the start of the holiday season.  Thanksgiving is a tough holiday to prepare for and even though this year, I’m not cooking the bird, I have a few dishes to prepare for the meal at my sister’s house.  It should be fun this year as our Mom is going to be with us too which just makes me smile.  I want to take lots of photos and videos of her with all of us.  As our parents get older, it’s important to do that you know.  Every single moment and memory is precious and sometimes it’s only after, in hindsight, that we regret we didn’t do more.  So, I’m working hard to live with no regrets!

Anyway, I was thinking about decorating for Christmas because I always began after the Thanksgiving dinner was put away.  I started slowly at first, but often, I was well on my way by Sunday.  I can’t help myself!  I LOVE CHRISTMAS!

I came across the clever video below and laughed my way through it.  What a great stress reliever and giggle maker!  If you like animals, please click below and get into the Christmas mood.  You know, it’s almost time to Deck The Halls!

Shine On!

Love is in the Air…

Love is in the air…

While I was in the grocery store, I happened down the card aisle as I love cards and saw the sea of pinks and reds!  Ahhh…Valentine’s Day is coming ~ which of course, brought a huge smile to my face because I love sending out love and this is the holiday for just that!

How do you feel about Valentine’s Day?  Is it the holiday that you love (pun intended!) or is the one that you’d rather skip for personal reasons?  Do you feel it’s a lovers only occasion or are you like me and think that it’s the perfect time to send out love to everyone that you care for in your life?  You see, I’ve always been the type of person who wants you to know how much I love you because I never want any regrets.  In fact, I make sure when my boys leave everyday for school and my hubby goes off to work, that I kiss them all goodbye and tell them that I love them.  I just can’t help it ~ it’s just the way I’m wired!

I’ve told you how I’ve reached out with my cards to others and how I’ve said what I wanted to say without worries of silence on the other end of the phone ~ I’ve reconnected with family click here to read   with whom I’d grown apart through my cards and healed relationships…and hopefully I’ve made others’ days with a surprise card in the mail amidst the bills and junk mail.  You know how that feels don’t you?  That happy surprised feeling when you see that envelope in the mailbox ~ it’s the one you open first because you want to know what it says ~ it’s a priceless feeling which is why I send a card everyday!  I want everyone to get that special smile on their face!

How about you?  What keeps you back from sending cards?  Don’t know what to say?  Hate spending $5 or more for a card which doesn’t say what you want?  Do you find that you buy a card but never send it because you can’t find a stamp or the right address?  Or is it that you can’t find a card that you like?  Do you speak French, Portuguese, German, Italian or Spanish and want to write in your language but find that it’s difficult to find cards?

I have the perfect solution for you ~ you can now send a card from anywhere in the world to anywhere in the world!  You can send a card from your iPhone or android phone or you can send it from your computer ~ all you need is wifi which means you can be on the beach or out at the soccer fields and send a card!  We have over 16,000 cards in our card catalog or you can design you own in less than 10 minutes.  You can use what is written inside the card and/or add your own sentiment in your own language!  You can write in your own handwriting font or choose from our many different ones!  You can sign your name in your own handwriting as well!  You can add as many pictures to your card as you’d like and even attach a video via a QR code to make your card interactive!  There’s an online address book which also works as a personal assistant reminding you of upcoming special birthdays as well!

In 10 minutes, you can find a card, write your heartfelt message, even add a gift, gift card or even Mrs. Field’s cookies, click SEND and viola!  Your card is sent whenever you wish ~ you can schedule your card and gift to be sent up to a year in advance!

And the best part is that your card, even with all the pictures you’d like to put in it and even a video if you wish would never cost you more than $2 plus postage which is .46!  And yet, your recipient gets a real card in the mail and not an e-card from you!

Just click here!  The account is free and you only pay for the cards you want to send!  Who needs to hear from you this Valentine’s Day?  What are you waiting for?  Just try it ~

You have nothing to lose, but LOVE to gain!

What is we all sent love out everyday…imagine what a wonderful world this would be!

Love is in the air…enjoy the video below…perhaps you remember the song?

Gratitude Day 27 ~ Relish Life…

Journey. Let us relish life as we live it, find joy in the journey,

and share our love with friends and family.

One day each of us will run out of tomorrows. Thomas S. Monson

We are all on this journey called life…together or apart, our journey doesn’t end as I believe we carry our dreams and memories with us so that even if we are far apart in death, we are close together in heart.  I am sad that my Dad has passed and as I awoke this morning, I had to think of what day it is…and then it hit me, it’s the first Monday without Dad and it brought tears to my eyes ~ because that is how he would have thought…and I am so much like him at times.

He counted the days, the times, the special moments ~ so many people have told me how he remembered their birthdays, anniversaries and special days and always called them ~ spreading good cheer.  He never wrote down any of these dates, he had them all in his head.  Somehow cataloged ~ and he could tell you all about their families, the relationships and how they intertwined.  He was a secret keeper I know, he knew others’ family secrets, but never broke that bond of silence.  I never appreciated this with enthusiasm until now and surely from the other side, he’s laughing now that I have realized and am appreciating who he was.

He didn’t know he was running out of his tomorrows ~ a lesson for us all.  The sadness comes in waves as do the tears and giggles of some of the memories I have of him.  I don’t want to be sad all the time because I’m a ‘glass is half full’ type of gal.

So I’m ending on a high note ~ this song is for you Dad…

You Can Call Me Al ~ uq-gYOrU8bA

I am grateful for Al.

Passover Blessings…

Thoughtfulness comes in all sorts of disguises ~ a kind word, a smile, a hug…but for those far away, a phone call can help connect but after you hang up, there’s nothing left but the memory.

But a card, sent with a heartfelt message, is a talisman of connection, of thoughtfulness, of the message that I care.  For those of you who celebrate Passover, please enjoy the following video of Passover cards available…for under $1 a card (plus postage) you can send a loved one a heartfelt message right now from your computer without leaving home that they can hold onto ~ and give them the priceless feeling of surprise when they go to their mailbox and find your lovely card nestled in between the bills and junk mail.
