Gentle Waves

Many of us find peace at the beach. For me it is a great place to recharge my internal batteries. If the beach is your thing and your batteries are running on low, I hope you can recharge and draw some peace from this picture.

Love from Sophie

Sophie sends her love in this autographed photo. She is absolutely the sweetest thing, and makes us smile many times every day.  I hope she helps you, too.

Down By The River

This is a beautiful, peaceful place. Drink in the beauty and let it soothe your mind and soul for a moment...or ten.

In Stitches

Hey everyone! It's been a while (again), but I've been a bit preoccupied with what has been going on in the world for the last few months. We won't talk about that now, though. I think we could all use a little chuckle.

When I sat down to write, I looked into my drafts folder and found this fellow looking back at me from an otherwise empty page. What is his story? Let's listen in and find out.

"Hey Spud, what happened to you?"

"Aw Doc, they put a newbie on the plow and he dang near sliced me in too" groaned Spud. "Can you fix me up?"

"Yep, but I'm afraid it will leave a scar and you won't make it to the gourmet aisle. Nope, you'll probably end up bagged and tagged at Walmart" said the Doc.

"That's okay, Doc, at least I won't end up in one of those new frou-frou recipes, you know boiled, whipped, beaten and baked, then drowned in cheese, or spiraled into boiling oil. No, I want to be fried up nice and crispy in some hot bacon grease.   Now that's the way to go."

The Doc was nearly in stitches himself, and laughing he said "good luck, Spud. I'll be looking for you in Wally World."

Are You Really Living?

If you are not living this moment, 
you are not really living. - Eckhart Tolle

I'm not sure that this even needs an explanation, so I'll pose a few questions instead. 

How long has it been since you took a quiet walk in the woods? 

When was the last time you sat outside in the sun's warmth eating an ice cream cone? 

What did you talk about over dinner last night?

These are examples of moments to be lived...fully and completely, and these are times we are more likely to "live in the moment". However, each day is made up of moments that too often pass by without a thought or glance. 

Think about this next time you see the sunset or watch the birds at your feeder or visit with a friend. Cherish the moments. Live life!
